Few things proclaim, “I am an unabashed Star Wars nerd,” like covering your holiday tree with Star Wars ornaments. In keeping with this philosophy, ignore the typical holiday decorations and proceed with the Imperial plans for a Star Wars Christmas tree. With so many high-quality Star Wars ornaments and Christmas decorations available today, your Hallmark Death Star will be fully operational and completed on schedule.
Of course, if you prefer the light side of the force, fandom Star Wars ornaments abound — complete with nerdy Christmas tree toppers. Joining the Rebel Alliance for the holidays is the perfect way to rebel from generic snowmen, candy canes, and reindeer and create a Star Wars X-wing-mas with all of your favorite Jedi, Wookiees, and droids. Even the nerf herders in your life must admit that a BB-8 ornament is actually well-suited as holiday decor. Heck, make it a BB-8 Christmas and roll into the New Year.
Christmas on a Galactic Scale
Go ahead: Let your fan flag fly high with Star Wars ornaments which aren’t just for your tree. You can also deck the halls with a Star Wars Wreath and then either make your neighbors envious or slightly concerned with Star Wars Christmas yard decorations. Why not make sure the entire galaxy knows about your Star Wars Christmas Theme? Send out your Star Wars Christmas Cards as a little taste (or maybe warning) of what’s to come. For that matter, why use the same old office Christmas ornaments? After all, it can be hard to get into the Christmas spirit. But not if you use the Force. Reach out with your senses, as Santa Yoda might say.
Finding the Best Star Wars Ornaments
With so many movies in the Star Wars saga, there are a dizzying array of Star Wars ornaments for Christmas trees from which to choose. Just the Hallmark Star Wars Ornaments alone would be difficult to narrow down, and, as you’d expect, they are rich in detail and high quality. There is nothing cuter than a Hallmark BB-8 ornament, and your Aunt Louise will have to look close to realize it’s not a traditional Christmas ornament. See how long it take her to figure it out.
To track down the best geek tree topper and Star Wars lawn ornament, we traveled the universe in the usual way, via the internet. To narrow down the nearly infinite search, we looked for nerdy ornaments that have high customer reviews, that pay fine attention to detail, and that have the right Star Wars feel. As Qui-Gon Jinn said, “Feel. Don’t think. Reach out with your instincts.” That said, if the overall feeling came off as “cheap,” then we jumped to light speed and looked elsewhere.
We’ve divided up the list into sections based on which movie from the original Trilogy they appeared. There is a separate section for ships and vehicles and another section committed to popular scenes in the movies. That should make it easy to skip ahead to the Star Wars ornament you love the most. To find the droids we were looking for, we didn’t venture into the expanded universe but focused on the classic original films.
How Much Will These Ornaments Cost?
You won’t have to pay a bounty for these Christmas Star Wars ornaments. They range from as little as $10 to around $200 maximum. There is something in every price range for the Star Wars holiday. Below we listed our favorite Star Wars themed ornaments, separated by different categories.
Characters by Trilogy
We’ll focus on ornaments from the classic Trilogy: “Episode IV: A New Hope,” “Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back,” and “Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.”
Hallmark 2017 “Star Wars: A New Hope” Princess Leia Organa
We’ll start with the icon of the Star Wars universe that most symbolizes hope, and the fearless leader of the Rebel Alliance, Princess Leia Organa, played by the beloved late film legend, Carrie Fisher. This Hallmark Keepsake 2017 ornament captures her likeness from the first film, A New Hope. She’s no damsel in distress, in her classic white gown and blaster at the ready.
The price for this ornament ranges from $14 to $22. Customers give this Star Wars ornament a top rating of 5 out of 5 stars.
“Star Wars: A New Hope” six-pack of ornaments
These ornaments from “Episode IV: A New Hope” will appeal to those who want to venture into the Sci-Fi theme while retaining some of the traditional Christmas feels. The ball-shaped tin Star Wars ornaments set features the faces of the classic heroes and villains. They almost have a hand-painted look, with simplified shapes and lines. The familiar R2-D2 gives BB-8 a run for the money as a perfect sphere. Luke Skywalker in his Rebel pilot helmet is ideally suited to the shape as well. If your favorite movie isn’t A New Hope, you can choose characters from the other films as well.
The price for this ornament ranges from $24 to $34. Customers give this Star Wars ornament a top rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars.
Star Wars printed R2-D2 stocking with sound
This stocking sold by Kurt Adler is a classic. R2-D2 is instantly recognizable no matter what shape he is. When you push a button on the top, he bloops and bleeps and don’t worry: you get batteries with your purchase. This item is perfect for kids, both young and young at heart. It’s simple but manages to tug at your heartstrings as R2-D2 tends to do somehow.
The price range for the R2-D2 stocking with sound ranges from $10 to $18. There are no customer reviews available but Think Geek tends to deliver great products.
