There are so many little moments in time that are really special to me. Pinpoints in time that literally changed my life. Of course the time and date of each of my children’s births but before all that, the real life changing event was meeting my husband.
We met in the summer of 2005 when I had just graduated from university. I went to work in a law firm in Cardiff and he was my boss. It wasn’t love at first sight, in fact we were both dating other people but after a few weeks we both knew we felt something for each other.
We split up with our respective partners and moved in together by the end of the summer. We just knew that it was right between us. A couple of years later we were married with a child and now have two more! I couldn’t imagine my life without him and every year we love to mark our anniversary by giving each other a little gift, nothing expensive but we definitely like to mark the occasion.
This year I have got him this amazing star map print. It shows the constellation in the sky above Cardiff on the date that we first met.
The map print was gifted from a company called Modern Map Art and you can personalise it how you want, different sizes, in different colours, different lettering and wording and of course with different constellations according to your time and date of choice.
They come in a hard cardboard tube and I can’t wait to frame ours, I’ve just taped it up with some washi so I could show you all in pictures but I’m going to buy a nice black frame and it will make such a lovely gift.
Take a look at their website if you would like more inspiration for gift ideas. They also do really cool looking street map art.
Disclosure – we were gifted this print for the purpose of this review. All opinions are honest and our own.
What a wonderful keepsake to remind you of such wonderful memories 🙂 I love things like this and imagine in a frame it will like awesome! Sim x

We love adventures and travel so this would be an amazing alternative to all the globe maps we have dotted about the house. Great idea!
Isn't this such a lovely idea, I've never heard of a star map before but I am going to look into it as I love personalised keepsakes that have real meaning behind them.
My boyfriend got me one of these for our anniversary last year and I absolutely love it as not only does it mean a lot but it looks great x
What a fabulous gift idea - this would be something to treasure forever
That's such a unique way of commemorating a special date, I really love the idea and how easy it is to order your own.
I love these so much a woman I know makes some with the constellations and they are great.
That is such a sweet idea. I think that it would make a great gift for someone as it has some meaning to it.
what a really lovely way to remember such a special time. i love unique gifts
What a lovely way to pinpoint and remember this special occasion in your life! It's going to look great when framed and on display in your home!
