If you or someone in your life loves all things Star Wars, OG or Disney, then you know that May 4th is a big deal. I mean, come on… “May the 4th be with you”?! It doesn’t get much cuter for an unofficial fandom holiday than that.
Whether you’re celebrating this unique holiday or you’re shopping around for a birthday, anniversary, thank you gift — or any gift at all! — for your favorite Star Wars fan, you’ve come to the right place. Here are 25 Star Wars gift ideas that are sure to please, from budget-friendly picks to the ultra-elaborate.
Budget-Friendly Star Wars Gifts
You don’t need to spend a ton of money to buy a gift that will impress. Here are some budget-friendly Star Wars gifts that all come in under $25.
This cookbook, available on Amazon, is totally adorable, featuring recipes that are themed around the Wookiee holiday, Life Day… Think of it like the human Christmas!
The recipes are easy enough for even the most unsure chef, and many are, or can be modified to be, vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free. From Wookiee cookies to Mudhorn eggnog, you’ll find lots of fun treats that may just become favorites for even those who aren’t fans of all things Star Wars.
If your friend is more of a crafter than a cook, check out this book that will show them how to make a bevy of cool Star Wars items at home, from costume pieces to toys, apparel to home decor. There are nearly 30 different projects, all with full instructions. Maybe you’ll get lucky and your friend will make you something!
If your Star Wars fan friend is part of a Star Wars-lovin’ couple, opt for these affordable pillowcases. They come in a set that features likely one of the most iconic lines in sci-fi history and will make any Han Solo-Leia stan swoon.
These Stormtrooper planters available on Etsy are just the affordable gift for your pal with a green thumb. They’re the right size for most succulents and cacti and make an adorable addition to a desk space or really any sunny spot. The planters are 3D printed and come in two sizes, as well as multiple colors.
Your friend can find a Star Wars mug anywhere. Level up their daily cup of tea with this super cute and original BB-8 teapot and cup set.
Light up their next take-out night with a fun chopstick alternative. These light-up lightsabers come in packs of two and are available in multiple colors, so the user can alternate between Jedi and Sith depending on their mood.
“Serious” Star Wars Gifts
What do you get for the fan who’s a little on the down-low about their fandom participation?
You know the type. They’re not exactly going to wear their favorite Star Wars-themed tie or t-shirt to a company meeting and they might not have movie posters scattered across their home, but on the weekends, they go all out at their favorite cons.
Give them a bit of covert Star Wars love with one of these best Star Wars gifts that they can enjoy all the time, without breaking their cool.
If your Star Wars fan is on the near-sighted side, hook them up with one of these pairs of DIFF glasses that are themed after favorite characters from the Star Wars universe. There’s a sleek green pair that’s a nod to Boba Fett the Bounty Hunter. A geometric black pair gives strong Darth Vader vibes.
And if your fav fan isn’t in the market for some prescription glasses, they can also choose from several pairs of sunglasses themed after characters such as Princess Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO and more.
Ruggable offers Star Wars and Mandalorian-themed rugs starting at $100 and going up to $700. All are sleek and classy and you wouldn’t even know that they were themed unless you were a hardcore Star Wars fan or you asked.
Think artistic designs that, once you look a little closer, are actually TIE Fighters or toile rugs that, upon inspection, aren’t actually covered in tiny prints of Victorian children and farm animals, but iconic scenes from The Empire Strikes Back.
Similarly, drinkware brand Corkcicle offers a Star Wars and Mandalorian collection that features sleek options that are minimalistic enough to not be so in-your-face. With Darth Vader, Boba Fett and R2-D2 themes, you have several options to choose from, including several drinkware types to pick through, from coffee mugs to tumblers to canteens.
This limited-edition eye shadow palette is an easy way for your friend to add a little extra Star Wars love to their everyday look, without busting out the cosplay. The palette includes nine gorgeous hues and Colourpop’s eyeshadow is known to be both budget-friendly and long-lasting, with minimal fallout. All of the colors included in the palette are based on the colors used in designing Baby Yoda.
Another stylish, yet sleek and subtle option? These Rebel Alliance earrings are available on Etsy. Pick between gold and silver. The design is simple and cute, but only recognizable to true rebels like your friend.
To those not in the know, Citizen’s Star Wars collection of watches pretty much just looks like a collection of men’s and women’s watches that may or may not have a slightly subtle 1980s vibe, but look a little closer and you’ll notice the fine details that true Star Wars aficionados are sure to love.
