If you really fancy sending a gift that’s really different, this idea could be the one. Lastminute.com sell it as follows:
“Your loved one will receive a framed personalised certificate, giving their star database reference number. This new updated pack also includes an educational astronomy starter kit, with a sky chart and star plotter to help you find the area of your own star. With a RRP of £40, these are only £20 for lastminute.com customers.
Your star name will be recorded within the Intergalactic Star database and allocated with a unique star number from this database. Please note that this is a fun, inspirational gift and scientific institutions will continue to refer to stars by their catalogue number or coordinates only.”
Might be a tad cheesey but definitely an orginal gift idea!
