The Best Star Wars Gifts for Everyone From Padawans to Jedi Masters

I have always loved Star Wars. I spent the first Christmas day that I can remember flying Luke and his X-wing around the house. I met Darth Vader (David Prowse) when I was 6. I can still feel the shiver of fear as he strode through the double doors, reaching over the crowd to shake hands with me as my Dad held me up. I never questioned why the Dark Lord of the Sith was in Woolworths.

When I became a dad, I had a fresh excuse to visit that galaxy far, far away, and buy new toys. (I still regret selling my own in a garage sale to raise funds for our first home.) My wife and I love the original movies, our kids prefer the prequel trilogy, but we all enjoyed watching the latest shows together. Since everyone knows I’m a fan, I have received (and given) many, many Star Wars gifts over the years. These are some of my favorites.
