Under Lucky Stars: A Review of A Personalised Star Map


Under Lucky Stars is a company that creates personalised Star Maps, which shows the alignment of the stars above you at a moment in time special to you. All you have to do is visit their website and start creating and I challenge you to try and narrow your special moments down to just one! Or, you can do what I did, and get lost in stargazing for well over a hour!

When I designed a Star Map, I thought about all the special moments my fiancé and I have had together and I remembered our last weekend as a couple (before Pumpkin arrived and we became a family). We had planned a romantic weekend together and “surprise surprise” Pumpkin decided to make an early appearance and share the weekend with us! So, I chose our Star Map to reflect the moment our little star said hello! The result? See for yourself, it’s really beautiful and is a constant reminder of when our lives changed forever!

The challenge for me now is knowing where to hang my Star Map, it is currently stood on our mantle piece in the front room, as I am struggling to find the right home for it; I want to show it off, as I am really love it!  However, part of me also wants to hang it in our bedroom, but then Pumpkin’s bedroom has a star theme and so, I guess it’s going to go in Pumpkin’s bedroom!

I’m sorry to break it to you, but once you have finally decided on the special moment you want to base your Star Map upon, you have some more decisions to make: The title of your Star Map, and the Footnote (and not forgetting what font you want this to be in!), and then you have the style of your Star Map to choose from (there are 9 to choose from), oh and then you have the size of your Star Map! I settled for navy and white, and it looks fantastic!

Star Maps start from $55 unframed to $115 (Framed) and are currently available in two sizes: 18 x 24 inches (457 x 609mm) and 24 x 36 inches (609 x 914mm), Under Lucky Stars print their Star Maps on excellent quality smooth art paper too, so you can be assured your print will look great.


Under Lucky Stars, Star Maps make really thoughtful gifts for loved ones, I recently included it in my Valentine’s Day gift guide, as think Star Maps are really thoughtful and romantic gifts! Likewise, they are perfect for any occasions, such as Mother’s Day, or a wedding present to show the stars aligned on the happy couple’s day.
