Time, the ultimate May 5th gift!


Now, you or someone you love, can be the sole owner of any minute on May 5th, past, present or future.

For example, imagine giving your loved one the minute you met, the minute they were born or the minute you both said "I do" on May 5th. Preserve the memory of an important anniversary, a minute on the day your favourite film star was born or any other special moment on May 5th.

Now you can give that exact date and time, beautifully presented in its very own framed 'Certificate of Ownership' from the 'Universal Time Registry' for just £9.99 + p&p.

Once that minute has been taken by you, it's yours forever. Nobody else can own the same minute. This is truly a unique gift.
