All great questions and honestly, we can answer them with one simple word: yes. Yes, you should send a thank you note. It’ll rarely be a poor choice, however you don’t always *need* to.

Take me to…

What to write on my friend’s birthday card?
The actual birthday cards.
Bonus: What bday cards would we send to the friends in FRIENDS.

Picking out the perfect birthday card for your friend. 

You know your friends better than anyone else, certainly better than us. Being the best person for the job, you have all the unique information you need to make the best choice. Think about your friend’s hobbies, favorite foods or perhaps even their favorite colors. The birthday card you choose for your friend should reflect their personality in some way, shape, or form. With that said, don’t let all this extra cool friend knowledge bog you down from making a choice. After all, you’re just picking out a birthday card so relax and have some fun.

Real friends send real birthday cards. Send a stellar card in minutes. Postable will print, address and mail it for you.

What should I write in my friend’s birthday card?

Writing the perfect friend birthday card message is easier than you think. While the message should really be unique to you and your friendship, there are a few elements that apply to everyone that you can keep in mind:

  • Don’t write a novel. 
  • Reflect (a bit) on your friendship. 
  • Wish them a happy birthday. 

Don’t write a novel. 

Birthday cards for friends are not letters. This isn’t the time to reflect on and on about the entire evolution of your friendship. The space you have is limited and for good reason. Your birthday message should be short and sweet and to the point. 

Do reflect on your friendship.

Wait, what?! Hear us out. While we don’t recommend diving deep into your friendship history, we do think it’s a nice gesture to reflect a tiny bit on the state of your friendship. Perhaps you’ve recently reconnected or you’ve been besties for over a decade or you’ve just recently started spending time together. Just a sentence or two on how much you appreciate their friendship is a really nice reminder to your friend that you’re grateful for them. 

Wish them a happy birthday. 

This may seem obvious, but if you get caught up in the rest of the birthday message there’s a good chance you’ll forget the whole point. Start and finish with a birthday wish of some kind. You can start with a classic ‘Happy Birthday!’ and end your message with a few specific wishes for your friend (ex. wishing you all the wealth and health in this next year).

What is a unique way to wish someone a happy birthday?

The best way to come up with something unique for your friend’s birthday is to think outside the box while simultaneously keeping the unique proclivities of your friend’s personality in mind. 

A birthday card is obviously step number one in unique birthday wishes. Nobody sends snail mail anymore so receiving a real, hold-in-your-hand birthday card really is unique. 

Step two will vary wildly depending on each person. Some things to think about would include your friend’s favorite foods, hobbies, dreams and ‘wish lists’. If your friend has been talking about that laser tag spot every day for the last few months — take that and run with it. If your friend adores being outdoors, plan a surprise picnic birthday with a few other friends and some birthday decorations. Perhaps, they have to work on their birthday, in which case send them some of their favorite food for lunch as a surprise. Not sure what to send? Cup cakes are typically a safe bet.

The ways in which to make your friend’s birthday special and unique really are endless, but we’ve mapped out some truly epic ideas in greater detail in our how to make your bestie’s birthday epic post

Now for the actual cards…

What bday cards would we send to the friends on FRIENDS.

All these birthday cards for friends, got us thinking about another group of people that we’ve never *actually met. Everyone knows the iconic 90s show FRIENDS, but the question is — does anyone love it enough to pick out the perfect birthday card for each fictional character?! Well, we do. 

If you’re a big fan of this delightful never-to-get-old show, then keep reading. 

Here are the cards we’d choose for each friend on FRIENDS — 

Ross

Let’s start with good old Rossy Ross. The goofy guy who we could all count on to get us out of a pickle — except if that pickle was getting stuck in a bathroom with sweaty leather pants. He’s the friend that we all wish we had if for no other reason than to be our stellar trivia team player. For Ross, we’ve chosen our smart-iest (that’s a word, right?) birthday card because he would totally appreciate it.

This card by E. Frances Paper seems like the most logical choice. If you didn’t know that Ross was a paleontologist then you should really question what you’re doing with your life. There’s really no better play on words when it comes to Dino word play, now is there? Want to send this dino-licious birthday card to your own friend? Don’t let us stop you!

Rachel

After all, Rachel is the queen of this show. The series starts out with her practically wearing a ball gown — how much more royal does it get. OK, ok… It was a wedding dress, but you get the point. Even though Rachel may seem a bit needy and helpless at first, she certainly blossoms into her own epic self in no time. That’s why this bold yet elegant Hello Paper Co. birthday card is the perfect choice.

Chandler

The funniest friend on FRIENDS. Or so he would say, anyway. A maker of epic jokes and a lover of baths… Our choice for this fella’s birthday card is a little bit of an inside joke. If you know, you know… But we’ll tell you anyway. Chandler, while a little hesitant at first, grows to love a good bath. And can you blame him? And for his birthday, we’d send him a card to remind him of this love of bubbles, salts and bath spaceship toys.

Monica

The gal with the plan. Monica always knows how to plan a birthday party — even if it means alienating her good friend Phoebe — but she’s also quite fond of food. And honestly, we get it. Who wouldn’t love to eat?! So for Monica, we’ve chosen a food related birthday card to remind her of some of her favorite things on her special day. A food pun and a stellar illustration — this Bench Pressed birthday card would be perfect for Monica. She’d totally get a kick out of the pun and appreciate how personalized the card is to her personality. 

Phoebe

Phoebe is the friend we all wish he had. She’s quirky, funny and oh so loyal. She always tells the truth — remember the one where we learned this fun fact?! She’s also the edgiest of all the friends having grown up on the streets of New York and what not, but you’d never know it being around her. She loves all things artsy and quirky is the name of the game with this friend’s birthday card. Everything about this hippie-esque, bunny, colorful vibes card by Elizabeth Grubaugh screams PHOEBE BUFFAY. Have a friend like Phoebe in your life? Remind Phoebe how delightful she is with this one.

Joey

Joey loves to eat almost as much as Ross loves dinos. Almost. He’s also the friend that everyone loves to love — especially if you’re Phoebe. Either way, if we were to send Joey a birthday card the subject matter is pretty obvious — food, food and more food. Anyone remember the Joey special? Two Pizzas! Joey loves a good pizza — can you blame him? This pizza birthday card only seems right for the friend that loves pizza almost as much as he loves sandwiches. It’s a hard choice to make, we get it. 

Real friends send real birthday cards. Send a stellar card in minutes. Postable will print, address and mail it for you.

 

22 Dog Greeting Cards to Send to Your Pup-Loving Friends
