What to Write in a Best Friend Birthday Card

Want to take your own wordsmith’s hand at writing a delightful message for your best friend birthday card? We’ve got some pippin hot tips to help you along and ensure you craft a wonderful paragraph or two for your best friend birthday card.
You can even surprise your BFF by crafting a DIY birthday card instead of buying one from the store! Believe us, homemade goes a long loving way.

  • Get sentimental: If you and your BFF aren’t sappy, that’s totally groovy, but birthdays are a great time to express your gratitude and love for someone, so why not jot down a few notes of why you love your friendship and who your BFF is as a person? We guarantee they’ll love it.
  • Inside Jokes: Sometimes, it can be hard to think back on inside jokes off the top of your head, but sometimes looking back on your pictures and videos brings back old inside joke memories! These make for an awesome little nugget in your best friend birthday card message.
  • Memories: If you have enough room in your card (or, just add a folded-up little note in your best friend birthday card like the Elementary school days), squeezing in a memory of two that you cherish will mean a whole lot to them.
  • BONUS: As a cute and sweet bonus, you can print off a picture(s) that you love of the two of you and write sweet or funny notes on the back of the pictures. Seeing which ones you choose to put in your best friend birthday card will be a special treat!
