How to Buy a Star
If you’re looking for a special gift for the holidays, for birthdays and for anniversaries buying a star for someone would be the most perfect of gifts. It’s unique. It’s special. It’s perfect. If you’re thinking this would be a good gift for someone, I’m sharing how to buy a star today.
If you have someone in your life that you call your shining star. This is a gift they will love and cherish forever.
If you have someone in your life that you never know what to buy for because they have everything. This is perfect.
If you have someone in your life that is obsessed with the stars and the moon and the planets. This is perfect.
Honestly? There really isn’t anyone this gift wouldn’t be perfect for!
Here are the steps for How to Buy a Star because I feel like it’s going to be something you want to know and also remember as the months go by (think beyond just holiday gifts, too!).
- Head to StarRegistry.org
- Click on the ORDER NOW tab
- Name Your Star
- Choose your Constellation (horoscope)
That’s how you get the ball rolling for buying a star for someone in your life. I personally love that you can name it anything you want. Think creatively and think unique, too. Or maybe it’s something as simple and beautiful as your family name. The name can be anything you want it to be.
The cool thing is that when you name a visible constellation star, you receive a five piece gift kit including a PDF certificate with your own personal dedication message.
The kit includes the exact co-ordinates for your star allowing you to locate it in the sky and search for it any time in the central star registry.
How much does it cost to buy a star?
It’s only $34.99 to buy a star. That’s pretty amazing, right? So when you hear something asking about how to buy a star or how much is it to buy a star, now you can let them know it’s not only a great gift idea but it’s inexpensive, too.
If you want to print and send certificate and star chart by post, it’s $55. You do have the choice and if this is a gift for someone that you are sending, this might be the best option to take. You are able to print everything on your own for the $34.99 option, so keep that it mind!
Once you’ve bought your star, you’re posted on the Central Star Registry and everyone can see your star and the name of it. Your star ID #, the name of your star, the constellation, the Right ascension and the Declination will be posted, too. So really anyone can see your star at that point, which is kind of cool.
How to name a star after someone?
This is now an easy question for you to answer. You can name a star after anyone in the world. The beauty is that you get to decide who you want to buy a star for and what you want to name it. Naming a star after someone is a romantic gift. It says (in many ways) that your love will love forever in the sky and in the stars.
This is a great gift to buy a boyfriend or girlfriend or spouse. It’s a wonderful surprise gift that they probably aren’t expecting and it would be cool to catch them off guard with this awesome gift. They couldn’t guess this gift if they tried!
It’s also a great family gift, too. It’s something that will live on forever. Whether you’re gifting to your family or another family, it’s a special surprise. For the holidays this year I named a star after my kids. I decided to make it pretty easy for myself and named it McClelland-Kids.
I knew if I went with an acronym my kids would wonder what it meant, so I wanted to go with something super simple and meaningful. Can’t go wrong with McClelland Kids! They are all of my shining stars and I wanted to make sure they always had one shining in the sky!
Here is our personal star registry. Whenever I want, I can look it up. My kids can look it up, too and they will have this forever. I just think it’s cool to look up in the night sky and know that somewhere up there is the McClelland-Kids star. I might not be able to pinpoint it, but I know it there.
If you’re looking for a fun gift, this is it. If you’re looking for a special gift, this is it. If you’re looking for meaningful gift, this is it.
