July is a time for sunshine, swimming, and best of all, birthdays! If you're looking for the perfect way to show your love and make the birthday boy or girl laugh, we've got the solution. Read on for our expert advice on crafting a hilarious and memorable birthday card that they'll never forget.

Start with the basics

First things first, let's talk about the basics. We recommend starting with a classic birthday greeting, using the person's name and adding a fun twist. Something like "Happy birthday, you big ol' firework!" or "Hope you have a birthday as sweet as your favourite ice cream flavour!"

These kinds of playful puns set the tone for the rest of the card and make the recipient smile right from the start.

Cards personalised just for them

Next up, it's time to get personal. Think about what makes the birthday boy or girl unique and celebrate it! Whether they love to dance, are a huge dog lover, or can never resist a second slice of cake, incorporating these details into your message shows that you really care.

For example, "I hope your birthday is full of as much wagging tails and slobbery kisses as your beloved pup gives you on a daily basis!" is sure to make them chuckle.

Of course, a birthday card wouldn't be complete without a good old-fashioned joke or two. Try to keep things light and silly - no one needs a reminder that they're getting older!

You could go for a classic one-liner like "You're not old, you're just well-seasoned!" or poke fun at their hobbies with something like "Looks like your new age comes with a new set of golf clubs!"

July birthday cards for every personality

We cater for all personalities and have cards like:

Why not add a little doodle in your greetings card

Now that we've covered the essentials, it's time to take things to the next level with a drawing or doodle. Even if you're not a professional artist, adding a little sketch or illustration to your message can make it all the more special.

Try drawing a cake covered in candles or a silly caricature of the birthday boy or girl. It doesn't have to be perfect - just something that shows you took the time to add a personal touch.

Finally, end things on a positive note by expressing your love and well-wishes for the year to come. You could keep it simple with "Wishing you all the happiness on your special day and always!" or get a little more creative with "May your year be filled with sunshine, unicorns, and unlimited snacks!"

Whatever you choose, make sure it comes straight from the heart and leaves the recipient feeling loved and appreciated.


Crafting a hilarious and heartfelt birthday card may seem like a daunting task, but with a little humour and personality, it's easy to make your loved ones feel extra special.

Remember to keep things light, add a personal touch, and end your message with lots of love. Happy writing!
