Death Star Waffle Maker

ThinkGeek has a world of goodies for "Star Wars" fans - home of the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag! - but one of this year's most unique is this item ($39.99) which lets you make a breakfast the Empire would find most pleasing. thinkgeek.com

Irregular Choice's Star Wars shoe collection

It's hard to combine high-fashion with your love of "Star Wars," but may we suggest this wild collection of women's shoes (various prices)? Nevermind. We just did. irregularchoice.com

Ewok coin purse

Loungefly has a collection of bags, wallets and other accessories with your favorite "Star Wars" characters, but this item ($20) is a great chance to go with one of the most divisive critters (until Jar Jar). #teamewok loungefly.com

Ohioan Falcon shirt

"Put an Ohio on it" is our own "put a bird on it," but we can't complain about this brilliant and simple design from Cincy Shirts ($25). Now our state can do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. cincyshirts.com

Tickets to "The Force Awakens"

Look, no self-respecting "Star Wars" fan is going to wait a whole week to see J.J. Abrams' insanely anticipated next chapter in the saga. But if it's even close to as good as the fervor suggests, they'll want to see it again. Expect sell-outs on Christmas, so surprise them with some advance tickets. gatewayfilmcenter.com
