The words you use in a birthday message should convey your innermost feelings. You do not have to sound extravagant with birthday wishes for your best friend. The person you love and adore deserves an honest wish that’s straight from your heart. When you hit a wall with words while writing a birthday greeting, it’s often because you are too excited or you are unable to connect with the momentary feeling. In such times it is best to slow down the speed of thought and ease your mind. When your mind is relaxed the words that stem forth to life are thoughtful and endearing.

Words to Use in Birthday Wishes

Whether you wish your special friend in person, over the phone, or on a social networking site, you need words to communicate. The words that make up a birthday message for your best friend are important. While there is no format or tone to birthday wishes, ensure you do not get caught up in a formal structure of words. An informal flow of words that are thoughtful and meaningful are best suited for best friend birthdays. Use words your friend can relate to and connect with. Use words that are descriptive and reflective. Such words make a wish lovable, cute and endearing. If humor is your thing, by all means use it; however, do not go overboard with it. Words that bring to life moments of nostalgia make a birthday wish special.


What Should a Birthday Wish Convey?

Words speak a language of the heart. You need warmth in words to communicate and express feelings. Thoughtful words used in a birthday message, birthday wish, or birthday greeting make the person feel special. Through a birthday wish you need to convey what the person means to you. The bond you share with your best friend will help you come up with words that are cute and meaningful. Best friend birthday wishes can be short or long depending on what you want to convey. Ideally, short and sweet messages are very impactful, however if you know your best friend has a strong connection with words, a lengthy greeting is the way to go.


How to Express Yourself in a Birthday Message

You need to be the person you are and not somebody else when you have to express yourself in a birthday message. Your feelings should be a true reflection of how you feel about your best friend. Birthday wish wordings for your best friend do not have to be impeccable but rather impactful. Simple key words create a flow and add meaningful insight to feelings. Knowing a lovable quality your friend possesses helps express words of gratitude and love. The relationship you share with your friend should dictate the choice of words in a birthday greeting. While you express yourself you need to realize the spotlight needs to be on your friend and not you.

The lines below share a list of thoughtful birthday wishes, birthday messages and birthday greetings you can use to come up with your personalized birthday wish for your best friend.
