… a stargazing gift is a great way to go.

As for choice, you’re spoilt for it. From posters to clothing, from educational globes to telescopes, the options are limitless. And then, of course, there’s the ultimate space gift: a star.

Now obviously, you can’t pluck a star from the sky and deliver it to your loved one in a gift-wrapped box. But what you can do is just as special. You can name a star in their honor. As gifts go, you’ll struggle to find anything quite so unique, or so thrilling. Oh, and if you are new to stargazing, Redfin has an awesome guide for beginners.

Imagine it… every time your loved one looks up at the sky on a clear night, they’ll know that a little corner of it is carved out in their name. Good luck at finding a box of chocolates that matches up to that…

The ideas don’t end there. Coffee mugs that remind your stargazer of the cosmos, tote bags that let them take their passion on the go, stargazing kits that bring the stars that little bit closer… the list goes on.

Whether you’re buying for a relative on the other side of the world, your next-door neighbor, or your star obsessed dad, astronomy gifts are the perfect solution. After all, who isn’t just a little bit fascinated by the mysteries of the universe? Who doesn’t look up at the sky on a clear night and wonder at its beauty?

The world around us is incredible. Astronomy gifts package up that wonder, letting us experience the marvel of the universe in a way we’d never expect to. Best of all, they offer an answer to that age-old dilemma of what to buy for the person who has everything.

Let’s face it, buying gifts isn’t always easy. Some people are picky, others already have everything they could ever need. If you’re tired of ransacking the stores trying to find that special something for that special someone, the answer could lie in the stars.

No matter who the recipient is, no matter what their age, their occupation, their hobbies, or their politics, astronomy gifts are guaranteed crowd-pleasers.

Star Gazing Gifts for Everyone

Star gazing gifts… fascinating, maybe, but who exactly would be interested in them? Actually, more people than you might think.

If you’ve got a child, you’ll know that the best way to nurture their imagination and develop their interest in the world is to give them gifts that feed into their interests. Obviously, not every child is fascinated by the natural world. But most are obsessed.

The stars, the moon, the sun, and the planets are a source of constant fascination to young minds. If you’ve got your hands full with a would-be astronomer, an astronaut-in-training, or a science fiction fanatic, star gazing gifts are the perfect present.

But why stop at kids? Our imaginations might get a little creaky with age, but we never lose our wonder at the universe. Does your dad spend his nights with one eye glued to the telescope? Does your partner prefer camping out beneath the stars to staying in a swanky hotel? Does your grandad still talk about the moon landing? If they do, they’re by no means alone.

Ultimately, age isn’t a barrier to our curiosity about the world, nor to our appreciation of its beauty. And that’s exactly what makes star gazing gifts so perfect. Their appeal isn’t limited by age or gender. They’ll please a 70-year-old just as much as a 7-year-old; a grandmother just as much as a son.

Stargazing gifts appeal to everyone – that’s the beauty of them. Irrespective of age, gender, race, religion, or creed, star gazing gifts just WORK. More than that, they’re unique.

How many times in your life has someone bought you perfume, clothes, wine, or chocolates to celebrate a special occasion? Too many to count? You’re not alone. And it’s understandable. Gifts like that are safe. No one’s going to be bought to tears of joy over a bunch of flowers, but no one’s going to hate them either. But who wants safe when you can have extraordinary? Stargazer gifts are exactly that.


Star Gift Ideas for Your Star Gazer

Are you in need of some star gift ideas for a special occasion? Maybe you’re searching for a gift for a retirement or a birthday. Perhaps you’re just looking for a way to say ‘I love you’ or ‘Thank you.’
No two occasions are the same, and neither are any two people. Fortunately, there are enough star gift ideas to match any occasion and any person.

After all, astronomy brings us together. Regardless of where we live, what we believe, or who we vote for, the magic and the mystery of the universe connects us. That’s why space gifts are such a great solution to so many different gifting needs.

If you know someone who can’t get enough of the wonders of the world, there’s no end of space gift ideas to consider. Bring the cosmos to life with one of these great gifts.


Name A Star Gift Package

Let’s start with the big one. A ‘name a star’ gift package is the ultimate star gift idea and one that’s guaranteed to leave the lucky recipient with a very big smile on their face.
What’s so great about it? Where do we start…

First and foremost, there’s the ‘wow’ factor. There’s nothing boring or ‘samey’ about having a star named after you. It’s a once in a lifetime gift that appeals to anyone and everyone.

After all, you don’t have to have an encyclopedic knowledge of the universe to appreciate the beauty of the night sky. And you don’t need an ego the size of a planet to get a thrill knowing a little portion of it is carved out in your name.

Secondly, there’s the thought involved. A gift is more than just a gift, after all. The thought that goes into choosing a gift is just as important as the gift itself.

A bottle of perfume might be nice, but it doesn’t ‘say’ anything about the person you’re buying for. Neither does it say anything about how you feel about them. A star in their name, on the other hand, speaks volumes.

Dedicated Stars offer several different ‘name a star’ packages to suit any budget and any occasion. After you choose a package, you can make it even more special by adding one of these great star gift ideas to your order.


A Personalized Mug

Does your star gazer love coffee? If they do, treat them to a personalized mug to accompany their ‘name a star’ gift package. Every time they pour themselves a cup of morning joe, they’ll get a little reminder of their star.

A Phone Case

If your stargazer is never without their phone, they’re going to be over the moon with a personalized phone case. We offer a great looking phone case that makes the perfect complement to your ‘name a star’ package. As well as keeping their phone safe, it’ll remind them of the wonder of the universe every time they make a call.

A Pillow

Whether it’s for a bed, a sofa, or a chair, a personalized pillow will add some starry wonder to your loved one’s decor. Add one to your order for the snuggliest star gift in the cosmos.

A Star-Gazing Bag

Your star gazer can’t spend their entire life looking up to the skies, no matter how much they want to. Fortunately, they don’t have to. A personalized shopping bag with the name of their star emblazoned across it lets them carry the constellations with them wherever they go.

Star-Gazing Gifts for Every Occasion

The Perfect Gift

Astronomy and stargazing gifts might be uniquely personal, but they’re also oozing with universal appeal. We’re all fascinated by the universe, and we all want to feel special. Astronomy gifts tick both boxes to spectacular effect. If you’re looking for the perfect gift, take some inspiration from our star gift ideas… they’re guaranteed to make any occasion or celebration go with a bang.
