Star Wars/Star Trek Gifts

This Star Wars BB8 can not only be controlled, but by a phone app

Remote controlled BB8

Sometimes you are looking for a gift that is a specialized category. When the person is a big fan of Star Wars or Star Trek, that may just fit the occasion. Maybe that fan is you! There are so many gift choices in this category! Some choices out there are not quality items…and some are out of orbit on price. There are great Lego kits in this category, many in fact, but how many people are going to buy a $5000 dollar Lego kit? Because they are both fun and practical, they are a good choice. I have also found some toys that so remarkably unique and fun that I think they are a huge win. There are videos of them in action here so that you can get that big WOW factor that I saw.

This mug shows the light sabers on the mug, heat changes the mug to show the light sabers lit up.

This mug has the Death Star and Alderaan…hot drinks make the laser from the Death Star hit Alderaan.

This one has Yoda and his famous motivational quote appears when there is a hot drink in the mug.

When the mug gets hot, the Star Trek crew beams to the planet. This one is MY favorite and it sells out a lot.
