What is Christmas all about?

That’s right! As long as your heart is filled with that special kind of warmth, you can’t go wrong with Christmas.

As we get older, Christmas seems to be less about getting and more about giving! We want less for ourselves and give more to others – maybe help a charity with a moving mission, perhaps make a grand gesture to a special family member, loved one or tick all of the above. And that is great, because at the end of the day, Christmas is about being and doing good, being thankful and spreading some magic. Well, to be more precise, Christmas is a religious holiday, celebrating the birth of Jesus, but that is often overlooked and rarely mentioned nowadays in some groups & societies..

Maybe instead of frantically buying and swapping meaningless material objects you can spend this year’s Christmas day with the ones that matter most, eating good food, decorating the house and swapping stories about the true origins of Christmas?

Take a moment and think:

  • Do you get a Christmas tree without even knowing why? (Some say the evergreen tree was an ancient symbol of life in the midst of winter, how beautiful is that)
  • Why do we give gifts? To remind us of the presents given to Jesus by the Wise Men: Frankincense, Gold and Myrrh? What else?
  • How is the background of Christmas understood and told in different cultures?
  • Why do we assume that snow and Christmas go hand-in-hand? (We even made a visual with snow, no second guessing there..)
  • What does Christmas even mean?

Dig deep and make it special this upcoming season – have fun discussing and learning about everything that is Christmas! Ponder over different stories and beliefs in cosy loungewear and with a hot cup of cocoa in your hand. Talk about bliss!

And in order to forever remember that day and the people you shared it with, you can get your own sparkling star in the universe, that will always shine light on you and your special little group of loved ones! Take a closer look of what we offer here - http://bit.ly/StarGifts.

Make it fun and get the discussion going amongst your friends and family! Celebrate Christmas like it’s truly meant to be celebrated. It’ll be worth it!

The biggest supermoon in 86 years coming up this November!

It’s time to move our gazes up, folks!

This November brings a memorable celestial event – a Supermoon!  Not just any old Moon, but the closest, brightest and largest full Moon for 86 years!

Visible to most of the planet, so don’t miss this epic lunar spectacle.

The term “Supermoon” is relatively new and describes a full Moon that is closer, brighter and apparently larger than normal.

A full Moon occurs each month when the Sun Earth and Moon line up.  The Moons orbit is slightly elliptical, meaning it’s orbit isn’t a perfect circle.  Occasionally when the Moon is full and its near its closest point to Earth (known as Perigee) it can appear up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal in the sky. “A Supermoon”.

The Moon in November 2016 will be the largest since 1948 and the next time its this close will be 2034!  There will be many more supermoons from now until then, but none of them as close.

November’s full Moon occurs on November 14th.

Why not make a beautiful event of it with your family and loved ones?

Astronomy essentials – do not miss in August!

Every year, August is a very generous month when it comes to Perseid meteor showers and this year it is going to be even more spectacular, producing an even bigger outburst. It is expected to be double the usual amount, therefore twice as good!

Do not miss one of the brightest and most anticipated meteor showers bound to peak on the night of August 11-12. But keep your gaze up before and after that as well, as the meteor showers might go almost throughout the whole month. If all goes well and all the necessary criteria are met, you might even see around 200 meteors per hour!

Stargazing is a truly mesmerizing and romantic event – so make a night of it! Get away from the artificial city lights, find a dark spot in the countryside and get cosy! Perhaps take a trip with your friends and family? People in the Nothern Hemisphere will have the best chance of catching the show!

Make the glorious event even more special by claiming your very own star in the universe! Our Online Star Registry team would be happy to help you with any questions of queries you might have!

Have a magnificent experience!

Buy a star for your loved one this holiday season!

“The earth has grown old with its burden of care, but at Christmas it always is young, the heart of the jewel burns lustrous and fair, and its soul full of music breaks the air, when the song of angels is sung.”

That time of the year is approaching yet again and the countdown has officially begun. Time to start writing lists about what to get for loved ones this year. If you’re in that sticky situation, you probably know already, that Santa is not going to run to rescue with his special list of people who have been naughty and who have been nice. For some, Christmas is the season of spreading love and joy, for others it is a holiday that can not be mentioned. Some of us simply love shopping for presents and coming up with amazing ideas. Others, well.. would love to curl up in a fetal position and wait for the madness to end and the season to pass. The truth is we all love Christmas, for sure, just getting the right present can be slightly frustrating and cast a shadow on the whole season. Every year you promise yourself, how next year you will start thinking and prepping months ahead. E v e r y  y e a r! And of course, nothing changes. And here we are again.

How to beat your gift from last year? Or how to make up for a bad one? We have a one of a kind solution for you at Online Star Registry. We offer something that will last a lifetime, something that is very personal and unique for one particular person. Or for two people to share who have a special bond. By getting your loved one his or her very own star, it will surely overshadow any other gift imaginable. And the good news is you won’t even have to step into a crammed shopping center. We will deliver a star gift kit straight to your door, how great is that!

Christmas craze is coming!

