What to Write in a 60th Birthday Card for Your Wife?

  • Happy birthday to the love of my life on her special day. May you receive all the love and brightness today that you give to others in your life every day.

  • I celebrate today with you because it is not only the day you were born, but the day my love came to life. Happy birthday.

  • To my beautiful wife ‒ I can’t wait to celebrate you and all the memories we have shared over the years. I am so blessed to have you in my life and celebrate this day with you.

  • Through the times we shared and the years that passed, one thing always remained the same ‒ my love for you. Happy birthday, darling.

  • Today I celebrate the woman who brings light to my darkness and laughter to my sorrow; the woman who gave me a life I never thought I would be lucky enough to live. Happy birthday my love, my life, my wife.

  • You mean the world to me, my sweet wife. Today I celebrate the woman who brought me a lifetime of happiness and whom I will continue to love and cherish every day, but most of all today, on your 60th birthday. Here’s to many more wonderful years of celebrating you.

  • I have sunshine wherever I go because you are with me, lighting up the world around you. I am so blessed to celebrate this milestone birthday with you, my love.

What to Write in a 60th Birthday Card for Your Husband?

  • With every birthday, we get a little slower, speak a little louder, and hear a little less. I love growing old with you and look forward to us yelling ‘I love you!’ at one another on the front porch, being the crazy old couple who startle passersby. Happy birthday, my love.

  • I was blinded by love the day I met you, and I have never seen clearly beyond you since. Happy birthday, my sweet husband.

  • Happy birthday to the man who always walked beside me and supported me. I am grateful for you today and every day. Happy 60th birthday.

  • Happy birthday to the man who knows me best and still has the guts to stick around.

  • Today is for you to kick back and relax and allow others to make your day as special as you make our everyday. Happy birthday to the man of all men.

  • It’s hard to find a guy who is sensitive, caring, and strong all at once. I consider myself the luckiest woman in the world to have found someone with all of these qualities and more. Happy 60th birthday to my husband.

  • On your milestone birthday, I hope you feel the love and happiness you give to those around you throughout your life. You are a man I will cherish for all of my days, and I am so happy to celebrate this day with you. Happy birthday!

What to Write in a 60th Birthday Card for Your Mum?

  • You raised us to be strong ‒ for ourselves and others. You taught us to be kind to all we meet. You raised us with patience so we would tolerate all. Remembering all of the lessons we learned from you today as we celebrate you ‒ the embodiment of love.

  • You held my hand when I was scared as a child. You hold my hand now when the world leans heavily on me as an adult. And as time goes on, I will hold your hand to keep you safe as you have done all my life. Happy birthday, Mum.

  • I celebrate you today with all the fun and wonder that comes from knowing you! Happy birthday.

  • I tested your patience through the years, I challenged your authority, and I told more tales than truths. Yet you always loved me no matter what. Today, on your birthday, know that you are loved ‒ always.

  • I feel so lucky that I was blessed to have such a wonderful mum. You are my inspiration and my rock. Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Happy birthday, Mum.

  • If mums were daisies, I would have picked you. I am so blessed to have you. Happy birthday, Mum.

  • Some people dress brightly and some try hard to be bold, but rarely are there people who emit light and energy by simply being. I love you, Mum, and wish you a happy 60th birthday.

What to Write in a 60th Birthday Card for Your Dad?

  • To the grill master on his birthday ‒ may you never know a burnt steak or taste a stale beer. Happy birthday, Dad.

  • To the man who sets standards for everyone else in my life: no one will ever compare to the strength you show, the kindness you offer, or the patience you instilled in me. Happy birthday to the best man on Earth.

  • Dad, all of us want to wish you a 60th birthday filled with the magic you created for us in childhood. We wish you wonder and love and all the happiness you bestowed upon us as your children. We love you. Happy birthday.

  • As the child of an amazing man, I can honestly say life is so much better having you as a father. Thank you for your guidance and love. Happy birthday, Dad.

  • I’ve often wondered what kind of person I would be without having you as a dad. I imagine it would be void of colour and wonder and the beauty of acceptance. I wish for you, on your birthday, the gift of magic and happiness you gave to me. Happy birthday, Dad.

