What to Say in a Birthday Video

Whether you want the video to be heartwarming or silly, here are some amazing ideas to get your creative side flowing. Don’t worry if it isn’t a perfect recording. Just speak from your heart—the person that watches it will treasure those words forever.

1. Share a memory

Look through some of your old photos for inspiration. Whether the incident happened recently or perhaps, a few years ago, sharing an old memory is always a great way to make the video message special.

If it’s your close friend that you’re sending the video to, try telling a story from your college or school days. Maybe, a vacation or an adventure that you both experienced together. Make it humorous.

Add the photos to your video as an overlay along with the message either written in captions or recorded as an audio clip and playing in the background, just the way you would watch a movie with a flashback scene.

2. Tell a funny story

Whether friends or family, there must surely be some amusing moments where you couldn’t hold back your laughter. It maybe a good idea to recall such incidents, even better if you have a clip or recording of the funny incident.

If possible, try getting together with a few of your other friends who were a part of this funny incident to record a nice group birthday video message.

3. Surprise birthday party reveal

This idea is a surefire hit if your birthday party guests can manage to be quiet. Record a video with yourself standing inside the party room.

Start with a birthday message and then show a pre-recorded video of the guests revealing from their hiding locations. Finally, just say, look behind you. This might give them a mini heart attack but memorable and surprising definitely.

4. Collage photos and clips for milestone birthdays

A milestone birthday needs a special touch. If you’re making a sentimental birthday video, then try digging deeper into your photo gallery or archives. Make a memorable birthday video slideshow with pictures spanning all their years until now.

Make sure to go chronologically or by theme. Add in messages and short heartwarming notes at intervals of the video. Think of witty captions and, of course, don’t forget to throw in a killer music track. Go a step beyond by adding movement or transition effects to turn your static pictures into instant videos.

5. Recreate the day you met

If the birthday video is for a partner or someone special, think of all the fantastic moments in your relationship. Rustle up some good pictures and clips to match. If they have a sense of humor, include some embarrassing throwbacks too.

Perhaps, your first high school dance or the day you two met? Or the first time they were drunk? Add some animated text captions with a quirky soundtrack in the background

6. Highlight the year’s funny and important events

One of the best ways to create a memorable birthday video is to turn it into a highlight reel featuring the person’s perfect moments in the past year.

Show their favorite video clips and photos of fun outings, important events, or any memory that will make them live those good moments once again. Show them that they have had an amazing year.

Tips to Make a Memorable Birthday Video

To make sure that your funny happy birthday video is picture perfect and turns out exactly the way you had imagined, here are some tips to help:

Remember to keep things light hearted and funny. Turn your usual photos into something hilarious by adding funny captions, stickers, funny music, and animations. Use the concept of ‘memejacking’ (or hijacking) some famous memes to relate to a specific situation. Add timely captions to nail the video and make the person feel special and loved. Tell a story that they’ll be able to cherish for years to come.

A personalized birthday video can make the special day of someone joyous. Now that you know how to make a birthday video, dive right in. Start making a personal birthday video and one-of-a-kind gift in minutes.
