101 Formal Birthday Wishes When You Follow Protocol

Birthdays are significant. Everyone should have a birthday celebration that stands out and lives in his or her memories. Formal birthday wishes are especially important. By sending them, you are letting people in your life who work hard, live far away, add to your livelihood, and make your work easier know that they have not been forgotten and that you do value them.

For formal birthday wishes, it is preferable to select ones that suit the type of relationships you have with particular people in your life. For your boss, you want to choose a wish that is both celebratory and appropriate, for a faraway relative, a wish reminding him or her, that no matter how much physical distance there is between you, you live in each other’s hearts, for a client, a wish expressing gratitude for giving you a job, and for a colleague, a wish hoping their helpfulness is reciprocated.
