Giving a gift is a universal way to show interest, appreciation, and gratitude, as well as strengthen bonds with others. When shopping for a gift for a book lover, it can sometimes be difficult to know which book to pick out for them. There are so many genres, authors, and topics that it can be tricky to choose a book that will align with your bibliophile’s literary tastes.
However, if your book lover is also a Star Wars fan like me, then look no further. These are some of my favorite Star Wars inspired gift ideas, ranging from books to electronics to artwork and posters.
Don’t forget to go see Rogue One when it comes out in theaters December 16th, 2016! And remember, may the force be with you.

Star Wars: Lost Stars (Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens) by Claudia Gray
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
Eight years after the fall of the Old Republic, the Galactic Empire now reigns over the known galaxy. Resistance to the Empire has been all but silenced. Only a few courageous leaders such as Bail Organa of Alderaan still dare to openly oppose Emperor Palpatine.
After years of defiance, the many worlds at the edge of the Outer Rim have surrendered. With each planet’s conquest, the Empire’s might grows stronger.
The latest to fall under the Emperor’s control is the isolated mountain planet Jelucan, whose citizens hope for a more prosperous future even as the Imperial Starfleet gathers overhead…

“Only you could have smuggled an entire rescue craft under the Empire’s noses.” Princess Leia Organa, to Nien Nunb, Star Wars: Princess Leia, Part V
Biography (from Wookieepedia):
Nien Nunb was a Sullustan male arms dealer and smuggler who joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Nunb answered the call from his friend, Rebel pilot Evaan Verlaine, to help smuggle a group of Alderaanians off of Sullust while avoiding detection from the Galactic Empire; the Empire was searching for surviving Alderaanians after the destruction of Alderaan. He went on to further assist Verlaine and Princess Leia Organa in their mission to unite the surviving Alderaanians, during which time he helped Organa escape from potential Imperial captivity.
Only a few years later, Nunb became part of the Alliance Fleet and flew as the co-pilot for General Lando Calrissian aboard the Millennium Falcon during the Battle of Endor. Together, they fought against Imperial forces while attempting to destroy the Death Star II in orbit of the forest moon of Endor. Their battle was a success, and the Millennium Falcon fired the shot that destroyed the Death Star and delivered a devastating blow to the Galactic Empire. Three decades later, Nunb was a starfighter pilot in the Resistance and fought in the First Order–Resistance conflict, including the Assault on Starkiller Base.
