Star Wars Lightsabers

If you have someone on your gift list that really appreciate the movies, you may want to consider some Star Wars lightsabersand toys as gifts. These are appropriate for children but even those who are no longer kids often appreciate them as collectibles and as bits of nostalgia from their own childhood.

Before you run out to the nearest retailer or toy shop and just buy the cheapest or closest Star Wars lightsabers you can find for those gift items, you may want to give some thought as to your choices and your recipient.

Remember that there’s a difference between Luke Skywalker and Anakin Skywalker; those children and other recipients on your gift list will know the difference! Typically you’ll see character names on the packaging of those Star Wars lightsabers, so if you know they like a certain character, look for that.
