We were searching for weeks for a xmas present for our nan.For a woman in her 70's she has everything, she doesn't want ornaments, she still has toiletrie sets unopened from 2 years ago, we were completely stuck! While browsing, we spotted the "NAME A STAR" gift! How perfect! so with a mixture of our nans name and our deceased grandfathers name there we have it! A star named for her DOTTIEVILLE! Its perfect! with the instructions enclosed it only took a minute to register the star name, and we managed to find the star on the map easily! I would recommend this gift for anybody! how more personal a gift can you get!
I was browsing through the gifts list last year when I came across this. I read the review 'Something to leave behind - a Legacy' and was so overwhelmed that I emailed all of my friends and family as to how beautiful this was and the perfect gift. I lost my Mum 6 years ago and thought it amazingly fitting and somthing very special to be able to look up to the stars and imagine she was looking down at me (or at least a star named after her - something I could identify with when I looked into the stars). Whenever I see fireworks, I cry, because my Mum loved them so much and it was wonderful to have family get togethers where we would watch them. After she died, we raised £7000 in her name towards Cancer charites and the weekend was completed with fireworks shooting into the night sky. I had a lump in my throat when I looked up and thought of her.
Last Christmas, I received this gift from my Partner and Husband to be. He was unaware of the email I had sent and yet he thought it was the perfect gift for me. He was not so suprised when I was filled with emotion and said I wanted to name it after my Mum (Pamela Fitzgerald nee Gennis).
This is truly a Legacy to leave behind and a lovely story to tell your Children and Grandchildren. A hard gift to beat, I think.
Bought as a b'day present.
Very nice gift - you send off and get a proper certificate.
All round a very nice, personal, unique and overall worthwhile purchase and gift
i got this for my girlfriend just as a random present, because i saw it on here and i read these reviews and thought i would get it her as it would last until the star burnt itself out, and she absolutely loves it. There is one downside to this gift though and that is deciding what to name the star :) This has to be the perfect gift for anyone for any occasion or just a random gift. Top buy
This is the perfect gift for anybody and i mean anybody
the pen that is mentioned is only a nib and ink wrapped in lots of paper.
it also contains a map of the stars and a couple of leaflets giving infomation about your star and how to register.
all in all a brilliant gift and a fun fact to brag to your friends!
