birthday-card-messagesPicking out a birthday card for someone is the easy part – the messages are already in there, so you just have to find one that you like. It’s when it comes time to write your own message inside that people often struggle!

Although birthdays come once each year, giving us many opportunities to write something special to our friends, family members and loved ones, we know that most people want their message for this year to be better than the last – that’s where it gets tricky. Lucky for you, today we’re here to help. Below are some of our favorite birthday messages that you can reference as you write your next card – enjoy!
