There are few franchises as universally loved as Star Wars. After all, how many pop culture phenomena have their own day? (May the fourth be with all of you.) Add in the current craze of The Mandalorian, an onslaught of upcoming spinoffs and the entire collection of films — past and present — now available on Disney+, and well… the craze is understandable.
However, that also means that when you’re trying to find the perfect gift for that Star Wars fan — or fans — in your life, there are plenty of options out there. Plus, we’re fast approaching the unofficial fan holiday Star Wars Day, held annually on May 4th, as in “May the force be with you.”
To help you on your journey we’ve narrowed down some of our favorite Star Wars gifts. From 3D nightlights and a simulation helmet to retro tees, commemorative pins and lightsaber chopsticks, here are some of the best gifts for Star Wars fans of any age.
1. Star Wars Door Mat
Before anyone even steps foot into your home or apartment, you can show you’re team Jedi with this Yoda doormat. Nothing is quite as welcoming as the little green guy who created his own version of the English language. Welcome you are, to your new favorite doormat.
2. Star Wars Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
Start them off young with these Star Wars-themed Bluetooth headphones. They are completely kid-safe, with reduced volume to keep the kiddo’s hearing protected. And the 30-hour battery life keeps kids entertained for the whole day without needing a recharge. The Force is clearly strong with these headphones.
3. Boba Fett Device Holder
Boba Fett is arguably one of the coolest characters in Star Wars. And any Star Wars fan would be privileged to set their Xbox, PlayStation or Switch controller in Boba’s hands after a long gaming session. It also goes great on a nightstand and will hold your phone as it charges. No matter where Boba Fett ends up in your home, just like in the movies, he’s going to make an impression when he arrives.
4. Star Wars Instant Pot
R2D2 is the ultimate companion, especially when he can cook you delicious meals in a few minutes. Not only are Instant Pots essential to any kitchen, but for the Star Wars fan in your life, it can literally be their partner in crime in the kitchen. Plus, deep down, every Star Wars fan wants their own R2D2.
5. Light Saber Chopsticks
These Light Saber Chopsticks come in a number of different colors so you can show whether you’re with the Jedi, or the Dark Side of the Force. Of course, you’re going to need to up your chopsticks game — nobody is going to believe the Force is with you if you have trouble picking up a piece of sushi.

Star Wars fans are all about the details of their favorite cinematic universe, and this tome has more than they could ever ask for.

Disney+ is the premier destination for all things Star Wars, and for just $6.99 monthly (or $69.99 yearly), you get access to the entire Skywalker Saga as well as your favorite tie-in shows. With additional standalone series following franchise mainstays like Obi-Wan Kenobi on the way and the films like Star Wars: Rogue One, a Disney+ subscription is a great gift for anyone even remotely interested in this franchise.

