With fans across the globe itching with enthusiasm for the all-new film Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens to premiere in theaters, you may have some thoughts about giving the geek in your life a Star Wars-related gift this holiday season. The moment you type into your search bar, “Star Wars,” where do you look!? I’m here to help!
Here are the 2015 Top SEVEN Star Wars gifts to give this season:
#VII: An Ugly Sweater
I know my man-friend has been wanting an ugly sweater and of course, there’s plenty of Star Wars-themed ones to choose from! From “I FIND YOUR LACK OF CHEER DISTURBING” to a line of R2-D2’s lined up across your chest, Merchoid has a wide selection to choose from.
If the Star Wars geek in your life is also a LARPer, they’ve most likely heard about this new campaign. Calimacil launched a Kickstarter with the initial goal of $50,000 on November 3rd, 2013. Even though the weapon is not available for purchase yet, I’m placing it on this list for future reference.
On this crowd fund’s final day, patrons pledged over $144,000 to help see this new weapon come to life! The foam lightsaber has LED configuration for different color options and sound effects.
FULL DISCLOSURE: CALIMACIL IS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH LucasFilm LTD, Disney, OR ANY LFL ltd. FILM OR FRANCHISE.
Action figures? Yes. This collectible series of toys are making their way to shelves and quickly disappearing. Featuring characters not only from the new film, but the old as well, these are sure to make your geek’s inner-child come alive! I did see some of the figures at Barnes & Noble the other day incase you’d like to see them in person. The website does them no justice.
#III. Marvel Star Wars Comics
Debuting this year, Marvel has issued new comics for readers to enjoy! Star Wars is currently up to issue #13, while its sub-series, Darth Vader’s 14th issue is to be published on December 23rd, 2015 and Princess Leia is up to issue #5. Chewbacca also has his storyline!
The product description from “EA Games” as follows:

Taking place in the aftermath of the Rebel victory in the Battle of Endor, players will experience the events that created the massive, battle-scarred landscape of Jakku shown in Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™.”

#I. BB-8TM by Sphero
Imagine having your own personal droid, because now you can! BB-8 is an app-enabled robotic with an adaptive personality truly based on your interactions.
