I bloody love Bowie, when I was little my all time favourite song was Oh! You Pretty Things (in fact I think it still might be) and it's probably because I grew up listening to him as my mum's a massive fan. So when I Just Love It offered me the chance to review one of their lovely products the David Bowie Newspaper Book was a no-brainer!

The book is a mix of gorgeous photographs and newspaper clippings, I didn't know this but when my mum was younger she used to collect these herself in a scrapbook so she was really happy to have them again in a proper book! And it is a proper nice book, it comes leatherbound and it's pretty big too - like newspaper size. The personalisation is a very nice touch so it makes the perfect gift (even though I've been nicking it off mama to have a browse of my own!)

But it's not just a coffee table book to flick through, it covers the whole of Bowie's career from his wild 70s heyday to his later years happily married to Iman. I think in today's society it can be easy to be unappreciative of just how original he was and how he helped pave the way for those who were just a little bit different. He blurred the lines regarding gender, music and fashion and I think we take it for granted now what a trailblazer he was but we're reminded of this when looking back on old newspaper reports commenting on his 'shocking' behaviour. It's interesting to read how the media's attitude towards him changed in later years.

All in all it's a fitting tribute to a legend and it's something that I know my mum will treasure so I'm really happy I had the opportunity to gift it to her! I Just Love It has loads of personalised gifts on the site, personally I'd recommend the books as I think they make beautiful gifts but they have loads of things to choose from so you'll be sure to find the perfect present for someone (remember Valentine's Day is coming up 😏)

What do you think of personalised gifts? Are you a Bowie fan too? 




*The book was gifted but Bowie fangirling all my own and no payment was received in return for this post!
