These days, saying ‘happy birthday’ to someone can be as impersonal as saying hello or thanks when you’re in a hurry or when you’re preoccupied with something.
It can be a very generic thing to say, so you need to make your birthday message more creative and unique for it to stand out and for it to be remembered. Here are some great examples.
