The Star Wars Black series is known for its laser-focused attention to detail (take a look at the whole range here if you don't believe us), but one of the coolest might just be the depiction of the titular Mandalorian. His battered, hodgepodge armor and off-the-shoulder cape that screams "I'm a badass, get over it" are brought to life in perfect miniature form here. He'd look incredible on any desk or shelf, and can be joined by the likes of the new Sith Trooper or Jedi: Fallen Order's hero, Cal Kestis.

4. Star Wars: Where's the Wookiee?

The best novelty Star Wars book and stocking-filler

Fun idea
Cheap
A great stocking-filler for all ages

Who needs Wally or Waldo when there's a Wookiee to be found? Incredibly, there's even an actual plot excuse as Chewie is hunted down by the Empire and you have to spot him on each page before the best bounty hunters in the galaxy find him instead. There's even plenty of other characters to spot once you've seen everyone's favourite Wookiee on each page.

5. Star Wars: The Clone Wars Blu-Ray set

The best Star Wars TV series

Adds tons of depth to the prequels
Just plain fun
Excellent character-work

Star Wars: The Clone Wars was one of the few things outside of the movies pre-Disney that's still considered canon, and you know what? We're very grateful. It has some of the best Star Wars stories within its five seasons (six, if you count the Lost Missions). Better still, it's ideal for all ages and is getting new episodes on Disney Plus. Want to see them, and the rest of the series, for a small monthly fee? Find out how to get yourself a Disney Plus sign-up right here.

In-universe recipes

If you've ever wanted to know what food's like in the Star Wars universe, this cookbook is for you. It's based on meals that are available from the Galaxy's Edge themepark in Disneyland/Disney World, and it's a fun curiosity as a result. Plus, in-universe writings from 'intergalactic gourmet Strono “Cookie” Tuggs' add a touch of fun to what could otherwise be dry instructions.
