Your grace, strength, and love have made our family life so beautiful.  Take time on this special day to bask in all the glory you deserve.
  4. Wishing you the happiest birthday Mom! As you turn fifty, I want to say thank you for guiding me through life and showing me how to take on the world. I couldn’t count all the amazing things you’ve done for me if I tried, but just know that without you I would never have become the person I am today. 
  5. On this heartfelt birthday, I want to express my gratitude to my favorite person, my awesome mother. I’m lucky to have such an amazing mom who I can also call my best friend.

Funny 50th birthday wishes for Mom

  1. Happy 50th birthday Mom! They say that you start to lose your sweet tooth as you get older. If that’s the case, then I guess that means more cake for the rest of us today and for more cake for each year ahead. On that note, wishing you a long life with many more wonderful birthdays and plenty more sweet treats that we will be happy to relieve you of. 
  2. Happy birthday Mom. I used to think that the top qualities of the best mom would include extreme leniency, unlimited pocket money, and a carefree attitude when it comes to raising your kids. I realize now that the best mom is actually someone who gives you the right balance of guidance and discipline bundled with unconditional love. I guess that leaves you somewhere in the middle then, teetering towards the former if I’m honest.
  3. Happy birthday you Golden Oldie! You’re not exactly the most lovey dovey soppy type of person, so touching birthday wishes were out of the question. Instead, here’s a message to say you’re not doing too bad for a 50-year-old considering the eventful life you have led. You’ve probably experienced more than someone does in 80 years, but you continue to live life like you’re twenty-something! 
  4. Happy birthday young lady. I’ve planned a fabulous night out in town. We can start with some shots at a bar and then move on to some glasses (or bottles) of vino at the nightclub. Don’t forget to bring your ID, otherwise the bouncers might think you’re underage!
  5. Wishing the happiest birthday to the wonderful woman who has saved me from an early grave more times than I can count. Here’s to many more years of helping me to navigate through life and avoid all the pitfalls. Sorry, Mom, I’ve learned a lot from you, but your work isn’t quite over yet.
  6. Wishing a huge happy birthday to the amazing woman who has kept our family life running smoothly like a well-oiled machine. We’re now entering a new era where robots will soon be outperforming humans on all fronts, although I highly doubt they’ll be able to create a model that can outdo my wonderful mother who seems to have unlimited battery life and a mind boggling operating system.

  1. Happy birthday Mom! You must be so happy that you get to celebrate your 50th birthday with your favorite child right by your side. Your other children aka my siblings will also be in attendance, but let’s be honest, they aren’t quite at my level. You’re honestly one-of-a-kind, so please take extra care of yourself because I won’t be able to order a replacement if you break.
  2. You know you’re getting old if you think that Spotify is some sort of acne cream, streaming is a fun water-based activity and gas-lighting is what you do to ignite a lantern. On that note, happy 50th birthday to my ancient mother.
  3. Dear mother, congratulations on turning half a century old. Just so you’re aware, the museum just announced that they are missing one of their most prized ancient artifacts. Did you forget to tell them you’re taking leave for your 50th birthday? 
  4. Happy birthday Mom and well done on reaching this incredible golden age. You must have seen and experienced so much in your time. Tell me, what was it like growing up in the Stone Age? 
  5. One year closer to free parking, priority seating anywhere you go, and the ability to use “sorry, it must be my age” as a get-out-of-jail-free card in various situations. 
  6. Happy birthday to our lifelong chauffeur, chef, private bank, and household medical specialist. Fifty years of filling so many different roles, we honestly don’t know how you do it all, but hey don’t stop now, who else is going to help us with all the above?

  1. Fifty years and still going strong with no sign of stopping! For many, reaching this golden age marks the beginning of their “winding down” period, when they start to put their feet up a little more often and cut back on physical activity. For you, however, we know this special day serves as an invitation to new beginnings and more exciting adventures. Enjoy this wonderful birthday celebration and keep living life to the fullest mom.
  2. Sending love-filled birthday wishes to our perfect mother, the greatest role model whom we are lucky to have in our lives. We appreciate all the amazing things you’ve taught us and the endless love you have filled our world with. You’ve always been our greatest protector and our biggest supporter and we’re overjoyed to celebrate this wonderful day with you.
  3. Happy 50th birthday to the wonderful woman I call Mom. Let’s toast to another successful and healthy year, the best gift anyone could ask for. Keep strong, healthy, and happy in mind, body, and spirit as you have done for the past 4 decades. You seem to be doing a smashing job!
  4. Wishing the happiest 50th birthday to our favorite person, our dearest mom. We’re eternally grateful to have such a marvelous role model who has taught us countless life lessons and how to take on the whole world and everything it throws at us. You always know exactly the right words to say when giving us advice and we’re unbelievably lucky to have you as the stunning centerpiece of our lovely family. 
  5. Hope you have a delightful day celebrating this milestone birthday, looking back on all of your extraordinary accomplishments. We wish you nothing but good health, happiness, and more amazing wins in the long life ahead of you. Here’s to fifty years of greatness and many more to come.
  6. Happy 50th birthday to the amazing woman who I call mom. You’ve reached that age where you’re not quite old, but calling yourself young would probably raise a few eyebrows. It’s like a limbo year where you get to decide if you want to start winding down or renew your lease on life and kick your 5th decade off with a load of new adventures. So, what will it be, sitting in an armchair watching sitcoms or a skiing trip in the Alps?

  1. Happy 50th birthday to the coolest Mom on the planet. Turning fifty years old doesn’t make you old, it makes you retro with heaps of life experience. In a gamer’s world, you would be the ultimate boss with max XP. Now, if that’s not something to be proud of, I don’t know what is.
  2. Happy Birthday Mom. Thank you for being such a good mother and helping me in every aspect of my life. It can’t have been easy raising such a cheeky and boisterous boy, but you’ve showered me with endless love and had the patience of a saint when it comes to dealing with my antics. Thanks for never complaining and always being there for me. 
  3. Sending heartfelt wishes to my wonderful mom on her 50th birthday. The bond between a mother and son is something truly special and unique. You know all of my favorite things and how to put a smile on my face like no other. You’re not just my mom, but my lifetime best friend who I can always confide in. Thanks for being my absolute rock and my guiding light.