Hallmark Empire Strikes Back lunchbox and drink container
Many Star Wars fans who watched “Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back” when it came out in 1980 remember how popular the classic merchandise was. The classic lunch boxes featuring the Star Wars characters were a must-have item, and now you can relive the nostalgia in miniature. This Empire Strikes Back lunch box is a perfect replica. It’s adorable that it comes with the drink thermos and the shape lends itself well to a Christmas ornament.
The price for this ornament ranges from $25 to $35. Customers give these Star Wars ornaments a top rating of 5 out of 5 stars. We found it on Amazon, but it’s also frequently available on eBay, as are most of the Hallmark ornaments.
Rubie’s Star Wars Boba Fett candy bowl holder
We thought outside the box, as we think Boba Fett would tend to do considering his trademark jetpack. This candy bowl holder isn’t just for Christmas but will look great holding candy canes or ornaments. He’s 18-inches tall, making him a very prominent decore item. And that’s a great thing if you love Boba Fett. Throw a Santa hat and Christmas lights on him for extra holiday appeal. There are many other Star Wars character ornaments to choose, including an Ewok and Yoda. Although it’s hard to tell in the some of the pictures, the figure is hollow and the back is open, so it only looks good from the front.
The price for the Boba Fett Candy Bowl Holder ranges from $35 to $45. Customers give this item a 4.1 out of 5 stars.
Kurt Adler Star Wars fabriche Santa Yoda
The Kurt Adler series of tabletop Star Wars ornaments are hilarious and exquisitely detailed with Christmas details. This Santa Yoda figure features an accurate sculpt of Yoda’s face. But the real beauty is the detail of the Santa suit and bag of toys he carries. Customers do report some difference from the picture shown on Amazon but are pleased with it anyway. He stands about five inches tall and is designed to stand up on your table, rather than hung on a tree. There are several other characters available in this line, including a hysterical Chewbacca wrapped in Christmas lights, a highly-detailed Boba Fett, and a delightful Princess Leia with R2-D2 that we’ll look at again later.
The price for this Santa Yoda ornament ranges from $29 to $39. Customers give this Star Wars ornaments a top rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars.
Return of the Jedi Wicket And Teebo Hallmark ornament
Ewoks look perfect in a tree. Hallmark has created the perfect replicas of Wicket And Teebo, sure to take up residence in your tree with little effort. Although Ewoks aren’t a favorite for every Star Wars fan, the little teddy bear-looking critters seem ideal in this case.
The price for Wicket And Teebo ranges from $35 to $50, and you might check eBay because prices can always drop depending on the seller. On Amazon, these little guys have a customer approval rating of 5 out of 5 stars, because how could they not? Cuddly-looking Ewoks appear to be a favorite for many Star Wars ornaments fans at Christmas.
Return of the Jedi 6-piece ornament set
As Star Wars fans know, Return of the Jedi features some truly bizarre and unmistakable characters. Many entered the public consciousness and remain there today. Who hasn’t heard comparisons of Jabba the Hut to someone they know? Now the slug-like gangster can make a surprise appearance for the holidays. With this set, you get a host of other characters, including C-3PO with his silver replacement leg. The details on the sculpts look quite detailed for the price.
The price for the Return of the Jedi 6-Piece ornament set ranges from $49to $59. Customers give this item a 5.0 out of 5 stars.
Hallmark Keepsake Stormtrooper Peekbuster motion-activated Christmas ornament
The classic white Stormtrooper appears across the Star Wars saga, and this one features a festive Christmas hat. Instead of a gun, he holds a candy cane and stands beside a red present with an Imperial crest on it. The best part is this guy interacts with you when the motion sensor detects your presence.
The idea is to catch kids in the act of trying to catch a sneak peek at their presents under the tree. He humorously gives warning phrases to deter would-be present peekers. If the noises eventually get to be annoying, there is an off switch too. There are other “Peekbuster” figures available, including Darth Vader and a funny Santa Yoda.
The price for the Star Wars Stormtrooper Peekbuster motion-activated sound Christmas ornament ranges from $37 to $47. Customers give this item a 4.9 out of 5 stars.
Ships and Vehicles
Now we’ll take a look at a few or the ships, ornaments, or battle stations from the Star Wars Trilogy.
Hallmark Death Star Christmas tree topper
Never thought about placing an Imperial battle station atop your geek Christmas tree? Well, maybe it’s time. This one lights up in red, green, and blue with a remote control with the Imperial crest on it. Who needs Christmas tunes when you can listen to your tree topper play the Star Wars theme or the Imperial March? It comes with batteries and plugs into a standard outlet, or you can buy the Hallmark Magic Cord separately. It measures a little over 6 inches in diameter.
The Christmas Moon, as Think Geek calls it, ranges in price from $95 to $100. Customers give it 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
Kurt Adler Death Star string lights
To accompany your Death Star tree topper, how about some lights? They will definitely stand out either indoors or outdoors. They just light up and make no sounds, which is probably a good thing if you already have the tree topper. There are other characters available, including Tie Fighters, R2-D2, BB-8, Boba Fett, and Darth Vader.
The price for the Star Wars Death Star String Lights ranges from $20 to $31. Customers give the lights a rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars.
