Name a star after a loved one with the Intergalactic Star Database and show them just what a star they are to you! Gazing up at a blanket of stars is one of life's great pleasures. Whether you're a casual stargazer, spend the whole night attached to your telescope, or simply want to make your mark in the heavens, why not name your very own star?
The Name a Star set comes with coordinates and a star wall map so you can star spot your star and details of how to register the issued star on the Star Registry. The star will officially be titled with your chosen name and you can show it off with the certificate you are issued. This novelty gift is great fun and offers a truly sentimental gift. Who knows there could be an updated version of the classic nursery rhyme to 'Twinkle twinkle little Clive' - it could happen!
Please note: This gift provides you with the opportunity to name a star as an enduring sentiment. Consequently it is of emotional rather than scientific worth. It is not possible to assign ownership of a star. It is the sentiment behind the gift that is significant since naming a star is an enduring personalised message. It is therefore a novelty gift idea which does not grant legal ownership or title. Most importantly, the named star will always be associated with the giver and recipient.

This Name A Star Gift Tin is an amazing gift for someone who has lost someone.
A really fantastic gift tin. The Name a Star Gift Tin does exactly what it says on the tin.
I bought this Name A Star Gift Tin for my mother. She absolutely loved the gift and the certificate she received in the post after she registered and named her star it is now framed, pride of place in the hall. This was an excellent gift, its fun, cheap and great for the star lovers of the world! I would recommend getting this for anyone that likes this sort of thing, lots of hours spent trying to track down the star in the night sky! I'm very impressed.
The person who received this Name a Star gift really liked it and enjoyed finding their star.
I bought this Name a Star Gift Tin for my mother and she loved it. She spent a whole morning perusing the maps and documents, and was thrilled with it. Certainly an unusual and welcome alternative!
I gave the Name a Star Gift Tin as a present to my Mum on Mother's Day so she could name a Star after her granddaughter (my neice) that we lost in December to Cancer. She loved the idea and I am sure it will help her come to terms with our loss knowing she can look up and know she is looking down on us.
I was really pleased when the tin arrived and so was my Mum, as this was a Mother's Day gift.
Bought this for my fiancee for Valentine's Day. He absolutely loves it! Excellent present for a star gazer but equally romantic for anyone.
Who cares if it's not "officially named"? It's the thought that counts. I bought this for a female friend and she absolutely loved it, never seen her so happy. Great gift idea for sky-watchers and more.
Bought this as a different first wedding anniversary present. Couldn't think of something paper-related other than a paper aeroplane then I saw this. Yes it just names a star on a database but they love looking up and seeing "their star" shining above them, that's why I bought it.
This star means a lot. I bought this gift so my children will have an everlasting memory of their Father. Loved the little silver tin that it came in , it will make keeping it safe that much easier. The plotted star map will also help to locate the star, what a fab present.
I`ve just bought 2 Name a Star kits and could get a couple more before xmas they may not be a present you can hold but for a friend or family member that does not need anything much but wants to be reminded they are being thought of. These are perfect, one went to a friend just out of the cancer ward at the local hospital and the other to a work colleague who has been covering another managers shift for 3 weeks with no complaints. Both got massively positive responses and smiles for days perfect!
what a great idea. This will make a great stocking filler for people of any age. I would highly recommend this to all my friends and family.
I have purchased from iwoot before and always found the service exceptional, fast easy and secure payment along with quick delivery make the entire process completely painless! The name a star I bought was a small part of my wifes wedding present, it made her cry, a great gift with timeless implications! Although it was hard to choose from such an array of other stuff on the site, iv found loads of other presents for people now, so I'm sorted for birthdays for the next few years!
This is totally fake this is on Sir Patrick Moore's website and this is what he said ''Various agencies claim to be able to name stars on payment of a sum of money. But stars have not been officially named for hundreds of years. Have nothing to do with a scam of this kind''
this product is great!!!!it is the best gift I could get for my boyfriend. The delivery was the next day so that was brriliant! Everyone should do this for someone they love. don't hesitate!
Bought this for my daughter to give to her grandparents as she wanted to give something different! Result - grandma was in tears and grandpa was chuffed to be 'immortalised' in the stars! The reaction was more than expected and as an unusual gift, I highly recommend.
I got this star for my husband for Christmas I registed it and named after his best friend who passed away in Oct 09, his reaction was the best ever, it is a gift for life and his best mates name kept alive forever.
OUT OF THIS WORLD PRESENT TO MY WIFE AND NEW BORN GRANDAUGHTER EVERYONE THOUGHT IT WAS A GREAT GIFT FOR LIFE TO KEEP.SUPER THANK YOU FOR THE IDEAR.
