Your nieces birthday is a wonderful occasion. The daughter of your sister may not seem like the closest family members but the bond that often develops between a niece and aunt or uncle can be one of the deepest and strongest.
So when it’s your nieces birthday you will want to celebrate and enjoy the day with her. (The least you will want to do is wish your little niece a happy birthday!) Maybe give her a lovely gift and card?
But what you’re going to write in that card isn’t always easy. You will want to express exactly how you feel and make her know what she means to you.
But if words don’t come easily to you or you need a little help then we’re here. Follow this guide or use our examples to get the perfect birthday wishes for your niece.
What to Write in a Niece’s Birthday Card
If you want to write your niece’s birthday greetings yourself and not buy a pre written card then follow these few, easy steps:
- Begin your message with a simple greeting such as “Dear ____”, including your nieces name.
- Next make sure you wish her a happy birthday. You can also stick to something simple here by just saying “Happy Birthday!” or “to my niece on her birthday, have a wonderful day”
- If you want you can go a bit further and include some personal anecdotes or explain just how much she means to you.
- Depending on your relationship you might also want to make your message funny or have a religious tone.
- Finish your message with a warm closing, maybe wishing your niece lots of love.
If you’d prefer not to write your own though then try one of the many prewritten wishes, messages and poems below.
