Updated on January 29, 2015

Buying a special gift for your near and dear ones, every time can lead to loads of headache. Now, most of the people have almost everything according to their interests. When the idea for some unique and innovative gift comes, we usually feel at loss and end up giving the same things; everyone gives to everyone else. How about choosing a distinct and eternal novelty gift that will last forever? Naming a Star is a special and unique gift you will cherish all through your life and further times to come.

NASA has many special name and purchase a star programs, in which you can buy your own star and get it named after your loved one. There are various websites now available, where you can buy a star online, get it registered and you get a certificate of proof for the global star registry for the name of the star over the person you want to.

One website, which works on this program and also donates 25% of every transaction for charity is the Star Foundation Network.  The site helps you in checking how to name a star after someone and comes up with various packages.  You can choose the one that suits you, name a star after somebody you want and then check out.

It is extremely simple to purchase a star through this network. Just name a Star in the sky after any of your near and dear ones. The person who receives this beautiful gift will always find warmth and love, knowing that they can look up at the sky and feel being a part of the universe. Buying a star can be a perfect, distinct and extra-ordinary gift for various occasions like birthdays, wedding anniversaries, Christmas, Valentine's Day, memorials or any other occasion.
