5 ‘Star Wars’ Stocking Stuffers That Are Strong With the Force

HolidayGiftGuide revisedWith Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening just one week before Christmas, you don’t have to be attuned to the Force to know that merchandise from a galaxy far, far away will be some of this holiday season’s hottest gift items. And while we love a remote-controlled Sphero BB-8 Droid as much as the next fan, there are also many smaller, less expensive gifts that any fan of Star Wars would love to see in their stocking this Christmas. Here are 5 of the best stocking stuffers that you can buy for the Star Wars fanatic in your life.

1. Star Wars Lightsaber Pen

Is the pen mightier than the laser-sword? Obi-Wan Kenobi called the lightsaber “an elegant weapon for a more civilized age,” which is why we think he’d also approve of the pen version of this Jedi weapon. After all, what could be more civilized than writing a stern letter to your opponent instead of, say, severing their arm in a cantina brawl? You know, just to cite a random example from the Star Wars saga, Ben. You can find the Star Wars Lightsaber Pen here.

Space battles have never looked more fun, thanks to this collection that reimagines all of the main vehicles from Star Wars: The Force Awakens as plush toys, including the Millennium Falcon, Poe Dameron’s X-Wing, a Star Destroyer, and a TIE Fighter. You can tell everyone you’re buying them for your kid, but we all know these spaceships are going in your cubicle. Because there’s no better way to prove to the annoying Trekkie in your office that Star Wars is the superior sci-fi franchise than by incessantly pummeling them with a plush Millennium Falcon. You can find all four Star Wars Episode VII Plush Vehicles right here.

4. Star Wars: The Force Awakens soundtrack

Star Wars: The Force Awakens doesn’t hit theaters until December 18, which means the home video release of the film probably won’t be available for at least several months after that. Fortunately, the soundtrack for The Force Awakens will be available for purchase the same day that the movie is released. Featuring music composed by the legendary John Williams, The Force Awakens soundtrack is guaranteed to make your Christmas morning sound more dramatic. You can find the Star Wars: The Force Awakens soundtrack here.

5. R2-D2 Snow Globe

Nothing captures the spirit of the holiday season quite like a snow globe. And for Star Wars fans, there’s no better snow globe than one that features everyone’s favorite diminutive droid (sorry BB-8). Shake it up and watch R2-D2 as he stoically delivers gifts while wearing a Santa hat in the midst of a Hoth-like blizzard. Good thing droids can’t get frostbite! You can find the R2-D2 Snow Globe right here.
