Unique Holiday Gift Giving

Are you looking for an over the top gift for Christmas? Some people are just difficult to shop for during the holidays, some had really big events happen this year. I have the PERFECT gift for both of them: Buy a STAR for them! International Star Registry is offering this great option for you and those you want to spoil with the most amazing gift.

Name A Star

This year, International Star Registry is offering something new. They are introducing a New Photographic Sky Chart in their star package when you name a star. Since 1979 International Star Registry has been naming stars for people all over the world. The star names and their coordinates are permanently recorded in the book YOUR PLACE IN THE COSMOS to be registered at the Copyright Office of the United States of America. To date 9 volumes of this book have been published containing over 2 million star names. The Photographic Sky Chart is a collaborative effort between a team of German photographers and International Star Registry. The location of the named star you chose for you loved one is digitally indicated and circled.

International Star Registry.  Name a star after your loved one, or celebrate a life event including the date with your very own star
This black framed photograph of the star makes an incredible gift. I got one for my dad and his wife, and I think it looks beautiful. There is also a beautifully presented certificate that presents all of the information about the star. It shows the star name and the coordinates all in a beautiful certificate. There is also a sky chart that shows where the star is located, including constellations nearby to help with location.

Celebrate Life Events

For this Buy A Star gift, I was also able to pick a date that was special to all of us in the family. This date is also highlighted on the certificate that shows the Star Name and the star’s coordinates. If your loved one graduated from school, had a baby, got married, or had another big life event this year then adding the date to their star name would really be a great personal touch. What better way to commemorate this event in their life than to have it on their personalized piece of the heavens! It will be forever written in the stars… literally!

So if you have someone that you just cannot figure out what to get a gift for during the holidays, or if you are celebrating something big this year, why not Name A Star for your loved ones? It will be something they will never forget.
