Gift The Name Of A Star
What do you get the person who means everything to you but has everything already?
My husband is the type of person who will either appreciate two things , 1 being some sort of tool , mechanic, engine or something with wheels or 2 something sentimental and meaningful.
This year , I really struggled to find something to gift him for our Valentines . He already had everything he wanted and we were trying to save for Decorating the house as well as a family holiday , so money was a little tighter than usual.
You can see how our Valentines turned out here and what we bought each other, we tried to keep it minimalist but this one gift was the main impression of the day and I was so happy when it arrived.
I had only realised that a sentimental gift such as this would be perfect on the eve of Valentine after coming across a tweet from @Starnamereg.
I had heard about naming stars before but for some reason I thought they would be so expensive that I had never actually looked into it .
star-name-registry.com is the UK's No1 online Star Registry . Naming your very own star means it is registerd within 24hrs and is unique to you, no star is named twice and no one else can own the same star as you .
There a few variety of choices to how you would like to receive your very own star and it does not cost as much as you might think, in fact naming your very own star can be as little as just £14.99 for a standard star or the most expensive is the Binary Star gift set which gives you two star names for £69.99.
With all stars you get -
With the Gift sets you also get included -
If your puchasing the Extra Bright Star or The Binary Stars , you will also receive -
With all Stars , you will have the option to receive your star by mail or at an extra charge have it emailed to you which will be delivered within 12 hours from purchasing. Unfortunately this does not apply to the gift sets but with the gift sets you can ask for wooden roses to be sent with your star so this makes it an extra special treat especially if this is for a loved . Valentines Day was perfect for us receiving the Extra Bright Star Gift Set with Wooden roses .
The surprise of having this come through the door was definitely one of my husbands most loved yet. I never saw him so emotional to find he had his very own star named after him and not only was it named after him but this imparticular star I had chosen for him had a secret meaning, a few actually and brought sentimental feelings to why he appreciated it as much as he did.
Back when I was only 17 years old back in 2000, I met my now husband and we instantly became the very best of friends and no more. We moved in together and remained absolute soul mates . We shared our very first kiss under the stars at a family event but refused to share the thought we would actually ever be together but remained the very best of friends and spent many a night layed on the roof top of his flat that we shared talking for hours on end about everything and nothing.
Two years later I left to make my own life him to move into my own home and we departed into our own little worlds.
Back in 2008 , I met him while he was working one evening and we share our second kiss under those same stars again but this time feeling like the time was right and we decided to make a go of it.
As our relationship grew , we had children, he named my youngest daughter Drew Bear, no idea why but it kind of stuck with her and now we're married and totally inseperable .
While spending many more a kiss under the stars over the years of being together we kind of took it upon ourselves to name a specific star ours but never really registered it until realising we could this Valentine.
When I registered that particular star we actually found that it's nickname was indeed Little Bear (surprisingly the nickname he had been giving my youngest daughter from day one ) and so it only seemed even more fitting that it was definitely the choice for us.
The Gift set came in a silver box layered with his favourite colour of blue wrapping and among it lay 4 gorgeous handmade wooden roses which suited the cupid theme of Valentine .
His eyes watered as soon as he noticed what the box had inside it and he just looked at me with such love that I knew instantly he loved it as much as I thought he would.
Sentimental gifts are always the perfect gift , if its homemade or means something , it shows you actually put thought and effort into sending that someone you loved something special and they appreciate it so much more.
This star was his most loved gift to date, I don't ever think I will be able to top this one 'His Words', and being gifted in a frame , it will be placed on the wall for all to see .
Having loved this Star nameing Gift so much I have come together with Star-name-registry.com to give one lucky person the chance to win their very own Bright Star Gift Set for themselves or to gift to someone special they think may deserve such a beautiful and unique gift. All you have to do it enter below and wish upon a star , Good luck!

