anniversary gift easy site to use, found what I wanted really quickly, it arrived promptly and the packaging very strong 10 June 2015
Recent Gift Purchase Excellent gift! We weren't expecting it to be as authentic so we were very impressed. The only problem was with the certificate. It didn't have the whole of our text on it, however, with one email to the company it was rectified, sent out first class and arrived the next day....excellent service. We ordered a Daily Telegraph from 1990 for the parents 25 wedding anniversary. we will be getting another one for my partners parents 40th wedding in a weeks time. we would definitely recommend buying. 10 June 2015
I was a little surprised at the size (no of pages) of the 1945 Times. I't looked like a 6 page section taken from the middle. No big headline or picture on the front page. This could be due to my ignorance about how papers were at the time. I haven't given it to my mum yet. I hope she finds it interesting. Nicely presented, thank you 04 June 2015
Birthday Present Purchased two historic newspapers recently and on both occasions they arrived promptly and well packaged. I would highly recommend this website to others. 03 June 2015

Original Gift Newspapers

We offer original newspapers from the date of your choice, an ideal gift for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. Our archive of gift newspapers are genuine, old newspapers – not copies. We certify each original gift newspaper as authentic.

Personalised Newspaper Gifts

All of our newspaper gifts come with a personalised Certificate of Authenticity. These certificates can be personalised with the name of the recipient, the occasion being celebrated, as well as a personal message. Personalising the Certificate enhances the very special appeal of this personalised newspaper gift. You will be able to personalise your certificate during the order process, when buying your Anniversary or Birthday Newspaper, and can preview the certificate to ensure that you are completely happy with it, before you purchase your personalised newspaper gift.

Old Newspapers

Our newspaper collection is very old, and some are very rare. We even have an old newspaper from 1801. Although we have newspapers for most dates going back over 200 years, most of the old newspapers we sell are from the last 100 years, because they are bought as a gift newspaper for someone’s birthdate or anniversary. In 2006 we did supply an old commemorative newspaper to celebrate someone’s 110th birthday!

Newspaper Archive

We have now assembled a collection of over 7 million archive gift newspapers, which are stored in our newspaper archive near Wigtown, in south-west Scotland. These old archive newspapers have been purchased over the years from libraries, goverrnment departments and universities, who have traditionally kept an archive of historic newspapers, but no longer had the space to do so. Rather than see these old newspapers destroyed, they were collected into an archive of gift newspapers to be sold as birthdate newspapers, or to celebrate an anniversary. Our newspaper archive in Scotland is perfect environment to preserve an old newspaper, because archive newspapers need to be stored in dark damp environments. An old newspaper need to retain moisture, to avoid it drying out and becoming brittle. Our coastal location near Wigtown, is perfect to store our historic newspaper archive because of the dampness in the atmosphere.

Birthday and Anniversary Gift Newspapers

A Birthday Newspaper or Anniversary Newspaper makes a very special gift because it can have real personal resonance with the recipient, as it will be from the actual date they were born or married. This gives the gift a special meaning to the recipient, as it will bring back memories from their wedding day or give an insight as to what was happening in the world on the day they were born. This can make a birthday newspaper a very rewarding personal gift offering.

Many of our birth date newspapers are bought for ‘special’ birthdays, like a 40th, 50th or 60th birthday, as our old historic newspapers are seen as a very meaningful birthday gift.

Our Anniversary Newspapers also make popular anniversary gifts, and are particularly sought after for Silver, Ruby and Golden wedding anniversaries. Anniversary Newspapers are also bought for a ‘first anniversary’, which is the Paper Anniversary. We offer a special Anniversary Newspaper Presentation Folder, which contains an original old newspaper from a couple’s wedding date, as well as a newspaper from each partner’s birthdate.
