The best gifts for ‘Star Wars’ fans

Star Wars: A New Hope

Star Wars is one of media’s most enduring franchises, thanks in large part to its consistently solid releases. Fans in this notoriously toxic fandom will never agree on the very best Star Wars offering, but hype surrounding recent and upcoming releases — like May’s Obi-Wan Kenobi — are stirring up renewed interest in the franchise.

No major holidays are lingering around the corner, but forward-thinking shoppers may already be looking ahead to this year’s festivities. If you’re hoping to track down the perfect gift for the Star Wars fan in your life, consider some of these stellar giftables.

The best gifts for Star Wars fans

Star Wars fans can be a challenge to shop for, if only because they’ve already snatched up every bit of commonplace Star Wars merch on the market. Once you’ve ticked off all the obvious options, however, there is still a wealth of potential gifts floating around the web. Here are, in our opinions, the very best. 

In the pricer range

Not everyone has hundreds of dollars to spend on their favorite Star Wars fan, but the few that do have some impressive options to choose from. You’ll want to save up for these, but any Star Wars die-hard would absolutely drool over these gift options.

The entire DVD set

I know, I know. I said I wasn’t going to include anything too obvious on this list, but it would feel a bit criminal not to include the movies the entire fandom is based on. You can snag up this truly impressive collection of films — which includes the entire Skywalker Saga, from Anakin’s prequel trilogy through to Rey’s conclusion — from Amazon for a surprisingly reasonable $79.99 for the Blu-ray editions. If you want to upgrade a bit, you can instead dazzle your lucky recipient with the same collection in 4K, but it’ll run you nearly $200.

Jedi Challenges AR headset and lightsaber control

This awesome setup is an excellent gift option for anyone, whether they’re a Star Wars fan or not. Rather than shell out the $300 or so required for an Oculus Quest, gamers interested in trying their hand at AR can check out this far cheaper Star Wars-themed option for less than $150. Plus, the Jedi Challenges headset layers a Star Wars experience over whatever background you’re enjoying it in, allowing users to feel like they’ve transported Storm Troopers into their very own living room.  

The Rise of Skywalker D-O interactive droid 

Whether you’re enjoying it as a delightful desk companion or racing it around your kitchen floor, this interactive droid from 2019’s Rise of Skywalker is a stellar gift. Reviews on Amazon note that it’s got a bit of a learning curve, and has a tendency to tip over, but with some practice this little droid could be your Star Wars fan’s favorite time-killer. This charming little droid has the added perk of costing less than $60 on Amazon.

Remote control Millennium Falcon quad

Any Star Wars fan would trip over themselves to get the opportunity to fly their own mini version of the Millennium Falcon. This fantastic remote controlled quad lets you do just that, providing users with the chance to try their hand behind the controls of the galaxy’s most famous ship. This quad, which sports stunning retro aesthetics, is also an absolute steal. It’s currently sold out at Amazon, but typically runs less than $80.

You can pack Star Wars into every second of your day with this breakfast-oriented Star Wars gift. For less than $50, you can whip out some Millennium Falcon-themed waffles for your next morning meal, or dazzle guests with a breakfast treat shaped like the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. 

LEGO Millennium Falcon: Collector’s Edition

It may come as a shock, considering this list contains AR setups and kitchen appliances, but we have officially reached the most expensive gift option on this list. Selling for a whopping $799 on Amazon, this LEGO building set is an absolute beast. The collector’s edition provides an impressive 7,541 LEGO pieces to work with, along with figurines from both the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy. It’s certainly not a cheap option, but any Star Wars fan would be blown away by this spectacular LEGO set. 

Death Star popcorn maker

Another Star Wars appliance to beef up your kitchen, this Death Star popcorn maker is a must-have for any Star Wars fan. For just under $60 you can enjoy fresh popcorn via perhaps the best popcorn maker in the galaxy. When it’s not in use, this item has the added perk of packing up into a tidy little Death Star that can easily be displayed on a counter as an attractive addition to your kitchen decor. 

Death Star cheese board & tool set

This gift is a perfect pairing of Star Wars and music, blending the two into a single, useful piece of decor. You can choose from a wide range of different designs, most of which cost less than $50, and typically feature any number of moments or characters from the Star Wars franchise. 

R2-D2 Instant Pot

This adorable R2-D2 Instant Pot manages to be both delightful to look at and thoroughly useful, all at once. Any adult with a taste for cooking will find use for an Instant Pot, so why not make it Star Wars? The R2-D2 version operates in the same way as any other Instant Pot, but the Star Wars version is far more stylish, and will typically sell for just under $100. For only a few bucks more than the plain silver version, why not upgrade the experience? 

Inexpensive Star Wars gifts

Not every Star Wars fan has the money to throw down on a pricey gift option, so we compiled a second portion to our list. These gifts are just as fun, useful, and entertaining as the above options, but are far less likely to break the bank.

Metal Earth Star Wars models

The crafty Star Wars fan in your life will absolutely love the opportunity to try their hand at these intricate little models. The Star Wars Metal Earth selection is nice and robust, allowing you to buy up and craft any number of famous Star Wars ships in your down time. You can also purchase a special kit to make the process easier, and slowly allow tiny metal creations to take over every inch of available space in your home. Each model runs between $13 and $30, or you can buy a pack of them for around $60.

Star Wars door mats

Another addition that comes with numerous options, these Star Wars door mats are the perfect upgrade for each of the exterior doors in your home. You can choose from a range of different designs to find the perfect coy reference or amusing quip for your style, or simply lean into the utterly adorable allure of little Grogu. The vast majority of Star Wars door mats will run you $30 or less.

Who doesn’t love a good game of Monopoly? Even better, you can try your hand at this Star Wars version of the classic game, which promises to let “players relive all 9 episodes from a galaxy far, far away.” The game allows players to buy up iconic planets and Droids, and replaces the classic houses and hotels with Tie fighters and X-wings. It’s a steal for less than $30 on Amazon. 

R2-D2 Tamagotchi

Tamagotchis are back! Anyone who survived the dull, smart phone-less days of the late 90s and early 2000s well remember these addictive digital pets. They faded from popularity when smartphones became a mainstay in our day to day lives, but are experiencing a resurgence that millennials are very much behind. You can enjoy the Tamagotchi experience with a Star Wars twist with these very affordable R2-D2 Tamagotchis, which max out at $20 but often sell for as little as $15.

Star Wars phone cases 

Pretty much everyone has a phone these days, and most phones need a case to keep them safe from damage. Why not make it a Star Wars case? Amazon has a lengthy selection of different designs, from retro stylings to far more modern, artistic looks, and the majority of them clock in at less than $20.

Star Wars: Galactic Baking

Once you venture into the realm of Star Wars cook books, you’ll never find your way back out. Any number of recipes can be altered into stunning Star Wars creations, but some of the best are contained within this charming little cookbook.

Whether you enjoy this item for its listed use or for *ahem* other activities, it will definitely come in handy.

You can go for the entire pack — which includes eight separate molds — for a very reasonable $35.99, or you can buy up individual molds based on your specific preference.

Baby Yoda Plush

The astounding popularity of the Mandalorian’s Baby Yoda makes this addition an absolute necessity for fans of the big-eared Foundling. Grogu was an instant crowd favorite when he debuted in the first episode of the Mandalorian, and this charming little plush lets you enjoy him for yourself. He is soft and solid, and reportedly great for cuddling, and will only run you $20.
