Do you want to be the favorite guest at an upcoming wedding or birthday bash? If so, check out this unique gift-giving idea which doubles as home décor.
Greater Skies is a company that creates “star maps” capturing exactly how the stars were aligned at a specific time and place. According to the company, they can create an accurate depiction of how the stars and constellations looked at any given moment dating back to 1900.
This is such a fun wedding gift idea—especially if the couple happened to get engaged on a starry night. Of course, you’ll have to talk your way into getting all the details about the time and location. Getting a friend’s birth location and time might be even more of a challenge, but that’s also part of why this is an amazing gift idea: it’s incredibly personalized and shows that you care about the details.
A star map would also make a unique focal point for a child’s bedroom—especially for kids who are fascinated with all things related to outer space. What better way to remind kids that the world got a little brighter the moment they were born?
The process to order a star map is fairly straight forward once you get to the company’s website.
- Visit the website and click on the “Create Your Star Map” button.
- Enter the time and location for the moment you want to capture.
- Decide whether you want to order a print and high-resolution files to download or just the download option. (Whether you decide to order the print or not, those downloaded files are going to save the day if this is a last-minute gift idea.)
- Add a caption, if you want one, and decide whether you want the map to include constellations and star names.
- Checkout and download your files.
If this is a gift, presentation is key. Be sure to select the proper frame. You could also include the digital files in a fun thumb drive.
If you will be using the print in your own home make sure you hang it well using an appropriate method for the combined weight of the print and frame.
