These gift-wrapped bespoke made-to-order newspapers make wonderfully personal gifts for those special people celebrating a milestone birthday or wedding anniversary.

What do you get the person who has everything, or even worse doesn’t want anything?!?

Maybe your Dad is approaching the ripe old age of 80, or your mum is advancing stoically towards 90. When asked what they’d like present-wise to mark this milestone, they just reply, ‘oh don’t get me anything, I don’t need anything.’

It could be your parents golden wedding anniversary and you're stuck for a gift that befits the occasion.

These truly unique papers chronicle and celebrate their amazing lives. Tailormade from scratch so their look and tone are completely suited to the recipient.

All in all a special way to say happy birthday and to show someone just how much they mean to you all.

- Bespoke cover and title, inspired by the recipient, favourite photo and text of your choice.

- 'Did you know...' A special fact about the recipient highlighted on each page.
