A Special Gift : Name Your Own Star Review & Giveaway

When it comes to buy a special gift I sometimes struggle. When it is a gift for someone special I find myself spending ages looking for that perfect gift. Some people are harder than others to buy for. I had heard about owning a small piece of land to become a lady a lord. However I haven’t heard about naming a star for someone. The idea of having a star named after you is pretty special.

Recently I was offered to review an Extra Bright Star Gift set from the Star Name Registry. I decided to name the star after my daughter Emily. She loves looking into the sky and looking at the stars so I knew that this would be the perfect gift for her and some thing she can treasure for the rest of her life.

As I had never bought a star for anyone before, I don’t quite know what to expect. When the gift set turned up I was thrilled. The set came in a lovely box, it contained a letter, a constellation map, details about the brightest star and a wonderful certificate in a frame. There was also two wooden roses which I thought was a nice touch.

Name A Star

All the information in the set is really informative and I love the constellation map. I was able to show E which constellation her star is in.

Name A Star

I chose the Gemini constellation because that is E’s star sign.

Name A Star

The gift set comes with a star name deed that is framed in a lovely silver frame.

The Star Name Registry is UK’s no. 1 online star registry. They 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!

What is another really great part of the gift, is that if you type your unique reference number in at the star register and google sky will take you straight to your star.

The Star name Registry 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 star register, a star name deed, sky atlas star maps and a confirmation letter. If you purchase a gift set you also get a the star name deed in a silver frame and the set comes in a lovely box with blue tissue paper.

It’s really simple to gift a star, you can choose the constellation, the name and even a message to go on the deed. They offer Quick and efficient delivery, just want you need for a gift – they are sent first class and will leave their office the day ordered if before 2.45pm. Plus there is no charge. If you are really in a hurry they can email the deed to you too.

I am really impressed with gift set, overall this is a product and service that I would highly recommend.  The uniqueness of naming your  own star makes this gift extra special.

Now the lovely people at the Star Registry are letting me give away the enveloped version of the Brightest star. It will include the certificate and constellation map.

Enter using the gleam app below.

UK only. Closing date 13th May 2017. There will be one winner and the prize will be arranged and sent direct from the Start Register.

    By using centrifuge equipment it is possible to
    extract it from your honey combs. There is certainly one main type of Honey Bee,
    with two subspecies that may be noticed in the United Kingdom.
    Distinguished veterinary surgeon David Urch tells us it may even be valuable in cases of bronchitis, rhinitis and sinusitis (head shakers).
