Give the Gift of Time Travel- Your Special Day Book from The New York Times Store

Shopping has always been a longstanding personal passion in my life. It is a guilty pleasure to find that one perfect item that brings me joy. My preference is for quality, not quantity. I prefer to have just that one buttery soft, fine leather handbag, as opposed to the clutter of 20 bags overwhelming my closet and my brain. Likewise, as I am often found shopping for gifts for family and friends, I try to envision that gift that will be cherished and appreciated as having great significance. My daughter was ecstatic on her tenth birthday when she finally received the dollhouse she dreamed about forever. My son is still super giddy about (allegedly) having a star named after him and his very own tree (allegedly) planted far off in a rainforest. My husband was actually moved to tears by our personalized family album. I'm good! This most recent gift idea is guaranteed amazement, as I am truly amazed by its value. This is more than simply another item to buy, it is a treasure to behold.

The New York Times Store offers a selection of some of the finest merchandise representative of the eclectic styles of The New York Times readers. Perhaps you're considering a special, personalized item to commemorate an important occasion? Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, retirement or any other very important date, The New York Times offers a personalized faux leather bound Your Special Day book that lets you read the actual newspaper that was published on your selected date. We felt like time travelers, visiting the past as we began to read through the reprinted newspaper pages. It was almost surreal to be able to see the photos and read the headlines, articles, and advertisements from our special day- July 5, 1955. 


In celebration of a 60th birthday which is certainly a special day, we decided to pass on the traditional presents of floral arrangements, candles, picture frames or my personal favorite, a Snuggie. As a lesson to my kids in being more intentional in gifting family members and friends, we decided on a gift that would be both cherished and appreciated.
