Personalised & Despatched within 72 Hours
Product Description
Key Features: 
  • Available in a standard gift box, a luxury edition and a wooden presentation box
  • Collates a variety of newspaper clippings from the date of your choice
  • No photocopies or reproductions, this is the real thing!
Take someone special on a trip down memory lane with a newspaper from a significant date, when it was first printed! There are no 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 newspaper 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. Our gift box options include a personalised Certificate of Authenticity, which features their name and a message of your choice.

  • Add their name, using up to 30 characters, the occasion you're celebrating, using up to 40 characters and a personal message, using up to 70 characters to appear over two lines. 
  • We will personalise the certificate exactly how it is entered so please ensure all spelling and punctuation is correct. 
Choosing Your Newspaper Date:
  • Simply select the date you wish to appear from the calendar icon. 
  • Please be aware that on dates when there was a general strike, one day strike or office strike, many newspapers were not printed and we are unable to source the majority of newspapers for these dates. 
Please Note: 
  • If your date cannot be sourced, you will be contacted. A number of newspaper groups do not print on Good Friday or Christmas Day.
  • Some dates on which special events took place may also incur additional charges (this is because they are much rarer newspapers than other dates), but our team will contact you prior to dispatch to confirm you wish to proceed with the additional cost.
Gift Box Options:
  • We 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 silver embossed with 'A Day to Remember...' on the front cover and is almost twice the size of our standard gift box. 
  • 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 way to display a piece of history and it’s the perfect option if you’re looking to really push the boat out.

Worth every penny
This is a great gift. Very well presented, I'm very impressed with what care has been taken to package this item. Even the cheapest presentation box looks very classy. The certificate inside is lovely and the news paper is wrapped in tissue paper. I know my dad will really appreciate this gift.