8. Monopoly: Star Wars Complete Saga Edition
Cruise around the galaxy claiming properties at light speed with this special edition of Monopoly. It represents the complete saga, with nine tokens representing a character from each film, and instead of properties, you’ll pick up planets and droids, with TIE Fighters and X-Wings replacing houses and hotels. It’s your favorite board game with a makeover fit for any Star Wars fan. With all three trilogies spoken for, this is the definitive family gift for any May 4 celebrations.
9. Tervis The Child Insulated Tumbler
You can’t talk about the best Star Wars gifts without talking about Baby Yoda! We love Baby Yoda as much as you do, and we’ve previously written about our favorite Baby Yoda merchandise. The Mandalorian put a smile on fans’ faces when it debuted “The Child,” the face that launched a thousand memes, and we’ve all taken to lovingly calling the little guy Baby Yoda. This insulated tumbler features a nice, clear image of the little cutie and is perfect for toting around hot or cold drinks your giftee can sip from any time. They just might have a hard time looking away from how cute this tiny little green kiddo is.
10. Star Wars: The Black Series Poe Dameron Electronic X-Wing Pilot Helmet
Any Star Wars fan would be thrilled to see this realistic, movie-accurate helmet in their living room. This particular model is based on Poe Dameron’s X-Wing helmet, and it can even be worn. It features an internal microphone that can allow users to interact with BB-8 from the inside and also features a retractable polarizing visor. You may not be able to become Poe Dameron, but this is the next best thing.
11. Star Wars: The Jedi Path and Book of Sith Deluxe Box Set
Both sides of the Force, light and dark, are connected in ways that the most formidable Jedi Knights know. This box set helps readers learn the Path of the Jedi in The Jedi Path, as told by various generations of Jedi like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker. If the Light Side isn’t your thing, you can always check out the Book of Sith. There’s information for both sides of the Force here, so giftees can see how both paths are interconnected. Both books come in a gorgeous collector’s box, as well.
12. Star Wars R2-D2 Complete Lamp
Is there a better way to add a touch of Star Wars to your home decor than with this Star Wars R2-D2 Complete Lamp? We doubt it. This attractive and expertly crafted lamp is ideal for use as your bedside lamp and sports an eye-catching silver finish. It’s made from a tough resin and comes with a clear power cord with the on/off switch built-in. This is a great piece for budding Jedis looking to get rid of the dark side . . . of the bed.
13. Sanabul R2-D2 Classic Boxing Gloves
If there’s someone you know looking to get in better shape, perhaps by taking up a boxing class (or maybe you know a boxer!) gift them a pair of these wholly unique boxing gloves from Sanabul. While the R2-D2 option is particularly cool, you can also choose from several other standout characters from the universe: Darth Vader, the Rebels, Stormtroopers, and more. Made of vegan leather for enhanced durability, they’re a great choice for both amateurs and professionals and offer that much-needed touch from a galaxy far, far away.
14. Death Star Weed Grinder
For Star Wars fans who love a good time as much as they love the Skywalker clan, we have the perfect gift. To be honest, we’re surprised that the famously litigious Disney lawyers haven’t gotten this particular piece of merchandise removed from Amazon yet, so we definitely recommend ordering while you still can. This herb grinder is in the shape of the Death Star, and it’s one of the funniest and best Star Wars gifts we’ve come across in the run-up to May 4.
15. Star Wars 3D Night Light
What better way to light up the night than with your own 3D-sized Grogu or Death Star? This futuristic LED light also offers the Millennium Falcon and Mandalorian patterns, and you can customize it with seven different colors. It’s a great option for kids, but adults who are looking to add a little personality to their own bedrooms or rec rooms will get a kick out of it too.
16. LEGO Millennium Falcon
Whether you need a new pastime or want to add to your existing LEGO collection, this 1,300-plus-piece replica of the Millennium Falcon is a good one for new and classic fans alike. It’s recommended for kids aged nine and up because of the complexity of the build and the little pieces involved, but grown-up kids will have some therapeutic fun piecing it together too.
17. Corelle Appetizer Plates
They say you eat with your eyes first, so Star Wars fans will totally dig into anything on these cute Corelle plates featuring sketches of the characters you know and love. They’re sturdy and stylish, plus you can also invest in matching salad plates or Mandalorian-themed appetizer plates for the next time you really want to (dinner) party.
18. Star Wars Rebel Classic Graphic T-Shirt
This classic tee is the perfect addition to any fan’s closet since it features the OG baddie himself, Darth Vader. The soft, vintage wash makes it look worn and comfy, plus it’s printed using eco-friendly, water-based inks that will speak to anyone concerned about the planet.
19. Uncanny Brands Star Wars Death Star Popcorn Maker
What’s better than a Death Star popcorn maker? How about one that comes with its own Death Star bowl? Take movie night to the next galaxy with this hot air popper. Not only does it add ambiance, but air-popped popcorn also happens to be a healthier alternative to the chemical-filled microwave bags of kernels that hang out on grocery store shelves.
20. Disney Chewbacca Indoor Throw Pillow
This pillow is a choice, but it’s the perfect choice for the hardcore Chewbacca lovers out there. The soft plush material makes this a great stuffy for snuggly fans out there, but thanks to a hidden clasp under the wookiee’s tummy, it also unfolds into a comfy, themed pillow.
21. Star Wars Galactic Empire Silicone 4 Piece Ice Cube Tray Set
Still smarting over the end of The Last Jedi? Cool off with this ice cube tray set, which transforms any regular old drink into a beverage from far, far away.

Young Skywalkers everywhere can curl up comfortably in their big boy or big girl bed with this easy bed-in-a-bag. The set comes with a reversible comforter, sheets and pillowcases, giving you everything you need for a classic Star Wars-themed room.

Star Wars fans can put the pedal to the metal like they’re in their very own Death Star with these Vader-themed car mats, which are made with endurance in mind. The heavy-duty material protects the car’s floor from spills and other muck, plus they’re just plain old fun.
24. Darth Vader Embossed Luggage Set
Travel to your next planet in style with this embossed luggage set that’s bound to catch fans’ eyes. They’ve got loads of storage and feature 360-degree spinner wheels for the easiest commute possible, but more importantly, the dent-proof embossing means you’ll have an even easier time identifying your bag on that luggage cart.
25. Disney’s The Child with Frog Pin
This limited-release pin perfectly encapsulates all the feelings that come with a frog-loving Grogu. Fans that want to pin their hopes on The Child will definitely love the cute offering, especially when they realize that the frog legs pivot from side to side. Gruesome? Well, maybe a little. But hey, at least he’s not snacking on last-of-their-species frog eggs, right?
