Cool birthday quotes for your best friend

Cool quotes for birthdays

If you don’t feel like ordinary birthday sayings, we have some cool sayings for you. They show that birthdays basically don’t mean much to you and sometimes sound slightly ironic.

  2. Happiest of birthdays to the “she” to my “Nanigans”!

  4. You being 29, again, means that I’ll never lose track of which birthday you’re on, but I may have to explain it to the nursing home, someday. Cheers!
  5. Be careful. Too many birthdays will kill you. Happy birthday!
  6. Happy birthday — I’m so glad you’ll always be older than me!
  7. Just Happy Birthday. That will have to do.
  8. Great news! You’re still alive! Happy birthday!
  9. You’re not too old for this stuff. You’re just very tired the next day – and the day after that.

Funny gift ideas

Funny gifts: Six great ideas

Below we have ideas for fun gifts that you can easily make yourself at home. These include, for example, a keepsake box for sharing funny moments, funny birthday pictures or even a birthday video.

A DIY memory box

With a homemade box for a birthday, you can simultaneously touch the birthday girl or boy and make them smile. It’s a very personal gift with your funniest memories.

First, buy or make a small box or design a canning jar for this. Then write down shared memories that still make you smile today. Cut out the memories and fold them into small pieces of paper. The box should be well filled by the end.

Create funny birthday pictures

Combine your birthday message with a custom edited picture to give the birthday boy or girl a special treat. To do this, simply choose a funny picture and add some emojis or icons that match the birthday.

Especially funny is a childhood photo or a grimace picture where the birthday boy or girl is really having fun. You can also create a collage or take a photo of you together.

If you don’t have an editing program on your phone or PC, you can download a free app or edit the picture on Instagram. There you also have the option to create funny short videos with moving GIFs.

A fun slideshow video is also a great idea to honor the birthday boy or girl. However, be careful here which pictures you choose. They shouldn’t be too embarrassing and should be fun rather than shame inducing.

Make a video yourself

Make a funny birthday video yourself

Another great idea is to make funny birthday wishes by video yourself. To do this, you can film a short video with your cell phone or a camera and send it to the birthday boy or girl.

For example, you could do short interviews with friends of the birthday boy or girl. Music videos where everyone gets a short sequence to dance to is also very special.

To do this, contact family or a few friends, give everyone 10 or 15 seconds of a song, and finally put the finished videos together in an editing program. Again, you can download a corresponding program in your Play Store (Android) Microsoft Store (Windows) or your App Store (Mac and iOS).

A gift within a gift

Give your friend something small that you then wrap in lots of boxes. Examples include a keychain, a photo in a frame, personal care products, or jewelry.

The more gift boxes the birthday boy or girl opens, the more the hope fades that there will actually be a gift in the box at the end. So the surprise at the end is even nicer.

Funny photo gifts

Funny photo gifts

To tease the birthday boy or girl, but at the same time make him or her laugh, photo gifts are perfect. For example, have socks printed with your face, which the birthday boy or girl then has to wear. Even wrapping paper can be printed with faces.

Other examples are an anti-stress ball, a mouse pad, a T-shirt, a mug, a doormat or a pillow. Instead of your face, you can also have the birthday boy’s face or a child’s drawing of him printed on various things. It is best to talk to his parents and ask for a funny drawing.

Engravings with funny sayings are also a great gift idea. Do you have an insider or always make fun of a certain saying? Have it engraved on a keychain, glass or piece of jewelry and you’ll have a personalized gift that’s guaranteed to get a laugh.

Prepare a funny quiz

For the birthday party, you can prepare a funny quiz as a gift. This proves that you know the birthday boy or girl well and you have made an effort to prepare something personal.

For such a quiz you only need a few slips of paper with questions that can be drawn from a lottery pot or written on index cards. You yourself will be the moderator. You also need a bottle of schnapps. For every wrong answer you have to drink a shot.

It’s most fun when the questions relate to common memories or useless knowledge. Plan for some easier questions and also a few that the birthday boy or girl definitely can’t know. That way, it’s the most fun for everyone.
