60+ Ways To Wish “Happy Birthday” To The One You Love

No pressure, right? Just the one day of the year your person is celebrated for the wonderful fact that they exist. But there’s your advantage. This is your person. You know him or her. You can predict where yesterday’s socks ended up last night, what the peanut butter will look like when you open the jar, which movie they’d watch again, what message will speak your love straight to their heart. You? You can do this.

  • Scroll right by if a message doesn’t connect. Your first impression… well, you know. There are plenty to consider.
  • Keep in mind the preferences of your One and Only, not necessarily what you would like. Longer sentiments may make you yawn, but if you fell in love with a “word person,” it might be just the thing. Or vice versa. Short and sweet can hit the mark, too.
  • Browse with an open mind about using our messages as brainstorming material to write your own. Borrow here and there, add a bit, and make it your own. If you find The. Perfect. Message. though, feel free! It’s on us.

Presentation isn’t just for fancy restaurants. Use your best card stock for this one and fold your card with care. If you don’t have an envelope handy, try gift wrapping your card. It’s pretty special. It’s for your One True Love.
