With the imminent release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans’ excitement is growing at a rate close to lightspeed. But while pretty much everybody loves Star Wars in some capacity, we’ve all got that one friend/loved one whose adoration for the franchise is larger, even, than a planet like Tatooine.
The question is, what do you get the most die-hard of die-hard Star Wars fans as a present? We’ve scoured the galaxy for the ultimate offerings. And while Chewbacca and Co don’t celebrate Christmas, if they did then these out-of-this-world gifts would surely be top of their lists.
1 Han Solo in Carbonite Vinyl Sticker Door Wrap
Livens up any drab living room. If being bought as a romantic gift, make sure your loved one really is a true fan first. Otherwise you might just find it slammed in your face. Available from Amazon for $73.99 plus $5.99 shipping.
2 The Great Pit of Carkoon’s Sarlacc…In Your Toilet
No better way to while away your time sitting on the toilet than by pretending you’re Jabba The Hutt on his throne as Boba Fett falls into the Sarlacc. Aim right, and you might be able to make an authentic gurgling sound too. Costs just $25.
3 Star Destroyer Wall Decal
Because there’s nothing quite as homely as having an absolutely massive Star Destroyer on your living room wall. $109.99 from Fathead. Also available: Death Star, Yoda, Princess Leia, etc.
4 Death Star Waffle Maker
For a taste that explodes in your mouth. $39.99 from Think Geek.
5 R2D2 Trash Can With Pedal-Powered Lid
Referenced perfectly here, this pedal-bin is the ideal repository for space junk (or crisp packets, pizza boxes etc). $249.95 from Amazon.
6 Illuminating Death Star Beach Ball
It lights up on impact with water and, just like the real thing, has to be blown up. Just $9.99 from ThinkGeek or $19.99 from Amazon.
7 ‘It’s A Crap!’ Toilet Seat Stickers
A particularly nerdy one, and particularly rare, too, as they’re only on sale in the UK. The stickers costs £5.10 (about $7.70) plus postage (around $4.60 to the US) from Etsy. Click here if you don’t get the joke.
8 Death Star Ice-cube Maker
The galaxy is pretty chilly, after all. $4.00 from Amazon.
9 Star Wars Caps
So realistic that people will actually think you’re C-3PO. $55.99 from Lids. Lots of others (pictured at the top of this post) are available too including Stormtroopers, R2-D2 and Darth Vader.
10 Star Wars Dog Costumes
Ewoofs. The Bark Side. Star Paws. Chewbarka. Dogs dressed as Star Wars characters will never get old. Various prices from Official Star Wars Costumes and Petco.
11 Darth Vader Toaster
Don’t have a droid to make your breakfast? This is the next best thing. Actually burns ‘Star Wars’ on to the bread. Cue Dark Side of the toast jokes. $39.99 from Think Geek.
12 Yoda Backpack
Probably even more realistic than the C-3PO cap. $39.99 from Think Geek.
13 There’s Also A Chewbacca One
Obligatory Chewie noises to be made by you. $71.86 from Amazon.
14 Darth Vader/R2-D2 Shower Heads
Because there’s no better song to hum in the shower than the Imperial March. Available from Bed Bath & Beyond for $29.99 for Darth Vader and $24.99 for R2-D2. Also on Amazon for $69.95 for Darth Vader and $63.88 for R2D2.
15 And Finally…
You can’t actually buy this Millenium Falcon toilet seat and lightsaber plunger. But if you were a true Jedi, you’d be able to make it happen. Via Star Wars Daily.
