“May the Force be with you.” is one of the most iconic lines in the history of Star Wars, right behind other sentiments like “I love you.”/”I know.” and “Obi-Wan, you’re my only hope.” It’s also been wildly commercialized as a May the Fourth—an unofficial (though kinda official) fan holiday where Star Wars fans celebrate what they love about the franchise, its characters, and everything in between.
It is also a day where Star Wars fans seek out new merch to snag—whether that’s the latest Hasbro Black Series figure that you’ve been waiting for to show up in your local store, a new Funko Pop, or the latest book from The High Republic. We’ve compiled a list of Star Wars swag you don’t want to miss out on this year.
While it may not be Grogu, you can bring home a pint-sized Ewok, Wookie, Jawa, or Rodian to cuddle with the new Star Wars Galactic Pals collection from Mattel. Based on the popular kid series by the same name, the toys are definitely geared towards Younglings—but that doesn’t mean you need to have younglings to add them to your Star Wars collection. Plus, they’re only $30 at Target.
Stoney Clover Lane
Stoney Clover Lane has been a mainstay since 2009, particularly in the southern states who embrace the Lily Pulitzer vibe, but they have been expanding into the mainstream with their recent collaborations with brands like Disney and American Girl Dolls. Today they unveiled a new collab with Star Wars that will help you travel in style. For between $78-$298, you can snag some fun luggage featuring Luke and Leia’s names, as well as “The Chosen One.”
Star Wars: Brotherhood
Mike Chen’s newest novel Star Wars: Brotherhood is the perfect May the Fourth gift to yourself if you have been dying for some Prequel Era storytelling. Not only does he perfectly capture the voices of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, but he introduces a new slate of characters that you won’t want to let go of once the story ends. While you won’t be able to pick this one up until next week, support an indie bookstore and pre-order it today! This is the book you’re looking for.
Star Wars LifePlanner
The Erin Condren best-selling spiral LifePlanner has been transformed into the perfect Star Wars day planner, which you can always use to plan out Life Day celebrations later this year! Featuring Boba Fett, the famed bounty hunter, on one of the covers in his iconic green, the pages are filled with playfully designed characters from a galaxy far, far away. You can’t beat this quality for $59.
You have probably seen Homesick candles all over the place, featuring inspired scents for the real-life home you’re pining for, but now they’ve launched a new collection featuring the scents of fictional homes we’re longing for. What does Tatooine smell like beyond all that dry, course sand that gets everywhere? Does the Death Star smell as sterile as it looks? And what about Endor? Does it smell like the Redwood National Park? For $45 you can find out for yourself.
Earring wearers rejoice! You can wear Grogu from your ears! This new earring collection from BoxLunch features the little green tot waving hello, eating some soup, looking gleeful, and playing with a little blue orb. It also comes with a star and some cuff earrings to help you change up your look, depending on how your ears are pierced. Somehow, I feel like Din Djarin would rock these under his helmet. Bring home this bounty for $17 from BoxLunch.
Star Wars: Padawan
Publishing later this year, Kiersten White’s Padawan novel is another great book to pre-order today. A companion of sorts to the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+, White's book delves into Obi-Wan's time as a teenager training under Qui-Gon Jinn. Based on the description, it’s bound to be a very wild ride. I have a good feeling about you spending $19 on this one.
Kyber Crystal Radiance
While this is the sort of opulence one might find on Canto Bight, who can resist the gorgeous gems from Star Wars Fine Jewelry? This one, in particular, depicts the heart of red kyber crystal and it evokes shades of Kylo Ren and Darth Vader. The bad boys we hate to love and love to hate. For a cool $350-$800 you can pick up something from this collection today. It may be a lot, but you’re totally worth it.
Speaking of the Dark Side, Tervis has a one-time-only offer of a pair of Star Wars–themed 20oz stainless steel tumblers with lids featuring both Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi. The Darth Vader tumbler reads “No Mercy. Strong in the Dark Side,” while Obi-Wan’s reads “Jedi Master. Strong in the Force.” This would be perfect for telling your boss which mood you’re in on a Monday morning Zoom call. For $66 they could be yours.
Pride is right around the corner, so why not grab some Star Wars merch today that showcases your Rebel Pride. Target has unveiled an adorable new collection of Pride merchandise, including quite a few Star Wars tees featuring iconic characters, droids, and even a few adorable porgs! These are fun shirts, which come in sizes for the whole family! Prices range under $20, which leaves you plenty of money to spend elsewhere (or donate!).
