What’s a good birthday wish for someone who’s turning 21?

Birthdays are always exciting, but there’s nothing quite like a 21st birthday. It’s the birthday that marks the final step into adulthood, with all its freedoms and responsibilities. Remember that the recipient of your message is no longer a child or teenager, and your birthday wish should reflect that. Even if you’re older than them, take care to ensure that your birthday message comes off as happy and encouraging, and can’t be misconstrued as patronizing in any way. Start off by congratulating them, and tell them how excited you are that they’ve reached this very important milestone. Wish them a happy birthday, of course, and then wish them good things for the future. If you know specific goals they have, like finishing their undergrad or landing an internship, you can wish them success on those particular goals. If you don’t know any specific goals they have, play it safe with a more general wish for happiness and success in the future. If you're struggling to come up with a 21st birthday message, check out our birthday wishes here at Styiens for some ideas and inspiration!

What’s a good way to wish someone a happy 21st birthday?

There are so many different ways to wish someone a happy 21st birthday! The most important thing to consider when writing your birthday wish is of course the recipient: Where are they in life? Do they have something they’re working on accomplishing or a goal they’re working towards? Are they taking some time to find themselves? Twenty-one can be a confusing age because it is a time when many people are still trying to find their direction in life. That’s why it’s so important that your birthday message be not only thoughtful, but also personal. This is a big milestone after all, one that warrants a bit more thought and effort! Start by thinking about the person you’re sending the message to, and where they are in life. This will guide you on what to wish them for their 21st – if they’re working on landing an internship, for example, you can offer words of encouragement and wish them good luck. If you’re close with the person, you can be a bit more personal. Recall a funny anecdote or a memory that you shared, or slip in an inside joke! If you’re not very close, keep your message simple and warm, wishing them success and happiness in the future.
