May the force be with you when shopping for unique Star Wars gifts, though you won't need it considering the wide array of options. The series of six films, created by George Lucas, have become a cultural phenomenon over time. The original, "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope," ranks among the top 100 films of all time, according to AMC. The immense popularity of the series has ensured the production of a plethora of unusual games, costumes, accessories and other items.

The Boblbe Megalopolis backpack is available in Darth Vader (black) and Storm Trooper (white) varieties. They are 22 inches in length, weigh 1.81 Kilogram, made from durable plastic and are water resistant. Their tough, plastic shells are designed to protect the backpack's contents.

The R2D2 Animated Aquarium with Radar Eye Periscope is a replica of the popular droid from the movies, and the 1 3/4-gallon tank is located in R2D2's "belly." The periscope enables you to look into the tank for a close-up view of your fish. The tank comes with lights that change colour, a removable feeding door and Star Wars backdrops. R2D2's head even spins and he beeps as he does in the films.
The R2D2 pepper mill is operated by twisting the droid replica's head. The mill is 5 inches tall, cost less than £13 (as of 2010) and can be ordered online. Other items for the kitchen include a Darth Vader apron and toaster or a light sabre bottle opener.
Limited-edition artwork, figurines, models and busts at the official Star Wars shop are an alternative to the commercial items found in shops. Consider prop replicas such as Padme Amidala's shoes, Obi Wan Kenobi Jedi boots or a Boba Fett full-size costume complete with helmet, moulded armour suit and jumpsuit.
The R2D2 projector unit includes an integrated DVD player, mp3 dock, speaker, projector, memory-card slot and is controlled by a wireless remote control. It can project films onto an 80-inch viewing area and has built-in R2D2 sounds.
