Photographic Sky Chart, a Star Named Terri

There are few gifts that you can give to your loved ones that are more unique than giving someone their own star named after themselves. I was faced with the challenge of selecting someone to give the gift of a Star Registry Custom Star Kit to and I selected myself. Yes, I gave this gift to myself. You’d of done the same thing, lol. I knew I couldn’t pick one of the kids because if one got one, the others would fuss. That gave me the excuse I was looking for to have a star named Terri. It’s the closest I’ll ever come to being a star. Sooner or later I will have to have a star named after the kids though. Everyone should experience that thrill.

For my review, I received a complete International Star Registry Custom Star Kit, and included in my kit was a black-framed Photographic Sky Chart as well as a Star Registry certificate. I hung it in an area where it would catch everyone’s attention. That way I can show it off and brag about my star named Terri. My star is coordinated and permanently recorded in the book YOUR PLACE IN THE COSMOS along with REAL stars like David Cassidy and Elton John. As hard as I try, while I think over my holiday gift list, I can’t think of anyone that wouldn’t love to have a star named after them. Not only would these made unique Christmas gift ideas, what a perfect gift for newborn babies. I can pretty much guarantee you will be giving the most interesting gift of all.

I received a sealed certificate of my star as well and I’ve been taking all sorts of photos of it to send to friends, family, and even people I barely know, ha. I like to be the most informative person that anyone else knows. When people I know, and again barely know, come to me with requests for gift ideas, I like to suggestions for unique gifts that are sure to be a hit. I don’t want to give anyone the same gift that someone else might give them and really, who does? As you can see in my photos, my star named Terri has its own Star Registry certificate number.

Can you see in my photograph and the below image, the location of my very own named star? It’s digitally indicated and circled *prod star owner*!

After you purchase your star, you can find and share them online as well. Please let me know if you decided to make this purchase and be sure to share your star location with me.

  1. My son would be amazed with this gift, but I’d have to do it for all! I don’t know what it is, but the winter sky is mesmerizing and whenever we get out of the car at night or go for a walk with our dog, we stare up at the sky. It would be so neat to know that one of them is ours. Thanks for sharing such a unique idea! It gave me a neat idea for a Birthday surprise next year – a telescope and a star. 🙂

  2. Oh wow that’s an incredibly unique gift to be naming a star after someone. It’s okay to give it to yourself as you deserve it! There’s a thrill to it as it becomes part of the world’s history. Yup, I can think of several people who would love to receive the star kit. My family of course and some special friends.

  3. When I was a kid, my grandpa has a star named after me as a gift for my birthday one year. I remember thinking it was so amazing and special! I could look up and see MY star! All these years later, it still sounds like such a great gift idea!

  4. There is nothing much i love than personalised gifts and i think this counts as a personalised gift. I have a few people that i would love to give a star and i think they would love it. This idea is super special and so unique and I too would proudly display it where everyone can see and be jealous lol.

  5. This is so cool! I love looking up into the sky to find stars but being from NYC, the bright lights pretty much take away from that. The connect the dots image of the stars is gorgeous, I would love to check this out one day!

  6. This would be a great gift to give to someone young once they begin to learn about space in school. I was and am always fascinated by astrology. You’re famous! You have a star! Lol.

  7. Very cool idea! I’m with you though, I would have totally named it after myself then got another one for my son. I agree it would be a perfect gift for a newborn baby, so sweet!

  8. I have always been curious about registering a star as a gift and I think this is something my kids would think is really cool. I think I might have to look into naming a star after each of them. It would definitely make a very unique gift and something they would all love.

  9. I gave this as a gift to one of my daughters when she was nine years old. She had started to develop an interest in astronomy so it made the perfect gift. She absolutely loved it and took her certificate to school for Show-and-Tell. She talked about it for weeks. I agree that it can be the perfect gift for the right person.

  10. How cool! I’ve always been a bit of a space nerd, so this would be an awesome gift (to give myself, perhaps?! No shame!). And I agree with you that this would be such a fun baby shower gift: can you imagine how neat this would be if the baby had a planets/stars/ space themed nursery!?! Definitely keeping this in mind for the babies that are arriving in 2015!

  11. These are such unique gift ideas.

  12. I love this. I need to name a star after my son such a great idea.
