At one store, I was drawn to a lovely oak, curio cabinet. After spotting this item of furniture, I instantly knew I wanted to display my extensive doll collection in it.

Three Gifts To Give When You Dedicate A Star To Someone

by Eli Schmidt

Dedicating a star to someone special in your life is one of the more unique gifts that you can give. Suitable for a wide range of occasions, this gift will give the recipient the thrill of going out, looking at the night sky, and wondering which star is honoring him or her. When you dedicate a star for someone, you get a certificate with information about that star, but it's often ideal to pair this paperwork with another suitable gift. Think of something that works well with the star theme. Here are some suggestions.

Star Jewelry

An appropriate gift to give alongside the paperwork that indicates that you've dedicated a star is a piece of star-related jewelry. The person can wear the jewelry when desired and be reminded of your special gift. Star-shaped earrings are a good choice, but a star-shaped pendant on a necklace can be another idea to consider. Another idea to think about is a bracelet with one or more star-shaped charms on it. Regardless of the specific piece of jewelry that you select, this can quickly become a favorite item in the person's jewelry box.

Star Cookie

If you want to go in a completely different direction, consider buying or baking a large star-shaped cookie—perhaps one that is several inches from point to point. This can be a suitable gift if you're dedicating a star to a young person or perhaps to someone of any age who is known for his or her sweet tooth. One of the nice things about this gift is that you can get the bakery to write a special message on the cookie in icing, so you can think of a sentiment that is appropriate to the overall gift of dedicating the star.

Star Ornament

Star-shaped ornaments are common, especially for decorating the Christmas tree. If you look in specialty shops, you'll have no trouble finding a special star ornament that stands above what generic ornaments the recipient may use on his or her tree. You don't have to only give this gift around the holidays. The person can use his or her star-shaped ornament in a variety of other applications in the home, regardless of the season. For example, he or she could hang it in a window, off a houseplant, or elsewhere. You can even get the back of the ornament engraved to reflect the occasion of the gift.
