Packed with headlines from the date of the recipient’s birth and every birthday thereafter

  • A unique birthday book personalised with any name and message
  • Gold emboss any name on the front-cover
  • Bound in high quality, handmade covers
  • Complete this gift with a luxury gift box
  • Features full front page newspaper reprint from a chosen date

A personalised birthday newspaper book is the perfect gift for those with a passion for history or journalism. This book provides a fascinating insight into how things were reported in the British press on your chosen date. Professionally bound in one-off leather and leatherette covers, this book features a front-page reprint from the day of the recipient’s birth and then every birthday thereafter. So, if the recipient was born on 10th October 1963, this will be the first page to appear. Following that, it will be 10th October 1964, then ‘65, and onwards to the present day.

The reprints themselves are printed on durable, quality paper. The recipient can use a blank page between each reprint to collate their own memories from that year, making this a truly meaningful present. The newspaper book is available in two finishes, whichever style you choose, you can gold emboss the front cover.

How to Personalise the Birthday Newspaper Book

Personalise this newspaper birthday book with any date and any name on its cover. Add a special presentation message in the book’s opening pages for added charm. Please note: if you choose to emboss the front cover with the recipient’s name, the date of birth will be printed as standard.

Further Information

The paper provides unrivalled insight into days gone by, through broad journalistic content, photographs and also advertisements. This content is the best way to gain true historical insight into the past.

SJHR Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

I ordered this as a present for my uncle in America for his 60th birthday. He absolutely loved it. I was very impressed with just how quickly it was made up & dispatched direct to the USA. We were sent via email full tracking details and updates from FedEx and the pod, once delivered. I couldn't have asked for a better service.

joanne Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

It was my grandfathers 90th birthday and I was looking for a unique and good quality gift that would be of interest to him. His wardrobe is full of new clothes bought for special occasions, and he has enough chocolates and spirits to open his own shop. Anyway, these type of things just weren't special enough. I found this company who I purchased the best ever gift from. The front page of the newspaper on the day he was born and every birthday thereafter. It was delivered quick and I'd had his name embossed on the front. The quality was exceptional and the pages inside where presented beautifully. Needless to say he was thrilled with it, and so was the rest of the family who took great delight at having a look at our history through the times.This has to be the best thing I have bought, I will definately buy from you again for yet another unique, quality gift. Thankyou so much, I am thrilled ! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

foxyj Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

I am very pleased with the gift. I haven't given it to my partner yet, as his birthday is 9th February, but I know he will be delighted. It is the second time I have received something from this site, and the first gift was also superb. Thankyou ever so much for coming up with such uniquely different gift ideas.

Oddjob Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

This was bought as a 90th Birthday present for my father, he was thrilled with it and had never seen anything quite like it. There was however a printing mistake made over the dates. This was very quickly resolved with a corrected product being received within 3 days. Excellent service I will buy from here again.

Eveie Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 29 August

I was very happy with my recent purchase for my fathers 90 birthday of athe newspaper headlines for the year he was born. It was very well presented and layed out. The only fault i would have however is that because i was ordering it from Ireland we all thought that the newspaper would have been the irish mirror as this would have been more significiant to him. But that was not the case and it was the english news that he received.None the less he was pleased with it and spend considerable time going through it.

dunc Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

This is the 2nd book I have purchased. First for the father in laws 70th bithday, second for a Christmas present for my father who is 84. Both fathers were amazed by the information in the books which brought back a lot of memories especially from the war years. Would definately recommend.

Amazing Spider-Man deluxe book

Amazing Spider-Man deluxe book. My grandson is going to love it. His photo looks great on the book. Thankyou.

Roger Bird Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 20 August

Book well presented

Book well presented, but would have been better if personalised first page had name and greeting on the page instead of a stick on label. Paper used was of average weight and quality. Fast delivery though.

David Thomas Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 20 August

Funny book, but not full size!

Funny book, looks just like a Haynes manual BUT it is probably half the size so bear that in mind. I had the box just to make it a bit more special.

Charlotte R Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 20 August

Customer service was excellent and friendly

Customer service was excellent, I received a quick friendly response to my query as I was worried that I would not receive the delivery in time for my friends baby shower, so they upgraded my delivery to priority. I received the book on time and my friends daughter loved her 'Big Sisters are Great' personalised book, she loved finding her name on the pages!

Rebecca Denham Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 19 August

The book is amazing and worth every…

The book is amazing and worth every penny spent. The fact that it’s personalised to the person it’s for, is a bonus. And makes this book so unique. Can’t wait for my little cousin to receive it. I know she will love the stories in it as much as I did when I was younger.

    Thank you for your review,

    We are sorry to hear that the team were unable to catch the amendment.

    The email was picked up first thing on the Monday Morning however sadly the order had already been printed as the production team can run up to 24 hours a day therefore we do request that all personalisation is checked within the basket stage and before check out as we can not guarantee that orders can be amended but will always try our best.

    The customer service advisor did sent their apologies for this and offered a discount if a new order needed to placed. Please let us know if we can do anything further and we are happy to help.

    Once again we are sorry that we were unable to make the correction in time.

    Kind Regards,
