Tips for birthday wishes for him
Finding suitable birthday wishes can be a real challenge. After all, you want to please the person celebrating and not arrive too corny or boring.
For this reason, here are a few tips for you on how to make your birthday greetings more fitting and better.
Include something personal
Most people, male or female, are always very happy to receive personal messages. For example, you can unpack old anecdotes that you’ve shared together or just reminisce a bit about your time together.
Of course, you can also refer to the interests, hobbies or personality of the jubilarian. In this way, you’ll definitely prove that you know him well and that you didn’t copy the content for your birthday card from somewhere.
In addition, you show him that you have made an effort and that his birthday and he are important to you. The best way is to combine your personal text with our birthday wishes.
Respect your relationship
Basically, of course, most sayings are applicable to most men. Some you can also just adjust a little. However, it still makes a certain difference whether you want to congratulate your grandfather as a granddaughter, your best buddy in his mid-forties or your fiancé as a young woman;
As a buddy it can be a funny saying or a little (or bigger) teasing. The grandfather is probably most pleased about a few dear words or a poem and the fiancé about a loving message or allusions to certain experiences in the past or future.
Especially if you are colleagues and you want to congratulate more out of politeness, you should perhaps rather refrain from coarser, teasing sayings. Of course, this also depends on the relationship you have with each other.
Tailor your birthday wishes to his character
Of course, one could clichédly claim that no man likes long and profound birthday wishes. Men want it to be short, crude and funny and touching texts are boring. After all, no man likes to show feelings.
Nevertheless, there are certainly a lot of men who are just as happy about emotional and loving texts as many women are. You will probably know the celebrant himself best and what he is most pleased about.
So when choosing your birthday greetings, it is best to make sure that they also fit the character of the birthday boy or girl if you want to congratulate them.
Use photos or pictures
Maybe you can find some old photos of you as children or young adults somewhere. Of course, it’s especially nice if the person celebrating doesn’t even know the pictures themselves or hasn’t seen them in a long time. Reveling in beautiful memories puts a smile on most people’s faces.
Many also give their friends funny pictures for their birthday. Some of them are often quite silly, but just that can be very funny, of course, if a photo is provided with a funny saying, for example.
Send these pictures either via social media or also give them away as a (post) card. Maybe the birthday boy or girl will even hang them up.
