9 Star Wars-themed gifts to give (and get) this holiday season
One could say that 2019 is the end of an era in terms of pop culture. This year, we closed the chapter on the Marvel Cinematic Universe that we’ve come to know, witnessed the controversial finale for HBO’s decade-defining hit Game of Thrones, and said goodbye to CBS’ long-running sitcom, The Big Bang Theory. And before the year is over, we’ll also be bidding farewell to one of the longest-running movie series in modern film history: Star Wars.
Concluding the decades-long franchise created by George Lucas, The Rise of Skywalker is one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2019. And with its premiere (just a week from today) coinciding with the holiday season, now’s the perfect time to give gifts (or get a few for yourself) that commemorate the end of the Star Wars legacy.
To help you out, we’ve rounded up the nine best Star Wars gifts that you can find on Amazon, from a LEGO set of Darth Vader’s fortress to a remote control Resistance X-Wing. Regardless of which side you support in the galaxy, there’s something on this list for every age and budget — and we wouldn’t be surprised if the Star Wars superfan in your life is beside themselves with excitement after receiving any of them. Even better? Thanks to Amazon’s fast shipping for Prime members (or anyone who signs up for a 30-day free trial), all of these galaxy-approved gifts are set to arrive before Dec. 24. So if you’re behind on your holiday shopping list, we’ve got you covered. Here, the nine best Star Wars gifts for 2019.
