Name A Star Gift
Imagine the thrill of gazing up at the night sky, knowing that you personally have named one of the millions of stars you can see. Well, that's exactly what this great gift lets you do; making it an ideal unusual gift for kids of all ages.
The attractive presentation tin contains a host of goodies to fire the imagination of any future astronomers; including a Star Details leaflet, a History of Stars leaflet, a Stars Facts & Figures leaflet, a Stars & Astronomy booklet and a constellations souvenir poster, so you can plot exactly where your star is. The kit also includes easy-to-follow instructions explaining how to register the name of the star.
Registration can be done by post or online and once completed, the recipient will soon receive lots more information about stars and astronomy plus a certificate confirming your chosen star name. Each star is named only once and is guaranteed to be unique. Your star's name will also be published in the Star Registry.Read more
How long do I have to register my gift? You need to register your gift before the 'register by' date on your gift registration booklet. We recommend that you register your gift as soon as possible.
How long does it take for me to receive my Star Deed certificate? This will be dispatched within 28 days receipt of your registration details. Occasionally, factors outside of Gift Republic's control may affect delivery times.
Are there any restrictions on star names? Names deemed to include foul or abusive language will not be registered.
Will other people be able to name my star? There are millions of stars in the night sky and we guarantee that each star is named only once in the Star Registry. No one else can name your star!
Do I own my named star? It is not possible to grant legal ownership to a star. You don't own the star (neither does anyone else!) but you – and you alone – will have named it!
Can I see my star? The magnitude (brightness) of your star is listed on your Star Details Sheet which forms part of this gift, along with your star's co-ordinates. Due to the number of stars in the night sky, it is unlikely that your star will be visible, however with your star's co-ordinates, it is possible to research your star and plot its location. You may need to visit your local library to help you. Alternatively, there are numerous astronomy websites on the internet that will help.
Disclaimer: This gift does not grant legal ownership or title to a star. It is the enduring and personal sentiment behind this gift that is significant. Neither Gift Republic nor any other supplier can alter the name of well-known stars. The chosen star name will not necessarily be recognised by any scientific organisation or by astronomers and Gift Republic can accept no liability for this. Star names are published in the Gift Republic Star Registry which is stored in a secure location. A record of the Registry is periodically submitted to the British Library to ensure public accessibility and preservation. This is a novelty gift item and must be regarded as such.
