Christmas For A Star Wars Fan


It’s that time of the year again when people ask you what you want for Christmas. Often times what a totally Star Wars fan wants for Christmas can confuse the non-Star Wars fans a great deal and they end up avoiding buying you anything Star Wars related. Maybe the overwhelming amount of Star Wars merchandise confuses them or maybe the idea of buying an adult an action figure just seems wrong. Here is my advice to those who are having trouble buying their Star Wars loved one a gift.                                                                                                                                       

The Problem:

It’s weird buying an adult an action figure.

Solution:

No one is going to know whether or not the action figure you purchased is for an adult or not. I can think of way stranger stuff to purchase an adult. Singing Bass Fish, underwear, soaps shaped as seashells, the list goes on and on.

The Problem:

What if I get them something they already have?

Solution:

Look when collecting Star Wars merchandise whether it be an action figure, poster, doll etc. I leave it in it’s packaging. Collectors prize the condition of the packaging. If I end up with the same action figure who cares that just means I can leave one in the packaging and the other I can enjoy displayed on my shelf.

The Problem:

It’s so expensive.

Solution:

Yeah I know sometimes Star Wars merchandise can be expense but I recently ran into a box of Star Wars candy canes at Wal-Mart for two bucks. Look around at Wal-Mart and Target they often have sales on their Star Wars merchandise.

The Problem:

Where else can I locate awesome Star Wars stuff for my friend?

Solution:

Below is a list of places that I shop from.

Her Universe: Great place for the Star Wars fan girl in your life they have t-shirts and jewelry.

Think Geek: They have all kinds of Star Wars merchandise even a set of cool drinking glasses.

Ebay: I look here for those hard to find Star Wars stuff and I have often only paid a few bucks for them.

Amazon: I’ve found everything from movies, blankets, and bags.

Esty: I mention this place last week. You can find some wonderful unusually Star Wars handmade items.

Hope this helps! May The Force Be With You!
