This is an excerpt from the full collection of happy birthday wishes

Few days of the year are as important to us as a friend or loved one’s birthday. Whether we want to admit it or not, we expect a certain level of special treatment on our birthday and we also expect happy birthday wishes from those who are important in our lives. When your friends, family, spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend or other important people in your life have a birthday, we usually send them a birthday message greeting them and wishing them well. However, we often don’t give the birthday wishes careful thought. And on a day that is so important and personal to so many people, why not take the time to craft a clever, heartfelt, romantic or funny birthday wish that can help make their special day a bit more special?

However, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to come up with the right birthday message or to know what to write in a birthday card. But don’t worry, because we’ve got you covered. We have chosen for you the 35 best birthday wishes, quotes and messages perfect for any occasion. And not only that, but these birthday quotes are all on funny, touching or romantic images, because a picture can help say so much more.

This collection contains birthday greetings for anyone you know who is having a birthday including birthday wishes for a friend, co-worker, husband, wife, son, daughter, sibling, boyfriend, girlfriend and more. We even have some belated birthday wishes, because we all have moments of forgetfulness!
