Looking for gifts for the old-time Star Wars fan in your life? Here are a few tips.
Chewbacca the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas cards
All of the other Wookies used to laugh and call him names.
"Use the Force" cufflinks
Gorgeous and inexpensive (for cufflinks). Someone tell my wife... US$60.
Millenium Falcon bottle opener
It's enough to make you wish bottle caps weren't all twist-off these days. US$19.99.
Vintage Star Wars Cardback Notebooks
Star Wars superfan Kevin Gawthrope (of KG's Vintage Star Wars Corner) makes these wonderful things.
Spaceballs 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray Edition
From the Amazon write-up: "Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and his half-man/half-dog sidekick (John Candy) race against time to free a princess (Daphne Zuniga) from the evil clutches of Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis). Along the way, they meet the wise Yogurt (Mel Brooks), who teaches them the mystical power of "the Schwartz" in order to bring peace - and merchandising rights - to the galaxy!". US$8.
It never gets old.
Don't Hassle the Moff t-shirt
I'm not a big funny t-shirt guy. But I'd make an exception for this. US$20.
Why Is Dad So Mad? single
OK so a digital single is a funny sort of gift to give, and for $1 it might seem a bit cheap. But for that hard-to-buy-for Star Wars fan of a certain age, it's right on target. US$1.
Princess Leia infant onesie
Aww. It's so cute I'm going to ignore the mangling of Princess Leia's name on the Etsy page. US$24.
A Long Time Ago: Growing Up With And Out Of Star Wars
Don't take it from me. Ask Wired.com:
At the end of it all, they are just movies. But for people like you and me, they meant a lot more; each film was a meaningful mile marker on our childhoods. A Long Time Ago captures those memories and transports you back to the living room floor, when the shag carpet was the Dagobah swamp and the gap between the couch cushions was the Death Star trash compactor. These are times worth revisiting and this memoir helps to bridge the gap. If you’d like to revisit a galaxy far, far away, give A Long Time Ago a look. As Van Ert’s daughter says, “It’s a good story, uh?”
US$11.99 (paperback), 4.99 (eBook)