We can’t believe it either! Already and yet again! Store windows and displays are already very festive and cheery. Christmas calendars, socks, toys, candies, trees.. and it is quite true and justified – if you want to avoid the madness, then better think ahead!

What do we offer?

When you order our Star Git, you have the option to choose a a star in a specific constellation. The most popular choice is the Zodiac Star kit. Choose the zodiac sign of the person you are buying the star for to show you put extra thought into making their gift special. Or dedicate it to the Christmas season by choosing the Capricorn sign. And if you are not sure about the zodiac sign or want it to remain a surprise, then the most basic, Standard Kit, is for you.
There is also a Twin Star kit option when you want two people to share the gift together. They may be miles apart here on earth, but they will always be together in the universe by sharing a star.

Also!

Due to the approaching holiday season, we strongly recommend to opt for expedited shipping, when ordering our Star Gifts! At this time of the year the postal services are absolutely beyond swamped and overloaded, and our experience shows that some Star Gifts can take longer reaching its destination, may it be to the United States or to Japan – there is no pattern of logic there, really!

Therefore, around Christmas and New Year’s our estimated shipping times aren’t exactly bulletproof, for reasons that are very understandable. We have a partnership with UPS express shipping company, that has never failed us before!

We would hate to see sad faces around the joyful Christmas season, so please take that into consideration. We only care for our customers and the happy faces our unique Star Gifts bring!

Wedding Gifts for Family & Friends: How much to Spend?

When you get invited to a wedding, your first thought is happiness for the soon to be husband and wife. When the big day gets closer, you start to wonder what to get them as a gift. How much money should you be spending on a wedding gift? Is there a way to spend too much or too little?

A Matter of Etiquette

With weddings, people tend to be particularly concerned about staying within the established rules of etiquette. However, there are generally no steadfast etiquette rules about spending on a wedding gift. It’s certainly advisable to use your budget as a guide and to consider how well you know the couple when choosing a gift, but there is no magic number to aim for.

There is a belief that the amount spent on a gift for the couple should be equal to the amount they are spending on the guest’s meal; however, this is not a valid rule. If everyone followed this guide, brides and grooms could easily be receiving gifts worth $100 – $300 from every couple attending their wedding!

How Much Others Are Spending

Even though there are no real rules in the cost of a gift, there are some averages that you can reference for a general idea about how much you might want to spend on a wedding gift. Spending depends on your relationship with the couple. Do you know them from work? Then the average is $50 – $75. Are they relatives or friends? $75 – $100. If you’re particularly close to the couple, the average is $100 – $150. Again, spending within your budget is an important point to remember when choosing a gift.

Forget About Price

It’s a good idea to not get too wrapped up in the cost issue when choosing a gift. Buy what you think would be appreciated by the couple, and stay within your budget.

Don’t Take It Along

Many people are unaware that wedding gifts are not to be taken to a wedding; instead, they should be sent directly to the bride’s place of residence where the couple can open the gift privately.

Looking for the perfect wedding gift for your newlywed friends or relatives? Buy a star gift kit today.

Budget Friendly Birthday Gift Ideas for Everyone

A great birthday present doesn’t have to be an expensive one. The old adage that it’s the thought that counts is true; someone that is a real friend, or understanding relative, will know that you’re buying them a gift on a budget and will appreciate the effort. With the right amount of effort and thought, you can get the perfect birthday gift within your means.

• Children

The great thing about purchasing a gift for a child is that they tend to be happy with a wide variety of toys and other gifts. Movies are generally inexpensive, so purchasing a DVD for a child is a budget-friendly way to make a child happy. You can find toys that will fit any budget, and toy stores and other retailers often have clearances and sales on their inventory, making toys an even more reasonable purchase for a child’s birthday.

• Significant Other

The first thing you should know when purchasing a gift for your wife or girlfriend is that she will love if you have a small gift, such as flowers or chocolates, sent to her place of work. These don’t have to be expensive, just a small gesture of your love for her. Make sure that a personal note is included. Other ideas include books by her favorite author, stuffed animals, or gift baskets. If you know that she has a special hobby or interest, you may be able to find an inexpensive magazine geared towards her interest that you can subscribe to in her name.

• Personalized

Getting a gift personalized can turn an inexpensive gift into a personal gesture. You can get anything from hand towels to a picture frame and have a name or initials embroidered or engraved, and it is possible to get this done at a low cost.

Birthday gifts don’t have to be a drain on your wallet. There’s something to buy anyone in every price range, so don’t be afraid that someone won’t like your gift just because it wasn’t expensive. As long as you’re thinking about what the recipient might like, your gift will be appreciated.

Show someone you really care by giving them a gift that lasts a lifetime. Register a Star in someone’s name and give them an out-of-this-world gift today!

Gift idea for Mother’s Day!

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”

Washington Irving

Celebrate Mother’s Day in a special way this year by getting a star to the most powerful woman in your life. A mother is one of the fundamentals of life and of course should be celebrated daily, but you can make this year’s Mother’s Day extra memorable!
