How to Write a Letter for a Birthday

Save

A birthday letter is a personal greeting that you can send on someone special's day. Birthday letters usually express fond emotions and warm wishes. A handwritten letter shows your friends or relatives you are thinking of them and that you want to honor their birthdays by communicating. A letter can become a treasured keepsake for the recipient to view years later.

  • Write the date you are drafting the birthday letter and include "Dear [friend's name here]" under the date. Hand write the birthday letter to add a more personal touch.

  • Include the reason you are writing the letter within the first two to three lines.

  • Hand write a personal memory, a nice quote, or another pertinent fact pertaining to the recipient in the second paragraph of the birthday letter.

  • Note you are thinking of the recipient on that day, that you hope the day is special, and that you expect to call or contact the person soon.

  • Close the birthday letter with: "Love, [your relative]" and refer to your relationship in the closing bracket. Some examples of birthday letter closings include: "Your friend," "Sincerely," or "Wishing you well on your birthday."

Tips & Warnings

  • Write the birthday letter from the heart. Tell friends how you feel about them and why you value the relationship that you have with them.
  • Try to send your letter out as early as possible. Late birthday letters can offend recipients.
