Do they know it’s Christmas? Of course, because this is about the time when everyone’s worrying about what presents to get for their friends and family. Luckily for you, we have some recommendations for your consideration when you’re in a hurry to do some last minute Christmas shopping.
1. For The Boyfriend

This Christmas, unleash the force on your boyfriend. With the release of Star Wars: The Force
Awakens on 17th December, all the rage this holiday season has been all about Star Wars. Of all the cool little toys that are available, the most desirable toy is the BB-8 droid toy by Sphero. ($210) This app-enabled Droid will allow you to control your adorable ball-like robot with your smartphone or tablet. The robot has an adaptive personality that’ll change based on the way you play. BB-8 can even recognise and react to your voice. You can even record and view holographic videos together with your BB-8! If you’re in love with BB-8 (and who isn’t) but aren’t that willing to splash the cash, there’s also the Funko POP version of the BB-8 for $19.90. Just as cute, but without the techno-wiz.
Both products are available at Challenger Outlets at both Westgate and JCube.
