The Ten Coolest Star Wars Presents for the Star Wars Fan in Your Life

Or for yourself :)

I’m a big fan of Star Wars. I’m a big fan of star wars presents. So without further ado, I present to you the top 10 coolest star wars presents that you could get that Star Wars fan in your life.

    • Kinect Star Wars! Jump around like an idiot and pretend that you’re a Jedi. It doesn’t get better than that.

    • The Music of Star Wars [30th Anniversary Collector's Edition] As HUGE John Williams fan, this would be the perfect gift for my Star Wars shelf. Owning the mp3s just isn’t the same.

I hope this list give you some Ideas about what to get your significant other for Christmas. And thank you in advance for clicking through our amazon links. They’re kind enough to send us a small commission for each of your purchases when you click through. It doesn’t even cost you a thing!
