Star Wars Battlefront II PlayStation 4 Pro Bundle
I know Battlefront II is not getting much love from gamers due to the whole loot box situation but that doesn’t mean it is not a fun game. The Xbox One X is nice but PlayStation 4 has an impressive range of games for everyone. Even if you don’t like the game you gotta admit that this bundle will look epic in your living room.

App-Enabled Droids by Sphero
Sphero is doing amazing things in the tech industry and I love them for it. Last year the force controller was introduced and this year we have 2 more droids. I can’t pick just one! All of them can be controlled via a smartphone or the force band controller. The app is loaded with games and features to amaze anyone. Even non-star Wars fans will get joy out of seeing these small robots roll around.

Propel Star Wars Quadcopter
Last year I was lucky enough to attend the launch of Propel’s Star Wars Quadcopter. The level of detail they put into it is insane but hardcore fans will love it. Even the packaging lights up and plays music from the original movie when you open it. The Quadcopter itself is impressive and easy to fly. Best of all is the price is now down to $99.

Add a little bit of Star Wars to your breakfast with this Waffle Maker from Pangea Brands. It might seem like a weird choice to add to my gift guide but who doesn’t love waffles in the morning? It can also be used to make eggs, sandwiches and more.
State Bags Star Wars Collection
I am loving the Star Wars collection by State Bags. Especially the Johnny Darth Vader bag. It can hold all of my tech and it looks professional enough for work. Look carefully at all of the detail in the bag’s design. Notice the zipper pullers are Light saber-colored and the death star on the strap?

BONUS: Special edition NVIDIA TITAN XP
As a PC gamer, I just had to add this to my Star Wars gift guide. The TITAN XP is the BEST GPU that NVIDIA has to offer! Adding 2 limited edition Star Wars edition just made it more attractive. Bad news is that It costs over $1,000. The good news to this is that we might see more special editions of NVIDIA’s graphics cards in the near future. Hopefully more affordable versions.
