The Birthday Chronicle Review

Saturday, April 21, 2012 Posted by Dina N

When my kids were born, I asked friends and family to save that day's paper for us. I wanted to have a memento of what was going on in the world. That idea is more or less represented in concise form by The Birthday Chronicle. It's a one-page summary of any date between January 1, 1900  up to December 31, 2011.

This personalized mini-newspaper includes a greeting, by name, from the then-President of the United States, plus newspaper headlines and stories from that year. I ordered one for my daughter, and was reminded who won the World Series back then, which celebrities share her birthday, and which movie grabbed  the Oscar. There was also a paragraph about music hits of that year, what Congress was debating, and a few bullet points of world events.

I plan to have The Birthday Chronicle framed and give it to my daughter to hang in her room. This one-page summary makes a great gift, stocking stuffer, or conversation piece.

The company that sent me the Birthday Chronicle offers other Personalized Gifts for Anyone, Anytime, as well. The prices are very affordable, and you get the gift via email to print out. They offer free items often and you can connect with them via Facebook, Twitter (@BecauseItriedit), and Google +. You can also subscribe to their newsletter to get updates on current promotions.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    That's a great idea! I've given cards that list what happened in the year of birth but this is even more personal.

    This is a great idea for a gift that will be cherished later when they are older :) Like how our generation knows what a casette tape and floppy disk are ;)

    I also love this idea. I did save my childrens newspaper the day they were born and I try to save papers from important events. This would be a great gift for anyone!

    Cute idea. It is a nice update of the replica front page of day you were born newspapers used to sell for birthday gifts.