The delicate silver and rose gold Princess Leia watch, for example, features a small Rebel Alliance nod in the watch face. The men’s Darth Vader watch looks heavily tactical, but is black, red and a subtle reflection of the iconic Vader suit.
The watches range from $206 to $475.
A totally unexpected partnership? Maybe, but for those who want to add some Star Wars love to their morning routine in a toned-down manner, this Philips Norelco shaver fits the bill. The Storm Trooper design doesn’t detract from the shaver’s functionality.
ComfortCut blades provide a protective shave, while a flexible head moves in four directions. The shaver can be used with either a cord or cordless, and it can run on battery power for up to 40 minutes.
Family-Friendly Star Wars Gifts
If your Star Wars-lovin’ pal has kids, it’s a good bet that they’ve likely passed on their love for a galaxy far, far away to the next generation of fans. So, get them something the entire family will love, with one of these Star Wars gifts appropriate for both kids and adults.
What family doesn’t love a good board game? This special edition of Monopoly was inspired by the second season of The Mandalorian, making it a great gift for your friend who just won’t stop talking about the hit show. Plus, it’s suitable for kids ages 8 and up.
Don’t care for Monopoly and want to go for a different family-friendly game? Check out Sabaac. A game invented within a Star Wars movie, Sabaac makes an appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story and has since become popular with fans. A card and dice game, it’s suitable for kids 10 and up.
If the holidays are coming up, you could opt for this set of matching holiday pajamas. Hanna Andersson offers matching pajamas for men, women, children of all ages and even pets, so you can deck out the entire family with some cool PJs that feature fun icons from the original Star Wars series.
And what family doesn’t love a little popcorn with movie night? As they watch their favorite Star Wars flicks, give them something to snack on, with this Uncanny Brands Star Wars Death Star popcorn maker. The hot air popper looks like one side of the Death Star, while the included bowl is the other side.
For families that are all about breakfast, though, you gotta go with this Millennium Falcon waffle maker from Williams Sonoma. It turns out delicious waffles shaped like your favorite spacecraft. It can even be used for hash browns, cookies or other items that you might prefer to make in your cast-aluminum waffle maker.
But maybe your friend’s family is more furry than not. If so, give them one (or a few) of these awesome options from Chewy’s Star Wars pet supplies collection. From collars to treat mats, plushies to beds, there’s a little bit of everything available, for both cats and dogs.
Luxury Star Wars Gifts
When you have a fandom as dedicated as the Star Wars fandom, it’s only natural that you’ll find some seriously luxurious gift options available with the Star Wars theme — we’re talking so luxurious that anyone not in the fandom is bound to say, “You paid how much for what?”
Here are a few to consider if you truly want to treat your fav fan.
Move aside, tiny crystal ducks and flowers that have been taking up space in your grandma’s curio cabinet. Swarovski has a way-cooler line of Star Wars crystal figurines that range in price from $125 to $15,000. From a tiny little Tie Fighter ornament to a limited-edition Millennium Falcon, these are flashy fan favorites that deserve a special spot.
For a piece of Star Wars decor that’s still just as cool, but a little less sparkly, consider this Hot Toys Star Wars Shadow Trooper exclusive figurine that stands at a 6:1 scale.
Similarly, this is another luxury Star Wars toy that’s not for kids. Rated as ages 18 and up, the Lego kit comes with more than 2,000 pieces and a collectors plaque for you to display after you finish completing this mammoth replica of everyone’s favorite droid, R2-D2.
That 2,000-piece set not challenging enough for you? You could go with one of Lego’s overall largest and most challenging kits ever. This Millennium Falcon kit is around $800 and comes with 7,500 pieces.
If your friend’s idea of fun is more so kicking it around an old-school pinball machine and less building Lego kits, you might want to opt for this pinball machine with a fun OG Star Wars theme.
Is it a bean bag? Is it a mat? Is it a gaming chair? Whatever it is, it’s super sleek, super cool and super comfy. Choose from either a Rebel or an Empire theme and then get to sittin’.
The unique piece of furniture is body conforming, features a removable cover that’s durable and washable and pet-friendly. It can be used as a chair, recliner, bed or couch. When you want to move it around your home, it weighs less than 20 pounds, so it’s easy enough to shift from living room to game room to bedroom.
Need to store it away? The chair is only four square feet when standing, making it convenient to shove inside of a closet.
