1. Name A Star
There is nothing more beautiful and romantic than a bright sky full of twinkling stars, and now you have the opportunity to name them after you – how cool is that! When you name a star with Starling you receive a certificate, map and software in a beautiful presentation folder – and depending on the package chosen you can also get a high quality colour photo of your star and your choice of constellation. We absolutely love the idea of two stars side-by-side (£99) which can then be named after the happy couple. This is truly a gift that will last forever.
Prices start at £39 for a standard package http://www.buyastar.co.uk/name-a-star

Why not balance all the indulgence of your wedding gifts with something that is truly ethical and can transform someone else’s life – a gift to charity. There are so many options here – sponsoring a child in need, adopting a snow leopard, Teaching A Teacher or a regular donation to Amnesty International to name a few. We love the idea of forsaking a gift to help others, so why not give people this option – you know you want to…
