Personalised Birthday Gifts with Historic Newspapers

Lockdown hasn't been easy for any of us but potentially more so for those with special birthdays during lockdown when celebrating with family and friends hasn't been possible. My auntie turned 80 in April and my dad will be 60 next week and neither of them were able to celebrate sadly. However, a thoughtful and extra special present can be a lovely gesture.

I'm always an advocate for personalised gifts and I've reviewed many on my blog over the years so visit my other gift guides for my ideas! As well as special birthdays, Father's Day is just around the corner in the UK (on the 21st June) so I think now is a great time to look for gift ideas and hopefully today's post will give you an idea of the amazing personalised gifts on offer with Historic Newspapers.
*Historic Newspaper - Birthday Newspaper Book (from £49.99)
Today's post features a very special gift that I think would be ideal for those celebrating an extra special or memorable birthday. I was very happy about reviewing this beautiful birthday newspaper book from Historic Newspapers because my dad turns 60 next week so it will make a fantastic and extra special gift for him on such a milestone birthday. I think personalised gifts are great to give at any occasion and I think the range of personalised gifts including this luxury birthday newspaper book, on Historic Newspapers is fantastic as there's something for everyone including football books, children's books, vintage cookbook newspapers, year books, gift sets and more.

The birthday book I'm reviewing features a luxury A4 sized black leather cover (this option comes with a free embossing which I think makes the book look even more luxurious), inside message and a beautiful gift box (£7.50) that can be used to store the book. The option for personalising and adding extras is available such as the box and various cover options so there's something for multiple budgets.
Within the birthday book, there are newspaper headlines from the birthday year you choose and every birthday after so for my dad the headlines are from there 2nd June 1960 onwards which shows a wide range of news stories with each page. From the title page with describes the book and features your gift message to all of the newspaper headlines pages, the print quality is fantastic and it's interesting to remember the headlines of the past with images, articles and advertisements to look through.

I have reviewed a newspaper gift before of my blog, although it wasn't as luxurious or impressive as this gift idea, but I loved looking through the advertisements of the time as they show the trends and products which are usually quite different to the advertising and products of 2020. The years range from the birthday year to 2019 for the book I was lucky enough to receive and highlight the shocking, important and influential news from that day in time, such as the falklands war, scandals, sporting headlines, celebrity stories and much more.

I couldn't be happier or more impressed with not only the luxurious design and quality of the gift but also the special personalised touches, the presentation and all of the interesting headlines to read through. I know my dad loves personalised gifts and history so this is the ideal gift for him, especially for such a special birthday!
