Heartwarming Birthday Messages

  1. Happy Birthday. Your love is one of my favorite presents in life.
  2. We've now been together for longer than we were without each other. Here's to getting to spend another year together. (You will have to do some math to do this one: for example: If you've been together for 25 years and you are 45, you've been together 25 and apart 20, so this saying would work. If you've been together for 15 years and your age is 30, you've been together for the same amount of time as you've been apart.)
  3. Happy birthday to the only man I know who still looks good in his original skinny jeans from the 70s. You rock!
  4. Today I get to celebrate the one person that knows me better than anyone else and still chooses to love me. Thank you for your love and patience with me. I am so lucky to have you in my life.
  5. Your life is an inspiration to me. Each year you impress me with the way you treat me and our family, work toward helping others, fulfill your job and home responsibilities, and pursue your passions. Happy birthday to a truly exceptional person.
  6. My life hasn't been the same since I met you. Places we go are more fun. The time we spend with friends seems more full of energy. Conversations seem more meaningful. My days are richer. You make the difference. Happy Birthday to wonderful you.
  7. Can't wait to keep holding hands with you for another hundred years.
  8. We used to be "the cute couple," and now we are "that cute old couple." It doesn't bother me a bit to be growing older. I am so happy that I get to grow old with you.
  9. You are the love of my life. Love didn't make sense until I met you and noticed the way you treat me and others around you. Thank you for the patience and kindness you show me. And thank you for being a model to me of how to love others.
  10. To say that you are mine is the proudest statement I can make. I love having you, and knowing I get to keep you as mine. Forever.

Stand by You

If we were together forever that'd be all right with me.

If we stayed close for all of time, well I think that'd be just fine.

If we grew old side by side, heck that sounds sublime.

Year after year, I'll still draw you near.

You're the man I want to stand by.

Sweet Messages

  1. Even though we've been together for a long time, you still find ways to make me feel special. Happy birthday!
  2. There are a lot of reasons that I love your birthday, but the cherry on top of all the cake and presents and party is that I get to spend another day with my wonderful man.
  3. I love you more every day and I am so lucky to have you in my life. Happy birthday.
  4. If I weren't with you already, I know that I'd be looking for someone like you. You are so wonderful and special to me, and I find something new to love about you every day.
  5. You are my partner, my love, and my inspiration. I am still so over the moon for you. Happy birthday, darling.
  6. Seeing you is always one of the highlights of my day. I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

And still your hands they hold me, just like the very first time. Every day we grow into a bigger love and every day I thank God for sending you from above. You're the man who makes my life every day more sweet and you're the man who's own half makes my heart complete.

Birthday Poems and Songs

You may also be interested in writing a special poem or song for your special someone. Try rewording old favorites like, "Roses are Red, Violets are Blue . . . (you fill in the blanks!)" Acrostic poems are also a simple but meaningful way to highlight the favorite traits of your man.

There are also some other poems below and throughout this article that you can either use or get inspiration from to tell your man just how much you love him.


1. Roses are red, violets are blue,

There's no better kiss, than one from my dude.

2. Roses are red, violets are blue,

You hate flowers, but I love you.

3. Roses are red, violets are blue,

Who better for me to grow old with than you!

Acrostic Poems

Acrostic poems use the first letter of the person's name to begin each line or phrase of the poem.

Example: For Brian

  • Brilliant
  • Ready to help with the kids
  • Insists on making us a priority
  • Able to fix any household problem
  • Notices the best in people

A Little Gift for You

Today is your birthday, my love, my dear, and I got you a little gift.
It's not quite new, but I thought I'd show you, just how to use it.

These are my hands, they're yours to hold at any hour of the day.
These are my arms, they go around you, to try to make you stay.

These are my shoulders, you can rest on them when you're feeling low.
This is my back, it's strong you know, to hold some of your sorrow.

These are my feet, they'll walk to you, no matter how far you are.
These are my legs, they'll help with the journey, even if I use a car.

These are my eyes, they see only you, and they miss you when you're away.
These are my lips, they're yours to kiss, and for me to use to say.

My heart is yours, that you know, and your name is my heartbeat.
So that's your present, it's all of me, because it's you that makes me complete.

The Whitest Dove

Walk with me, talk with me, you my dearest love.
We'll walk on through the garden and find the whitest dove.

Do you remember how you'd run your fingers through my hair?
Or how we'd sit for hours and hours and in your eyes I'd stare?

The world was just the two of us; it was made for you and me.
The world was just the two of us, walking near the sea.

Older now we've grown somehow, and our world has grown up too.
We've laughed and cried, parts of us have died, and others have come up new.

Our love has aged but it will never grow old, walking near the sea.
Because within it, now it holds, something better than just you or just me.

Birthday Songs

Have a special song that reminds you of him?

Perhaps you could rewrite the words to the chorus and sing it to him. This personal touch is guaranteed to be special.

If met at an event that was tied to a certain musical group, concert, or themed party, you could also try working these into your birthday gift or messages.

Cakes and Other Fun Ways to Celebrate (Besides the Card)

Now that you have some good card ideas, here are a few other random and fun ideas for celebrating!

The Cake

Baking his favorite cake is a given. But does he like several desserts? Surprise him by making mini versions of several yummy treats for a dessert buffet. Most craft and hobby stores sell small sizes of all sorts of baking necessities. Of course online searches will offer even more options. Little cookies, little cupcakes, a small pie, AND a small cake.... mmmm.... Yes, please.

Another cake option: order a cake with an action hero on it. Men of all ages can relate to action heroes. Want to be serious and sentimental? Choose an action hero that reminds you of your man and then write a sentimental message on the cake (i.e. Superman cake with words, "You will always be my superman.") Want to be funny? Pick a lesser known superhero (some have quite silly super powers) or ask your man's mother which superhero was his favorite growing up and order that one.

Some Fun Things to Write on the Cake

  1. You're sweeter than cake.
  2. Don't cut me! Save me!
  3. I love you more than this cake, even though the cake is richer.
  4. You are the frosting of my life. And the cake.
  5. Cake is the best part of a party, and you are the best part of my life.
  6. I love you like a fat kid loves cake. I am the fat kid.
  7. Life without you is like a party without cake.
  8. You take the cake!
  9. I love you!
  10. U R the GR8TEST.

The Decorations

Streamers and banners are good. I guess. But why not do something a little different. Here are some ideas on how to make your birthday celebration stand out:

  • Silly String. Go to the dollar store and buy cans of silly string. Give each member of the birthday bash a can of silly string and instruct everyone to spray the birthday person at the end of the singing of the "Happy Birthday" song. Guaranteed laughs to follow.
  • Silly String Twist. A little twist on the "squirt the birthday person with silly string" is having a backyard silly string fight with all family members involved. This is fun and competitive.
  • Balloons. Consider buying balloons that number the same number of years the birthday person is celebrating. Your birthday hubby or boyfriend is 67? Great. 67 balloons will look stellar in the entryway (or shower or bathroom) of your home when he comes home from work.
  • Trophies: Go to Goodwill or a garage sale (church rummage sales are great for this) and buy any random old trophies you can find. Bowling trophies, trophies where someone is holding a torch, it doesn't matter — any ol' trophy will do. Next, think of something new to have engraved on the trophy's base. Most towns have a sports shop or an awards shop that will do the engraving for a small price. Your man is bound to love his new, custom trophy.

On Earth in Love

Rain or shine, I'm so glad you're mine.

When the weather's blue, at least I've got you.

There may be clouds up above but down here I'm in love

With a man that is simply quite grand.
