Holiday Gift Guide 2019

For the hardcore Star Wars fan, Disney Plus is a must thanks to The Mandalorian, the new Star Wars series starring a Mandalorian bounty hunter after the events of Return of the Jedi. The Mandalorian is exclusive to Disney Plus and will be available to stream from day one on November 12. Yearly subscriptions cost $70, which represents a $14 savings over month-to-month plans. It also lets you stream all of the Star Wars films save for Solo and The Last Jedi. That of course lets you watch the original trilogy before diving into The Mandalorian, and lets you catch up on most of the Star Wars movies before The Rise of Skywalker.
Captain Phasma Nerf Gun
Though it’s almost impossible to look as cool as Gwendoline Christie does portraying Captain Phasma, this $45 Nerf gun makes for a one of the more awesome Star Wars gifts that isn't a lightsaber. The bolt-action Blaster has five glow-in-the-dark darts and fun sound effects. It’s the perfect gift for kids who want to play out their favorite scenes from the movies.
Star Wars Episodes 1-6
The original trilogy and prequel series all in one place, including audio commentary from George Lucas and others for each film. All told, you get more than 40 hours of special features with this $82.50 Blu-ray box set, which is a must-have for any Star Wars fan.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Respawn’s hotly anticipated action game takes place a few years after Revenge of the Sith. In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, you play as Cal Kestis, a Jedi Padawan who wants to get as far away from the Galactic Empire as possible (can’t blame him). Fallen Order launches November 15 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. To see all of the pre-order bonuses and special editions, check out our Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order pre-Order guide.
Chewbacca Electronic Mask
Roar like Chewbacca with this awesome Wookiee mask. All you have to do to mimic Chewie’s sounds from the movie is open your mouth like you’re actually going to roar. Since the sound could annoy you, this is one of those things that’s perfect to buy for nieces, nephews, grandkids--kids that don’t live with you. At $32, it’s a small price to pay to become a Wookie.
Death Star Waffle Maker
How many kids can say that they destroy the Death Star every day? Well, with this Death Star Waffle Maker from ThinkGeek, the Death Star will get devoured with ease. Plus, the $45 Waffle Maker has an understated, classy design, so it won’t look weird alongside other appliances.
Boba Fett Mandalorian Backpack
With The Mandalorian primed to be one of the biggest shows this fall, there’s obviously going to be a ton of interest in Mandalorian-themed school supplies. Rugged and featuring a bunch of neat little pockets, this officially licensed Mandalorian backpack is super slick. It has a laptop compartment that fits 15-inch laptops. This is a $60 backpack that could work well for several school years.
Luke Skywalker FX Lightsaber
It’s not custom-built like the ones at Galaxy’s Edge, but this is still a collector worthy replica of Luke Skywalker’s Star Wars lightsaber, complete with movie sound effects and realistic lighting. When not swinging it around, it’s a great decorative piece thanks to the included stand. At $150, it’s pricey, but you’re getting premium quality here.
Wampa Bean Bag Chair
An extra cozy addition to a game or TV room, this massive Wampa bean bag chair from ThinkGeek is an absolute unit. The price matches the size at $150.
R2D2 Coffee Press
Your favorite droid can brew your morning cup(s) of coffee now. The R2D2 French Press makes four cups of coffee at a time. When not brewing coffee, it doubles as a cool decoration. The price is right at $39.
The Star Wars Archives
The Star Wars Archives is the definitive book about the original trilogy. Volume one covers 1977-1983 and takes readers on a journey through the development of what would soon become a worldwide phenomenon. Narrated by George Lucas himself, the 604-page oversized hardcover has never-before-seen looks at the script, concept art, photography, and much more. It’s an expensive book at $129, but think of it has an oral history of Star Wars from the man who created it.
Star Wars Monopoly 40th Anniversary Edition
The 40th Anniversary Edition of Star Wars Monopoly uses scenes, ships, and characters from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. This edition of Star Wars Monopoly is by no means the first to be made, but it is the most novel one. While $60 sounds like a lot, Monopoly is a game that seems to be passed down from generation to generation.
Star Wars: A New Hope Shopper Tote
Help save the environment with this $10.29 recycled tote bag perfect for groceries. Plus, it has the original movie poster for A New Hope emblazoned on the front of the bag.
Wampa Snack Bowl
Wampa’s a hungry boy and has eaten all the snacks. Luckily, he can’t close his mouth and you can scoop snacks straight from his head. In all seriousness, this bowl is the ideal popcorn holder when watching that Blu-ray box set we mentioned earlier.
Star Wars Arcade Cabinet with Riser
Like Star Wars and arcade cabinets? The new Star Wars cabinet from Arcade1UP is a stunningly beautiful machine. The 5-foot machine (with riser) uses the original arcade artwork. It includes three arcade games: Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. The 17-inch display is splendid, but the star is the flight yoke and controls that are designed to mirror the feel of playing these classic arcade games. The craftsmanship and attention to detail makes the $500 price understandable.
Star Wars: A New Hope Wallet
You probably know someone (maybe it’s you) who needs a new wallet. Why not pick up this $10 Star Wars: A New Hope-themed wallet? Every time you reach for your credit card, Darth Vader will glare at you.
Star Wars Chewbacca with Porg Back Buddy
Chewbacca is cute, and Porgs are even cuter. Both can be strapped to your back. Chewbacca’s bag can hold small items for you, but the Back Buddy is largely for show. The listing on GameStop includes this gem of a line: “Who needs real friends when you have a Chewie on your back?” Nailed it.
LEGO Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Millennium Falcon
Name a more iconic space vessel than the Millennium Falcon. This 1,351-piece LEGO set is ideal for young Jedi to build either solo or with the help of an adult. Elaborately detailed, the finished build is mightily impressive and display shelf worthy. This model reflects the Millennium Falcon as seen in the upcoming Rise of the Skywalker film, making it a timely holiday gift. The set also features a mix of old and new characters: Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, Finn, BB-8, C-3PO, Boolio, and D-O. The set can be purchased at Amazon for $159.85.
Kylo Ren Electronic Mask
Not everyone wants to play the bad guy, but it's hard to deny the awesomeness of Kylo Ren's mask. This replica version has a sound-controlled FX light that illuminates when speaking while wearing it. Unlike the Chewbacca mask, this is a good one to get for your own kids, as the noise will be their angelic voices, not Wookie wails. Grab the Supreme Leader's mask at Amazon for $31.49.
