Personalised 40th Birthday Newspapers

Turning 40 isn’t what it used to be. 40 is not considered old and rightly so. It’s a milestone to celebrate great life experiences and look back on the moments that made their life worth living. What better gift to start off their forties than a 40th birthday newspaper? Not only can the birthday boy or girl reflect on how far they’ve come, they’ll rekindle their favourite memories from the past.

Sure, the individual might feel like the last 40 years has flown by, but a birthday newspaper will help them realise their own worth. By choosing a newspaper from the day they were born, you’ll open up a window of nostalgia, and with it, an abundance of memories. A single headline, advert or photograph could bring back treasured memories from their childhood, or any special moment from their life.

A 40th Birthday Keepsake Like No Other

Including popular newspaper titles such as The Times, The Guardian, Evening Standard, Financial Times, Illustrated London News and much more, you get to choose the headline of your 40th birthday keepsake. The newspaper you select will be accompanied by a personalised certificate of authenticity guaranteeing the age of the paper itself, and will also validated by one of our archivists.

Or, for a gift designed around their tastes, why not try a newspaper book? From historical periods like WWI, WWII and the D-Day Landings, to historical icons like David Bowie, Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana, you’ll find something to spark their interest. The books themselves are bound in leather or leatherette and feature the recipient’s name embossed on the cover. Whatever you choose, be inspired to make their 40th birthday a sensation, because it’s the start of the rest of their life.
