* Number of Star Wars clichés: at least seven

Sphero Battle-worn BB-8 and Force Band (£180)

Not since the very first union of meat and fire has there been a more glorious pairing than that of Sphero and BB-8.

Back with an all-new battle-worn paint job - trundling around the sands of Jakku takes its toll on one’s appearance - this collector’s edition also includes the new Force Band, which allows you to control the chirpy little ball of joy with hand gestures.

The band also vibrates when there’s a nearby disturbance in the Force, letting you physically explore your surroundings and collect relics on your smartphone, Pokémon Go-style.

Ultimate Star Wars (£10)

Park up the Falcon and find a comfy couch at Stormbucks: this coffee table compendium leaves no concept, prop, battle or shot uncovered.

Spanning every inch of that long-ago galaxy (and the first and second trilogies), at 320-pages, it’ll keep ‘Wars fans occupied better than a whole day’s pod-racing on Tatooine.

Hot Wheels Elite Force Awakens Poe's X-Wing (£90)

Prepare for puns: this die-cast rebel retaliator will take your Christmas to the next galactic level as you feel the force in its expertly-crafted get-up.

Reminisce about last year's Force Awakens release with this Elite series model, complete with a tiny moulded Poe and display stand, ready to take pride of place alongside that carbonite-encrusted Han on your mantlepiece.

Millennium Falcon Multi-tool (£9.99)

Hyperdrive got the hump again? Set Chewy to work with this ship-inspired stainless steel tinkerer and it’ll be back to galaxy-spanning speeds in less time than it takes to open a parcel with the wallet-sized widget. Oh, and it opens bottles, too – perfect for post-repair refreshment in a certain cantina on Mos Eisley.
