Name A Star: Review and Giveaway 

Do you get stuck with gift ideas? If you are anything like me, the answer is probably yes! I love thoughtful presents; something handmade, personal or unique in some way. But sometimes it can be difficult to come up with something that really fits the bill. So when I found about naming your very own star, I was excited to discover such a fab gift idea! It is ideal for the person who has everything (I bet they don’t have their very own star!), anyone with an interest in stargazing or who loves the outdoors in general, or for someone who just likes something that bit different!

There are a variety of packages to choose from, with prices ranging from £14.99 for a standard star to £69.99 for a binary star gift set, as well as several other options inbetween. Their gift set version of each package comes with a framed certficate beautifully presented in a silver box, whereas the regular version comes in an envelope. If you need it in a hurry, you can choose to have it sent via email for an extra £4.99 (sent within 12 hours of order received) or £6.99 for next day delivery (paper version). Gift sets can also be sent via next day special delivery for £8.49. So handy to remember as a last minute present too!

I was sent an extra bright star gift set to review. This lovely set includes my very own star, which I not only got to name but was also able to choose which constellation I wanted it in too, an explanation of the star, free download of software, map and framed certificate in a gorgeous silver box. It does make a really unusual and very lovely gift.

I took quite sometime trying to decide on the name of my star and considered a couple of different options; for example, I thought about naming it after my daughter, or even her nickname ‘Squiggle’. But then I came up with the perfect idea: I chose our family name, because then the star represents all of us together. Wherever any of us are, we can look up at the night sky and see our star, and know we are together. It even includes our furbabies! Perfect.

  1. I would name it for my Mum who sadly passed away 17 years ago. I think it would make a lovely tribute to her.

  2. I would name the Star Cheyenne <3 and give it to mom put a smile on her face Cheyenne was my niece's name <3

  3. I would call my star Nevaeh. and gift it to my step daughter as she lost baby Nevaeh just before her second birthday.

  4. I’d put it in my daughters time capsule, for her to open on her 18th as we wrote lovely letters for her first birthday and this would be a fabulous addition.

  5. I would give this to my dad 🙂 because he has a special birthday coming up and it would be a lovely way of commemorating it

  6. id gift it to my daughter who wants to study astronomy at uni, id name is elisabetania after her imaginary world when she was a kid!

  7. I would do it for my very best friend. I would have to hunt out some Latin or Greek equivalent of his name – John

  8. I asked my husband for a star for Christmas but apparently blatantly asking is still not a big enough hint for him so I never got one. I’d name it Ember like our daughter.

  9. I would gift it to my niece. She is Minion mad, I wouldn’t be suprised if she named the star after one of the characters.

  10. I would give this to my husband for his 50th this August.He loves stargazing so to have his own star deed would make his day
