If you have a super mom – and most moms are super – then you can never hope to thank her for everything she’s done for you. A lot of the things she did for you, you don’t even remember. Many of the things you do remember, you didn’t appreciate at the time.

But don’t feel too bad, because super moms super-appreciate the smallest gestures from their children. Taking the time to wish her a Happy Birthday is a good start. Coming up with a unique way to say “Happy Birthday, Mom” is even better.

The following list of birthday wishes for Mom range from sincere to silly, so you can choose one according to your tastes and Mom’s (which, go figure, are often the same). Send them in a text, share them on social media, or scrawl them in a nice birthday card. Just don’t forget Mom’s birthday – it’s the least you can do.

Heartfelt Cute Funny From Daughter From Son


Here are some warm and sincere birthday messages for Mom.

  • I’m wishing you a doubly Happy Birthday. After all, you’re not just my mom, but my best friend.
  • When I was little, I used to look up at you and think I had the prettiest Mom in the whole world. Now you’re older, I’m bigger, and my opinion hasn’t changed one bit. Happy Birthday!
  • Happy Birthday to the woman who gave me life, then taught me how to live it.
  • I still need my Mom, I still appreciate my Mom, and I will always love my Mom. Today is the perfect time to let her know it. Happy Birthday, Mom.
  • Happy Birthday to the lady who put up a strong front, while always having my back.
  • Happy Birthday to a lady who picked up after me as a kid, but more importantly, never failed to pick me up when I was down. I love you, Mom.
  • Hope the best Mom ever has the best birthday ever.
  • I could never express everything you mean to me, or thank you for everything you’ve done for me. So I’m just going to say Happy Birthday and give you a big birthday hug the next time I see you.
  • I hope you get everything you want for your birthday, Mom. Most of all, I hope you take some time to treat yourself. You’ve earned it after years of tending to others.
  • Sending a special birthday wish to someone who did her best to make every one of my birthdays special.
  • I’m glad that you came into this world, and just plain lucky that you’re my Mom. Happy Birthday!
  • The years go by, but some things never change. You never stop being there for me, and I never stop thinking I have the best Mom in the world. Happy Birthday!
  • I can’t decide whether you’re a better Mom or Grandma. Let’s just say you’re awesome at everything you do. Hope you have a birthday that’s every bit as awesome as you.
  • When you’re a kid, you take everything for granted. I just assumed all those birthday parties, cakes, and presents happened by magic. Now I appreciate all the work that went into it, and the lady who pulled it off. I hope some of that birthday magic comes back to you today, Mom.
  • Happy Birthday to a lady who would never hesitate to share her last piece of birthday cake. I love you, Mom.

Funny Birthday Wishes

For your birthday, I wish that every mirror in the world would vanish so you wouldn’t know that you are getting older. Enjoy!

You are gradually getting to the top of the hill. It’s better than being buried under it.

You should be proud of your age. This year you are wiser, smarter and very close to reaping the benefits of senior discounts at restaurants.

Don’t regret the grey hairs on your head. Aging is a privilege granted to a select few. Happy Birthday!


To someone totally awesome, gorgeous, funny, and sort of reminds me of myself! You are a fabulous sister and you know you owe it all to me!

Dearest sister, please stop being younger than me every year! It just isn’t fair! Best wishes to you on your special day. May your beauty and humor never fade!

I can’t believe that someone so annoying and immature grew up to be someone I love dearly and consider one of my best friends! Happy Birthday to my wonderful, beautiful, and intelligent sister!

Congratulations on having survived another year with me as your sister! May this year be your best year yet!


Before you go out today, make sure your pockets are empty. It’s your day to have others treat you! I hope you enjoy your birthday, dear brother.

You might get all the responsibility for being the older brother, but you have no idea how hard it is to be the favorite of the family. Enjoy your day!

As the true and good-hearted brother that I am, I have remembered your birthday and forgotten your age.

You’ve already taught me so much as my older brother. Now I’m learning from you on how (not) to age gracefully. Have a great Bday!


Happy Birthday Funny Friends

For your birthday, I wanted to give you something that was both funny and charming, but then I remembered you already have me in your life.

May my friend on this special day be able to set all the jealous people on fire and use the flame to burn the candles and blow them off with a happy smile, a very happy and amazing day to you.

I made you a birthday cake to celebrate, but I couldn’t light the candles. It turns out the fire department requires a permit for bonfires.

Having friends never has been more awesome! You truly are a great person to have around, even when you eat everything on the table. We still love you anyway! Happy birthday!

I didn’t get you a fancy gift this year, instead I thought it best to go with something sentimental. Remember that time you told me how happy it makes you when I wear red? Well, I’ve bought a whole new outfit and accessories in lush red colors. Just for you!

It’s time for me to start pulling my weight around the house I know. So today for your birthday I’ve cleaned all the rooms and made the house pretty, all for you! So now do your part, get in the kitchen and make us some dinner.

Happy birthday. At your age, you should really try to see everything as larger than life…starting with LARGE print.

