Star Wars: Light of the Jedi (The High Republic) | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This is the first novel in a 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 Star Wars gifts if needed.

Grogu with Cookie Funko POP! | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
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.

Galaxy of Adventures Darth Vader action figure | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Buying for a younger fan? The Galaxy of Adventures figures will be right on target. Sturdy and affordable yet of a surprisingly high quality, these figures are the perfect Star Wars gift for little Jedi/Sith-in-training. Darth Vader is just one example of how awesome this range is - despite being fairly cheap, it's steeped in character and brings all the personality of the Dark Lord of the Sith to bear in a fun, cartoony fashion.

Tatooine C-3PO & R2-D2 t-shirt | Check at Amazon (opens in new tab)
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 price: Unavailable (browse for other Star Wars t-shirts at Amazon (opens in new tab))

Galaxy of Creatures plushies | Check price at Target (opens in new tab)

Galaxy of Creatures plushies | Check price at Target (opens in new tab)
Tying in with the Galaxy of Creatures animated videos on YouTube (opens in new tab), 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: Unavailable (see Galaxy's Edge plushies at Amazon (opens in new tab) instead)

Academy Level 1 Lightsaber (Blue) | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Academy Level 1 Lightsaber (Blue) | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
You can't have a Star Wars gifts list without lightsabers 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: Unavailable (see Lightsaber Forge at Amazon (opens in new tab) instead)

Book of Boba Fett Funko POP! | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Book of Boba Fett Funko POP! | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The bounty hunter was always beloved, but he's been bigger than ever recently thanks to the arrival of his own show. This figure shows off his new look with a dynamic pose for an aggressively affordable price, making it a winner of a Star Wars gift for Boba Fett fans.

Galaxy's Edge Plushies | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Galaxy's Edge Plushies | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
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.

Valentines Luke and Grogu Funko POP! | Check price at Pop in a Box (opens in new tab)
Want to show the Star Wars fan in your life that you care? There's a Funko POP! figure for that. Thanks to Luke's pink makeover and the very sweet paper-chain hearts he's holding, this is an ideal Star Wars gift for loved ones.

Mandalorian Holding The Child Funko POP! | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
As you may be able to tell from the fact that they're so well represented on this page, the Mandalorian and his frog-gobbling ward are big favorites these days. Accordingly, getting the pair together makes an excellent Star Wars gift (especially because this version represents a really heart-warming moment from the show).

The Black Series: Darth Vader | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)

The Black Series: Darth Vader | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
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.

Geeki Tikis The Mandalorian mug | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Geeki Tikis The Mandalorian mug | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Star Wars Tiki mugs are some of our favorite themed cups, and grabbing a pair of them would make for an awesome cocktail night. While they all come highly recommended, the Mandalorian one might be amongst the best.

Disney eGift Card | $25+ cards available at the Disney Store (opens in new tab)
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. You can also 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).

Lightsaber Forge (Luke Skywalker) | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
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 lightsaber (as we mentioned in our Lightsaber Forge guide, it lights up with 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.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS4/Xbox One) | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS4/Xbox One) | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
We've had our fair share of Star Wars video games over the last few years, but as we pointed out in our Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order review, few can match this one in terms of storytelling or action. 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).

Lego Boba Fett's Starship | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Lego Boba Fett's Starship | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
With the esteemed bounty hunter getting his own show on Disney Plus, 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.

Geeki Tikis Death Star mug | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
There are some truly inspired Star Wars Tiki cups out there, but this abstract option might be our favorite. Even though it's more expensive than the alternatives, it's a bit less 'in your face' and will serve as a more subtle Star Wars gift as a result.

'
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 (opens in new tab).

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...

Lego Star Wars The Child | Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
'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 big deal). Besides providing a really cute toy or shelf ornament, putting the whole thing together is a fun activity that can be shared with loved ones.

Galactic Snackin' Grogu |  Check price at Amazon (opens in new tab)
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 Star Wars gift with younger fans.

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 (opens in new tab)
