What Should I Write in a Birthday Note or Card?

Updated on February 28, 2012

Birthday Messages for Cards

Saying Happy Birthday to someone you care about means so much to people. Here are some different ideas and sayings that you can use inside a birthday card or note. Whether it is a store bought card, or one that you made yourself, or an e-card, these ideas can come in handy.

You can use the ideas as they are, or use them as to come up with even more personalized messages. I often interchange the words "I" or "we" depending on what is needed. I hope you find a birthday sentiment here that will work for you.
