Creative Gifts for Aspiring Jedi

December 2017: What a month to be alive! It brings the release of The Last Jedi on the 15th, just ten sleeps before Christmas. We at Bookwitty decided to get a head start on the celebrations by re-sharing Joanna’s article. She has great year-round gift ideas for Star Wars fans (a species that includes sci-fi fans, fantasy fans, and, as far as we can tell, most of the other people on earth too). From the younglings on your list to those old timers who celebrated the release of A New Hope, Joanna has you covered. -Eds.

Utini! If you know someone who knows on which detention level Princess Leia was trapped on the Death Star or knows all the 'words' to the Yub Nub song, this might just be the list for you!

IT'S A TRAP! While you might not immediately learn how to make an exogorth or a Sarlacc, Chris Alexander's  Star Wars Origami will show you how to make some pretty boss creatures like banthas and jawas. If you're more interested in X-Wings and TIE Fighters, check out Ben Harper's Star Wars Folded Flyers.

Where's the Wookiee!?! Help find Chewbacca in various places like the forest moon of Endor. (Fun fact: George Lucas had originally planned Endor's primitive inhabitants to be Wookiees, but he later decided that Wookiees were too tech-savvy so he created the Ewoks, the adorable teddy-bear creatures. Another fun fact: the word 'ewok' is never spoken in the film, Return of the Jedi.)

Not all Star Wars colouring books are alike. In Art Therapy: Star Wars, Catherine Saunier-Talec's unique style transforms imagery from the films into meditative mandalas and Art Nouveau-inspired pieces – relaxing fun for Padawan and Jedi alike.

In Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess, Jeffrey Brown imagines a world in which Darth Vader was, not only the Dark Lord of the Sith, but an adorably devoted dad just like any other.

May the force be with you ... always.


Joanna has twice won certificates of honour (and a free beer) for demonstrating “extraordinary courage against the unsurmountable Phaal”, a ludicrously spicy curry.
