You'll love this because...

You can give them a nostalgic gift to cherish on their 80th birthday.

  • A unique book with headlines from their Date of Birth, and every birthday thereafter
  • Personalise with the recipient’s Name and add a Message on the title page
  • Option to gold emboss their name on the front cover
  • Tabloid-sized 80th birthday book measures 38 x 31cm
  • Luxury gift box available to complete this perfect gift

Turning 80 is an immense achievement. The birthday boy or girl has had a great innings and they can look back on the top headlines from each of their birthdays in this innings with a special 80th birthday book made from front page newspapers. By simply using their birthdate, the book generates the most intriguing headlines that intertwine with the recipient’s own life.

With so much to read and look back on, all the content is printed on premium quality paper for a lasting finish. Opposite each reprint, there will be a blank page left intentionally for the individual to add their own memories and photos of the year. The book is hardback so all these memories will be suitably protected to cherish forever.

How to Personalise Your 80th Birthday Newspaper Book

To personalise this unique Birthday Edition newspaper book, simply add the recipient’s Name and your personal Message which is then printed on a certificate on the title page of the book. For an extra special touch, gold emboss the recipient’s Name on the front cover.

Further Information

These fantastic personalised books measure an impressive 38 x 31cm, approximately tabloid size and beautifully bound in a choice of hardback covers. Content is taken from the Daily Mirror as it provides the best insight into periods past, though broad journalistic content, photographs (which many other titles 40, 50 years ago lacked), advertisements etc.

Please note: The book will only include this year’s birthday page if it is ordered 30 days after the selected date. There will be occasions (very rarely) when a front page for your exact date isn’t available. For example: No newspapers are printed on Christmas Day, Good Friday and during strikes, in which case a front page from the day after will be used.

When entering your personalisation, please note that accents, emojis and other symbols can’t be used as our system doesn’t support these. Make sure to double check your spelling!

🌲 Our books are made from responsibly sourced paper from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper manufacturers. 🌎

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry. Would not recommend to anyone. Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better. Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet. If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night. I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order. Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories. If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer. In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

A great cover and fronts piece.

A great cover and fronts piece. However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.

The child's name only appears on the opening page of each story. Other companies replace the name of the character in the story with the child's name. The format and quality of the book prints and presentation are good.

Very disappointed in this book for so much money - unfortunately I believed my granddaughter would appear in the story not just at the top of the pages - feel as if I’ve been conned!
