Happy Birthday Sister
Sisters are a special kind of blessing.
They’re the ones who have your back. The ones you can call in the middle of the night and they will show up on your doorstep with a shovel and some tarp, no questions asked.
So, when it comes to their special day, it makes sense to honour them in the best possible way.
But not all sisters are made equal, and neither are the messages we wish to send to them.
Here we’ve collected some of the best birthday wishes, quotes and messages to help you send that special sister that will have her reaching for the birthday card time and time again, just to read your words.
