Cool Birthday Messages

Anyone can give the standard “Happy Birthday” greeting. It is appropriate and warmly received, but when the birthday honoree is someone you care about, it’s time to “super-size” it! Show them you are plugged in to the trends by dispensing with the ho-hum language and generic phrasing. Older folks will chuckle when they read your cheeky quips while younger folks – teens and GenX-ers – will appreciate that you chose to wish them a happy birthday using their own language. A birthday wish using cool language and contemporary phrasing will speak to them on their level. Break through the old confines and get your “cool” on, whether using social media or putting pen to paper. Make your written birthday wish sound exactly like a face to face greeting. A heartfelt message that tailors the words to the recipient a big hit and sets you apart in their mind and heart.
