It began ‘A long time ago in a galaxy far far away’, and since the first Eponymous film in 1977, this pop culture phenomenon has attracted millions of fans worldwide. This epic space adventure has captivated the attention of children and adults alike, and nearly everyone knows at least one person who loves Star Wars. So with Christmas approaching faster than a Naboo Royal Starship, it’s time to shop like a Jedi Knight and find the perfect gift for the Star Wars fan in your life.
However, as the fifth highest grossing media franchise of all time, there is an almost uncountable number of products to choose from. With everything from Star Wars themed monopoly to diamond encrusted stormtrooper helmets, how do you avoid a galactic shopping battle through a sea of Merchandise?
1) Give up now – Even if you know your Air Shrimps from your Anooba’s, you could still get lost in a Star Wars themed dimension of the internet. It’s not worth the risk, and besides, nothing shows how much you care like a £10 Argos voucher.
2) Use the force. If you spent months in a cave on the planet Dagobah learning how to lift stuff with your mind, then it’s your time to shine. Remember the words of Master Yoda – Shopping you are. Patience you must learn.
