Is anyone else scratching their head wondering how we got to February? I’m still putting away my holiday decorations! Yes. I procrastinate like that- especially when I’m trying to avoid reality. Hey, who doesn’t need a little distraction every so often? (Ok, maybe I need it every day but that’s for another time).

So February is a busy month. We’ve got Lincoln’s Birthday coming up on the 12th, followed by Valentine’s Day on the 14th, and then Presidents Day and Washington’s Birthday on the 20th. That’s a lot of parties right there. Sounds like some perfect distractions…definitely my kind of month!

We all know how to celebrate birthdays- I don’t think you need me for that. But when it comes to presidential birthdays- that’s a whole different kind of party. These birthdays give us the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our presidents, to learn some history and get in to the patriotic spirit! What’s more, at, we have a wide selection of products and gifts which are educational, historic and fun, to get you in the mood of the day. Now’s the perfect time to get to know our presidents a little more intimately with the Presidential Facts Historic Reprint or browse our War/Politics/Culture category for many more gifts and keepsakes for yourself or another history buff in your life!

Valentine’s Day is of course a terrific opportunity to gift the special person in your life. Now I’m not going to lie- I do love flowers; but there’s no denying that an original newspaper is a unique and personalized gift on a whole different level. The Anniversary Newspaper Set is the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day (yes, it goes well with flowers). You can also visit our site to choose from other personalized gifts, for the perfect match for your significant other.

At we love to help you celebrate all your special days. February is the perfect time to honor our roots, our history, our country and our families.

So, let’s get the party started!

Welcome Back, Rocktober!

It comes every year to usher in the Fall.  At long last, Rocktober is BACK!  Who's psyched about that? Well, me for one. The fact is it's always fun to have a reason to celebrate. After enjoying a long summer, we are treated to Labor Day in early September.  November has Thanksgiving and December and January...well, holidays [...]

“What were you doing when the first tower was hit?” A question you have likely been asked before or have inquired of someone else. I distinctly remember the chaos and confusion right when the news came in. Nobody was sure what to make of it and details were unclear- but soon enough, the painful reality [...]

Summer's Kid Conundrum

Still a kid at heart, I very much look forward to the summer all year long. I like the heat, and the absence of coldness, of which I am not very fond. But when the summer months actually roll around, my wife and I oftentimes find ourselves a bit overwhelmed with the sheer amount of [...]

This pivotal day in history is recognized as the beginning of the end of the war in Europe when brave young men risked their lives to achieve freedom and victory. In the months and weeks leading up to D-Day, the Allied forces carried out [...]

I love spring. Who doesn’t? The flowers are blossoming, the sun is shining, the weather is just right and we can finally put away our coats and gloves. What is it about the hum of a lawnmower that somehow motivates everyone to get active and be productive after hibernating all winter long? I have no idea, but I do know [...]

On most days, I find myself looking for sugar more often than I’d like to admit (every 10 minutes on average). Sometimes I justify those cravings with a cucumber or a cup of orange juice (by cucumber I mean tiny pickle, and by cup I mean a shot glass). Sometimes I don’t even bother myself with that arrangement. I’m [...]

Sometimes customers ask me for suggestions about what to write in a personal message for their gift recipient. My ‘go to’ wish is usually along the lines of ‘many more happy and healthy years’, because you can never go wrong with that. But does that make sense for someone who is turning 100 years old? [...]

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, chances are you were wearing a coat, hat and gloves if you went outside today. If you are enjoying the heated indoors at present, that's great! But you have to admit it’s a little chilly, right? I don’t mean to tease, but the residents of the Southern Hemisphere, including [...]
