The Force is extra strong this holiday season thanks to two major Star Wars releases: “The Mandalorian,” streaming now on Disney+, and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” out Dec. 20 – plus the opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the flagship attraction at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, on Dec. 5 at Walt Disney World.
If holiday shopping normally has you saying “I’ve got a bad feeling about this,” help is on the way. Here are 13 gift ideas for Star Wars fans guaranteed to bring balance to your shopping list:
Columbia Sportswear has been releasing a new Star Wars collaboration annually in December for a few years now and this year, two new jackets drop on Dec. 6. The Challenger Jacket – Star Wars Force Edition will let fans showcase their allegiance to the light side or dark side in unisex styles inspired by the Rebel Alliance and Empire. Fans who have been discouraged by the high price tag of previous collections will be happy to see these jackets available at a much lower $200 price point.

If you can’t get enough of the new Disney+ live-action Star Wars series, “The Mandalorian,” join the club. Yes, the Mando merch we’re all looking for is, of course, Baby Yoda, but in the meantime, no Star Wars LEGO collection would be complete without a set from the instant-classic series. $39.99
