Occasions : A Child's First Starry Night

First Night.  Sleep Tight!

The night sky print, showing the moon and stars just as they appeared on a child’s first starry night, with your words – funny, wise, sweet, hopeful, perhaps a favorite quote from a story or song – makes a beautiful keepsake.

It's simple! Give us the date and location. We'll recreate that sky – just as it appeared. Pick a landscape illustration from our extensive catalog to go with the sky (we've got treetops, skylines, rivers, lakes, villages, towns, cities, mountains, beaches ... you get the idea). Add the child's name, and a personal greeting.

See some of the interesting and fun things others have used as messages on their prints below. Check out our gallery of examples to really see what the print is about. Best viewed large.

“One of their favorite gifts!” We hear it often, and feel priviledged to be a part of it. A gift that will be enjoyed every day for a long, long time.

Just Because

The night sky print which arrives for no particular reason, other than to celebrate the gift of love that is your beloved, is cherished like no other.

Birthdays

Each of us has a story that begins in a single moment. Poets and philosophers from Shakespeare to Tennyson, from Moore to Jung, share a common fascination with the night sky at the moment of birth, and the idea that the moon and stars stand in timeless, silent witness to this moment.

Wedding Anniversaries

The night sky print, showing the moon and stars just as they appeared on the night you met, the moment of your first kiss, or your wedding night, is an exceptional anniversary gift. Appropriate for any year, especially so for the 1st anniversary, the year of the ‘paper’ gift.

New Baby

The night sky print, showing the moon and stars just as they appeared on the child’s first starry night, with your words – funny, wise, sweet, hopeful, perhaps a favorite quote from a story or song – makes a beautiful keepsake.
