11. Darth Vader Force Glove

While Lord Vader commands the mysterious Force to strike fear into his enemies, these Sith-style gloves rely on something far more earthly and a little less powerful. Special magnets hidden in each glove won’t allow you hurl your minions across the room, but you can draw a miniature lightsaber cut-out towards you. The perfect show of power the next time you find someone’s lack of faith disturbing.

10. X-Wing Knife Block

Luke Skywalker doubtless slices his cheese and pickle sandwiches with his trusty lightsaber, yet here in a galaxy not so far, far away, we must make do with mere knives. However, these Lucasfilm-licensed blades are the next best thing, assembled as they are in the form of the illustrious X-Wing fighter from the original trilogy of Star Wars movies. Instead of proton torpedoes and laser cannons, you’ll get five knives, including a cook’s knife and paring knife, not to mention the perfect excuse to re-enact the Death Star trench run. Bread knife, standing by.

9. Death Star Cookie Jar

Sit this Death Star Cookie Jar on your kitchen counter and young Jedi raiders will think twice before mounting an attack. It features intricate detail in its glazed ceramic exterior, although there’s no planet-vaporising laser. And even though its opening is far smaller than the film version’s two-metre wide thermal exhaust port, retrieving biscuits and making a swift getaway is a piece of cake – even without using the Force.

8. TIE Fighter Nutcracker

Crush rebel nuts’ resistance with the help of the TIE Fighter Nutcracker. Featuring a vicelike grip second only to Darth Vader’s and a sleek, stainless steel construction, any nut foolish enough to refuse to crack will have its shell shattered faster than planet Alderaan. With just a couple of twists of the TIE Fighter’s wing you’ll have that nut’s innermost secrets laid bare. You can stand down the interrogation droid.

7. Boba Fett Neon Sign

Ready to take on galaxy-spanning bounty-hunting jobs? Then advertise your services with a neon image of perhaps the most notorious tracker in the universe. Based on Boba Fett’s iconic red and green helmet, the light stands a pinch under 30cm high and can be plugged into your homestead’s mains supply.

6. Millennium Falcon

No Star Wars gift collection is complete without a Millennium Falcon. Think you can make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs? A radio-controlled Millennium Falcon will give it a good shot. Prefer to keep the action in your imagination (even George Lucas can't match the budget in your head!) then stick to a static toy. And don't forget the novelty Haynes manual for the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.

5. Stormtrooper Helmet

Once you've snapped up a Stormtrooper helmet there will be no debating who you go to a fancy dress party as any more - and you'll love it. Prepare to hum the iconic music and march around your friends's living room to your heart's content pretending to crush rebellions in the name of the Emperor Palpatine. Bit extreme for you? Why not go for the ultimate salt and pepper pots in the shape of a Stormtrooper and Darth Vader?

4. Death Star Tea Infuser

When Darth Vader needs some alone time at the end of a hard day’s rebellion-quashing, he climbs into his meditation chamber and pours himself a nice cup of Lady Grey. Doesn’t use teabags either, even though keeping tealeaves fresh in deep space is murder. You have to wonder whether he uses a stainless steel tea infuser like this one with a heavy dollop of irony, given the sorry fates of the Empire’s two Death Stars.

3. Lightsaber BBQ tongs

Inspired by Darth Vader’s own red lightsaber, these barbecue tongs feature heat-resistant plastic handles, stainless steel tongs and a red, plastic storage sleeve. There’s even a button you can flick for authentic lightsaber sounds. Just try not to spray everyone with burger juice as you swoosh the tongs about. Chuck another tauntaun steak on the barbie, Luke!

2. Lego Star Wars

Star Wars and Lego seem made for each other these days and everyone's favourite sci-fi film franchise and everyone's favourite Danish construction toy really are a match made in heaven. The relationship - the first tie-in of its kind - began in 1999 and since then Lego has released a whole host of sets based on the films in the franchise, even spawning its own video game series. In addition to regular  sets, Lego has released a number of Ultimate Collector Series, some of which are worth several hundred pounds on eBay.

1. Lightsaber

The ultimate Star Wars gift has to be the lightsaber. Don't pretend you've never swoosh a breadstick or yard brush around pretending it's a lightsaber (while making 'the noise' obviously).  Pick your favourite and then let your imagination run wild - ideally in a duel with your like-minded Star Wars friends. Different models come with light effects too - depending on how much you want to spend on your pride and joy.
