Who doesn't enjoy a birthday celebration for a friend? Along with getting to eat cake, you get to show your special someone a ton of love and affection. Win-win. Of course, it's your responsibility as the friend to post an Instagram tribute where you both look nice and think of the ideal caption to honor their big day.
If you're at a loss for words, we've compiled a list of special buddy birthday quotes and caption suggestions to get you going. These all also function as birthday wishes to write in their card if you don't particularly like posting on social media. Say how much your friend means to you. These birthday wishes will no doubt be appreciated by them!
Every year on your birthday, I get reminded of how much you mean to me as a best friend.

Happy birthday to you! Here’s to another year of lasting joy and incredible friends. Thanks for being awesome!

I am proud of how amazing a person you are and very proud of our friendship! I hope you know how much you mean to me. Happy Birthday my friend!
My dear friend, may your special day be full of beautiful, magical, and unforgettable moments.
Why do we struggle to express our affection for our dearest friends on their birthdays when we tell them all the time? Perhaps the stress of the special day or the act of putting our sentiments in writing is to blame.
You might also need some assistance when it comes to writing a birthday card because you're too busy organizing their birthday party or coming up with a terrific present idea.
Whatever the problem, if you're stuck, we have some succinct birthday wishes for friends to help relieve your stress.
Happy birthday my dear friend! I don’t have much to say, but I will always cherish the experiences we have had together. The days spent with you were the most amazing days of my life.
Every step of the way you were there for me. Through thick and thin I’ll always be there for you. Happy birthday, wishes!
Birthdays come once a year, but best friends are once in a lifetime. I'm so happy to call you mine! I hope your birthday is chill and peaceful, just like you.
Happy birthday to my best friend, the one who laughs at my silly jokes and still stands beside me even when I do dumb and stupid things!
Thinking of you and the good times we spent makes me smile! Happy birthday to a friend who is always close to my heart.
Today, I have the pleasure of wishing a super happy birthday to my favorite human! Our bond is as solid as a rock and as sweet as your birthday cake is hopefully going to be!
Happy birthday to one of the few people whose birthday I can remember without a Facebook reminder.
You may be aging but never expire. Best wishes to my dear friend.
The only gift I have for you is my continued friendship. I went searching for the perfect gift to give you, but you are such a perfect friend that nothing seemed good enough. It has nothing to do with me being cheap!
We get the opportunity to adore our loved ones and friends and take some time to consider the value they add once a year.
We hope you found a good a birthday message here that will perfectly express your special relationship, whether you're adding a sentimental card to their gift, looking for an Instagram comment to go with the hilarious friend joke you're sharing in their honor, or just need something to text them.
See you on the next post!
