Christmas Star Wars gifts - top 5

Grogu Holiday Plush | $24.99 at the Disney Store

Grogu Holiday Plush | $24.99 at the Disney Store
Best Christmas gift overall - Baby Yoda is basically the face of Star Wars right now, so what happens when you put him in a festive sweater? An unstoppably soft cute toy, that's what. Because it's a Disney Store exclusive, you won't be able to find it anywhere else either.

UK deal: £21 £12.60 at the Disney Store

Tatooine C-3PO & R2-D2 t-shirt | $22.99 at Amazon

Tatooine C-3PO & R2-D2 t-shirt | $22.99 at Amazon
Best t-shirt gift - The twin suns of this desert planet and the two droids who had to slog their way through it are some of the most iconic things in the franchise, so having the moment immortalised (tastefully) in t-shirt form is the perfect Star Wars gift.

UK deal: Currently unavailable (browse for other Star Wars t-shirts at Amazon)

Galactic Snackin' Grogu | $84.99

Galactic Snackin' Grogu | $84.99 $51.63 at Amazon
Best gift for kids - There have been a few animatronic Baby Yoda toys over the last two years, but this has to be our favorite of the bunch. With a wider range of motion and unique responses to accessories that come in the box (like Star Wars-themed snacks you can 'feed' him with), it's a lot more advanced than anything that came before. Make sure you buy extra AA batteries to keep it running!

UK deal: £60.46 £54.99 from Amazon

Lego Boba Fett's Starship | $49.99

Lego Boba Fett's Starship | $49.99 $39.99 at Walmart
Best Lego gift - There's no shortage of choice when it comes to Star Wars Lego, but this one stands out from the crowd because it features one of the coolest ships (and arguably the coolest character) in the saga. Reasonably priced and packing all the fan service you could want, it's a great option if you're looking for Star Wars gifts this Holiday.

UK price: £44.99 at Amazon

Disney Plus gift card (1 year) | $79.99 at Disney Plus

Disney Plus gift card (1 year) | $79.99 at Disney Plus
Best gift card - If the recipient doesn't already have Disney Plus, this is the ideal Star Wars gift. Besides giving access to the entire Star Wars saga of movies, it offers live-action shows like The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series, (you're getting all of the animated shows, too). Just remember, the card won't work if the person already has a Disney Plus subscription.

UK deal: £79.90 at Disney Plus

Christmas Star Wars gifts - under $20 / £20

Grogu with Cookie Funko POP! | $8.78 at Amazon

Grogu with Cookie Funko POP! | $8.78 at Amazon
It's an understatement to say that Baby Yoda is popular, so what better Star Wars gift can there be than this little fella? Aggressively affordable and undeniably cute, it's a great present on a budget that captures why Grogu is so beloved.

UK price: £9.99 at Pop in a Box

Mandalorian Holding The Child Funko POP! | $11.99

Mandalorian Holding The Child Funko POP! | $11.99 $8.78 at Amazon
The Mandalorian and his young, frog-gobbling ward are big favorites these days, as you may be able to tell from the fact that they're so well represented on this page. This version brings both together in a really heart-warming moment that's the perfect Star Wars gift for fans of the show.

UK price: £9.99 at Pop in a Box

Academy Level 1 Lightsaber (Blue) | $15.99 at Amazon

Academy Level 1 Lightsaber (Blue) | $15.99 at Amazon
You can't have a Star Wars gifts list without a lightsaber on it, right? This light-up toy can be extended with a flick of the wrist, and it's compatible with the Academy app as well. While it's not quite as good as the Lightsaber Forge option further down the page (it's flimsier and won't last as long), this is still a fair place to start if you're seeking out a cheap present for a Star Wars-loving youngster.

UK price: Currently unavailable (see Lightsaber Forge at Amazon instead)

Galaxy of Creatures plushies | $9.99 at Target

Galaxy of Creatures plushies | $9.99 at Target
Tying in with the Galaxy of Creatures animated videos on YouTube, these toys are designed in the same style as the Galaxy's Edge plushies (which you can find below). That means they have a distinctly handmade feel that sets them apart from other Star Wars gifts. They're supposed to look like someone in a galaxy far, far away stitched them together from whatever they had available, and that really comes across here. Be aware that they're only available at Target, though.

