For Star Wars fans Christmas comes early this year with the December 15 release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But there’s no reason not to keep the Star Wars spirit alive for the rest of the holiday season. (While ‘Sith on the Shelf’ may not have quite the same ring as the ubiquitous ‘Elf’ it’s likely to be a more effective tool for getting your kids to do their homework.) So when you’re finished decking the halls with boughs of holly—sourced from the forests of Endor, naturally—check out our gift list and pick up some of the coolest Star Wars-themed stuff out there (and don’t forget the stocking stuffer tickets to see The Last Jedi… for the second time).
