Star Wars Mr. Potato Head Darth Tater & Luke Frywalker Figure & Accessory Set by Playskool ($29.99) Available exclusively at Kohl’s.

Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker meet Mr. Potato Head, and the possibilities are endless! Kids can mix and match to make their own galactic creatures.

Star Wars Bop-it gift ideas

Bop It! Star Wars R2-D2 Edition Game ($146.20) exclusively at Walmart

Just like the classic BOP IT! game, players are directed (in C3PO’s charming voice) to twist, bop, and pull R2-D2 as many consecutive times as possible. The game features movie sounds and voices of R2-D2 and C-3PO.

You might have thought only had posters, but it turns out that they have art prints, murals, stand-ups and hundreds of Star Wars products.

My two Star Wars favorites are the Holiday Helmet Star Wars Christmas Sweater ($49.99), which is a hilarious take on the ugly Christmas sweater, and the super cool Star Wars Episode 7 BB8 Backpack ($54.99) fearing BB8, one of the new star characters of The Force Awakens.

Rock & Republic Star Wars Rivet Panel Top ($19.99) at Kohl’s

I couldn’t resist wearing this top on my segment with You & Me in the Morning in Chicago (this isn’t me…obvs). It’s dark and sinister looking but you don’t know it’s Star Wars until you see the subtle black-on-black logo on the back.