UK deals: Currently unavailable (see Galaxy's Edge plushies at Amazon instead)

Galaxy's Edge Plushies | From $13.99 at Amazon

Galaxy's Edge Plushies | From $13.99 at Amazon
Designed as in-universe toys that are available from Galaxy's Edge (a Star Wars-themed area at Disneyland and Disney World), these plushies have an adorably handmade look to them that sets them apart from other mass-produced toys. They genuinely feel like someone on one of the franchise's many alien planets sewed them together from bits of felt and stuffing, so they make fab Star Wars gifts for long-time fans.
UK price: £10.99 at Amazon

From a Certain Point of View book | $18

From a Certain Point of View book | $18 $12.69 at Amazon
Save 30% - Containing 40 short stories set during the first Star Wars movie, this book is a genuinely excellent companion to the saga many fans will have missed. Featuring the best and brightest authors and some fantastic ideas that focus on unseen perspectives, like that of the captain whose ship gets boarded at the film's opening, it's a must-have gift.

UK deal: £9.99 £8.19 at Amazon

Star Wars: Light of the Jedi (The High Republic) | $16

Star Wars: Light of the Jedi (The High Republic) | $16 $12.78 at Amazon
Save 20% - This is the first novel in a brand-new Star Wars storyline set hundreds of years before the films, and it's pretty great. Besides offering all the adventure you'd expect from a series like this, it also provides a glimpse at the Jedi before they lost their way in the prequel movies. There are plenty more books and comics that continue the storyline after this one too, so you have some easy follow-up gifts if needed.

UK deal: £9.99 £8.19 at Amazon

Christmas Star Wars gifts - under $50 / £50

Disney eGift Card | $25+ cards available at the Disney Store

Disney eGift Card | $25+ cards available at the Disney Store
Because Disney is the home of a galaxy far, far away, getting a gift card so the recipient can buy whatever they want from the official Disney Store is a good shout as far as Star Wars gifts go. They'll then be able to choose from a broad range of clothing, toys, and collectibles, and you can decide exactly how much you want to give thanks to card values ranging from $25 to $100 (or more, if you really want a gift they'll never forget).

UK: Currently unavailable

Tropical Stormtrooper t-shirt | $22.99 at Amazon

Tropical Stormtrooper t-shirt | $22.99 at Amazon
Many branded t-shirts verge on tacky, but not this one. It's a fun way of showing off your fandom without feeling like you're a walking advertisement, and this is an excellent present for the fashion-conscious Star Wars fan as a result. Worried it won't fit the bill? Browse the official Star Wars t-shirt range at Amazon for more options.

UK price: £17.99 at Amazon

Tatooine C-3PO & R2-D2 t-shirt | $22.99 at Amazon

Tatooine C-3PO & R2-D2 t-shirt | $22.99 at Amazon
Few Star Wars locations are as iconic as Tatooine, so immortalising it as a t-shirt is an amazing choice when it comes to Star Wars gifts. That tasteful fill design is genuinely beautiful too. A class act all 'round, this one.

UK deal: Currently unavailable (browse for other Star Wars t-shirts at Amazon)

The Child with Lights Christmas sweater | From $37.95 at Amazon

The Child with Lights Christmas sweater | From $37.95 at Amazon
'
Ugly' Christmas sweaters are always a lot of fun, and this one is right on the money if you're looking for festive Star Wars gifts; it strikes a great balance of Holiday cheer with references to The Mandalorian show. And hey, if this one isn't quite right, you can always check out the other Star Wars Christmas sweaters on Amazon.

UK price: From £36.76 at Amazon

Grogu Holiday Plush | $24.99 at the Disney Store

Grogu Holiday Plush | $24.99 at the Disney Store
What happens when you combine one of the cutest characters in all of Star Wars with the most wonderful time of the year? A cuteness overload, as proven here. Featuring Baby Yoda in his Christmas best (complete with a fluffy little scarf) and a festive pouch to keep him in, it's one of the more delightful Disney gifts we've seen on our travels this Holiday. However, don't think this is just Grogu stuffed into a yuletide sweater; thoughtful design touches like snowflake patterns made out of white Mandalorian helmets help it stand out. It's a must-have.

