Product Description
Key Features: 
  • Available in a standard gift box, a luxury edition and a keepsake box
  • Collates a variety of newspaper clippings from the date of your choice
  • No photocopies or reproductions, this is the real thing!
This is a unique and treasured gift suitable for a landmark event such as a special birthday or wedding anniversary. What was making the news on the actual day of the birth or the wedding? By giving an authentic newspaper from that day, you will be giving the recipient a bit of their life history. Sourced from Historic Newspapers, the world’s largest private archive with a stock of around 7 million genuine, original newspapers, virtually any date is available. Only a major national title from the chosen date will be sent, usually The Times. The precious relic is tissue wrapped for protection before being carefully laid inside your chosen presentation box. A personalised certificate of authenticity with a name, date and occasion is provided with the newspaper. 

Personalisation:
  • 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.
