As you probably already know, it was Mother’s Day on Sunday the 26th March, and even though my Mum got what she wanted, I wanted to get her a little something extra to say thank you. That’s why when the guys over at Star Name Registry very kindly asked me if I would like to send someone one of their Extra Bright Star Name Gift Sets, I of course said yes. Well I gave my Mum the beautiful gift set on Mother’s Day, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of it.
What Star Name Registry say about themselves.
Star Name Registry, is an independent star registry based in the wonderful city of Cardiff.
We specialise in naming stars in the sky and then presenting customers all across the world with unique and bespoke gifts using the personalised details that they have given us.
Here’s what was included in the gift set.
I was very kindly sent the Star Name Registry Extra Bright Star Name Gift Set, which included entry into the name registry, an A4 Star name deed, the sky atlas star maps, a confirmation letter, a free Stelarium software download, and an A4 silver certificate frame which was all beautifully wrapped in dark blue tissue paper, and packaged in a large silver box.
What Star Name Registry say about their Extra Bright Star Gift Set.
Name a real star, the standard package offers you everything you need with entry into the Star Register, specify a constellation, or choose extra bright for increased visibility and magnitude.
What I thought of the ordering process.
I found the ordering process incredibly easy, as all I had to do is choose the name of the star, pick the constellation that I wanted it inn, add a memorable date and personal message, and add it to my basket. All I then had to do is pay, and wait for it to be delivered.
What I thought of it’s packaging.
I absolutely loved the dark blue tissue paper and massive silver box that this came in, as I thought that it looked beautiful whilst still looking really professional. I also thought that the massive silver box was perfect for giving as a gift, as it didn’t need anything adding to it, like ribbon, to make it into a gift.
What I thought of the boxes contents.
I really loved everything that was inside the box, as I thought that they had included everything to make this into the perfect personalised gift.
I really liked that they had included a sky atlas so that you could learn all about the constellations and where they are in the universe, and that they had also included a very substantial silver frame so you could display your star name deed.
I also really liked that you could use your unique star reference code to find your star on Google Sky, and that all of the stars are never named twice, which means that no one else will ever have your star, and that your gift is truly unique.
My overall thoughts.
I would have to rate the Star Name Registry Extra Bright Star Name Gift Set a nine point five out of ten. I absolutely loved it, and more importantly my Mum loved it too, but she did say that she wanted to put it in a different frame so that it matched her decor. Other than that, I thought that it was fantastic, and perfect to give to someone that you really love, as who wouldn’t love their very own star?
