Name A Star

Looking up at the night sky and seeing the star twinkling against the velvet blackness can be awe inspiring.  Now you have the chance to actually name one of those stars, leave you name, a child’s name or that of a loved one.  Of course you could even give the gift of naming a star to that person themselves, so that they can name the shimmering light personally.  

With the gift pack you are entitled to name a unique star with the Intergallactic Star Database.  Once you have chosen your name and filled out your registration, your star can not be renamed or reallocated without your consent.

The pack includes:

  • Welcome Letter
  • A4 Star Area Coordinates Sheet, which is a fantastic chart showing your stars’ location
  • Guide to the Northern Constellations book, this is a wonderful beginners guide to what you will see in the nights sky.
  • Map of the sky showing the northern and southern hemispheres and their constellations.
  • Personalised certificate that includes your star name, unique database number and constellation.

This is an unusual and exciting gift to give anyone who has an interest in space!

Become a Laird or Lady

Do you know someone who has always held a strong belief that they should have a title that conveys more about them than just Mr, Mrs, Miss, Dr or any of the others that we use?  Well now you are able to bestow upon them, (feeling like Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II in the process), the title of Laird or Lady.  Whilst not equal to the English aristocratic titles, Laird, (and Lady in this instance) is a title that means landowner in Scotland.  So how does it work?

The gift pack includes everything you need to give you loved one the feeling of superiority over all beneath them:

  • Welcome letter
  • Your gift explained
  • Gift registratiion form
  • Life as a Laird or Lady booklet
  • Dunans Castle: A History leaflet
  • Dunans Castle poster
  • Once registered you also receive
    • Laird or Lady certificate
    • Proof of Title card
    • Directions to Dunans
    • A tour for two around the castle and a visit to your plot of land.

What does it actually mean.  Well, your loved one will own a square foot of land in the grounds of Dunans Castle, in Scotland.  You have the scottish landowner title for life and it can even be inherited and you can rest safe in the knowledge that your gift helps restoration efforts at the castle.

Available from buyagift for £14.99
