Give A Gift That Is Out Of This World! A Modern Map Art Review

Modern Map Art Custom Star Map Gift Idea

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing the amazing night sky map poster that I am giving to my nephew Aiden for his first birthday. Even though he is too young to appreciate it now, the poster will make a great keepsake and it will look so awesome in his nursery. When I was contacted by Modern Map Art to collaborate for this post, I had the option of creating a star map to commemorate any special day or event.

Since Aiden will be turning one in October, I thought the star map would make an “out of this world” gift! *I received this poster from Modern Map Art.Com  for review. All opinions are my own. Affiliate links have been added for your convenience.

It is so hard to believe that sweet Aiden will be turning one soon! It seems like just yesterday that I held him for the first time. This auntie is totally smitten!



I wanted to check with my sister first to make sure she had a spot for the map. As it turned out she had already been thinking of ordering a map so she was so excited. I let her pick the size and she chose a 16×20.  Modern Map Art allows you to fully customize your poster by including the date of birth, place of birth, and GPS coordinates. This information is used to create a map that shows the exact formation of stars at the time of birth. How cool!


This sweet little guy is a shining star!  He is a bright light who brings happiness to everyone who is around him.


I love that his personalized star chart is unique and special, just like him!



In addition to place of birth, location, and time of birth, you may also customize a star map by choosing different colors, sizes and fonts. You may also customize the sign with a special quote or phrase.

I love how Shea at The Fogue Abode used a quote from the book “On The Night You Were Born.” I am also giving Aiden that same book for his birthday to go along with his poster! She also shared how to make a picture frame. I love how the star map looks in the a wood frame.

In addition to star maps, Modern Map Art also offers city, state, and lake map art, customizable shirts, map pillows, typography prints and even iPhone cases.

I was excited to receive the star chart within just a couple of days of ordering it. It was shipped in a cardboard poster container and arrived in perfect condition. As an added plus, Modern Map Art  provides free US shipping on all purchases.


I took the poster to Hobby Lobby and found an inexpensive 16×20 poster frame just to use for this post. My sister is going to make a wooden frame for the poster which better matches the style of Aiden’s nursery and I can’t wait to see how cute it looks in his room!



The poster fit in the frame just fine, but with all the glare I took it out the glass so I could get some clearer photos.





The force is strong with Aiden! His current nursery has a woodland animals theme, but our entire family loves Star Wars so I am sure he will eventually have some Star Wars decor in his room as he gets older. The star chart will look great in a Star Wars room!


We are all looking forward to celebrating Aiden’s big number one! I am happy to give an “out of this world” birthday gift to a special boy who is truly amazing and out of this world! When the poster is in the new frame and hanging in his nursery I will share some photos on my social media.


If you are looking for unique gifts or special home decor, check out all the great designs at Modern Map I love the look and quality of Aiden’s poster, and I will certainly consider purchasing other star maps in the future. I am thinking about ordering a star map pillow for my teen son. He loves astronomy, Star Wars, and lounging around, so a star map pillow would make a fun gift.


I hope this post has given you some new gift ideas or decor inspiration using map art. Thank you so much for visiting today!
