Star Wars Gift Ideas
The Christmas season has come and gone, and most of us are just now receiving the credit cards that prove we may have gone a little overboard with our holiday spending. That being said, I cannot think of a better time to start thinking about what to buy the nerd in your life (or yourself) for his/ her birthday or Christmas present this year. Since 2015 will mark the return of Star Wars to the big screen, every Mandalorian, Ugnaught and Ewok, from Dantooine to Hoth will want to prepare themselves with the latest and greatest Star Wars stuff! Below you will find my top five Star Wars related merchandise currently available for sale on-line and at your local comic shop. Please understand that there are hundreds of really neat Star Wars gadgets and gizmos available, but the following are strong with the force in one major way: they are all affordable! Enjoy!
Before she slips into her Leia slave girl outfit and you into your Jedi robe, light a couple of these babies to really set the mood. I think we all know that adding a touch of Star Wars into any romantic encounter is a sure fire way to let that special someone know just how much you care. Remember: nothing is as romantic as Star Wars. $24.99
Due to over-hunting, Star Wars Wampa pelts are pretty hard to come by these days, but that’s okay because now you can buy your very own synthetic version! This rug not only looks like the real thing, it also feels and smells like the real thing too (okay, just kidding – it smells good). This décor piece will certainly start some conversations and would be a welcome addition to any Star Wars fan’s office or theme room. $129.99
I have seen these around for a while now, and still think they are pretty cool. A warm wookie coat, complete with hood and face mask that not only keeps head warm, but actually transforms you into your favourite “walking carpet”. Or perhaps a hoodie that will transform you into R2-D2. $69.99
I just thought this was hilarious. You will be the talk of the town at the next slumber party! A taun taun kept Luke alive when he was down and out; this sleeping bag is sure to also keep you cozy and warm at any sleep over or while braving the elements. And for that real Star Wars feel, simply dump some warm spaghetti inside before you crawl in. $149.99
Okay, these silicone Star Wars molds are pretty simple but I just love them. Dress those drinks up with any one of these highly detailed ice trays. These trays are perfect for Star Wars themed parties or everyday use. Why not throw some fruit juice in and create Star Wars ice treats for the whole family! These are the most inexpensive and practical of the lot. The Han in carbonite is my favourite. Can also be used as chocolate molds….Star Wars never tasted this good! $4.99-$19.99
These are just a few Star Wars pieces currently available at your local comic shop or online. And I think I can speak for Star Wars fans everywhere when I say that any of the above products would be a welcome addition to our collections….hint hint!