I love the idea of this. We don't do the Valentines gift thing, instead making time for each other and doing something quality. Especially as both our birthdays are close so it's just too much. However, I am also stuck for a gift for my wife. She is SO picky! I think I might find some little stationery bits....maybe a star for her 35th ;) x
21/2/2017 10:26:54 pm
I've never heard of this before, it does sound like an amazing idea x
22/2/2017 09:30:37 am
If I named a star I'd call it starpops and would gift to my father in law for helping us so much the last year he never wants anything and this he def wouldn't have yet
22/2/2017 09:42:37 am
My son's 21 next yr and he's always been fascinated by stars this would be something different to give to him
22/2/2017 09:43:54 am
I would call it Lolle and gift it to my daughter
22/2/2017 09:51:09 am
I think this is such a fabulous gift. We do Valentines but a night away but this is extra special. My mum has one as well and she loves it x
22/2/2017 10:48:23 am
It is such an amazing idea! It's meaningful and something completely different. Unexpected. Just beautiful! I like the idea of donating it to a charity like Samaritans and then they can say to callers to look in the star, and realise one is looking out to them. Not sure what i'd name it though haha x
22/2/2017 11:37:35 am
I'd after name it IrisGail after my grandmother and my mum who are sadly no longer with us..This would be a lovely way to remember them by everytime i look in the sky.
22/2/2017 12:30:16 pm
This is a truly lovely gift idea! I have done it before and will definitely do it agin x
22/2/2017 01:10:16 pm
Not sure of a name but my partner is called Mark so something that would fit with his name would be nice or something that links both our names and i would give it to him xx
22/2/2017 03:11:38 pm
I think giving someone a star as a gift is so nice.
22/2/2017 04:45:08 pm
I always thought this would make such a lovely present for an anniversary. I would love it!
22/2/2017 06:03:22 pm

22/2/2017 06:53:15 pm

22/2/2017 08:48:50 pm
I would name a star after my grandmother and give it to my mum. She misses her every day.
22/2/2017 11:32:58 pm

22/2/2017 11:55:17 pm
AWWW! This is such a great idea! One of my best friend's gifted her boyfriend a star and he adored the concept.
23/2/2017 12:49:22 am

Would love this for My son as he is my star and hero his been through so much fingers crossed
24/2/2017 08:29:49 am
You get a lot included for the price! Having a Star named is pretty cool x
24/2/2017 08:32:21 am
I love the idea of this but then it also annoys me as no one owns the stars to be able to sell them in the first place and there are so many companies that now offer this that at some point that star will belong to multiple people. It would really upset me if I bought a star and then found out that I share that star with 4 others x
24/2/2017 09:02:59 am
there are soo many different stars that there is no way that anyone could own the same star as they are all put on a registry that ensures this. We have chosen minor ursa but the main stars that make that constellation are obviously taken so we have a star that is in this area , something you probably wouldnt see unless your using a very good telescope, it is the thought that makes it beautiful and they ensure you with authenticity and your own coordinates to check online that no one else has your star. its unique to you xx
24/2/2017 08:39:44 am
What a great gift idea. I have never thought of this before.
24/2/2017 11:18:11 am
wow, this is such a unique gift idea! wish i had knew about this earlier. its beautiful :')
24/2/2017 12:10:23 pm
I would love to have my own star that I could name ,
24/2/2017 06:35:42 pm
I'd name it after my Dad and gift it to my mum in his memory x
24/2/2017 09:13:13 pm
I think I would name my star after my daughter, although I have bought stars for my sister in law and they are named after her children xx
24/2/2017 09:17:06 pm
What a lovely idea! I've heard of people doing this but wasn't so sure how reliable it actually is. with reading more information here I think its a pretty lovely idea!
25/2/2017 07:52:37 pm

27/2/2017 11:40:54 am

What a beautiful story... many yrs ago I named a star as a gift to myself, (sad I know 😕). I've always had the intention of naming some stars for my children but as yet, I've not got round to doing it. So with that in mind I'd name the star 'PhillAmyJay' after my children. 💜💜💜

I would name my star "DORIS ROSE" and then give it to my Mum as that was my grandma's name who we sadly lost a few years back. If there's a single star in the sky, we often say "it's Grandma" - so would be a great gift.
15/3/2017 06:48:44 am
i would give it to my grandaughter and let her name a star x
15/3/2017 02:55:37 pm

28/12/2017 02:58:46 am
I love how it's possible for us to gift the stars to our loved one literally. The way you mentioned about the emotional reaction of your husband of having his very own star is inspiring me to get my beloved on for her too. I'll probably start with purchasing a great telescope so that when I get to register her name for a star we would be able to look at it together. It would literally place our love in the stars just like as I promised to her before. Thanks for the inspiration to try out to dedicating a start for someone!
