Christmas Gift Ideas for Star Wars Fans

Sunday, 13 December 2015

With the fast approach of The Force Awakens release date and with Christmas on the horizon, it seemed like an appropriate time to do a gift guide of my own, with a dorkier twist.  I’m calling this a gift guide, but to be perfectly honest it’s as much of a wish list for myself as a gift guide for Star Wars fans.  What can I say?  I’m a sucker for merch.  Of course, this is only a tiny fraction of some of the amazing finds out there at the moment - even your standard supermarkets are stocking some awesome Star Wars stuff right now in preparation for the new movie!

So, if you'd like a bit of inspiration for gifts to get the Star Wars lover in your life, or you're keeping an eye out for fun merch for yourself, read on!

1. The Vader Pleather Jacket ($65 from Her Universe) is on the more expensive side of things, but how beautiful is it?  The detailing is fantastic and it just looks so badass.  The Imperial logo on the back is killer.

2. I have a few little items of Star Wars origin in my kitchen and I would never say no to more.  The Death Star Worktop Saver (£12 from Debenhams) would look cute as hell, but the only thing that bugs me is that I hate glass chopping boards and worktop protectors.  For someone else though, this would make a great gift.  There are tons of other Star Wars kitchen utensils out there too for fellow geek cooks, from silicone moulds to glasses and kitchen timers.

3. Another ridiculously awesome thing from Debenhams (they're killing it with their Star Wars merchandise lately!) is this fantastic red Darth Vader Christmas jumper (£35 from Debenhams).  They have a green Rebel Alliance version featuring Yoda and some festive Tauntauns too, but my heart always lies with that villain aesthetic.

4.  You can never have too many mugs, and this Captain Phasma mug (£8 from Debenhams) is both really unique looking and a great gift for anyone who is as excited for the new movie as I am and who is psyched to see Gwendoline Christie kick ass in her new role.

5. Key covers are a great little stocking stuffer, and who could say no to the Millenium Falcon and BB-8?  (£5 from Debenhams)  I promise I don't have shares in Debenhams, I just really like all of their Star Wars stuff...

6.  Socks always get a really bad rap as a Christmas present, but honestly I love getting socks for Christmas because I'd usually never buy them for myself, even better if they're fun, printed ones!  You can't go wrong with TIE Fighter and Millenium Falcon socks (£7.50 from Marks & Spencer).

7.  I always love everything on Think Geek and Her Universe but I never order anything any more, because when I do I always end up saddled with customs charges that make just shipping it cost more than the items itself.  Still, I'd be tempted to break my rule to order this BB-8 Infinity Scarf ($24.99 from Think Geek) because BB-8 infinity scarf.

I hope this either gave you a few ideas or helped you find a few things you wanted to add to your wishlist!  I've left it a little late to order anything like this from abroad, but hey, if I get any gift cards or money for the holidays, I know what I might like to spend it on!

Do you have a Star Wars fan to shop for this year?  Have any of the new Star Wars items out there caught your eye?
