When you wish upon a star
Now I don’t know about you but when it comes around to buying gifts for people you either find it really easy or it can be one of the most difficult and stressful things in life! Given enough notice, however, I’m usually pretty ok at getting my head and butt in gear and always manage to find a gift that suits.
However, when we were invited to a Naming Ceremony I was a bit stumped. What do you buy for a naming ceremony?!
Now the baby that we were off to celebrate joining the world is 6months old and to be honest, he and his parents have everything they could ever need and want for a baby is this age. I wanted to find a gift that was truly unique and something that would stand out from the usual gifts. I got my thinking outside the box cap on and hey presto I had it.
We would name a star for the latest addition to our family.
The first place I turned was Instagram and I type ‘Name a Star’ into the search bar and was pleasantly surprised to find a company by that name offering just what I was after.
Scrolling through their very friendly and explanatory website I found various packages that I could choose from, plus add extras if I wanted to. I decided to select the standard package and added an extra star map on.
Each of the packages can be personalised with different details including name, date (this can be any, we went for date of birth) and also which kind of star you want.
These details then appear on a naming deed when including the exact coordinates for locating the star. The star map also indicates where in the night sky.
The total price for the package including postage, which is free, and the extra star map and in total came to £19.98 which is a fan price.
I was extremely pleased to find that within 24hours of ordering the star, the package had been shipped and arrived with me within 2 days.
I bought a frame separately and took great pleasure in seeing how special this gift looked.
Handing over the package on the day I felt very proud of the choice I'd made.
The parents were thrilled to receive this unique gift and were showing it off to everyone at the ceremony.
I spoke to them after they had opened it and this it was they said;
”We absolutely love it, its something so special and when he is older it's something we're going to be able to explore with him”
If you are looking for that unique and special gift then this is the one for you. I will be recommending this service to everyone I know and will be using it again in the future.
