Shopping for the perfect, awe-inducing present is an underappreciated art. No one wants to give their best friend the kind of present that ends up stuffed in the hall closet to collect dust. We want to watch friends and family unwrap the gifts that make them smile, and laugh, and ask, “Where did you even find this?”
It’s even more fun to give gifts that speak to someone’s passions and interests. Most of the world has seen that sci-fi classic Star Wars, and with the increased popularity from new movies and TV shows, it’s easier than ever to find the perfect present for the people who love the franchise.
Out of This World Star Wars Gift Ideas
If your intended gift recipient is a big fan of a galaxy far, far away, these gifts for Star Wars fans will make you cheerfully reply, “Well, I picked it up on Coruscant, just for you!” Here’s a list of Star Wars gift ideas for the space cowboy or galactic princess in your life.
1. A Little Pampering
If you’re looking for unique Star Wars gifts for the makeup collector in your life, look no further than the collaboration between Star Wars and Her Universe. The fandom fashion company offers an eyeshadow and highlighter palette, as well as lip colours. They also have a Chewbacca grooming kit for your Wookiee pals.
2. A Fashion Statement
The number of t-shirts featuring Star Wars art and quotes probably reach the thousands, but a discerning fan might enjoy expressing their enthusiasm more subtly. Nixon’s themed watches make great, understated gifts for Star Wars lovers. Or for a business casual gift, check out one of ThinkGeek’s Resistance approved polo shirts!
3. An Objet d’Art
Small mementoes of a favourite character or scene from Star Wars can spice up a boring cubicle at work or a bland apartment wall. Pick up a Princess Leia wobbler from Funko for that friend who needs a little reminder to channel that Carrie Fisher-fueled pluck at the office. If you need a gift for the classic Star Wars aficionado, order a piece of vintage-inspired Star Wars art.
4. A Kid’s Companion
The young and young-at-heart can both appreciate the simple joy of something huggable. Present your padawan learner with a Chewbacca and Porg backpack so they’ll never be without their favourite bowcaster-wielding Wookiee. You can also go for the classic plush with a Porg that flaps its wings and makes sounds!
5. A Jedi-Approved Gadget
Everyone’s got that one friend who always forgets to charge their phone. If yours just loves R2-D2, give them an astromech car charger! Complete the set with an R2-D2 USB wall charger as well. The best gifts for Star Wars fans (and anyone else, for that matter) are the practical ones, after all!
