Hi there! I am Tim, from Wall Street English.

 

We are in a time and age, where social media websites play an important role in keeping us all up-to-date with everyone’s matters, we celebrate each other’s Birthdays more than ever before by simply dropping each other a line or two. Here are a few creative ways to say happy birthday to spice up your birthday greeting message.

 

1. If you wish to say Happy Birthday with a quote on birthdays.

It could be inspirational like, “You’re not just a year older, but a year better”.

 

2. Having a trip around the sun is a popular choice as well.

“Enjoy your 30th trip around the sun!” where the number stands for number of birthday plus one, this ensures to make the recipient feel that much older. Especially, when going from twenty-nine to thirty.

 

3. While playing around with numbers…

You can wish someone turning thirty by saying, “You’re not thirty; you’re just eighteen with twelve years of experience”.

4. Tell them how much they mean to you

If you are thinking of a special way to wish a loved one on his/her birthday, you can definitely put a smile on their faces by telling them how much they mean to you, like “Happy birthday! I’m really glad you’re in my life. You make me smile every day!”

 

5. To make your birthday message truly special and unique for someone close to you…

You could include something more personal. For instance, a mom with a young child. You could say “Happy birthday Michelle! I hope your day is filled with a thousand hugs and kisses from your little one.” You can insert anything that you know that the person likes, or means a lot to them.

 

That’s it for now. I hope you found these ways useful, and of course, have a great day.
