Good idea BUT
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.
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.
I bought one of these Name a Star Gift Boxes for each of my Grandchildren (and for the one due in February). I thought it would be something unusual for them and a present that will literally last them a lifetime. They were delighted and so was the mum to be. The 7 year old was really excited about it and the fact that he will be able to find "his" star on a map and be able to show his school friends. The parents are doing the registering (the process seems quite easy) and helping the grandchildren choose or make up names. All-in-all I am very happy with my purchases!
Name a Star Gift Box
Name a Star Gift Box is an excellent and really lovely present to give to a loved one, friend or even to keep for yourself. To get the chance to forever have an actual Star named after someone and the price of the gift is very reasonable too. Excellent gift from an excellent site, I love it.
Name a Star Gift Box
A lovely flat metal box with a name a star label on. When you open it it's just papers in a plastic bag which is a bit disappointing. It could have had a little more colour or something to it. I knew you went online to name your star which at the time of writing my daughter hasn't done yet so can't comment on how easy/difficult that is but as a gift its a lovely idea it just lacks something when you open the tin. I popped some silver stars in mine.
Star of an idea
I wanted something special and different for my mum for her 60th. Looked everywhere then found IWOOT and the perfect gift from her grandaughter! They can plot its position together, think of a meaningful name and it's timeless! Love it and will be back for more truly inspiring gifts.
Name a star gift box
This Name A Star Gift Box is great for all those budding entertainers out there. Now you can literally say... "there's a star with your name on out there", "because I bought it for you!". The only downside I could see is that it does seem a tad complicated. The recipient loved it and was boasting that she has a star named after her like a goddess.
Would be good if you could see it!
I was very very disappointed when I got no choice in the star I named and the star allocated to me is too dim to be seen with the naked eye or any equipment that most normal people would have at home! There is also no map of where your star is in the sky, only a set of co-ordinates.
Name a star.
I was really pleased with the 'Name a Star' gift box. I purchased it for my best friend after she had her first baby girl. I thought the gift was unusual and unique. The gift itself looks nice as it comes sealed in a metal tin. I was also pleased that I didn't have to register the star myself as my friend added a middle name to her baby at a later date. You have a year to register star which I thought was a good idea.
