Birthdays are an opportunity to celebrate the milestones in our lives and all the friends, family and loved ones who have made them possible. Wishing your loved one a happy birthday is an important part of this tradition, but you can make their day even more special by making your message personal and unique. Here are five great ways to wish your loved one a happy birthday that will also make them smile!
Greet them in a unique way
There are plenty of ways you can make your loved one feel extra special on their birthday. Consider sending them a personalized message from the comfort of your phone. Add in a funny gif or photo to really get them laughing and make their day!
WooInfo has also created a list of other fun things you can do with your loved ones for their birthday, like creating an Instagram story for them or giving them one of the best presents they’ll ever receive: a trip!
Do something funny
Wooinfo has compiled a list of funny messages you can send to your loved ones on their birthday. You can use these messages for texts, emails, and social media posts.
- Hey dude!
- What up?
- I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday!
- Happy birthday! I hope it was awesome.
- Here are some words that rhyme with happy: rash, gush, bush.
Bring them breakfast in bed
Wake up your loved one with a tray of their favorite breakfast foods and/or coffee. Wish them a happy birthday and enjoy the morning together. Take them out for dinner at their favorite restaurant. Get tickets to their favorite concert or sporting event so they can enjoy it with friends. Include them in your plans for the day, but also be sure that you have time alone together as well.
Call, text, or email everyone else in their life to let them know you’re thinking about them
Wooinfo is a new app that does the work for you. You can send birthday cards to anyone in your contacts and Woo will automatically text or email everyone else in their life, letting them know you’re thinking of them. It’s the perfect way to make your loved one feel special on their big day. Featuring thoughtful messages from friends and family, it also includes pictures from Facebook. All you need to do is type happy birthday in the message box, select which contact you want to send it to (or just enter an email address), pick a card design from five options—ranging from ethereal watercolors to cheeky comic book art—and then hit send.
Plus, with no signup required or any complicated steps involved, all it takes is five minutes out of your day!
Bring them flowers or take them on an adventure
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money or time on your loved one, but still want them to have a great birthday, bring them flowers. They will appreciate the gesture and it won’t put too much of a dent in your wallet. The same can be said for an adventure. A day out on the town may not be what they would typically choose for themselves, so this is an easy way to get them out of their comfort zone with something different and exciting!
Hold an online birthday party for them (have other friends comment, wish, etc.)
There are tons of ways to celebrate your loved ones birthday online. You could ask people from all over the world to wish them a happy birthday by commenting on their Facebook posts, writing a heartfelt message on their wall, or signing up for Skype so you can chat and sing them Happy Birthday.
