What is the best message for a friend’s birthday?

The best message for a friend’s birthday is one that reflects your relationship with this person. Do you have a ton of fun together? Then send them something goofy that references a wild time you’ve had with them. Have they changed your life with their friendship? Maybe pen a few examples of how your relationship has changed you for the better. Whatever you write, make sure it comes from the heart!

What do you write on a birthday card?

A birthday card doesn’t need to be complicated but it should contain the following elements:

  1. A greeting: This can be as simple as stating “Happy birthday!” right up at the top.
  2. Best wishes: This section should include your key birthday message as well as reflections on your friendship, thoughts about this person, or hopes for their future.
  3. Closing message: You can end the card with a suggestion to spend time together soon or mention a gift you got them or are sending them in the mail.
