Remember how you were fond of your uncles and aunts while growing up? You always wished that they could drop by the house every weekend so you would have a fun family time together. You probably even got into arguments with your parents when they couldn’t allow you to visit your aunts and uncles as often as you wanted.
Well, there comes a time when these roles are reversed, such that you’re now the cool uncle or aunt every nephew and niece wants to associate with. And if you have siblings (whether blood siblings, stepsiblings, or in-laws), it’s not a question of if but when you’ll have someone calling you an uncle or aunt.
Your nephews may not be your real sons. But they can be just as close. If you’re not already blessed with a son of your own, your nephew can actually double up as your real son.
It doesn’t matter whether they’re younger or older than you. The bond between an uncle or aunt and their nephew is simply unbreakable.
So, if your nephew’s birthday is coming up, the least you can do is extend them a kind gesture by sending them warm happy birthday wishes. And since you want to be the coolest uncle or aunt ever, you’d want to go all the way in searching for befitting nephew birthday messages.
Fortunately for you, we’ve rounded up sixty most thoughtful ways to say happy birthday to your nephew.