UK deal: £21 £12.60 at the Disney Store

The Black Series: Darth Vader | $22.99 at Amazon

The Black Series: Darth Vader | $22.99 at Amazon
Few villains are as iconic as Darth Vader, so being able to get the Dark Lord of the Sith for your shelf, desk, or toybox ranks highly amongst Star Wars gifts. Based on the character's appearance in The Empire Strikes Back, this is a phenomenally detailed figure that somehow manages to be rather imposing despite only weighing in at six inches tall. The Star Wars Black Series is known for its detailed miniatures, but this takes things to another level.

UK price: £34.99 at Amazon

Lightsaber Forge (Luke Skywalker) | $31.76 at Amazon

Lightsaber Forge (Luke Skywalker) | $31.76 at Amazon
Designed to be interchangeable with other Forge products, this range offers an opportunity to mix and match pieces in order to create your very own, unique lightsaber (it lights up and offers all the appropriate clash/'vroom' sounds, too). This one is based on the weapon carried by Luke, Anakin, and Rey, and because it's arguably the most iconic item in the franchise, any young fan would be thrilled to have this Star Wars gift.

UK price: £21.99 at Amazon

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS4/Xbox One) | From $27.60 at Amazon

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS4/Xbox One) | From $27.60 at Amazon
Save 5% on the PS4 version - We've had our fair share of Star Wars video games over the last few years, but few can match this one in terms of storytelling or action (as we pointed out in our Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order review). It's a brilliant addition to the saga and is well worth playing for fans, so we can't recommend it enough if you're after cool Star Wars gifts. It's available on both PlayStation or Xbox, so double-check what they have just in case you get it for the wrong system (note that this game is compatible with PS5 or Xbox Series X as well).

UK price: From £14.99 at Amazon

Lego Boba Fett's Starship | $49.99

Lego Boba Fett's Starship | $49.99 $39.99 at Walmart
Save $10 -  With the esteemed bounty hunter getting his own show on Disney Plus at the end of December, it's no surprise to see Boba Fett enjoying a fresh wave of merch to go with the series. This offering from Lego remakes his ship as it appeared in The Mandalorian, and it's surprisingly affordable considering how iconic the craft is. You're getting minifigures of Boba Fett himself and the Mandalorian too, which is a nice bonus.

UK price: £44.99 at Amazon

Christmas Star Wars gifts - under $100 / £100

$84.99

Galactic Snackin' Grogu |  $84.99 $51.63  at Amazon
Save $33 - Baby Yoda has charted a path of ruthless world domination when it comes to merchandise, and for good reason: he's freakin' adorable. When combined with this version's wider range of motion and his many accessories, even the strongest heart should melt. Whereas previous animatronic toys just lifted their arms and wiggled their ears a bit, this one has context-sensitive reactions that allow it to 'levitate' the show's silvery gearshift toy, feed on a delicious/gross octopi broth, close its eyes, move its mouth, and wobble those sail-like ears. It's also been given a slightly more cartoonish makeover so should be an especially popular Christmas Disney gift with younger fans.

UK deal: £60.46 £54.99 from Amazon

Lego Darth Vader Helmet | $69.99

Lego Darth Vader Helmet | $69.99 $55.99 at Amazon
Save 20% - Want a cool Star Wars collectible that's awesome but doesn't break the bank or take up too much space? This fits the bill. Standing at over eight inches, this Star Wars gift is impressive. Most impressive...

UK deal: £59.99 £49.99 at Amazon

Lego Star Wars The Child | $79.99

Lego Star Wars The Child | $79.99 $63.99 at Amazon
Save 20% - 'Baby Yoda' steals the spotlight once again, this time in Lego form (as you can probably see by now, the little green alien is a fairly big deal). Besides providing a really cute toy or shelf ornament, putting the whole thing together is a fun Christmas morning activity that can be shared with loved ones.

UK deal: £69.99 £52.50 at Argos

Disney Plus gift card (1 year) | $79.99 at Disney Plus

Disney Plus gift card (1 year) | $79.99 at Disney Plus
For those of us who leave the present-buying a bit late, gift cards like this one are beyond helpful. Arriving as a code instantly at an email address of your choice, it can be scribbled into a card or printed off if you'd prefer. The recipient will then be able to get 12 months of the Disney streaming service once they've redeemed it, giving them access to every single Star Wars movie and TV show. That makes it one of the best Star Wars gifts of the lot, particularly if the recipient hasn't seen The Mandalorian yet. Just make sure they don't have a Disney Plus membership already; otherwise, the card won't work.

UK deal: £79.90 at Disney Plus
