@YiPing,
The first one needs to be changed to something like "I wish you to have a good day". Even with the change is still sounds awkward.

The second is what you should use.

We would say "I hope you have a good day".

@YiPing,
"I wish you to have a good day" is more correct.

No native speakers would say that. Stop giving poor advice.

@contrex,
That's all she bloody does, give piss poor advice. She should not be talking about something she doesn't know the first thing about.
