Aunts and uncles are like a second set of parents, and there’s something so special about being there to share all the major milestones in your niece’s life. Watching your siblings’ children grow up can be such a rewarding experience, especially because of the unique understanding you have of where they come from. The fact that you grew up with your niece’s parents makes it all the more meaningful to be able to be involved in their childhood.
Perhaps you’re the person your niece goes to for the advice they’re too embarrassed to ask their parents. Or the one that gets to spoil them rotten. Or maybe the one they know that they can turn to when things are tough at home. Either way, no matter what your relationship is with your niece, watching them grow into young women can be an emotional experience, and it can be tricky to get those feelings down on paper.
Whether your niece lives nearby or you’ll be wishing them from afar, we’ve rounded up some of the best happy birthday wishes for nieces to help you get across just how much they mean to you. From funny and quirky, to serious and heartfelt, we’re sure you’ll find something that’ll convey just how much you care.
