Happy 30th birthday – an important milestone

Happy 30th birthday

Every decade is a new milestone in life, bringing with it new experiences and stages of life. For example, many start planning a family at 30 – or even before. Some academics may also just have their first real job around age thirty.

It’s important that you don’t include in your congratulations any life goals that the birthday girl or boy can’t identify with.

Even if the birthday itself is a beautiful occasion, not everyone can handle the new round number well. Sensitivity is required, which should also be reflected in the congratulations.

So depending on how well you know the birthday boy or girl, you should also adjust your congratulations and not go too far out on a limb, for example, with acquaintances with the funny and cheeky sayings.

Wishing a happy 30th birthday to a friend


Dear Mary,

You are now in the prime of your life, beautiful, healthy and full of energy. At the same time, you have already been able to gather some life experience, so that only a little can shock you and you can do everything right from now on, so an optimal mixture!

I wish you all the happiness in the world for your 30th birthday and that you have a fantastic day.


Dear Marc,

When school and training are completed, a steady job is found and the income is reasonably fixed, when the first steps towards the desire for a family are planned or already taken, then stability slowly comes into life. But by no means boredom!

Now that life is getting a little quieter, it’s up to you to provide spontaneity, new adventures and exciting experiences! Enjoy this time, because it is the platform from which you can reach for the stars. Happy 30th birthday and an exciting new decade of life I wish you from the bottom of my heart!

Birthday wishes for your brother

Dear brother,

A birthday is a good opportunity to look back on the past year and set new goals. Your 30th birthday is a very special one: not only have you already accomplished a lot in life, but you are now on the verge of living a real adult life and planning your future.

I wish you all the best and always have your back in all your decisions.

Congratulations to the daughter/son

Dear Sarah,/Dear Tom,

Even though you are now already 30, you will always be our child, whom we want to protect and love. And don’t worry: today in your thirties you are just as young as yesterday in your twenties! To know that, you only need to look in the mirror.

But still, one thing has changed overnight: your consciousness. All of a sudden it is there and will not leave your side. From now on, you will enjoy more consciously, rejoice more consciously and perceive every moment of your life more consciously! This is the most wonderful gift you can wish for.
