Get the gift that goes with the gift.
This holiday season, there’s a very good reason to have a small fleet of tiny Star Wars ships on hand.
That’s because sometimes you don’t so much need a gift as you need a gift to go with the gift. Like when you forget about Secret Santa until the last minute and need to somehow upgrade the refillable gas station mug with a reloadable gas station gift card that seemed more impressive until it was time to put a bow on it.
Throw a Hot Wheels starship on top and all the sudden you’ve gone from thoughtlessly generic to timelessly cool.
There have been Star Wars movies coming out for the last 40 years or so. Pretty much everyone fell in love with one trilogy or another at some point or at the very least succumbed to the cinematic perfection that was the holiday special. (The fact that Annie Hall won Best Picture that year is why we’ve been boycotting movies since 1978. Chewbacca and friends were ROBBED.)
Anyway, the point is that a nice Hot Wheels version of a Star Wars ship is a great add-on gift for just about anybody, whether it’s a 10-year-old kid who is going to play with it immediately or a 50-year-old geek who is going to keep it on a shelf (after playing with it immediately).
Or maybe you know someone who would just love to have all twelve as a gift unto itself. Maybe that person is you.
It really doesn’t matter. These awesome little ships will not go to waste. Grab yours while they’re a heck of a deal.
