Each newspaper book looks back on one special day, throughout history, featuring headlines from every year on your special date. The retirement newspaper book is designed to portray the recipient’s life through newspaper headlines of the day. Every successful career deserves to be celebrated with a little luxury. A unique, personalised gift that helps you celebrate the memories of retirement.
Simply choose the perfect date to look back on and the Daily Mirror will do the rest. This personalised book is a fantastic way to create a lasting memory for the guest of honour. Not only that, but it is also a superb gift for family and close friends who will get a chance to look back on days gone by through the Daily Mirror newspaper archive.
If for example, your chosen date was 23rd August 1965, this will be the first front page to appear. After that, it’ll be 23rd August 1966, then ‘67, ‘68 and so on, all the way through until the present day, making this retirement newspaper book a story of the individual’s entire life.
The thickness of the retirement book will also depend greatly on the age of the recipient, or date chosen, so we especially include ‘remember when’ pages. Opposite each front page reprint is a ‘remember when’ page for the recipient to add photos and messages relating to that specific year. You can even choose to have the recipient’s Name and Date of Birth embossed in foil on the cover of the hand-bound book.
How is your Retirement newspaper book personalised?
- Name: 25-character limit (appears on the front cover)
- Gift Box: Optional (please see image for example of gift box available)
The opening page includes a space for you to write a handwritten personal message. If you are ordering this as a gift, we recommend getting the book delivered to your home address if you would like to complete it with a personalised message. Only enter the name you wish to be printed on the book. When entering your personalisation, please note that accents, emojis and other symbols can’t be used as our system doesn’t support these. Make sure to double-check your spelling.

The Daily Mirror is Britain’s best-selling post-war newspaper up to the 1970s since it was established in 1903. Through broad journalistic content, including photographs (something many competing titles didn’t utilise), advertisements etc. The Daily Mirror provides superior insight into the past.
Please note: The Mirror was on strike from 26th March 1955 through to 20th April 1955. Should your chosen birth date fall within the strike period, we’ll insert a page into your Retirement Edition Newspaper Book explaining that there were no papers available on that date.
Please note: The occasion newspaper book will only include newspapers up to 2022. There will be occasions (very rarely) when a front page for your exact date isn’t available. For example, no newspapers are printed on Christmas Day, Good Friday and during strikes, in which case a front page from the day after will be used.
