Make A Wish - Star Name Registry Review and Giveaway.

Naming a star is always something I have wanted to do, but have never felt justified in spending that money as a gift to myself. Hinting never works with my husband either, so that idea was well and truly out of the window.

I've always figured that these types of things make better gifts to people rather than gifts to ourselves? Maybe that's just me thinking that!

I was contacted by the Star Name Registry to receive and review the 'Extra Bright Star Gift Set' and I was absolutely over the moon to receive it; very quickly too!

The Extra Bright Star Gift Set contains the following:
Entry into the Registry
A4 Star Name Deed
The Sky Atlas Star Maps
A4 Silver Certificate Frame

You also get the option to add wooden roses if you want to make it extra special for someone!

When I first read the contents I will be honest and thought everything would come packaged individually, but I was so wrong. It arrived quickly and packaged in the most beautiful silver box; inside the certificate was already in the frame and wrapped up in bubble wrap to ensure protection during the delivery process.

When it came to naming the star, I decided to just go with my daughter's first and middle names; Aoife Neave. I was also given the option to choose a constellation so I went with Aries as this is her star sign and I am obsessed with horoscopes!

I love how the certificate details the exact location of the star too and you can go and look at it online too!

In regards to stars themselves, I know nothing about them! The Sky Atlas was a Godsend for me and was actually very interesting to read too. I may have to take up astronomy as a hobby now!

Even my husband was impressed which is saying something - we have already picked out the wall we will be hanging it (I say we, I mean he!).

If you are looking for a gift for someone I would highly recommend this package as it is something different which also has added meaning behind it too. The Extra Bright Star Gift set retails at £44.99 but there are several different options to choose from on their website.

Star Name Registry have also given me the opportunity to let one of you win your own Name your own Star retailing for £24.99 which you can see here.
