Happy Birthday Son Quotes & Wishes
From being the cheeky chappie when he was young, to a moody video game-playing teenager, to the sarcastic millennial he is today, a son is someone who specialises in being your pride and joy (as well as your own personal pain in the arse!)
But even when they annoy you at times, you know there’s no one quite like them in the whole world and when their birthday arrives each year (once you get over the disbelief that an entire year has flown by!)
You can’t help but think about those precious, heart-touching memories of him through the years and how he should know just how important he is.
But how do you write a Birthday card that matches his energy?
How do you let him know of his legendary status without sounding too mushy?
Whether it’s a milestone year like his 21st and you want to fill your card message with pride or maybe you just want a simple quirky phrase, we’ve created a list of happy birthday son quotes and ideas to give you the inspiration you need.

Whatever message type you choose, we hope it’s inspired you to get creatively thinking about what card he would like to receive.
If he is obsessed with a certain sport or hobby, it might be the perfect time to mention it.
Or better yet, if he’s the pranking type, why not get revenge and lure him into a false, loving sentiment on the outside of the card then a “JUST KIDDING!” greeting on the inside?
There are many areas and themes you can choose from, so feel free to browse our selection of funny Son cards and let him know in your own way just how much he’s appreciated.
