You Are Solid Gold With These Golden Birthday Instagram Captions

Officially entering The Golden Age.

There are few things that thrill me more than celebrating someone’s birthday, but a golden birthday is just that extra dollop of magic. A golden birthday is defined as the birthday where your age matches the date of your birthday, so if your birthday is January 27, your golden birthday is the year you turn 27. It’s like a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, and having the perfect golden birthday Instagram captions for you or someone you love is a must.

My own three daughters all have pretty epic birthdays. My oldest’s golden birthday will be when she’s 16, my middle daughter’s will be when turns 10, and my baby’s 21st birthday will be her golden birthday. I mean, those are pretty great milestone birthdays, you know? But even if it’s a 3rd or a 12th or a 27th, the point of a golden birthday is that it makes what is already pretty special — celebrating someone you love, including yourself! — a little bit extra. So gather up your gold glitter for an Instagram photoshoot, and use one of these golden birthday Instagram captions to commemorate.
