Celebrating with loved ones
Birthdays conjure up images of balloons, presents, cake, ice cream and a general feeling of happiness. From a young age, children associate birthdays with parties and celebrations, but as we add years to our life, we truly realize what a privilege it is to get older. Maturity and wisdom come with age, and birthdays become less about parties and gifts, and more about spending the day celebrating with the ones we love. As we age, and birthdays become quieter and smaller celebrations, birthday quotes remain a great way to remind your loved one how special they are.
Birthday quotes are useful for any age, but especially for celebrating what are usually considered milestone birthdays. Turning 18 is a special birthday as it traditionally marks the passage into adulthood, just as turning 50 also tends to be celebrated as a milestone birthday. And reaching the age of 60, 75 or even 100, is definitely a reason to celebrate! To mark any of these significant birthdays, perhaps make a special handmade sign or card featuring a birthday quote. You may be able to think of a quote that holds special meaning to your loved one. If you feature a meaningful quote on a handmade card, it will mean much more to your loved one than simply buying a card from a store. And don’t be afraid to use not only sentimental quotes, but humorous quotes as well. Funny situations can come with getting older and it is perfectly ok to add some humor to the celebration.
Birthday quotes are meaningful
There are other ways to incorporate birthday quotes into your loved one’s special day. You can create a banner to hang up on the wall, and you can also decorate the cake with a birthday quote written in icing. You could even ask your entire family to each think of a personal birthday quote to share, then come together to create a video featuring these quotes. The finished video can be shown to your loved one on their birthday – what a great way to celebrate! Be creative and make your loved one feel special. Remind them that this day is all about them and that you are excited to share in the celebration.
One of the best things about using birthday quotes is that it costs nothing, yet it is often more meaningful than gifts or other material things. This year, when you celebrate your loved one’s special day, instead of just saying “Happy Birthday!”, gift them a unique birthday quote picked out just for them.
