10 Perfect Birthday Quotes That Are Funnier Than Anything In A Greeting Card

I have never been one to go crazy over my birthday. It’s not that I hate getting older (liquor stores STILL think my ID is a fake when I try to buy alcohol), but more because it seems to have lost its appeal.

In all honesty, I would rather get takeout and get drunk at home with my best friend than try to make reservations at a restaurant and go to a sweaty club afterward.

But then again, I am a homebody, so that’s usually my answer for all weekend plans.


One thing I do love, however, is getting excited about my boyfriend’s birthday.

Granted, we didn’t really do much this year (I’m boring, I know), but treating him to drinks or taking him out to a movie always ends up being just as much for me, too.

If I’m being honest, I think I get more excited about his birthdays than my own just because I love treating him the way he deserves to be treated on his special day.

That said — and this goes for all holidays — I hate buying cards, so much so that I would rather break out in hives than buy a cheesy card at CVS.

I'm the type of person who stands in the card aisle at the grocery store for 20 minutes before I give up and buy the one with the least amount of words or the cheapest — whichever one is closest.

Plus I would MUCH rather buy a blank card and write something personal because it means more that way. (And the sentiments in most greeting cards are lame to say the least.)


But trying to find words that are both funny and meaningful for my boyfriend can be super hard, especially if I don’t want to end up sounding exactly like the birthday cards I’m trying to avoid.

If you’ve been in the same situation as I have, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Luckily, we found some of the best birthday quotes for your partner (that they’ll love) so that you don’t have to go digging for the perfect words yourself.
