An epic, generation-spanning saga about defeating fascism is timeless, which is why “Star Wars” has inspired devoted fans of all ages. And the Disney marketing team is highly skilled, which is why the company has made sure that those legions of fans can purchase pretty much any item they’d ever need — from cookware to clothing and everything in between — emblazoned with logos, characters, and other “Star Wars” iconography. To celebrate “May the 4th,” and all things “Star Wars” we rounded up a collection of the best gifts for fans of the Force.
While these items make perfect gifts for the “Star Wars” fans in your life, it’s totally okay if the “Star Wars” fan in your life is yourself. You deserve gifts too. Check out our selection below.
Not only will you get access to every film in the “Star Wars” franchise, plus its animated spinoff series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” the new series “Star Wars: Bad Batch” which debuted on May 4, and the critically acclaimed live-action series, “The Mandalorian.” You’ll also be ready for the more than half dozen new series (including two “Mandalorian” spin-offs, a “Rogue One” spin-off, and series about Lando Calrissian and Obi-Wan Kenobi).
Galactic Snackin’ Grogu doesn’t come out until later this year, but you can pre-order it now to get a head start on the shopping rush. The 9” animatronic toy features over 40 motorized sound and movement combinations — including head, ears, and arms movements, and eyes that open and close. He also coos, giggles, babbles, and more. The toy comes equipped with four interactive accessories (bowl with tentacles, cookie, shifter knob, and spoon) that Grogu reacts to when they’re placed in his hands. You can also pretend to feed him with the interactive accessories and he’ll respond with yummy, or yucky sound effects.
This premium collectible helmet features sound and light FX (which are nods to Battle of Yavin, and the Battle of Hoth), three internal speakers, and synchronized LED lights located inside the translucent visor to simulate blaster fire from enemy vehicles. Batteries (two, AAA) sold separately.
Point and shoot with this retro-inspired analog instant camera from Polaroid Originals. If you really want to channel “The Mandalorian” aesthetic, pick up this “Star Wars” themed instant film.
These $20 earbuds feature the classic Stormtrooper design, and they make a pretty inexpensive but solid gift choice.
Amazon’s special edition remote covers are designed to fit the Fire TV Alexa Voice Remote Generation 2. The remote covers are currently on sale in honor of “May the 4th.”
The “Star Wars Edge of the Empire: Core Rulebook” is another one of Amazon’s “May the 4th” deals, so you’ll want to catch the discount before day’s ends.The 448-page rulebook contains just about everything anyone could need to start roleplaying in the “Star Wars” galaxy.
This light-up ship is a detailed reproduction inspired by the “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” attraction at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. A perfect gift for adult collectors, the First Order TIE Echelon Vehicle Figure has a light-up (non-detachable base), and it’s battery operated (AAA batteries included).
At 18” x 14,” this deluxe print can be a house warming gift or office accessory. It’s double matted and ready to frame.
Sometimes tapping into the Force means looking the part. This textured tunic wrap has a front closure and hidden hook with edge fastener, and a sash that closes in the back.
You don’t have to be into cosplay to think that this Galaxy Edge Robe looks pretty damn cool. Apart from being comfortable, the rob has a hidden hook and eye closure at the neck to give off a dramatic loose-fitting look.
Love him or hate him, Darth Vader is an icon that deserves to be immortalized in LEGO form. For LEGO enthusiasts who love “Star Wars,” the Darth Vader Helmet will keep you occupied for a few hours, at the very least. It has 834 pieces, and measures over 8.”
Celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride (and your love for the galaxy) with a Millennium Falcon Mineral Wash T-Shirt from Disney’s Rainbow Collection line. A portion of sales from the collection will be donated to organizations supporting LGBTQ+ communities.
It’s a little late to get this shirt for 2021’s “May the 4th” celebration, but you can stock up for next year, or wear it any other time in between.
A definitive collection of the artwork from the late artist who crafted the visual landscape of the original “Star Wars” trilogy. Ralph McQuarrie designed Darth Vader, R2-D2, C-3PO and Chewbacca, and drew concepts for the film’s sets, along with creating hundreds of other pieces of artwork throughout his career. “Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie” is a comprehensive tribute to the beloved concept artist that includes hundreds of never-before-seen illustrations, rare unpublished interviews, and recollections from McQuarrie’s colleagues and friends.
