Bobcat just turned three. He received so many toys and books, that (sorry, friends and grandma) that at least two-third of all the presents ended up hidden and we will release them slowly over the next year. We had to do this, as last a Christmas he got so overwhelmed by opening all the presents containing toys, that we decided, that next time we will somehow try to keep it under our control. His birthday fast approaching (knowing that this was going to happen), I really struggled for a few weeks, what kind of personalised gift we can get for him. And all of a sudden, the perfect present just showed up.
Name a star. A real star. An actual star. I’ve heard about this before, but I always thought, that it’s a long and complicated process, costing you the Earth and you need to contact NASA or something. Well, none of those.
Name A Star is an online registry, where you can simply fill in a form and it’s all done in a few days. You can pick different packages depending on your budget and select the constellation (which I found really amusing). Also, you can pick a star, which is visible in the UK. With a memorable date written on the Star Deed and a personal message, you can further personalise the gift.
I received an Extra Bright Star Gift Set, in a tasteful silver coloured presentation box. The framed A4 star deed was accompanied by confirmation letter and large sky atlas. (We hung the sky atlas in his room, as he loves space related things, so that itself is a present for him.)
The whole presentation (even two royal blue wooden roses!) makes the gift set looking very elegant, so it would make a lovely novelty present for special occasions. Prices start at £14.99 and six different packages are available with fast and free shipping.
star-name-registry.com also offered the fantastic opportunity to WIN a an Extra Bright Star Gift Set worth of £34.98! (You will receive the certificate and the constellation map in an envelope after naming your star.) For a chance to win, please enter below.
