Do you have a Star Wars fan with a birthday coming up? They probably have a tonne of SW gear and know every character by name and rank. These super fans can be hard to buy, but with a little help, you can use the force to get them lots of fun items for their special day.
Putting together themed gift baskets is fun and inspiring, Jedi. They will love it. Here are some great Star Wars gift basket ideas to help you out.
Idea #1: Star Wars Figurines
Star Wars is a merchandising behemoth with many items to pick from. A basket full of figurines gives a kid lots to play with and an adult a way to add to their collection.
Look for the hard-to-find characters because most people will have a Yoda, Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett. Think about side players like a bunch of Ewoks from the forest moon of Endor or some of the bar patrons from Chalmun’s Spaceport cantina in Mos Eisley. Your loved one will be excited to add to their figurine collection with ones they may not have.
Idea #2: Cooking Items
While most Star Wars food is homemade to look like characters from the series, you can use utensils and gadgets that are Star Wars-themed. These are the gifts you are looking for.
Want to make some waffles? Just get a Millennium Falcon waffle maker. How about popping some corn? There are Death Star poppers and R2D2 poppers to make your snack beyond this world. Smaller themed items for cooking and baking include:
- Character Cookie cutters
- Wooden spoons
- Cheese graters
- Cookie jars
- Death star ice cube trays
- Glowing chopsticks
You can get an R2D2 instant pot, light sabre salt & pepper mils or a Storm Trooper toaster. Add in a Galaxy’s Edge Black Spire outpost cookbook that has a tonne of recipes served in the Disney-themed lands. There are tonnes of Star Wars cooking items, big and small, to fit neatly inside your gift basket.
Idea #3: Clothing
If you want to give the gift of apparel, Star Wars won’t disappoint because they have a large variety of clothing for kids and adults. You can find all the characters and logos represented on:
- Baby outfits
Anything you can think of to wear will have some Star Wars stuff imprinted on it. A fan of the franchise will love to go through your gift basket to discover all the clothing you include and will probably run to change into a few items right away.
Idea #4: Toys
We can’t talk about Star Wars gifts without including toys. Kids love to get toys, and there are too many to list. Puzzles and board games are loosely part of this category and can be included in your basket.
You can get RC cars from the movies for bigger kids. What about video games? Most platforms like Playstation and Xbox carry many different games, so find out what console your loved one has and match a few games to play on it.
Beyond the usual games are new technologies like VR and AR.
VR or virtual reality is a 3D simulated experience where you wear a headset to take you into an immersive, virtual game world. AR or augmented reality integrates visual and audio game content on top of the real environment that you are in. Both have Star Wars games that are cutting-edge and amazing to play.
You can include toys in your basket ranging from simple cards and puzzles to the latest and greatest.
Idea #5: Adult Star Wars Gifts
Star Wars is certainly not just for kids; the merchandising machine caters to adults too. Here are some great gift basket ideas for adult Star Wars fanatics:
R2D2 Coffee Press
This coffee press is ideal for those mornings when you need a jolt of the force.
Millennium Falcon Drone
These custom drones look cool flying around.
Storm Trooper Decanter
How about a themed clear container house your favourite spirits?
Boba Fett Wallet
A nice leather wallet with the classic helmet imprinted.
Character Car Decals
These are fun and show the cars you share the road with that you are a fan.
Star Wars Drinking Glasses
You can get pint glasses, shot glasses, tumblers and beer mugs for those that want to consume on-brand.
Deluxe Book Set
There are nice book sets of the series that are collectables, including the Secrets of the Galaxy Deluxe Box Set.
Anyone can buy a gift for a Star Wars fan, but a themed gift basket means the force is with you. Take inspiration from these ideas and create the perfect multi-gift basket that will please even the most hard-to-buy-for Star Wars enthusiasts.
