The Perfect Gift: Name Your Very Own Star Review & Giveaway

I always get stuck for gift ideas don’t you? For years I have been on the hunt for the ‘perfect gift’ for loved ones in my family who trust me are awkward to buy for. Now I have heard of gifts like buying a square foot of land in Scotland so the gift recipient becomes a Lord – yes I did buy this for my husband, well he was my boyfriend at the time, but I’ve never heard of buying a star for someone.

Stars are much more romantic and special don’t you think. You can look up at the night sky from anywhere in the world and see the stars. I have always been a sort of star-gazer. As a child I used to pretend they were all tiny little worlds with their lights on. Studying the solar system and space at school was one of my favourite things.

Anyway because my husband has his miniscule piece of land in Scotland I decided to give the gift of a star to my daughter. Now she is too young to know what a star is at 13 months old, but I know she will appreciate it when she’s older. Plus if you need a gift for a baby born in the family, why not name a star in their honour? It would make an exciting gift that will stay with them forever.

The Perfect Gift: name your very own star review and giveaway

I was excited to receive my name your very own star package from star-name-registry.com who are the UK’s no. 1 online star registry. They will also enter your named star when purchased into the star name registry within 24 hours and no star is never named twice in their star name registry so it will be totally unique!

They do all sorts of star name packages to suit all budgets, starting from £14.99 for the standard star up to £69.99 for the Binary Star Gift set.

All stars come with:

  • Entry into the registry.
  • A4 Star Name Deed.
  • The Sky Atlas star maps.
  • Confirmation letter.

If you purchase any gift set you will also get:

  • A4 silver certificate frame.
  • Surrounded by dark blue tissue paper.
  • Large silver presentation box.

Extra Bright Star Name Deed

We received the Extra Bright Star Gift Set which came packaged beautifully. I’m in love with the two wooden roses included, it’s such a wonderful touch. This is an extra you can ask to be included. As well as naming the star you can also choose which constellation you wish the star to be in, this is a lovely touch! Plus you can input the unique reference number located on the certificate to star-register.org and you will be able to see all of the star’s details and a link to Google Sky where you will be able to find your star. Isn’t that fantastic!

If you need the star quickly, it can be emailed to you for a charge within 12 hours, but this doesn’t include the gift sets. Next day delivery is also available at an extra cost. Standard delivery is by 1st class Royal Mail  and is FREE to all UK orders placed.

 

The Sky Atlas by Star Name Registry

The Bright Star Gift Set is perfect for my baby girl, and the Star Name Deed framed certificate will go up in on her bedroom wall. I can’t wait to explain what it means to her, and I’m sure we will be scouring the night sky looking for her star!

    I’d be naughty and keep it for ourselves. We often try to think of a good way to remember the baby we lost in 2010, and this is a beautiful way.

    I would gift this to my fabulous sister-in-law Ann. She has everything that she needs and can afford to buy whatever she wants when she wants it. So to me….a broke 40 year old ME/CFS sufferer she is quite difficult to buy for, and I do like to try and surprise her but she is currently battling Motor Neurons Disease (MND/ALS…Stephen Hawking has this in case you are unaware of this condition). You see that it is doubly hard as she cannot move or speak now, so this prize would be fabulous and also give the whole family to look up to and remember her by when she loses her battle with this devastating disease.