Gemmy Inflatable AT-AT Walker yard ornament
If you love Star Wars vehicles, this one is one of the most iconic. Importantly, the AT-AT Walker is ideally suited to traverse a winter wonderland, just like it did on Hoth. This one is self-inflating and imposing at almost 98 inches tall. Nevertheless, it has a cute stylized appearance with Chrismas lights along the “back” of the AT-AT. It will delight Star Wars fans passing by your home, but make sure you have an outdoor outlet to plug it in.
The price for this monster ranges from $150 to $200. Customers review it at 4.8 out of 5 stars.
Now we’ll take a look at your beloved Star Wars characters doing more than just looking cute. They are recreating the scenes from the films in intricate detail in these Star Wars ornaments. You won’t have to use your imagination whatsoever. But please, feel free.
Hallmark Keepsake “Star Wars: A New Hope” “Duel to the Death” Christmas ornament
Now for those who want to recreate scenes from the movies, it would be hard to compete with this detailed ornament. The battle between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader on the Death Star is THE scene that many people still think of when they remember A New Hope back in 1977. If they don’t know, they soon will when you push the button and listen to the dialogue word for word form the film. Sure, a fight to the death doesn’t exactly say “Christmas,” but you probably won’t care if you are a genuine Star Wars ornaments geek, right? We might have a hard time putting this one away after the holidays though.
The price for this ornament ranges from $22 to $32. Customers review it at 3.8 out of 5 stars. The review is a bit low since a customer didn’t get the included batteries.
Hallmark Keepsake Star Wars: Return of The Jedi “A Rebellious Rescue” ornament
Another Hallmark gem, this one features Princess Leia in her Boushh costume. Most Star Wars fans will know who it is, but if you haven’t seen the films, you’ll have no earthly idea. She’s standing beside Han Solo, frozen in carbonite. As we’ve come to expect from Hallmark, this ornament features lights and sounds, including Boushh’s creepy dialogue with Solo as she frees him. Just in time for Christmas, right?
The price for this ornament, (or is it really a diorama?) ranges from $29 to $39. Customers review it at 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Kurt S. Adler Princess Leia and R2D2 Table Piece
We looked at the Kurt S. Adler Santa Yoda ornament previously. This one features Princess Leia standing over R2-D2, recreating the iconic moment when she planted the hologram message in the droid that would determine the entire course of the saga. Now, she’s installing something different: a Christmas star. If you love Princess Leia like we do, then this one will make you smile. This one is meant to sit on the table, not on your tree.
This ornament ranges in price from $54 to $64. There are no customer reviews yet on Amazon, but the other decorations in the series have strong reviews.
“Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” “There Is No Try” Yoda and Luke Skywalker ornament
The Empire Strikes Back featured the fan-favorite scenes where Yoda trained Luke Skywalker to use the force. In this ornament, we see Yoda perfectly balancing on Luke’s foot as he does a handstand. We know what happens next in the movie, so there is plenty of implied kinetic energy. If you push a button, you can hear the dialogue from the movie.
The price for this ornament range from $50 to $90. Customers review it at 4.6 out of 5 stars.
Other Holiday-Themed Decorations
Wow! It was quite challenging to narrow down the search so far. There is a fantastic assortment of high-quality Star Wars ornaments available. Now we’ll look at some of the “other” decorations that were just too good to leave out.
Funko Pop Star Wars R2D2 with antlers collectible figure
We would hate to leave out the stylized Funko collectibles because they are ridiculously cute at an affordable price. This one is made just for the holidays, and R2-D2 looks adorable wearing antlers and lights. The series includes a Santa Yoda, Chewbacca with Christmas lights, Santa C-3PO, and Darth Vader holding a candy cane.
The price for the FunKo Pop Star Wars figure ranges from $11 to $24. Customers review them at 4.4 out of 5 stars.
Star Wars Christmas personalized ornament for couples
Now we’ll look at something handmade. You can personalize this high-quality porcelain keepsake ornament. Therefore, it’s perfect for new couples who love Star Wars ornaments, featuring the eventual couple, Han Solo and Princess Leia. The round ornament is 2.85 inches in diameter and comes with a gold string for hanging. The artwork is permanently fused to the surface so it won’t ever come off.
The price for this ornament ranges from $19 to $25. Customer rate this Etsy shop at 5 out of 5 stars.
Merry Force Be With You sign
Another Etsy shop product, this 6-inch by 12-inch sign is handmade in the USA and features an adorable design with Star Wars characters as gingerbread cookies. We love the message: “Merry Force Be With You.”
The price for this holiday sign ranges from $15 to $25. Customers give DiamondDustSigns a rating of 5 out of 5 stars on Etsy.
Star Wars Christmas fleece throw blanket
This fleece blanket has just the right combination of Christmas and Star Wars ornaments in soft grey tones with pops of bright red. It measures 66 inches long by 52 inches wide and will keep you cozy all winter. Once again, we love that it’s handmade and will be a unique gift made in the USA.
