Hooray! It’s someone’s birthday! On their special day, add special birthday card wishes that perfectly represent what you want to say. 

Don’t settle for the regular no-brainer card greetings. Instead, bring your greeting card to life using your creativity and effort.

Introducing, a video greeting card—a greeting card that lets you add not only personalized wishes but also videos from you or your friends.

Instead of the usual “Happy Birthday,” here are 51+ wishes along with video greeting ideas for your loved one’s special day.

There’s a video greeting card for everyone

A video greeting card is like a blank card that you can use to bring your ideas to life. 

Unlike commercial cards, your personalized video message cards show that you’ve actually put your mind and effort into creating them. Using videos, you can directly say what you want to say and how you want to say it.

Make your loved ones see, hear, and feel your appreciation on their special day by writing personal birthday wishes and making cool and unique video greetings for your card.

5 easy-to-make video greeting ideas

Looking for inspiration? Here are 5 video greetings that you can do to make your birthday greeting cards more interesting:

  1. Create a video greeting compilation messages from you and the celebrant’s friends. 
  2. Thrill the celebrant with a gift guessing game using sneak peek clips showing the details of the birthday gift that you got for them.
  3. Record a video of yourself singing the happy birthday song or the celebrant’s favorite song to show off your amazing singing voice.
  4. Flatter a special someone by adding clips of what you like about them from people they’re close with.
  5. Send a heartwarming appreciation tribute montage of the birthday celebrant using clips from the special moments of their life.
