Valentine's gift ideas for beloved stargazers

Updated on February 7, 2013

You are my Star!

I am going to name a star after my husband, my only Valentine!

When looking for a perfect Valentine's day gift for my husband I came across this wonderful idea that I would warmly recommend to anybody, who is desperately looking for the ultimate gift for their loved ones.

This is a truly unique gift idea

Name a star in the sky for your loved one this Valentine's day.

Give a unique gift that will be theirs forever.

Buy your Valentine a Star!

The International Star registry has been offering these unique Valentine's day gifts for almost 30 years for people around the world.

Your Star with custom extras

Heart shaped pendant

The International Star registry offers also in their star package this beautiful bracelet with an engraved heart shaped pendant. Customise it with your sweetheart's name and the coordinates of the star that is named after her, or him. The pendant is Sterling silver, weighing over 30 grams and it is perfect for a necklace or charm bracelet. If the heart shape feels too much, they also offer a round shape pendant.

I think I may be giving my husband the heart shape one to fit it to his keyring!

Somewhere, something incredible

You can find your Celestron NexStar 8SE Telescope here

This Christmas my husband gave me this wonderful telescope to replace an older one. As it is controlled through my laptop I do not have to hassle anymore when looking for a particular star. I just point the telescope to true North, feed the coordinates through the laptop and voila! It is just amazing! This is one of the best presents ever.

I would recommend this one for any avid stargazer! If you are interested, have a look at the details by clicking on the image or the link above.

Find your Carson 350mmTelescope SV-350 here

If the Celestron NexStar 8SE Telescope is too demanding or pricey for you the Carson 350mmTelescope SV-350 is a good entry level telescope. Easy to use and would definitely beat the bear eye gazing when looking to see the star you just named after your sweetheart. You can see the details by clicking on the image or the link above.

      Stargazing is what we usually do on the occasion of Chinese new year. The idea is cool, thumbs up!

      My aunt got this one year as a Christmas present and loved it. My husband said he would not one however. I think it is a great idea for those that love astronomy.

      Thank you for the lens. My husband and I also stargaze whenever we can get out of the city.

      I think using your laptop computer to control your telescope is a wonderful idea!
