1. To my best friend,
I know I don’t say it enough but I love you with all of my being and I’m always grateful and thankful to God for depositing you in my life. We’ve had each other’s backs from when we were young and you were so protective of me as if I was your little sister, now we are all grown up and argue a lot, sometimes you behave like a clown but throughout the years, you’ve remained a steady friend and a constant part of my life. We’ve been through thick and thin together and for all the moments we’ve shared and created, I’m thankful to you for them. Happy birthday, best pal.
2. Dear bestie,
I was reading an article the other day of what best friends are for and to my delight, you ticked all the boxes, I can’t say I’m surprised because you’ve been an awesome and consistent friend over the years, you’ve been tried and trusted, you’ve been everything to me and more. Not only have you kept my secrets but you’ve seen me through the worst and best days, not only do you respect and appreciate me but you’ve shown countless times how much you value me. Your birthday is the perfect time to tell you that I cherish and love you more than you can imagine. Happy birthday, bestie.
3. Hey best friend,
I need to let you know that you are so precious to me, I have never regretted choosing you as my friend and confidant and when I needed a best friend, you came easily to mind; your aura, charisma and your rare traits of sincerity, care and generosity made you qualified without an interview and you’ve done a lot and even exceeded expectations, you not only know how to get me out of my dark and moody times, your maturity and understanding is also second to none, just when I thought I’ve seen it all, you always have a pleasant surprise up your sleeve. Thank you for all you do. Happy birthday, best friend ever!
4. Hey, best friend forever,
To the most amazing, crazy, witty, intelligent, loving, caring, generous, playful and cutely stupid friend I’ve ever had, this is a shout out to you on your special day because I am going to let whoever cares to know that you’ve been a great friend anyone could ever ask for. You’ve been crazy all year long but that is why I like you anyway. You are so full of life and zeal that negative vibes do not stand a chance with you. Thank you for bringing blinding sunshine into my life, I’ll forever cherish and love you. Hearty cheers, best friend forever.
5. Dearest bestie,
Your type is rare, you are like a gem among stones, if one is not careful, one might take all for stones but I’m glad I saw the gem in you and decided to have you for myself, you are so precious to me and I can’t trade you for anything, you’ve been a rock; solid and sure, wide enough to lean on, you’ve been an anchor; always drawing me out of my dark moods and thoughts, you’ve been a pillow; fluffy and always cushioning my head when I’m tired, you’ve been a surfing board; allowing me to ride on you even when the waves of life come calling, I can go on and on to describe how awesome you are. Hearty cheers, bestie.
6. To the best friend ever,
You are the best thing that ever happened to me, I know that might sound like a cliché but trust me when I say I mean it, you came into my life when I had given up on friendship, even though I was resistant at first, slowly but surely, you weaved yourself into my life and you opened me up to love, trust and care. You’ve treated me like a rare gem to value, you’ve handled my childishness with so much maturity, you are the very definition of a true friend so I’m going to say it again and you are the best thing that has ever happened to me. I cherish you with the whole of my being. Cheers on your birthday, best friend ever.
7. To my world best,
I’ll always cherish my friendship with you from now till time immemorial, we’ve been together as best of friends for years but every time, I discover something amazing about you; you’re so in tune with me that you get me more than anyone, not having to explain everything and you understanding easily is a big relief and blessing to me, not to talk of how you handle life’s issues, you are successful and you’ve achieved a lot and I’m so proud to have you as my best friend. Your new year open doors for more achievements and breakthroughs. Happy birthday, world best friend.
8. To the beautiful you,
Everything about you is beautiful, including your silliness and craziness. You are so full of life and gusto and you are so optimistic and radiate positive vibe, your intelligence is on another level and your beautiful soul pumps out love and care endlessly. The way you put others before you brings tears to my eyes and your manner of being thoughtful and paying attention, even to the little details is commendable and enviable. You are the perfect best friend; you give love and light wherever you go and my chest swells with pride at how much you’ve achieved. Hearty cheers, my beautiful friend.
9. Dear crazy bestie,
This is the perfect opportunity to remind you that you are not getting younger, you’ll soon become an old man with full grey hair so consider reducing your craziness and silliness and start getting serious with your life, lol. Scratch that! Continue living your life with so much gusto and energy, let your contagious positivity and silliness never grow dim, continue to break records and set new challenges, continue being the awesome perfect crazy best friend anyone can ever wish for, continue dishing out your uniqueness to the world and those around you.
