  1. Happy 40th birthday to my special person. I hope you enjoy the birthday cake I made for you. Lighting all the candles took me about 20 minutes and almost caused a blazing inferno in the middle of the living room, but luckily I got things under control. I guess that’s the level of dedication the world’s most amazing husband deserves. Just don’t make a mess when you’re eating it, because I’m signing off for the day now. Bye!
  2. Happy 40th birthday to my dear husband. If this was 100 years ago, you would already be two-thirds of the way through your life. However, with all the rapid advancements in modern medicine, the average person’s life expectancy has now increased dramatically and people are living for much longer. I feel bittersweet about this, on one hand, I get to spend a very long life with the sweetest man in my life. However, on the other hand, I’ll be stuck with a pensioner who acts like a baby boy for another four decades or longer.
  3. Happy fortieth birthday wishes to my lovely husband. You know you’re getting old when the average birthday card you receive is no longer plastered with images of beer mugs, vodka shots, and balloons, but rather with pictures of the countryside, border collies, and vintage cars, nicely rounded off with a worn-out dad joke that you’ve probably heard a million times. Welcome to middle age my love!
  4. They say that life begins at 40. This means that the last 39 years were just a warm-up. Hope you’ve saved some of that energy from the last four decades, because you’re going to need it to get through all the tasks I’ve got lined up for you, starting with the clean-up operation led by your beautiful wife once your 40th birthday party finishes.
  5. Sooo, the big 4-0 huh? I think it’s safe to say that, unless you’re a famous rapper ie. Young Jeezy, Young M.A or Young Thug, calling yourself young doesn’t quite have the same ring to it at your age. Yet, I do not doubt that even though it’s your fortieth birthday, being as full of life as you are, you’ll be partying into the early hours like you’re eighteen again.

  3. Happy 40th birthday to my darling husband. Now, I know that you’ve got it into your head that when people ask your age and you reply “I am four decades old”, it somehow makes you sound edgy and cool.

  4. Happy 40th birthday to my dear husband. Sorry if your present isn’t that amazing this year, I blew most of the budget by buying all the candles for your birthday cake. Forty isn’t a small number if you haven’t noticed darling. I still love you all the same, but next year I’ll just write your age with icing, much cheaper and time effective.