Hey, no matter how old have you become today, just make sure that you don’t forget that where you kept the car keys. Good luck!

Can you remember those young, healthy and colorful days of our young age? It’s always feels awesome when you can recall all those memories.


Don’t be sad you’re a year older. Keep your chin up…both of ’em! Well, you know what I mean.

If anyone calls you old, hit them with your cane and throw your teeth at them!

This year is the easiest one for me to pick a birthday gift for you,

I choose makeup for you to apply plenty of it to hide your wrinkles and your age.

At our age, the only way to look younger is to add at least a decade to your age.

So, you are still younger than the age you will be on the next birthday. Have a special celebration.

Just smile while you still have your natural teeth.

Another year has gone, but that doesn’t mean you’ve become wiser.

We need a flamethrower instead of a lighter to light up all of your candles.

Check out our Funny Birthday Quotes from Dr Seuss.

Witty and Comical

Don’t count the candles on your cake or the wrinkles on your face. Just be glad that you’re not down for the count.

The main thing to do to remain young is to lie when it comes to your age, eat slowly and dress like a teenager.

You’ve finally reached the age of wisdom but nobody wants to listen to you.

There are plenty of years that I can remember for those history classes in our schools. But, the bad news is I can’t remember your birth date as it wasn’t in our course. May be I’m late, but have a great one.

You should count your age not your wrinkles. Count your experiences and blessings not your mistakes.

Stop counting your candles and start counting your blessings. You still have hair on your head, not in your ears and nose!

The room is getting hotter, please blow the candles before your room gets on fire.

It’s cold out there, but I feel much warm for your candles. Man, your birthday is hot!

They say that with age comes wisdom. I’m not so sure…I’ve met a lot of really stupid old people. So far, you’re not one of them.

Time may heal all wounds, but it leaves you with an unhealthy glow, saggy skin and crow’s feet.

Let us never know what old age is. Let us know the happiness time brings, not count the years. – Ausonius

Isn’t that one of the most inspiring Birthday Quotes ever? Doesn’t it also bring back fond memories?

Remember that feeling you got as a kid the day before your birthday; counting down the hours until finally, your big day came. Everyone was nice to you, they gave you presents with hand written greetings, left you thoughtful messages; and if you were lucky, you got to decide where to have your birthday party (lazer tag!). The spotlight was on just you for a full 24 hours, and it was awesome.

Then somewhere along the lines, your birthday became less about fun and more about trying not to cry all over your birthday cake. You feel older (and not necessarily wiser), and can’t help looking back at the things you just can’t do anymore like lazer tag. It sounds depressing because, well, it is.

But it doesn’t have to be. You just need some cheering up.

If you’re sitting there struggling to think of something clever, or you’re looking for some birthday wishes to cheer you up, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re sending an e-mail, text, signing a birthday card, or leaving a voicemail, this collection is filled with as many ways to say happy birthday as possible.

So without further ado, here are the 30 birthday wishes to help put the ‘awesome’ back into that special day for you or someone you love.

Birthday wishes can be clever. But you may not want to be too “clever” with your birthday greetings. Some people prefer slightly clever birthday messages over a real “brain-teaser” of a birthday message. Others can’t wait to sink their teeth into a pun-laced, hard-to-solve birthday verse.

Which level of "cleverness" should you choose for the birthday boy or girl? The first thing to consider is... Read more ►

Why do people like clever birthday messages in the first place? Most people like this type of birthday greeting because it appeals to the same part of the brain that likes riddles. Because clever birthday wishes are cryptic in nature, they are a lot like riddles. So, the real question to ask is "why do people like riddles?" According to "And so it goes," an article I read recently, here's why:

  • "We like to challenge ourselves (part of us thinks we can't solve the riddle and another part thinks we can).
  • We like to solve riddles because it proves to ourselves that we can solve problems.
  • We want to be able to pat ourselves on the back for a job well done.
  • We like to just know the answer to everything.
  • A riddle is more fun when we remember it and can gloat about having solved it (when we tell it to someone else).
  • The fun in riddles is that it is better than thinking about nothing."

You can read the entire article right here. The same, I guess, goes for clever birthday verses, which contain riddle-like messages.

So how far should you go with your clever birthday messages?

If you think the birthday boy or girl would agree four or more the reasons why riddles are appealing (right above), you should choose a very clever birthday wish. This type of greeting is clever, yet not too cryptic. It's witty, but not too droll or campy. You can even choose a clever birthday wish that's inspiring. Whatever you do, just make sure it does not go over the head of the birthday boy or girl.

If the recipient of your birthday message would agree with two or three of the reasons above, go for a semi-clever birthday verse. In other words, don’t be too clever with your choice. This group won't like the "smarty pants" approach, so express how you feel about the birthday boy or girl with just the right turn of phrase.

If you believe that the birthday boy or girl would agree with only one of the above-mentioned reasons, don't go the clever route at all. A better option: go to my Birthday Wishes section to choose from many other styles — or by age or person.
