10 wacky Star Wars gifts we want for Christmas
It’s definitely no coincidence that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is coming out at Christmas time, but with all the amazing memorabilia that’s coming out around the movie, who are we to complain?! Our Christmas wish lists are now pretty much sorted, thanks to these remarkable innovations that bring the Force to every (Sky)walk(er) of life. So forget your two front teeth this Christmas, and get your hands on some of these irresistibly wacky items instead:
The Death Star Heel: £275.00 @ Irregular Choice
Show Darth Vader who’s boss by stomping on his head wherever you go! These limited edition, high-fashion heels from our favourite footwear boutique Irregular Choice will have your friends ‘sith’ing with envy. Check out their site for the full Star Wars range, including lightsaber stilettos and Yoda wedges, but get in quickly as these are selling fast!
R2-D2 Bento Box and Sandwich Stamp: US$19.99 @ ThinkGeek
R2-D2 was always our personal favourite, but now he can be filled with food?? That’s a whole new ballgame! This bento box is exponentially cooler than the particularly embarrassing red lunchbox with a mountain on it that I suffered through school with. Oh, and it comes with a handy gadget that stamps the outline of the Death Star onto slices of bread. Too much.
X-Wing Knife Block: £49.99 @ Find Me A Gift
We’re not quite done in the kitchen yet (in fact, we’re rarely not in the kitchen – that’s where food is)! This razor-sharp knife block is on point, and currently on sale at Find Me A Gift. And what better gift is there for someone you love than a collection of sharp, shiny knives shaped like a starfighter?
Stormtrooper Oven Mitt: US$14.99 @ ThinkGeek
The slogan ‘Come to the Dark Side, we have cookies’ has never rung so true. Give your baking a hand with this wonderfully realistic Stormtrooper oven mitt, made from super thick silicon to keep those no-nos and boo-boos at bay.
AT-AT Imperial Walker Pet Costume: £15.99 @ HalloweenCostumes.co.uk
Turn walkies into Imperial Walkers with this incredible jumpsuit and hat combo for your pet pooch or massive cat. Look, this glorious greyhound couldn’t be happier to chow down on that delicious dog slop in his shiny new costume! Check out the full range of affordable Star Wars-themed canine costumes, including dewbacks and banthas, at HalloweenCostumes.co.uk.
Han Solo / Chewbacca Reversible Hoodie: from US$109.00, Amazon
Are you more of a Han Solo or a Chewie? Can’t decide? Now you don’t have to, with this wonderful reversible hoodie! So rather than going through your entire closet in search of something to wear every morning, simply ask yourself: am I in the mood to wear the practical navy parka Han Solo wore on Planet Hoth, or a glamorous faux fur Chewbacca costume today? Decisions, decisions…
Darth Vader Shower Head: £20.94 @ Bed Bath And Beyond
Awaken the force every morning with this incredibly creepy shower head. Described as ‘pressure-boosting’, the Oxygenics® innovation comes with not one, not two, but three spray settings, so you can become the master of your shower. So good you’ll soon be inviting friends over just to try out your bathroom. Also available in R2-D2!
Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Ring: £151.77 @ PaulMichaelDesign on Etsy
Carry one of the greatest scenes in cinematic history around wherever you go with this stunningly chic ring from ingenious jeweller Paul Michael. We simply can’t believe this hasn’t already cropped up as a wedding ring on Don’t Tell the Bride.
Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Desk: by commission, Tom Spina Designs
If the afore-mentioned ring isn’t intense enough to reflect your personal brand of Star Wars fandom, why not go all out and welcome this piece of statement furniture into your home? Just imagine the evil geniuses who long to sit in that office chair, gazing down at Han Solo’s poor, carbonite-frozen body.
Chewbacca Seat Belt Cover: £13.49 @ Jigsaw Hearts on Etsy
We’re always told to put safety first, but alas, we’ve saved it til last, with this Chewbacca seat belt cover. Its faux fur lining makes it especially comfortable for long-distance trips – to a galaxy far, far away, perhaps?
Make sure to check out Star Wars: The Force Awakens, starring Harrison Ford, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac, when it hits UK cinemas this December 17th.
