Creative Ways to Send Birthday Wishes

As people get older, it can be harder to make their birthdays feel special. Gifts, cakes, and cards aren’t as exciting to an adult as they are to a kid. However, there are a few ways you can make a birthday feel fantastic. Try out on of these ways to send birthday wishes.

1. Try sending them birthday wishes in as many languages as possible!

The internet makes this easy. With a few clicks, you can find out how to say happy birthday in any language imaginable. In Japanese, happy birthday is “tanjoubi omedetou”. In French, it’s “joyeux anniversaire”.

If you want to make the person feel really special, you could try wishing them happy birthday in a different language for every year they’ve been alive. If they’re turning 30, find 30 ways to wish them a happy birthday. It’ll help them appreciate all the years they’ve been alive.

2. You could also try writing them an original birthday poem!

Having a poem written about you feels fantastic. Even if you’re not much of a poet, you can probably write a simple haiku. Make sure the person you’re giving it to knows it’s original!

Depending on the personality of the person having a birthday, you may want to make the poem humorous in nature. That way, it’ll still be touching, but it won’t be too over the top. Plus, it’s always nice to have a good laugh on your birthday!

3. Try giving the person the kind of gift they would have wanted to receive if they were a kid.

Did they always want an Easy-Bake oven? Fulfill their childhood dreams? Were they into superheroes as a child? Buy them some action figures.

Sometimes, all people think about on their birthday is how old they are. When you give them a gift like this, they’ll be able to feel like a kid at heart. You’ll be making old birthday dreams come true!

4. If the person likes puzzles, you could wish them happy birthday into a game.

Say happy birthday with an anagram, like “Bad Harpy Pithy” or “A Bath Dry Hippy”. Make them a birthday wordsearch, or maybe a crossword puzzle. They’ll have a lot of fun playing your birthday game.

You could make things more elaborate by incorporating personal information. For example, if you make a crossword puzzle, you could include locations of past birthday parties. Doing this will really make the game feel like a celebration of their life.

5. Spell out happy birthday with gifts!

Find something small they like, like a candy or gum, and use the pieces to write a birthday greeting. It’s a nice present, and it can be really exciting to see, especially if the finished greeting is really big.

If there’s not a small food item that you like, you could help them start a collection. Do they like trips to the beach? Wish them happy birthday with seashells! Do they have a favorite type of animal? You could spell out happy birthday with figurines. This makes for great photos, and is very cool to see in person.

6. There are so many ways to say happy birthday.

From “many happy returns” to “I’m glad you were born” to “long may you run”, the greetings can really pile them up. Say them all and display them in a clever way by creating a birthday wishes basket.

Start out buy purchasing a nice birthday basket. Then, print up every birthday greeting you can think of on a piece of paper. You may want to take a tip from the first idea on this list and use different languages. Once you have a healthy pile of birthday wishes, you can make them look pretty.

Cut out the birthday wishes, then glue them onto small strips of construction paper in various colors. Pile them all into the basket, and finish the basket off with some ribbon and a happy birthday sign. It’s a greeting they’ll never forget!

If you send someone birthday wishes using one of these methods, they’re sure to feel special. Birthdays don’t have to be boring when you’re an adult. With a little extra effort, they can be as fun as ever.
