Name a Star Service Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Have you ever wanted to give the stars to someone?
You can, you know! 

There is a great service online where you can name a star after someone you love with Name a Star Inc 

What could be a more interesting gift than this? 

I was asked to review this service, and I got to name a star for someone for free:) I was provided with the following information:

"This product is a name a star service. You will receive a certificate with the persons name you have named the star after with it's co-ordinates. You will also receive instructions how to view the star with google earth, where the recipient of the gift will see a personalized message left by you. A great gift ideal for so many occasions including Birthdays, Xmas, Thanksgiving, Anniversaries, Valentines, Births, Christenings."

I had heard about this service before, but figured it was insanely expensive, so I never bothered with looking it up. I was so wrong. The prices are very reasonable. Under $20 for a gift that will last for an eternity. You can't say that about many things.

So how does it work?

You go online, pick your name, and even a short saying or wish to go with your star. I picked one for my daughter and a cute saying that meant something special to us.She is just a toddler, but some day this will be a really cool thing for her!

It was an easy process. After you are done, you receive the coordinates of your star and how to locate it using GoogleEarth. You receive a certificate that you can print, and for us, this will go in her baby book. 

Sorry, blocked out her name and coordinates;)

It was pretty neat. I love Google Earth too...

I took a screen shot to show what you see. The little pin will tell you where your star is, so you can bookmark it and check it out over and over again. 

Some day when we learn about the stars and planets and what is out there, I will be very excited to let her know that there is a star with her name on it.

Great service. You should definitely take a look!   Name a Star Inc
