Personalised 50th Birthday Newspapers

Finding the right gift for any occasion is challenging at the best of times, especially when marking such an important milestone. The charm of a personalised 50th birthday newspaper is down to one single detail; the recipient’s date of birth becomes the focal point of the gift, bringing with it a rare glimpse into the past.

Have you ever wondered what happened just 50 years ago when you were born? Which famous icon do I share a birthday with? What significant event made the headline on my birth date? The questions are as limitless as the newspaper dates available to answer them. Offering regional, national and even discontinued newspaper titles, your gift is tailored from the offset.

50th Birthday Newspapers as Gifts

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 50th birthday keepsake. The newspaper you select will be accompanied by a personalised certificate of authenticity guaranteeing the age of the paper itself, validated by one of our archivists.

Since our archives span as far back as the 1900s, the newspapers are protected under the necessary conditions to preserve the content, from the warehouse straight to your door. To add even more value to your 50th birthday present you can present the newspaper in a variety of keepsake cases and gift packs too, to give them a memento like no other.
