How to Wish Your Lover a Happy Birthday

When wishing a lover a happy birthday, it is important to remember to do it at least a day before or after their actual birthday.

You may want to discuss with your partner ahead of time what they would like for their birthday as this can make things easier for you when the big day comes around. Some people prefer one gift, others don’t mind receiving multiple gifts; some people simply enjoy celebrating with a meal or a night out together.

For your birthday messages and notes to be effective, it is important that you make sure they are delivered at the right time.

You may be tempted to post your wishes on social media. This is great, but you should also consider sending a written birthday message as well.


Written messages are always nice because they can be saved and cherished for a long time whereas social media posts will disappear after a few days or weeks at most.

So if you think the message would make a nice keepsake for your partner, go ahead and send one.

The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.

How to Write the Perfect Happy Birthday Message for Your Lover

To make sure that you get it right when sending birthday messages or notes to your lover, we thought we’d share some tips on how to write them.

Keep these in mind as you are writing your message so it ends up being the one they keep and treasure forever.

#1 Put Some Time into It

It is better to spend more time writing a thoughtful message than rushing through it, especially if you are not good at coming up with your own words.

If you have trouble thinking of something to write, consider looking at messages that others have written on similar sites to see what they have done. When you choose words that are carefully selected, it can make a big difference to your partner on their day.

If you want to do something different, but still meaningful and thoughtful, consider putting together a small photo album of the two of you together over time. Then write a short message explaining how much each memory means to you both.

#2 Use What You Know About Them

A great way to come up with the right words is to think of what you know about your partner and their personality, and how they would like to be addressed on their birthday.

This will help ensure that your message is spot-on and it is something they will cherish. You should also consider your own relationship with your partner and what they like or dislike.

#3 Make the Message Personal

When thinking of the right words, it is important to keep in mind that you want to make the message personal so that it makes a real impact.

It’s not just about saying ‘happy birthday’, but taking the time to explain how much they mean to you and why you think they are special.

You can be sweet, romantic, naughty- just make sure it pertains to only them. 

#4 Keep it Short and Sweet

You don’t want the message to be too long because if your partner has received a lot of well wishes, then it can leave them with a lot to read through.

Keep it short and sweet so that the message stands out and makes the point that you are trying to get across in a way that is memorable.

#5 Be Specific About How You Feel About Them

You want your message to show how special they are to you and why you think this day is important for them.

One good tip is to keep it simple by being specific about why they are so important to you, rather than just saying ‘happy birthday’. Use memories of special times or events to let them know you are paying attention and that you care.
