Celebrate ‘May the 4th’ With the Best Star Wars Gifts This Side of Coruscant
For many, celebrating the joy that the Star Wars franchise brings us is a daily ritual. For the rest of the world, there’s May 4th, otherwise known as Star Wars Day. As an unofficial Star Wars holiday, it’s the one day a year where fans come together to revel in the sci-fi franchise that continues to bring the world together, even during these difficult times.
Despite the landscape of the world we live in right now, fans young and old still love these adventures in a galaxy far, far away. And, with the release of the second season of The Mandalorian this fall on Disney+, not to mention the imminent release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and The Clone Wars series finale, it’s no surprise that Star Wars fever is at its peak this May 4th.
With this in mind, we’re pretty sure you know someone who loves Star Wars. And whether that person is actually you or a friend or family member, gifting a Star Wars-related present is always going to be a win, especially when it comes to celebrating the season.
Whether you’re celebrating Star Wars Day by adding some new merchandise to your collection or looking for the best Star Wars gifts for a friend’s birthday, there are a ton of great options. To make your celebration unforgettable, we’ve compiled a varied selection of Star Wars gifts anyone is sure to love.

6. Tervis The Child Insulated Tumbler
BEST FOR FANS ON THE GO
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.
7. Star Wars 2-Slice Toaster
BEST FOR HOME COOKS
Cook up some fun with this slick Star Wars toaster, which features the iconic Millennium Falcon on one side and the rebel logo on the other.
8. Star Wars: The Black Series Poe Dameron Electronic X-Wing Pilot Helmet
BEST FOR COLLECTORS
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.
9. Star Wars: The Jedi Path and Book of Sith Deluxe Box Set
BEST FOR BOOKWORMS
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.
10. KYBERS Metal Hilt RGB Lightsaber
The KYBERS Metal Hilt TGB Lightsaber is without a doubt the coolest pick on our list. The high-quality Star Wars toy has everything a budding Jedi or Sith needs to practice their lightsaber skills. The aluminum hilt gives the lightsaber a tough and durable feel, while the blade is made from high-impact PC, making it great for cosplay and other minor contact activities. The device provides a range of volumes, sounds and colors to enjoy, and the hilt can also be separated from the blade to create a convincing un-ignited saber.
11. Star Wars R2-D2 Complete Lamp
BEST HOME DECOR PICK
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.
12. Sanabul R2-D2 Classic Boxing Gloves
MOST UNIQUE PICK
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.
13. Death Star Weed Grinder
BEST FOR STONERS
For Star Wars fans who love marijuana as much as they love the Skywalkers, we have the perfect gift. To be honest, we’re surprised that the famously litigious Disney lawyers haven’t gotten this 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.