  • You might not be a grill master or a football enthusiast, and you might not be the strongest or the bravest dad on the street. But you have always been the most amazing father. Happy birthday, Dad.

  • Growing up, kids would say their dad was the best and I harshly told them they were lying. How could he be when mine was always so superior to every other?

  • Happy birthday to the one greatest dad on Earth.

What to Write in a 60th Birthday Card for Your Brother or Sister?

  • If I had the choice, I would have chosen you as my sibling all over again. Happy birthday.

  • All the teasing, jeering, taunting, and pranks in the world couldn’t stop me from celebrating your birthday with you. Just know payback is coming. Have a relaxing birthday ‒ if you dare.

  • So many years passed and you are still the one I go to when I need someone to talk to or bounce ideas off. Thank you for being such a fantastic friend by choice. Happy birthday.

  • Remember when we were kids and said we couldn’t wait to grow up? Here’s to hoping that will never come to fruition. Happy 60th birthday to the best sibling anyone could never grow old alongside.

  • Happy birthday to my sister, who I always admired for your courage and vibrance. May you have a day filled with the wonder you instill in everyone around you every day.

  • To my devilishly handsome brother on his 60th birthday ‒ may your inner child never fade and may your soul never tire. Here’s to hoping you stay young at heart for many years to come. Happy birthday!

  • I could never understand why my friends always bickered with their siblings. We have always gotten on well, even when we disagree. After all these years, I know it was less about them being unfortunate and more about me having a wonderful sibling with whom to share my life and adventures. Happy 60th birthday, my dear sibling.

What to Write in a 60th Birthday Card for Your Son or Daughter?

  • Until the day you came into my life, I thought very little of love. Love was for people in movies and fairy tales, not me. The day you were born, I realised you were my love, and everything changed.

  • Never apologise for being the brightest in the room or laughing out loud. Don’t say you are sorry for caring or being too proud. At the end of the day, all you can be is you, and to me, that will always be my sweetest dream come true.

  • Cantaloupe is sweet, strawberries too, but neither compares to the sweetness of you. Happy birthday!

  • The moment you were born, I knew everything would change. Today I want to wish you the greatest birthday with as much happiness as you’ve given to me by allowing me to be your parent.

  • We haven’t always agreed, and sometimes we fight, but at the end of the day, when we both say goodnight, I will tell you I love you, and you’ll say “me too,” then I go to sleep basking in the beauty of you. Happy birthday.

  • We all wish for happiness but rarely do we know what that looks like. The day you were born, I needed nothing else to make me smile for the rest of my life. Happy birthday, my sweet child. You are as loved today as the day you were born.

  • All parents think their child holds the key to the universe and the world revolves around their greatness. I just happen to be right. Happy 60th birthday!

What to Write in a 60th Birthday Card for Your Friend?

  • I hope your birthday is as wonderful as you are. Happy birthday.

  • If there were a thousand flowers in the field and you were the weed, I’d pick you. If there were a billion stars shining brightly in the sky and you were the one falling, I would catch you. Out of a sea full of rainbow fish, I’d pick the carp, if it was you. Happy birthday to the friend I chose to be a part of my family.

  • Rarely is a friend so witty, charming, and delightfully good looking. You are also pretty great. Happy birthday, from your amazing friend.

  • I am so happy to have you as a friend to laugh with, cry with, celebrate with, and sit in silence with. Your friendship means the world to me, and I celebrate you on your special day. Happy birthday, my friend.

  • We might not have grown up in the same house or had the same parents, but you are the family I chose and you mean the world to me. Happy birthday.

  • I hope your birthday is full of surprise and wonder and love and laughter, and all of your wishes come true.

  • Boisterously fabulous is what you are! I hope you have a birthday that is as fun and unpredictable as you are, my friend. Happy birthday.

  • Wishing you a brilliant birthday filled with love, happiness, and wonderful memories for many years to come.

  • To my dear friend on your birthday: you spread love and joy wherever you go and I wish you all the happiness you deserve on your 60th birthday.

  • I consider myself blessed to know such a wonderful person as you. To call you my friend fills me with joy and pride. Happy 60th birthday to a beautiful soul.

  • May your birthday be filled with the light and love you spread to so many others.
