Fantastic 60th birthday present

Sheila Eastland Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 7 October

My aunt loved this book for her 90th birthday. A big hit!

Dorset Trustpilot product review 1 star rating 29 August

The personalised inside page consists of a sticker that is not put onto the page straight, the paper quality is poor, and I am not sure that photographs of John Torode with Gregg Wallace, Ricky Tomlinson and other 'celebrities' are iconic. For example pictures for 1995 include a Coronation Street actor and the pop star Prince, when this was the year of the Brixton riots and the year that the first British born person walked in space; surely more iconic and historic images? I think the concept is great, but poorly executed.

I bought the life in pictures book for fathers day and it is perfect. I am so pleased with the purchase and i know it will make him very happy. Definitely recommend and will be using this site more for further gift ideas #happycustomer

Hilbilly Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

This was a lovely idea for a Special Birthday presant. My friend thought it was lovely, as she didn't remember most of what had happened in the last 30 years. Would totally recommend as a Special Birthday gift.

Mayjoy Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

I bought this book for a dear friends 70th Birthday, she loved it as did all her party guests, it was passed around all night!

Kiwifruit66 Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 29 August

Bought this as a present for my Dad's 80th Birthday as I thought it was something a little different so was looking forward to receiving it. I was disappointed however when the book arrived with the personalised section being off centre. No care had been taken in the preparation of the book clearly as it was sent to me regardless. Following an email to the helpful customer services, the situation was rectified by sending me a replacement sticker to put in the book myself. Amazing what a difference a little care & attention to detail makes as the book did look 100% better once the sticker had been changed. Quite expensive for what it is though but hopefully my Dad will be happy with it & enjoy looking back through the years.

Really pleased. Ordered the hardback book with gift box for my daughter to give her teacher for her last day of primary school. It looks really great, I'm sure he will be pleased too!! Thank you very much.

Late Delivery

I would not order anything from this company. I ordered a book almost two weeks ago and it still has not come in. It has been sitting in a holding facility waiting to be picked up by USPS for three days. The book was supposed to be here by June 11. I wanted my son's teacher to sign it before the end of the year and now it is the end of the school year and could not have his teacher sign it.