Just like Grogu, this mini backpack from Loungefly is small, adorable, and mighty. Its simulated leather features a repeated pattern of the Child and the hover pram, a double zipper main compartment and front zip pocket, plus a lining featuring “The Child” written in Aurebesh and a hover pram icon. The shoulder straps are adjustable, and it measures 10.5″ x 9″ x 4.5.”
The blue and black galaxy print with reflective silver “Star Wars” logo emblazoned on this cropped pullover top is perfect for at-home lounging in 2021. The Her Universe piece also has contrast ribbed cuffs, hem, and crew neck collar, plus a stylish dropped shoulder. It was created specially for Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, which means it’s totally okay for you to daydream about going back there someday while you sit on your couch.
The first level of fandom is always a novelty mug. Everyone loves a novelty mug; that is just science. This particular novelty mug features lightsabers that change color when you fill it with hot liquid. (For the curious nerds, the thermochromatic lightsabers belong to Yoda, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and more.)
The next step up from novelty mugs: novelty KNIVES. This set of four cheese knives (a cheese plane, knife/spreader, curved knife with dual prong tip, and sharp knife for hard cheeses) by Picnic Time comes nestled inside a wooden Death Star-themed cutting board.
You thought we were headed out of the kitchen? Think again, because this “Star Wars” slow cooker features rad graphics of the Millennium Falcon, TIE fighters, and more. The marketing copy for this slow cooker also notes that it’s a perfect size for two to three servings for your “closest galactic allies,” and it’s “a slow cooker simply worthy of the galaxy’s finest — YOU!” You know what? They’re right.
Okay, fine, this is the last kitchen item: a Darth Vader apron, because you don’t want to let that recipe get the best of you. You are as powerful as Darth Vader in the kitchen. You can do this.
The 2020 Adidas x Star Wars collaboration includes a pair of Luke Skywalker-themed canvas Stan Smiths (the “nooooo!!!” on the soles is a particularly fun touch), available on the Adidas site. You can also find two more of this year’s launches, a pair of Ultra Boost Yoda running shoes and Death Star Alphaedge cross-trainers, on the Adidas site, or peruse past editions (like the pictured Millennium Falcon Ultra Boosts or some Stormtrooper joggers) on Amazon. There are kids’ versions too.
LEGO Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Millennium Falcon 75257 Starship Model Building Kit and Minifigures
This LEGO Millennium Falcon kit features a whopping 1,351 pieces — including seven LEGO Star Wars character minifigures (Finn, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, C-3PO, and Boolio) and two LEGO figures (D-O and BB-8). The 5″-by-17″-by-12″ form features a rotating top and bottom gun turrets, two spring-loaded shooters, a lowering ramp, and an opening cockpit.
If LEGO isn’t your thing but you’re still looking for something to build, this massive 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle featuring characters from the prequels is appropriate for people ranging in age from 168 months to 1,200 months. (Is that a space thing? In Earth time that’s 14 years to 100 years.)
For a more subtle way to display your “Star Wars” fandom, this recreation of Han Solo’s famous dice features an antique, weathered look and is made from solid cast metal and plated with gold. They’re versatile: Hang them over your rearview mirror, or just sit them on your desk to stare at when you get writer’s block.
Let your pals Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Han Solo keep your car cool for you with this spring windshield sun shade. Hot tip from user Jory K: “My windshield is a bit small (Jeep Patriot), so Luke gets cut out of the picture as Obi-Wan overlaps him, that’s fine by me. Of course if you have a similar vehicle, you could overlap Luke first and cut Obi-Wan like the first Death Star escape.”
This small, two-inch Millennium Falcon keychain is also a bottle opener. It was allegedly made in a galaxy far, far away, but the Prime shipping is free so we have our doubts it really was that far away.
A popular accompaniment to the novelty mug is the novelty sock, and this is a set of four of them featuring Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, Chewbacca, and R2-D2. The one-size-fits-all socks have a lifetime warranty, but it’s unclear what that means for a novelty sock.
Little girls love “Star Wars” too, and this Amazon brand has created a set of four “Star Wars”-themed leggings featuring favorite characters and other “Star Wars” visuals.
