Birthday Wishes for Nephew: Lovable Boys without the Responsibility

Anyone who has been around boys knows they can be a handful at times. Sons, brothers — even husbands can try our patience from time to time. Nephews, on the other hand, are always the apple of our eye. Cute and precocious, they’ve got us wrapped around their little finger as soon as we lay eyes upon them. We can blatantly spoil them with impunity, then deliver them back to their parents. This relationship continues throughout their life, regardless of their age. While Mom and Dad must enforce rules, Aunts and Uncles are like the wise adults without the rule crackdown. So, for our nephew’s birthday, it’s time to impart wisdom, exchange a laugh, or just be their friend. Below are some suggestions to use, whether in a handwritten note (preferable) or through their favorite social media outlet of choice.

  • It’s a bird, it’s a plane — no, it’s the Super Awesome Nephew! Able to leap layers of birthday cake in a single bound!
  • You’re young Nephew, but remember, the more candles you have on your cake, the less wind you have to blow them out.
  • As your Aunt, I wanted to give you some sage advice on your birthday: Always wear clean underwear. (boring, yes, but sage)
  • Ahh, birthday memories, Nephew. Remember when you cut all my flowers, or when you painted my dog? Me neither. (Love you!)
  • I am the luckiest Uncle in the world! I get to spend my Nephew’s birthday with him and remind him how much I love him. What a great day!
