My stepmom is turning the big 4-0 soon! It would be easy to get her the ‘The Year You Were Born -1970,’ book and have her chuckle at the following:
President: Richard Nixon
Vice President: Spiro Agnew
Life Expectancy: 70.8 years
Cost of a new home: $26,600
Median Household Income: $8,734
Cost of a 1st class stamp: $.06
Cost of a gallon of regular gas: $.36
Yeah she’ll get a kick out of it when she flips through the pages the first time, but then it will just sit on her bookshelf and collect dust for another 40 years!
Searching to find the best birthday gift ideas for Lisa was fun, but I wanted to do a personalized birthday gift and that made it more difficult with all of the personalized gifts available out there. However, fake magazine covers from YourCover personalized magazine covers made my decision easy.
I was able to turn her into a magazine cover star! I even created a back cover with all of statistics of the 1970’s that would appear in the book! This personalized birthday gift will showcase much better on a desk or bookshelf than the book would, in its beautiful acrylic frame.
I think I might just make one for my dad’s birthday ;0)
