Our Original Newspaper for Any Date  is a unique and personal gift that's guaranteed to make their 40th birthday. Choose between the Newspaper only or one of our gift box options that will also include a personalised Certificate of Authenticity that includes the recipient's name and a message of your choice.

There's no better way to own a piece of history than with a newspaper from the actual date it was printed. There are no cheap photocopies or reproductions, only the real thing taken straight from the archives complete with the distinctive smell and unmistakable feel of an old newspaper.

Wherever possible the newspaper you receive will be The Times.  When The Times is not available another national paper will be selected. For dates before 1966 the front page of the Times Newspaper had no headline or pictures as it consisted of notices and advertisements.  Please note: The 'Newspaper Only' option does not include a certificate of authenticity.

We also have a choice of presentation boxes to help complete your gift. Our red Standard Gift Box comes printed with 'A Day to Remember' in elegant silver foil. The newspaper itself is delicately wrapped in tissue and carefully packed with the Certificate of Authenticity.

The dark green Premium Gift Box is gold embossed with 'A Day to Remember' on the front cover and is almost twice the size of our standard gift box. It’s the perfect option if you’re looking to really splash out.

Or pull out all the stops with the elegantly hand-made Wooden Presentation Box. Lined with lavish red felt, the box features two brass hinges and a locking catch that ensures the Original Newspaper will always be safe. There’s no better to display a piece of history.

Amazing piece of history
A beautifully presented gift. The newspaper was a complete original along with stamps of where it came from. Bought this as a Ruby wedding gift for my parents who are huge newspaper readers and quilt historians. Would highly recommend such a unique gift.

What to buy for.....
Fascinating and interesting present to buy for my 81 year old Dad who reckoned it was like reading something from pre-historic times. Loved it.
