    Russian Revolution Centenary gift ideas 12th Mar 17 at 7:05 PM
    Weird post, I know.

    I'm trying to find a gift that specifically commemorates the 1917 Russian Revolution for my friend's 40th birthday later this month. I can't find anything online and have no idea what to get for him. Does anybody have any ideas?

    My 21st birthday was in 2005, the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar, and he got me a piece of HMS Victory as a souvenir. My 30th was in 2014, so he got me a commemorative First World War Centenary keepsake.

    He is mad about ships, the navy, and he studied Russian and Soviet Studies at university, hence the request for ideas for his 40th.

    How about copies of the Eisenstein films 'Battleship Potemkin' or 'Ten Days That Shook The World'?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I decided on this in the end:
