For The Person Who Has Everything

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you
– Pinocchio

Last week JHogg and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. It was just a couple of days after mothers day, so we celebrated the two together with a lunch in the hotel we got married in. It’s a tradition we have started and hope we’ll continue.

So choosing how to celebrate was easy – but choosing what to get him as a gift was a whole different ball game. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt in the 6 years we’ve been together, it is that JHogg has everything he wants. And if he doesn’t have it then he goes out and gets it. It doesn’t matter if it’s just weeks or even days before his birthday/christmas, he’ll just go and get it.

As you can imagine – this makes finding a gift really hard. But this year I think I hit the jackpot!

For The Person Who Has Everything | Everyone knows someone who is impossible to buy a gift for. I have beat the system and discovered the perfect present that anyone would love. Naming your own star is so easy and there are multiple packages available to suit every need

To acknowledge our anniversary I got him the ability to name a star. The Extra Bright gift set from the Star Name Registry just seemed the ideal option. It’s something he’s never done before but will hold sentimental value to us both as a couple.

Each star is unique – no star can be named twice and so no one else can have the same star as you.

All stars come with entry into the star register, and A4 star name deed, the Sky Atlas star maps and a confirmation letter. You get to pick the name, a memorable date to include and the constellation your star is in (additional charges apply). We chose the Corona Borealis (or the Northern Crown) as it is meant to represent romance/weddings/anniversaries.

The Extra Bright package that we received meant the certificate came in a frame and large silver gift box. This is a really nice touch and makes it feel extra special as a gift. There is the option to include wooden roses too – a lovely touch.

The sky atlas is fab. For those like me, who quite frankly know nothing about stars, it was clear to understand what was where and the differences between the constellations.

To say JHogg was surprised when I presented him with the gift set is an understatement! He was impressed that I’d thought outside the box and really come up with something different that he could appreciate.

For The Person Who Has Everything | Extra Bright Gift Set

The Extra Bright gift set retails for £44.99 which is actually a lot less than I expected. There are packages to suit all budgets and preferences, ranging from £14.99 for a Standard Star to £69.99 for the Binary Star Gift Set.

Do you know someone who would like the ability to name a star? One lucky person is going to have the chance to do just that. I have a set to give away worth £34.98 – simply enter below!

    I would call my star Treignac after a small village in France. The place where I first saw the stars and the night sky in all the their glory. An exceptional memory for me.

    Going with it ‘should be written in the ‘Star’ puns’ I’d choose ‘It’s nothing MAJOR…it’s only MINOR’ as it was my mum’s favourite saying to us when we were little kids 😉

    I love the idea of naming a star after someone special. It’s a great gift for someone who has everything. I like the idea of gifting one to a baby for their birth or first birthday.
