What is the difference between this two prepositional phrase? And how can we use this? Like

  1. Best wishes for you.
  2. Best wishes to you.

What is the difference in meaning for both of these sentences?


1 Answer 1


Best wishes for you

Means I have best wishes (in my heart / in my soul exc.. ) for you.

Best wishes to you

Means that I am sending (to) you my best wishes

The most common form is the second one and to be honest, I don't think the first form is used much by Native speakers

    We send good wishes for an event in someone's life. "Best wishes for your birthday next week" or, if they are ill, "Best wishes for a speedy recovery." May 4, 2021 at 8:14
