Brilliant idea for special birthdays.

Absolutely spot on well impressed came in a lovely green presentation box to protect the newspaper which I specified & also came with a certificate of authenticity which can have a personal message added to it. Historic newspapers are in my opinion very reasonably priced compared to other similar online sellers, would definitely recommend. 👍🏻

Paper and Prosecco

The paper and prosecco was well received however, did not identify the sender. There was an option for a gift tag which I felt was quite overpriced, considering the price you pay and am sure most items are gifts would be a nice touch to include it in the price.
