1940s Original Newspaper Gift

1949 Gifts


Make an occasion worth celebrating with a gift from 1949

In 1949, the world witnessed some of the most important events in history. The Fourth Geneva Convention was declared and George Orwell’s book, Nineteen Eighty-Four was released. For some, this year marks important birthdays of friends and family. If so, then our 1949 birthday gifts will become nostalgic keepsakes to celebrate this important year. You could pick a 1949 newspaper from the world’s largest newspaper archive or a local history book to reconnect the recipient with memories from their birth place, all tied to this special year.

By perusing our personalised birthday and year edition books, and our wonderful original print newspapers, you can feel closer than ever to the year that brought about NATO, the Republic of Ireland, and the implementation of South African apartheid, encapsulated in our collection of 1949 birthday ideas.
