Best Gifts for Star Wars Fans

With the holiday season coming up soon, you can get ahead of the rush by starting your holiday gift shopping now. And if there’s a Star Wars fan in your life, we’ve got a selection of gift ideas for them to brighten their holiday with the power of the Force.

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar — $30, was $40

What could be more seasonal than a Star Wars-themed advent calendar? This calendar contains a mini Lego figure for all 24 days of Christmas, including six Lego minifigures, six Lego figures including the utterly delightful Darth Vader in a Christmas sweater, and 12 mini Lego build toys like a teeny-tiny Millennium Falcon and an adorably miniature X-wing. It’s suitable for kids, but frankly, plenty of adults would be delighted by a little Lego toy for each December morning as well.

Star Wars Death Star Waffle Maker — $40

Make your mornings a bit more intergalactic with a Death Star waffle maker. Because who wouldn’t want delicious breakfast waffles in the shape of the ultimate evil superweapon? Pour in your waffle batter, close the lid, and open after a few minutes of cooking time to reveal a waffle imprinted with the iconic design of the Death Star.

Baby Yoda Collectible Figurines — $13, was $16

The Child stole all of our hearts when we watched The Mandalorian, and now you can get your very own pair of Baby Yoda figurines. These adorable figures are 2.2 inches high and show the Child enjoying a hearty bowl of soup and wrapped up in a warm fuzzy blanket, just as we’d all like to be this holiday season. There are other variations of our favorite adorable alien available as well, including a two-pack of Baby Yoda chomping down on a frog and using his Force powers, and another pack of him using his big sad eyes to ask you to stay and playing with a part of Mando’s ship that he just won’t put down.

Lego Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker Millennium Falcon Starship Model Kit — $160

Is there any greater joy than waking up on a holiday morning and unwrapping a Lego Millennium Falcon? Surely that’s only topped by spending the entire day building it and playing with the cute tiny Lego figures. This built-it-yourself model comes with seven Lego figures including Finn, Chewbacca, Lando, and Boolio, as well as the essential robot friends of C-3PO, R2-D2, and D-O. And the ship itself has features like rotating gun turrets, spring-loaded shooters, a lowering ramp, and an opening cockpit.

Baby Yoda ‘The Child’ Animatronic Edition — $50, was $60

If you can’t get enough of Baby Yoda then you can get a life-size animatronic toy to cuddle and pet to your heart’s desire. This 10-inch-high figure makes cute burbling and cooing sounds and has motorized movements including moving head, ears, and eyes. If you pat him on the head three times, he’ll raise his tiny hand to use the Force. And once he’s done exerting himself with his Force powers, you can lay him down and he’ll take a nap.

Star Wars R2D2 Popcorn Maker — $100

If there’s one thing that every movie night needs, it’s popcorn. So next time you’re planning a Star Wars movie night with friends, you can wheel out this super cute R2-D2 popcorn maker to fit the theme of the evening. When you’re not using him, R2-D2 stores away looking like a model of the friendly droid from the original movies. But when you’re ready to pop some popcorn, you can lift off his head to use as a popcorn bowl. The popcorn machine uses hot air to pop the kernels rather than oil, so it’s a healthy snack, and the bowl and machine are easy to clean.

Star Wars Mystery Box — $40

If you like a surprise or you’re looking for a gift for someone who loves all things Star Wars, then this mystery box could be the item you’re after. Inside the box are four items: A knit hat, a pin, a mystery figure, and a comic book, all based on characters and events from the Star Wars franchise. This is a fun way for Star Wars collectors to add some new items and some mystery to their collections.
