These Birthday Wishes Make the Perfect IG Post for Your Boyfriend’s Bday, Just Sayin’ (2024)

And the best girlfriend award goes to...

By Chaise Sanders

He's your best friend, confidant, partner in crime, and you two happen to be totally head over heels for each other (happy for y'all, really!). While showering him with kisses and doing your best to ignore his inevitable icks is great and all, your boyfriend's birthday only comes once a year, so don't hesitate to spoil him a little bit (even if he objects to the extra attention).

Of course, you've probably already taken the time to choose a gift that'll knock his socks off (and if you haven't yet, we got you covered with some last-minute gifts, bb), but nothing says "Happy Birthday, babe" quite like an Instagram tribute post...literally. Whether you want to get mushy and romantic, comedic, or make one hell of a hard launch on your grid, a post on social media is our generation's true love language.

As I'm sure you're super busy figuring out how to fit all your love for him into his big day, I went ahead and put together some Instagram captions (or birthday wishes to write in a card, if you're that type of person) below. No matter what type of sentiment you're going for, we've got sweet messages that are short, romantic, and funny, and I even threw in some song lyrics for my fellow music lovers. Also, with some slight tweaks, you can def use some of these to wish him happy birthday once he's your hubby. What? Too soon?
