Alternative Easter Gifts

27th March 2020

With Easter coming up and many of us being in isolation, it begs the question, “What can I get my partner/my children/my siblings/any family member for Easter?”. The shops are closed, restaurants and deliveries are limited. While chocolate Easter Eggs are the traditional gift for those of all ages (I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate?!), sometimes it’s good to go a little extra for the Easter celebrations, after all, Easter is known as being the perfect time of year for new beginnings and fresh starts as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus following his crucifixion.

Choose the perfect constellation for your Name A Star Easter Gift

As it is Easter, I guess it is only appropriate to include a little guide on constellations suitable for an Easter gift. Naturally, when you first think of Easter, new life and animals come to mind, so keep reading for more on constellations that will make your name a star Easter gift perfect.

  1. Lepus – The Hare.

    Lepus is constellation just below the celestial equator and can be visible from the Northern Hemisphere in the winter months! Lepus is the perfect constellation for Easter as it represents the Hare, a type of rabbit and what is one of the first things that come to mind when you think of Easter?! The Easter Bunny!

  2. Cygnus – The Swan.

    Cygnus is a Northern hemisphere constellation that lies on the plane of the Milky Way. If you are located in the Northern hemisphere, Cygnus can be seen in the Summer and Autumn months and is easily spotted thanks to being one of the most recognisable constellations due to featuring the prominent asterism, the Northern Cross! Again, this constellation is perfect for Easter as Cygnus represents the Swan, one of the purest and most beautiful animals.

  3. Ursa Major – The Big Dipper / Big Bear

    The Big Dipper is one of the most popular constellations for those in the Northern Hemisphere thanks to its distinctive shape and bright stars while being circumpolar, which means that it can be seen in the sky throughout the entire year. It is especially prominent in the Spring / Easter months with prime visibility being approximately 9pm throughout the month of April.

  4. Ursa Minor – The Little Dipper / Litter Bear

    The Little Dipper is offspring to the Big Dipper, making it the PERFECT constellation for Easter. Easter is all about new life, new beginnings and purity. When you think of Easter, I am sure that not only does the story of Jesus’ resurrection come to mind, but the image of bunnies, chicks and all things babies come to mind! Just like the Big Dipper, Ursa Minor is also a circumpolar constellation that can be seen all throughout the year!
