The kit comes complete with a registration form to fill in and send by post, or alternatively you can fill the form in online. Once you have named your star, completed the form and sent it off you will receive a certificate of confirmation for your very own star in the universe. Once registered your uniquely named star will be published in the Star Registry.

Do something a little different this Christmas, Valentine's Day or birthday by giving someone this fun and exciting gift you can share and marvel at together. - J.D.
After registration you will receive:
Can I call my star anything I choose?
Yes, there are no restrictions with star name choice.
How long does it take to receive my confirmation certificate?
This depends on how you choose to register your star. If you register online then you will receive your star confirmation certificate within 10 working days. If you fill out and return your form by post then this period of time is slightly increased to 28 days from when the form is received by Gift Republic.

I bought this as a gift for a friend. I revieved it in such great time the shipping was amazing. Would definitely recommend however the box is a bit big for what's inside however it's ideal to put a letter and card inside So I feel it's the perfect gift for anyone!!
I was fully satisfied with the product. A fantastic gift idea for anyone not just those interested in astronomy! The delivery arrived on the date that was given and I have no complaints.
Just what do you get for your Dad's 88th birthday? Don't say a 25 year old, thank you, although he would probably enjoy... no let's not go there. We all get to the age when choosing something for yourself or someone else becomes sooo difficult so when I was browsing IWOOT website I found the ideal gift. He was 'over the moon', yes I know, and took great care in choosing a name that means a lot to him. Brilliant idea, everyone should have one. Thank you IWOOT.
What an amazing idea for a gift. Who wouldn't like this??
I was extremely happy when I found this gift on your website and at such a great price. My partner was 'over the moon' with it and I have you to thank. Will always use this website in future and certainly recommend to everyone I know. Yours thankfully Dean collings
This gift was well received as my secret santa gift to a work colleague. I knew he followed astronomy and he was blown away with the gift. It was presented well with a silver tin and packaging and had all the necessary papers. He already knew which star he wanted to name! A very thoughtful gift.
If your recipient has everything,this is an ideal gift. It comes in a thin metal box, which has them guessing through the wrapping. Very unusual. Instructions are there how to register your star and what to name it. Our star was magnitude 9 which is invisible to the eye, but we did find it on Google Sky, so we now know where it's located. We can pretty much point its location to others. The star was named after a deceased relative, which made it even more special.
It look s good but they are christmas presents so cant comment fully as yet,
Fast delivery and easy to follow instructions.
Product exactly as described. Easy hassle free service and quick delivery.
Excellent value. As this is a gift for my husband which is for christmas I expect he will love it. Excellent communication with customer service thank you
I bought this for my Godson's christening present and am really happy with it. I received it very quickly and found the registration process easy, I am just waiting to receive my certificate.
Really happy with the purches .something different for a Xmas gift
Received exactly what I was after as the description specified, feel very satisfied with the quality and was actually even better quality than I was expecting. Very swift delivery also, thank-you!
Happy with the product, got it pretty fast and I herself loved it
Bought as 1st birthday gift very pleased with the item. Was despatched really quickly and instructions for how to register the star name was very easy all in all very pleased
Really happy with product. Arrived quick and will make a great gift
Excellent gift, and excellent customer service. Five stars all round. There was a mix up with the delivery by the courier, but it was immediately dealt with professionally and courteously by IWOOT. Will definitely be shopping here again for more great bargains :-)
got this for my daughters 21st she was gobsmacked ! ...and very chuffed thanks.
What a wonderful idea for a Christening Gift. The product arrived as expected in an excellent condition. Really can't grumble with any part of the service.
In my opinion this is a really nice gift for that friend or loved one. Deffo a must buy!!
I brought one of these for my Mum for Mother`s Day and when she was opening it and she was reading the front her eyes lit up and her face was a picture, she was so excited. She still cannot believe that she has a star named after her. I am so very pleased that I brought this wonderful gift for her. Only thing it did say that you get a pen but it was not in the tin, it may arrive with the certificate as that has not arrived yet. I also got one for my Niece for her birthday in April but she doesn`t know it yet !
I didn't order many products, just one for my wife's birthday. I believe though that if the people running a shop respect their customers, they will respect even the smallest customer. That was the case for me. Everything went fine and I shared the gift with my wife as planned and as soon as possible even if I live in Greece. I have already suggested IWOOT.com to a few family members.
Got this for my aunty whose taken a Sebastian gap year. She is really into astrology and it's a perfect fun gift. Was delivered quickly. Can't fault the service.
I brought this for my partner as a surprise gift. He is a lover of stars & planets so this is perfect for him. I would reccommend this a gift for any age. It is nice to know that there is actually a star up there that is yours.
