Which stage are you at?


If you’d like to send birthday wishes to someone special, but don’t want to settle for a birthday card’s generic verse, we’ve put together some of our favourite birthday quotes for you to use instead.

Silly and funny, or sweet and sentimental, whatever type of birthday message you want to send, we can help. It’s a great way to make your birthday card more personal and memorable. And if you’re yet to actually buy the birthday card, don’t worry – we have lots of those which you can personalise too!

Funny birthday quotes

A funny birthday card needs a funny birthday quote inside. So here are five of our favourites:
I just wanted to let you know that from now on, all compliments will be followed by “for your age”. Happy Birthday!
  • Congratulations on entering the time of your life where people will no longer judge you for wanting plastic surgery!
  • Don’t worry about getting old, it just means you can get the best seat on the bus!
  • They say that with age comes wisdom. Lucky for you, you’re missing one of the main signs of aging!

Sentimental birthday messages

Sometimes, writing down how you feel about someone is easier than saying it out loud. So why not take the opportunity to write some lovely words in a cute birthday card?


  • Every year I will wish you the same: a lifetime of happiness! Happy Birthday!
  • I just realised, we’re fast becoming OLD friends and I wouldn’t want it any other way!
  • In case I don’t tell you enough, you’re amazing and I love you. Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday to one of my favourite people in the world. Thanks for just being you.

16th birthday card quotes

Ah sweet sixteen. This is their first big age birthday and your chance to impart some wise (ish) words in their special 16th birthday card.


Explaining life to a 16 year old is as practical as bathing a fish, so I’ll spare you the advice! Just have fun on your birthday!
  • You know what’s great about turning 16? More independence and still no responsibility – enjoy!
  • Don’t grow up too fast! Being a big kid will always be more fun than being an adult.
  • Be safe, have fun, take pictures and enjoy everything there is to experience at 16.

18th birthday card quotes

It’s the big birthday they’ve been waiting for. They can finally do everything they were once too young to do, so encourage them to make the most of it with a little message in their 18th birthday card.


  • Have a great time making everyone else feel jealous of your age!
  • Some things in life are worth waiting for, like all the things you can do now that you're 18.
  • Happy 18th Birthday! This will be one of the best years of your life so make the most of it!
Congratulations on owning legal proof of being an adult – just don’t ever start acting like one!
