As can be noticed by these messages, the tone is a bit serious, though it packs a very meaningful and gratifying punch. It could be used for people who also contributed much to celebrate your birthday or to those ones who you thought had forgotten about you but actually hasn’t.
You can also add a little more finesse on your messages, putting in some metaphors and comparisons to spice things up a little bit. These messages may make it seem as though they came out from greeting cards sold at the mall or copy-pasted from the internet. But it doesn’t matter because it doesn’t take the sincerity away. In fact, the effort of putting in some creative touch shows the dedication put in the words. Here are some examples:
As we get older, birthdays can draw lesser attention! Thank you all for continuing to keep me in your thoughts on my special day!
Indeed. As life tends to get busy, birthdays are given less attention. But there are people who still remember yours.
As the hours of this birthday wind down, I just wanted to take a minute and say thank you.

Unless we try to forget it, other people’s words will always stay in us.
’Time marches on.’ True, but regardless how long we’re apart, your birthday wishes always make me grateful.

I wouldn’t mind getting a birthday card that plays the Happy Birthday tune when opened. It astounds me that you know me too well. And you even wrote me some wishes, Thank you for thinking of me on my special day!
Yes. These may seem childish, but it’s always the thought that counts.
I know we couldn’t spend time together on my birthday because of our distance but reading your wishes for me took me back to moments and places we both shared. Thank you for defying time and space for me on my birthday! Looking forward to see you soon.
Some birthday messages really bring you back to good times and good places. Thank the people who remind you of these things.
Now that’s some wonderful lines. It did spice things up a bit. But you know what makes things lighter? Humor. Of course, you can also add humor to your thank you messages. Admit it, some of your friends may have already clowned you one way or another in telling their birthday wishes. It’s just fair to get back at them in the same manner.
This breaks down barriers between you and the person who greets you, proving more of how comfortable you have always been to each other. This retains sincerity, despite, of course, basically turning into some harmless joke. Plus, it also allows you to use your advantage as the birthday celebrant.
Nobody has the right to be mean to you, but you have every right to be mean to them. Just kidding! Here are some humorous messages you can say:
Thanks for the birthday wishes, guys. Er, you would have remembered my birthday without a Facebook reminder, right?
Even if they needed a Facebook reminder, thank them still.
Thanks for the birthday wishes, everyone. Hearing from you slightly lessened my despair at turning a year older.
Turning a year older isn’t THAT bad. I mean… right?
To those who posted birthday wishes on my Facebook wall… thanks for making me look way more popular than I really am.
They really did boost up your socials, even if it’s just for a day. Thank them for it.
Thanks for all the Happy Birthday wishes, even the ones that teased me for being so old!
They are just joking anyway. Thank them for always making you laugh.
You remembered my birthday this year! Thank you! Of course I would always remember the one time you forgot my birthday, but that’s okay. For your kind wishes this year, I shall let it slide. Thank you!
You’re allowed to be quite mean on your special day. But don’t forget to say thank you.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes and thank you Facebook for reminding them.
Okay. Maybe it’s just right; you also thank Facebook for reminding everyone to greet you.
Thanks for the Birthday Wishes from everyone who noticed my name today on the upper right corner of your Facebook page. Thank you.
Yes. In the end, it’s just Facebook, really.
Thanks for avoiding stock greetings from the supermarket shelves and taking time to write such a beautiful handwritten message. You’re the best.
But in all honesty, though, even if they did buy these stock greetings, they still thought of you. Thank everyone.
I might be one year older, but that does not mean I lost my ability to party. Thanks for showing me a good time on my birthday.
Who said you’re too old to party?!?! No one is too old to party, just like no one is too old to say thank you.
Birthdays: the only day of the year you allow me to act like diva and say nothing.
So act like a diva all the way! But don’t forget to be thankful.
Thank you for sending me such a nice birthday message. Why can’t you be this nice to me all year around?
For those who can take your jokes always, thank them.
Thank you so much for the oceans of birthday wishes and messages you sent me on my Big Day. Now, I need to go back and continue reading them if that is okay with you.
When you get piles of birthday messages, take time to read them. It’s good manners.
Has anyone had more gifts than wishes on their birthday? The answer is a big NO. I knew I wouldn’t be the first to achieve that. Thanks for your numerous wishes though.
Even if you don’t receive any gifts, still be thankful.
Yes, yes, I’ve read all your wishes. I’m just waiting for the gifts. Just kidding. Many thanks for wishing me will on my special day! (But really, I wouldn’t mind getting one)
But it wouldn’t hurt to expect one.
There are also some special friends you don’t always say cheesy lines to. Your birthday could be your chance to do so! Let’s cut out the humor, and let’s be cheesy with the special people in our lives. These messages are for all those friends who went out of their way to put a smile on your face on your special day:

Did you really stay up, watch the clock tick until 12 o’clock just to be the first to wish me? I can’t believe I’m so lucky to have a friend like you. Thank you!
It puts a smile on your face when somebody else reminds you that it’s already your birthday before you even notice it.
I was feeling terrible about turning a year older until I read your message which rid me of my blues. Now I feel that growing old is totally worth it, as long as it is with friends like you. Thanks.

Friendships and happiness are, most of the time, inseparable. Thank your friends always.
Why do I have a feeling that you sent me these cheesy quotes of copy-pasted wishes just because you forgot the gift you promised to give me last time? Just kidding! Thank you always for being a remarkable friend!
Even cheesy lines are something to be thankful for. And of course, the best way to say thank you to all those who thought of you on your birthday is to give back the wishes that have been given to you. Here are some messages that allow you not to take all the joy you received for yourself but rather share it with the people who gave you happiness in the first place:
