An Ideal Special Birthday Gift.

I was very pleased with the birthday book I bought for my brother’s 70th birthday. The beautiful leather cover with lettering on the front and the page with my personal message to him made the perfect beginning to a fascinating journey through a lifetime of birthday news, The lovely personalised gif box was a lovely finishing touch to an unusual and excellent present for a landmark birthday. Delivery was in good time for his special day. I know he will be delighted with his present and I would highly recommend this as a special gift.

On the whole i was very pleased with the book. The only disappointing thing was that the embossing on the cover of the name was not covered on some of the letters. It spoilt the look somewhat.
