A really unusual and lovely gift idea is to name a star after a loved one. It is a gift to give to someone who has everything and is something that is both timeless and thoughtful, so special compared to chocolates or flowers or a run of the mill toy. Star Name Registry allows you to name a star visible in the UK for someone special. It is a very easy process and can cost from as little as £14.99. I think this is a perfect gift ideas and one which shows you have really thought about the person who will receive it.
It is very simple to get your own star, you just need to fill in some details to make it personal to you. You can chose from a standard star, an extra bright star and a binary star, and you can also choose the constellation that your star appears in.The other details you need to fill in include a name for your star (in my case I named a star Joe Luca after my son), a memorable date can be attached to the star – perfect if this is to commemorate a new baby, a wedding or something like a graduation, and you can also add a personal message from you to the person who is receiving the star. You also have the option to upgrade the star into a gift set where your certification can be beautifully framed and presented in a rather lovely gift box.
I have named a star after my boy Joe Luca. The special date was his date of birth and I chose the constellation Ursa Major (the Great Bear). I also added a message:
Joe, you will always be our star, so we decided to name a real star after you. On a starry night, you will be there, shining in the sky.
Love always Mom and Dad.
It is such a lovely gift, and Joe was fascinated by the idea that there is now a star in the sky that is actually named after him. It really is the perfect gift for all your special Earthbound stars.
