Greater Skies: An Original Star Map

AD- I received a gifted item from Greater Skies in exchange for review. All thoughts remain my own.

Today I am very excited to share a brilliant gift-giving site, Greater Skies. This site allows you to create your own original star and constellation map, showcasing what the sky looked like at a specific time or date that is very important to you.

This site allows you to choose your own date, customise your map, and decide whether you would like a digital or print download. Greater Skies can create a star map commemorating any date and any time, so you could choose the day you got married, your sibling’s birthday, or even the day you graduated from University.

I love this idea, and I think it’s such a special and original gift idea for any occasion. When it comes to birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings it’s always lovely to commemorate those dates or memories that are special to you and your loved one- and the fact that this can be accessed as a digital gift makes this all the more accessible during these tough times.

I am a massive fan of everything to do with the stars and lunar patterns- and these maps are so gorgeous! I was so lucky to be gifted a star map by Greater Skies, and I chose to commemorate the day my sister was born, in January 2007. I gifted her the map as a going back to school present this week, but this site is the perfect place to find a gift for any occasion.

If you fancy giving someone a gift for Easter, or you’re still trying to find the perfect belated Mother’s Day present- the digital version of these maps can be ready and downloaded instantly!

I found the process for creating the map super quick and simple. Greater Skies shows you how to choose your frame, design, date, and time- and you can also add your own personal message to the map. This means that your gift is always unique to you and your loved one.

I really recommend checking out this site for a range of designs and ideas for your next occasion, and you can customise your gift as much as you want to make it really original.

I think at some point I will order the print version of my map and get a frame for the design, as it’s a great way to commemorate a birth date and keep as a memento of a special time- and it’s also super pretty!

  1. Oh my gosh, I love this! I have always wanted one of these types of print and have always said if I ever got married I’d love to have this to commemorate the day. The print looks gorgeous!

  2. These look absolutely great! I have always been fascinated by stars and constellations and my sisters got me one of those stars that you can name for a certain time for my eighteenth birthday. I think it would be a lovely idea for them or my mom, thanks for sharing x

  3. I have been looking at these recently because I’ve just redecorated and I want to get one with the day my husband and I got married & stars have been a massive part of our marriage and proposal!

  4. This is really cool! I love stuff like this. I have heard of it before, and I think I will do one someday. I would probably do my wedding date or my kids’ birthdays. My favorite unique gift is to have a star named after someone. I haven’t done that yet either, but would love to!

  6. Star maps are just wonderful! I’ve always meant to buy one, we’ve just never had the space to hang it but I think you’ve encouraged me with your post. Maybe I’ll get one as an anniversary gift for my husband…

    Thank you so much for sharing your review and for reminding me of how awesome star maps are! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Oh wow I absolutely love stuff like this. When we get engaged, I originally wanted to get the stars from that night made and printed but now I think I’ll save it for a wedding keepsake!

  8. Omg, I love this! Iโ€™ve never heard of anything like this for a gift before. My favourite date with my girlfriend was a camping trip under a starry sky and this would be the perfect gift if I can find out the date we went!
