FAQ

What do you wish someone on their 40th birthday?

When someone you care about is celebrating their 40th birthday, you want to be sure that your happy birthday wish is a memorable one! Forty is a milestone birthday, the start of a new decade and a new phase in life. For this reason, you want your happy birthday wish to be something inspirational, positive, and genuine. You can never go wrong with a heartfelt, personal message, which is why you should take into account both the recipient’s personality and your relationship with them. A wish for a close friend or family member can be more detailed and personal, such as a expressing your hopes that they land a promotion that they’ve been working towards at work, for example. If you’re writing your birthday wish for someone with whom you’re not as close, you can simply wish them good health and success in the coming year. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out our selection of birthday wishes to help get you started on writing your own happy 40th birthday wish!

How do I write a funny 40th birthday message?

Writing a good funny 40th birthday message necessitates striking a delicate balance between humorous and heartfelt. Keep in mind that not everyone will appreciate a joke or a ribbing in their birthday wish, and that it may not be appropriate for every recipient. Carefully consider their personality and your relationship with them to see if a funny 40th birthday wish is a good fit. Most people will appreciate a funny birthday message, however, as it’s a sign that you’ve put a little extra thought and effort into the message. If you’ve determined that a funny birthday wish is the way to go, you should always take care to end your message with genuine wish for a happy birthday, and maybe even a sincere compliment. The joke should be lighthearted and fun – no dark humor or anything similar. Funny messages are also best left on the short side, so take care to not write too much, as it could detract from their humorous effect. If you want to be sure that the joke is well received, stick to jokes about “getting old” that reference lighthearted things; think “back in my day” type jokes. If you’re having trouble thinking of what to write, take a look at some funny birthday messages here at Styiens for a little bit of inspiration!
