Top 10 Gifts For Star Wars Lovers


Welcome to GetMojo, where we do the research so you don’t have to! In this video, we’re offering our picks for the 10 best gifts for Star Wars lovers on the market.

The “Star Wars” fandom is huge, in every possible way, and that makes navigating its galaxy of gifts pretty overwhelming. I mean, where do you even start! Do you buy someone a mug, or do you go for a really niche collectible? Well, not to worry - if you’re a “Star Wars” gift padawan, we’re here to help. And if you didn’t understand what we just said, all the more reason for you to keep watching. We’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.

The Stormtrooper Cosplay

Star Wars Imperial Stormtrooper Electronic Voice Changer Helmet


Whether you’re planning on attending Comic Con in cosplay, or you just want an awesome ornament for your office, this Imperial Stormtrooper helmet is an incredibly cool gift. This full scale Stormtrooper helmet replica is super detailed and features a voice changer function that allows you to reel off your favorite movie quotes and sound like a Trooper while doing so. So, if you’re buying this for someone at home, be prepared to hear “blast them” constantly echoing through the halls.

The App-Controlled Droid

Sphero BB-8


R2-D2 may be the original OG, but watching BB-8 roll around is pretty satisfying. And with this app-enabled BB-8, you can control this droid's actions with your smartphone from up to 90 feet away. This gyroscopic RC is compatible with apps for both iOS & Android, and it boasts a 60-minute battery life off a single charge. It even comes with a cool charging dock, which boosts battery via induction charging.

The Lightsaber

Star Wars The Black Series Darth Revan Force FX Elite Lightsaber


For those aware of the wider “Star Wars” universe - and the legendary video game “Knights of the Old Republic” - Darth Revan is undoubtedly one of the coolest names out there. And you can now own his lightsaber! This thing is unbelievably cool. Not only does it have a display stand, a metal hilt, a ton of sound effects and a removable crystal, but it also changes color from red to purple. It even has a feature that changes color when you strike something, simulating a realistic saber hit!

The Waffle Maker

Star Wars Deluxe Millennium Falcon Waffle Maker


If you want to add a bit of flair to your kitchen countertop and your waffle game, then why not let Han and Chewy help you out with this Millennium Falcon waffle maker. This thing features tons of the ship’s most famed details, like its off-center cockpit, sensor dish and of course, its disc-like body. And for added convenience, the waffle plates are non-stick for easy clean-up.

The Handy Trooper

Exquisite Gaming Cable Guy StormTrooper Controller and Device Holder


From a starship to a humble desk buddy! This Stormtrooper device holder is ideal for those who always have their phone, game controller or any other small device lying around their desk or bedroom and need a home for it. Standing at eight inches tall, this holder has a weighted base for added stability and cupped hands to hold your appliances. Although you can mount devices on it for fun, it’s perfect for if you need to charge something, as it’s out the way, but easily accessible if you need it.

The X-Wing RC

Air Hogs Poe’s Boosted X-Wing Fighter


If you want to reenact an attack on the First Order, then this black and orange remote controlled X-Wing fighter - popularised by Poe and BB-8 - is a fun way to do so. This fighter has dual rotors to give you added control and is built to be able to withstand minor crashes for increased durability. We like the simple-to-understand controller with this fighter too, which makes it a breeze getting to grips with the controls.

The Background Read

“Star Wars: The Jedi Path” and “Book of Sith” Deluxe Box Set


Watching the movies is one thing, but if you want to deep dive into the Star Wars story, then some background reading on the Jedi and the Sith is a must. This collection of books gives insights into the training and legendary tales of both the Jedi and Sith. These stories, tips and legends are also accompanied by commentary from the likes of Darth Vader, Mace Windu and Yoda. And there are even two exclusive prints thrown in too.

The Saber Sticks

Chop Sabers Light Up Lightsaber Chopsticks


Here's proof that anything can be made cooler with lightsaber attitude! These battery-operated, LED, light-up chopsticks can be specified in a wide range of colors - from Jedi blue to Sith red, or even something more niche like Jedi Sentinel yellow. Okay, so you might not want to use these in your local restaurant, but they definitely make an awesome at-home accessory. May the sauce be with you!

The Cool Mug

Benair USA Lightsabers Star Wars Mug


Sometimes, the right mug is all it takes to win someone over - and for a “Star Wars fan,” this lightsaber mug is hard not to love. This heat changing mug features 13 of the most iconic lightsabers from the saga - including Yoda’s, Obi-Wan Kenobi’s and Luke Skywalker’s. The coolest feature, though, is how the blades of the lightsabers appear when hot liquid is poured in. The Force is strong with this one.

Before we reveal our final pick, here are a few other great products that you might want to consider:

Hasbro Gaming Monopoly Game: Star Wars 40th Anniversary Special Edition


Star Wars The Black Series Boba Fett Premium Electronic Helmet


Philips Norelco Star Wars Storm Trooper Wet & Dry Electric Shaver


The LEGO Splurge

LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Millennium Falcon Expert Building Kit and Starship Model


The word “ultimate” is in the title for a reason. For many “Star Wars” fans, this will be the Holy Grail of LEGO sets. Boasting a whopping 7,541 pieces, this pricey, premium Millennium Falcon will put your LEGO master builder skills to the test. Featuring everything from the Falcon’s lowering ramp, blaster cannons, cockpit, engineering station and escape pod hatches, you’ll feel like you’re assembling the real thing. The hull panels of the ship are removable too, so you can closely examine the interior once built. There’s even a bunch of mini figures - like Han, Leia and C-3PO - thrown in too!

So which “Star Wars” gift should you choose? Well, there’s clearly a distinction here between cheap and cheerful vs. hardcore collectibles, so be sure to buy accordingly. If it’s the wow factor you’re looking for, then it has to be the LEGO set, but if you want something super affordable — yet still impressive — something like the Disney+ subscription or Cable Guy Stormtrooper are great picks.
