    GREAT GIFT! - 2/26/2015
    By: from Atlanta, GA

    I bought this for my dad as a 60th birthday present. He absolutely LOVED it!! The book is beautiful and a really nice size (larger than what I was expecting, which was letter sized). Really well made and displays the name of the recipient on the front so it made him feel super special on his big day. Great way to give an interesting, personalized gift that they'll keep forever. I DEFINITELY recommend this product to anyone looking for something interesting to display or give as a gift to someone. 5 STARS!

    We bought this for my wife's grandfather's 89th birthday. It is such a great gift. I am getting ready to purchase this for my grandfather's 90th. In addition to being a great gift, Orvis's customer service was top notch and I would recommend them everyone!

    Great Gift - 12/29/2014
    By: from Winston-Salem, NC

    The book, made up of newspaper headlines of each birthday of the life of a chosen person, is a wonderful gift. It has the headlines from each year on the specific date of birth beginning with the birth year and going through the last birthday. It is such a good historic record for the individual who receives it because that person gets a sampling of the important events for their particular date.

    Great Gift - 12/27/2014
    By: from Florida

    Bought one for each of my parents for Christmas. They are 91 and 90 years old. They spent lots of time looking through their books. I did buy a magnifying glass because some of the print is very small. They were thrilled with the gift and anticipate many hours of pleasure.

    Thoroughly enjoyable - 12/26/2014
    By: from Plano, TX

    We were very pleased when we opened our box from Orvis. It is great fun for all in the family to see what was going on in their dad's/husbands world in that year. Amazing how much of the issues ard the same 40 years later. Thanks for a beautiful book!

    EXCELLENT GIFT - 12/21/2014
    By: from Burlington, ON Canada

    For a worldly person, this is an excellent gift, especially for an older person. Just to go back in time and recognize some of the headlines. However, shipping wasn't easy. This item doesn't ship to Canada. I had to ship it to my cousin in Brooklyn, NY and then have it shipped to me in Burlington, ON.

    Great XMAS gift for mom - 12/3/2014

    My brothers and I thought that this would be a perfect XMAS gift for our elderly mother who still loves to read. After receiving it we all loved it and agreed that we were right! Thank you.

    Wonderful Birthday Gift - 2/19/2014
    By: from Boynton Beach, FL

    I was looking for an unusual Birthday gift for a male friend. When I saw the Headline Birthday Book in your catalog I knew this was what I wanted to get for him. He received it last week and loves it. The quality is outstanding and he liked having his name printed on the cover. It is something he will keep for a long, long time. He is 75 years old today. I loved the richness of your website. The merchandise is most definitely quality and your website shows this. I will recommend your website to my friends. Thank you.
