Gift buying isn’t always the easiest of tasks.  When those special occasions draw near I often find myself searching for meaningful presents that my friends and family will love.  This week I was offered the chance to review the perfect gift from the Star Name Registry.  Hubs and I had a star named after our girls and it’s just lovely.  From now on, present buying will be simpler than ever!

The ordering process is super simple.  All you have to do is name your star, choose the constellation you’d like it in, then add a memorable date and a personal message.  As we have two daughter’s our star is named after them, it’s in the constellation Andromeda which means princess, fitting don’t you think?  We used our wedding anniversary as the memorable date and added the personal message ‘Our two shining stars’.

When our package arrived it was boxed beautifully, ideal if gift wrapping is what you need.  I was so excited to see our certificate and I wasn’t disappointed.  Encased in a silver frame, it looks and feels so special.  The personal message could have been a little clearer, but this didn’t take anything away from the quality of the product.

The gift set also comes with a Sky Atlas so you can learn all about the constellations and where they are in the universe. One of the best bits about this gift is that you can search for your star, use your unique reference number and Google Sky will take you straight to it!  This is a really great feature that both Hubs and I were very impressed with.

I love that each star is never named twice, so our star will forever be named after our little monkeys.  It’s a unique gift that we will always treasure.  I know as they get older our children will be thrilled to know they have a star named after them too!

Overall, this is a product and service that I would highly recommend.  The uniqueness of naming your  own star makes this gift extra special.  The service from the Star Name Registry was second to none and the extra information you receive makes for a very interesting read.  Whether you want a star gift for yourself or someone else, the Star Name Registry is definitely the place to go!