This was bought for my brother in law as a 30th birthday present which i had registered in his late mothers name. It arrived very quickly and the gift registeration was quick and delivered quickly as well. VERY HAPPY!
A sentimental and precious gift, not only to give but also to buy. Knowing you almost bought someone a star. For your lover, offspring, or the person that has everything. Bright are the stars that shine Dark is the sky I know this love of mine Will never die And I love her
I bought three of these, 1 for myself to give to my mum & 2 for my friends who have both lost people who ment everything to them. We are love our stars, such a beautiful gift to have! So glad I got them!5+++
I bought the Name a Star tin as a gift for someone special. Firstly, the price was incredible considering how much I think the recipient will appreciate such a gesture. Secondly, the delivery was very quick and the package arrived safely, with no damage etc. Lastly, the quality of the gift itself is wonderful; there are clear instructions for how to name your star and lots of extra information, all beautifully presented in the tin. I am so impressed. This is the first time I have shopped with IWOOT but I will absolutely be returning. Thank you very much.
Fabulous Gift.I have ordered about 3 of these now as gifts for family and friends and all loved the gift. All thought it was so unusual and is actually something personal to them as well that they will never lose. A great present. Thank you IWOOT.
Fantastic gift ,a very happy boyfriend Xmas day !! l will be buying another as its so unusual highly recommended 😊
I brought this item as a gift for a very good friend, absolutely amazed at how much info and facts you get with it!, definitely would recommend this item!
A lovely very different gift and my niece was thrilled to bits. She said something that will always be hers only and she can look up and she will be able to see her star amongst all of the others. Thank you.
I have been looking up this item for a while now as I plan to give it to a friend turning 18. It came through the post with no delays, I was surprised! For me, this was the perfect little gift to show that special someone how much they mean to you. Will definitely be purchasing more items for IWOOT. (Double thumbs up)
My brother loves astronomy and I bought this for him as I think it will make him really happy. We like the fact that you can name the star anything you want. He has said its the perfect present for him. Thankyou IWOOT.
This gift is exactly what it says it is, i bought it for my Dad because we always watch meteor showers together and he loves space. The packaging is simple but really nice and it contains everything you need to set up the star and it gives you lots of information. Fantastic!
This product is great and came a lot quicker than anticipated. Only problem is that this website says once you register your star it will come in 10 days but once I registered my star it says up to 28 days so I'm crossing my fingers it will be here before Christmas! Apart from that very pleased!!
Bought as a christening gift - very unique. Great gift.
Excellent gift. Well packaged and a fab little gift for your Loved one. Me and my Boyfriend always say "I love you to the Stars and back" or "to the moon and back", so I thought this was perfect for his Birthday.
I bought the 'name a star' gift box for our daughters 1st birthday. Now, whilst I am very pleased with the gift itself I must say I am shocked at the amount of packaging used. It came in a medium cardboard box with air filled plastic and 2 large sheets of brown paper folded many times. I am pleased at the amount of effort to ensure the gift arrived in tip top condition but in these days of being environmentally friendly I feel this is a bit extreme.
This is an on going present, not only to the person who receives it, but to all their family and friends. The star can be seen all over the country and therefore shared.
Sentimental/Everlasting touch - enough said worth the money for the effect and the memory! I'll be remembered long after I'm 'gone' and a s a star (could be worse ; ) ) lovely cost effective gift for leaving families something not too serious to hold onto!
The Name A Star Gift is great value for money and a unique gift to give to someone I have purchased this for my newborn son and it will be something for him to keep and treasure knowing there is a star named after him. Highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for a gift that is unique as well as different.
I bought this as a present for my nan and grandad. The item arrived the next day, and was very easy to set up. There is a choice to register online or by post for the techno-phobes. Brilliant little gift idea.
We named the star after our old dog who is no longer with us. A perfect way to remember him.
The idea of it is very good and unique. However, when you get the item it all looks very nice but its not geniune. Infact it says on the packaging something along the lines of "It is not possible to change the name of a scientifically registered star. This is a novelty gift and should not be considered otherwise." I personally returned it. Could still be a nice gift for a child that wouldn't question if it was real or not, but I bought one for my Dad as he is interested in astronomy. I was quite dissappointed when I found out it was simply a novelty gift. I don't think thats made clear before purchase.
Fantastic for an unusual gift
Love this gift. Comes in a neat presentation tin with everything neded to name your star. Bought as a gift, leaving the naming to the lucky recipient. Previously bought the same gift from a different company (17 years ago) (& paid a heck of a lot more for that one!) and it was one of the best reactions to a gift I ever had. Hopefully this will get the same reaction! Fantastic value.
