Unique and personalised gifts from Historic Newspapers
15th June 2020
I love finding unusual gifts. My husband is a history buff so it’s great to find presents that reflect this, but aren’t atypical. He has already read a lot of history books which makes it hard to choose any new ones.
So it seemed perfect when I found out about Historic Newspapers. They sell personalised newspaper gifts from the world’s largest archive. You can choose individual, dated newspapers or personalised, collated books.
I chose a World War II book for my husband as his Father’s Day present. The WWII book brings together news stories reported at the time by the Daily Mirror. It also features rare photos of the Second World War from 1939 to 1945. I love how classy the book looks; you can even gold emboss the recipient’s name on the front cover.
While I was ordering I also selected a birthday book ahead of his big day in a few months. The birthday book is particularly special. It celebrates the recipient’s day they were born by curating front page newspaper reprints from their date of birth.
It starts on the day they were born and goes up to the present day. Again you can emboss their name on the front. There is the option to have a personalised message inside too.
Historic Newspapers sell a wide selection of other gifts. There sports books, celebrating either a specified sport or even a chosen team, are understandably popular. You can also buy full copies of archived newspapers for a given day. And fun options such as vintage cookbooks mean there is something for everyone.
Gifts start at around £15. For personalised presents I think this is a decent price. There are plenty of options across all budgets and you can skip the added extras if you want to keep costs down.
