A best friend is one of life’s greatest gifts. Whether you met as kids, in college or somewhere in between, they're the person who gets you. You can always count on them to laugh at your corny jokes when no one else does. Not only do they laugh at your stories, but you also share countless inside jokes of your own. They are the person who you can depend on no matter what.

So, when it comes to their birthday, you want to show your gratitude and appreciation with heartfelt birthday wishes and messages. Sure, unique birthday gifts for her, a weekend girls’ getaway or even a fun dinner party with more friends are great — showering them with love in the form of words is a nice addition to commemorate their special day. In the age of social media, that means celebrating your friendship with birthday wishes, messages and quotes that you can share on Instagram. These public displays of adoration will not only let them know how much they mean to you, but will let everyone in your online orbit know too. If you want to take a more personal approach, opt for writing these kind words inside a birthday card and share them privately.

Stumped on what to say? Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered. From short and simple to funny and meaningful, this collection of birthday wishes has something that will speak to your unique bond with your bestie.
