Birthday messages to make them beam

Lost for words? Get inspired with these smashing birthday messages.


We love a great birthday message. Whether it’s scribbled in a card or iced on a cake (and perhaps a little wobbly), or printed in one of our personalised birthday books, it’s the perfect way to make someone feel marvellous on their special day. Nothing makes someone beam like words written with love – just for them! That’s why we love printing your personal dedications on the first page of our books, absolutely free. 

But what IS the best message for a birthday? Whether you’re writing a birthday dedication for your son, daughter, husband, sister or best friend, we’re here to help you find the right words to make them twinkle with delight. Scroll for some rather splendid birthday message inspiration...
