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
