42 Happy Birthday Wishes for a Nephew

Hello! My name is Ahmad, and I love creating, compiling, and sharing quotes, wishes, and beautiful sentiments.


It was six years ago today that my family was blessed with a handsome and precious surprise. There was something missing and God knew exactly who to send our way. My teddy bear, my beautiful new nephew. His place in our lives is what brings us joy, happiness, and big smiles every single day. When they put him in my arms for the very first time, I looked at him and all I could do was cry with joy. He was perfect, beautiful, and, above all, his big brown eyes shined with happiness! He is not just the joy in our lives, he is also loved amongst everyone he knows, a good brother, a caring grandson, a cool nephew, smart, cute, friendly, kind, witty, and incredibly sweet!

If you know what it's like to have so much love for your nephew, make sure that your nephew knows too. Consider sending him a card or email to demonstrate just how much you love him. Birthday wishes are a great way to say, "I love you" and also a great way of keeping family bonds strong.

What if My Nephew Has Passed Away?

If such a horrible tragedy has befallen your family, it's important to remember your lost loved one in a positive light. Here's a great example of what to write if your nephew has passed away.

  • Happy birthday to my beautiful nephew. You would have been 23 today. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. It's strange knowing that it’s your birthday. I'm going to be with the family and you won't be there. But we know you would've wanted us to turn up, so we shall celebrate all the good times we had with you. We will all take care of each other today and every day. I love you and miss you so much.
