Alright, folks, I am here to help you today. “How?” you ask. “I’m already an expert at practically everything.” First off, good job. Second, practically everything. This Star Wars gift guide is how you can be an expert at buying Star Wars gifts for the dad(s) in your life.
I have compiled a list of Star Wars-specific gifts that I, or any male adult Star Wars fan, should be just thrilled to receive. In fact, this guide is so versatile, that non-adult and female Star Wars fans might even be happy with the items listed. Please note, I do not actually own most of these items yet, so I cannot speak to quality, and any commentary is probably just frivolous padding.

I used to enjoy Origami when I was younger, but that was back in the ancient days when you could make birds and also more birds. This concept intrigues me, plus I think it would be fun to do with Bear.
Not going to lie, I’m pretty sure that this will make you read at lightspeed. The reviews on the construction aren’t exactly glowing, but that just means it’s faithful to the actual Millennium Falcon.
Good luck finding the unguarded exhaust port on these waffles. You might do better just eating them instead.
Okay so there are all sorts of mobile phone chargers out there. But only one of them is R2-D2. This one. This is the one that is. It beeps and bloops and lights up when you plug it into your car. It might accidentally stop a trash compactor, though. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Okay, so I was informed that my list was too R2-D2 heavy. A little bit of everybody’s favorite new droid is just the thing, cause you know we love BB-8 around here. And stacking measuring cups are practical, so somebody has to get them for me, right?
- Write things
- Project BB-8 on to nearby poorly lit surfaces.
- Write more things.
Oh wait, sorry, Laser Sword umbrella. This one isn’t official, folks. But the official one costs over $100 more, and doesn’t change color. Therefore I am going with this option. Truth be told, everyone is going to know what it is, either way. Awesome. That is what it is.
Speaking of lightsabers, these are chopsticks. That are lightsabers. You can eat with them, and also cut your food with them*. It’s the perfect utensil! As a guy who literally carries a small fork around in his wallet, I would know. Everyone you know needs a set of these.
*These are not actually functioning lightsabers, so you cannot actually cut your food with them. Probably.
Now, back to R2-D2. (Don’t tell Beth.) This is on the higher end, yes, but it’s an attractive watch that doesn’t make you look like an 8-year-old, so there’s that. I’m not saying I wouldn’t get a BB-8 model, if they had one in this style. I like the slightly more subtle, while still recognizable design on this particular watch especially. Invicta has a wide range of watches, and any Disney lover is sure to find something they like.
On the lower end, but still classy looking, you’ve got a pocket watch that will let everyone know you are allied with the Rebels. And since you’re not actually a trained fighter or a scrapper with nothing to lose, this means you will likely be detained and held upon your first meeting with Stormtroopers. So maybe this isn’t the best idea; you decide for yourself.
So you bought the pocket watch, thinking you would save a few measly bucks, and now you’re being detained by Stormtroopers, who are famously not known for politeness. Luckily, you kept reading and also bought this item, so you can show them where your loyalties actually lie. It’s a drink tumbler, but when you fill it, the inside is the shape of a Stormtrooper’s helmet. Man. That was a close one.
Now, having taught you the importance of not being frugal with your life, I present the app controlled BB-8 toy. It’s kind of amazing. Plus, everybody’s favorite Star Wars droid (don’t tell R2) can now be your daily companion. It’s a win/win!
While we’re talking about breakfast, isn’t coffee great? Yep?* Nope, you’re wrong. Coffee is great when you make it in an R2-D2 French press pot. I need this. For all of our readers who are my wife, I am serious. I need this.
*Please note, if you initially answered “no,” you are also wrong. Coffee is great.
Now, since I have to bail you out, again, I’ve got something else Imperial and expensive. It’s a robot vacuum that is also a stormtrooper. But, this one has the added function of getting you in good with any Rebels who show up. Cause it’s a vacuum, and a stormtrooper, so it is subtly implying that stormtroopers suck. Get it? Cause it’s a vacuum, and … you know what, nevermind. Have fun in Imperial prison.
Finally, for those of you who aren’t currently enjoying the hospitality of Darth Vader or Kylo Ren, depending upon the time frame we’re talking about, let’s have a cold one. And there’s no better way than with your own etched glass Boba Fett pint glass. Rebels, Imperials, pfft. We all know the bounty hunters have all the real fun.
So there you have it. The holiday gift guide for the Star Wars fan in your life, with important life-saving tips included at no extra cost. You may express your gratitude by buying me a Death Star firepit.
