#2 Moose-t Have Birthday Wishes

The magnificent moose can also join in our wordplay.  Just add 't' at the end and moose becomes 'moose-t'. Use in place of ‘must’ or ‘most’.

  • Here’s to the moose-t amazing (wife, husband, son, daughter).  Happy Birthday

  • Happy Birthday!  I moose-t tell you how much you mean to me.  Love you!

  • It’s your birthday.  Make the moose-t of it!

  • It’s your birthday and you look younger every year.  You moose-t tell me your secret!


#3 Owl Give You Some Ideas

Owl can be use in place of ‘'I will' or ‘All’.  Owl (I will) give you some ideas of what owl (all) I mean but it’s not owl-ways (always) limited to the word owl.  We can go further with the owl-related puns and use ‘hoot’ instead of ‘who’d’ and ‘talon’ for ‘telling’.  Let’s give it a try.

Great Horned Owl

  • Happy Birthday!  Are you having a second piece of cake?  Owl if you will.

  • Wishing you owl the best today and every day.  Happy Birthday!

Great Grey Owl

  • Hoot have thought that so many candles could fit on a cake??  Happy Birthday!

  • I’m talon you, you don’t look a day over ##. Happy Birthday!’

Snowy Owl flying

  • To my favourite big (sister, brother), thanks for owl-ways being older than me.

  • Happy Birthday!  I’m talon you that I’ll owl-ways love you.


#4 Ducks Quack Me Up🦆

Duck puns are fun.  I’ll leave it up to you if you want to wish someone a ‘d***ing fantastic’ birthday.  Instead, I’ve come up with these:

  • Waddle you wish for this year?

  • Quack open a bottle of champagne!  It’s your birthday

  • All hands on duck!  It’s time to eat some birthday cake


#5 Bear With Me

I can bearly wait to share these beary sweet birthday wishes with you.

Black Bear

  • Happy birthday, my darling (husband, wife)!  I love you beary much!

  • Life would be unbearable if I couldn’t wish you a happy birthday

  • Happy Birthday!  I can bearly wait until we are together again

  • Why settle for the bear minimum??  You deserve everything you wish for.  Blow out those candles and wish big wishes.  Happy Birthday!

  • I hope that you have a beary Happy Birthday!

Remember, it's not just about the words on the card, but the thought and effort behind them. So, take a moment to step away from the cookie-cutter birthday card aisle and let your creativity run wild. Your loved one will surely appreciate the personal touch and will be reminded of your thoughtfulness every time they see the card.
