Turning 60 is a major milestone, as many people see it as the beginning of their life's last quarter. However, that doesn't mean birthday wishes can't provoke a smile: "Happy 60th birthday! Sure, you've been around the block a time or two, but you look GREAT doing it!"Continue Reading
Another option is to play with the idea of the person reaching vintage status. "Lots of wines get better with age. A few people do, too. Congratulations on making it to the big 6-0! You're a rare vintage indeed!" Of course, letting someone know that being 60 doesn't mean they aren't sexy can work, too.
BirthdayMessages.net suggests: "Happy 60th birthday! 60 years ago, you were a baby. At 60, you’re simply babilicious." Acknowledging that the birthday celebrant is hitting a major milestone while keeping things fun, light and fresh is key. Referencing something from their past, like a pop song that dominated the charts or a celebrity who was big when they were growing up, can work to illustrate the passage of time in a light-hearted way. This approach requires some creativity and time, but the recipient will know the wishes you're sending them aren't generic and have been crafted with them in mind.Learn more about Birthdays
