May the 4th be with you! “The Skywalker Saga” may be finished, but Star Wars will live on — thanks to upcoming movies like Rogue Squadron and Disney+ shows like The Mandalorian and The Bad Batch. Right now fans are waiting with bated breath for Obi-Wan Kenobi, which doesn’t debut until May 27th.

Why not pick up a few Star Wars gifts today to keep you or your loved ones happy during the month-long wait?

Millennium Falcon illuminated model

What's better than a miniature Millennium Falcon to call your own? A mini version that also lights up.

This acrylic model has the features of the ship etched into the clear surface so it is a subtle little sculpture by day. Once darkness sets in, the Falcon can be illuminated in seven colors via a bright LED light. Use it as a desk lamp, night light or as the focal point in a collection.

"Bright pretty and super cool," says a shopper who bought the light for her significant other. "He LOVES it so much! It's bright and colorful, and I would most definitely order it as a gift for another SW fan!"

Death Star Beach Ball

Sure, the Death Star is intimidating in the movies, but it becomes all fun and games once the icon is shrunk down to beach-ball size.

This large ball (31-inches in diameter) lights up thanks to the included batteries. Don't think this ball needs to be reserved just for summer — use it as a hanging decoration in a game room or as a fun nightlight in a child's bedroom.

"Wow this thing is big!" says one reviewer. "It was a huge hit at a Star Wars party! The light-up feature works well and we played volleyball for hours with it, and it's still going strong two years later... Probably the best fan purchase I've made."

Vintage-style Star Wars tees

You don’t have to dress up in a costume to let people know you’re a Star Wars fan; a t-shirt can do the job nicely. These brightly colored t-shirts are both comfortable and affordable, with a pair going for as little as $20 depending on size. There are three sets available for ladies, with varying designs ranging from Baby Yoda to an old-school image of the original Star Wars cast. If shopping for guys or kids, there’s plenty of options to choose from for them as well.

Reviewers have high praise for these "basic" shirts, including one happy shopper who says, "These were better than I imagined! The quality of the fabric is good, they are soft and the thing I liked the most is that they fit a woman's body quite well! Meaning they fit my curves very well and didn't stretch on the chest or hang super loose on my tummy. Really recommend these!"

The Mandalorian mug

What could be nicer than starting your morning with the cutest pal in the galaxy? At a generous 11-ounce size, this two-tone mug is perfect for coffee, tea, or cocoa. Choose from nine different color choices for the interior and the handle so you can match your cereal bowl.

This mug style isn't your only option, though. If you're always on the go, opt for the 15-ounce stainless steel travel mug. Or if you want a bit of magic every day, there's a "morphing" mug that looks like a plain black mug until you fill it with a hot beverage — then Mando and Grogu appear out of nowhere, sort of like Mando often does.

Of course, when you talk about “building” and “Star Wars” there’s really one brand that comes to mind: LEGO. This iconic kit, which lets builders put together Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Starfighter, will please fans of all ages. The play will continue even after the build, thanks to the charming mini figures of Luke, Leia and General Dodonna, as well as their little droid buddy R2-D2, in the mix. With 474 pieces, it’s a nice mid-range challenge, and the finished 12.5-inch-long model will look great on a shelf when not in use.

Says a customer: "We have 13" cube shelves on either side of our TV and have been looking for the right size LEGO sets from our favorite fandoms to fill them. This fit perfectly with the addition of a stand to hold it up. We will enjoy this set for years."

These grandparents are happy too: "My seven-year-old grandson loves Star Wars and has many LEGO sets. He was able to put almost all of it together himself. There are so many parts I was concerned it would be too much for him, but he had most of it together in no time. The characters make it easy for him to use his imagination."

Lego Darth Vader Helmet

Teens and adults looking for more of a challenge will find it in this 834-piece replica of Darth Vader’s helmet. It’ll take a few hours to put it together, and then you'll have an amazing conversation piece for a desk. LEGO also makes kits featuring other bad guys like a Stormtrooper and the infamous Boba Fett, but Vader really is the most intimidating, don’t you think?

That's probably why it has a 93% approval rating at Amazon! One shopper says, "My husband has begun a collection of the Star Wars busts for his desk and this was another great addition. It is a very sturdy build, and with kids took him three nights to construct. Will definitely be buying the rest!"

It's definitely an all-ages product; this woman bought it for her retired sister: "She [...] loves to build LEGOs. She has so many, and it’s a great hobby for her that she enjoys."

If your giftee (or yourself) is more a lover than a fighter… or builder, then this animatronic Baby Yoda might be more their speed. The doll accurately captures little Grogu’s favorite thing to do, which is eat! He can hold snacks like his beloved blue macarons, nom on them and make the cutest little burps when he’s done. He’s sure to win your heart as easily as he did that of the Mandalorian Din Djarin.

Pop culture tie-in cookbooks used to be really cheesy, and not in the dairy way. These days they’ve gotten a lot better, with food that’s both in-universe-appropriate and something you’d actually want to eat. So why not celebrate the unique Star Wars holiday of “Life Day” that’s full of delicious recipes that would fit in at your very own winter celebration? If someone in your life both loves Star Wars and loves to cook, they’ll love trying out recipes like “Bantha Milk Hot Chocolate” and “Bantha Surprise.”

This miniatures game based on the iconic starfighter that Luke Skywalker pilots in the original trilogy of films. The pieces look great and the gameplay is pretty easy to pick up — and it can be played in as little as 45 minutes! It’s a great thing to do when you’re taking a break from a family Star Wars marathon.

Boardgame veterans love this game: "I've played a lot of different tabletop games and this one is my new favorite. The movement system is innovative, easy to learn, and brings tremendous depth to the game." And newbies can join in, since "it is very easy to learn the basic rules, and even beginners can appreciate watching competitive games after reading the notably short rulebook. Overall, X-Wing is now one of my all-time favorite games."

Kylo Ren Force Deluxe Lightsaber

Real collectors will go gaga for this realistic prop lightsaber. (Photo: Hasbro / Lucasfilm)

For the Jedi Masters and Sith Lords in your life — you know, the people who’ve seen every movie and read every book and pretend to move things with their mind — why not give them the ultimate gift? This replica of the hero-turned-villain-turned-hero-again Kylo Ren is gorgeous, movie-accurate and most definitely not for kids. The hilt is made with real metal, and the long blade is long, thin and bright: perfect for a costume on Halloween or at a comic convention.

This fan says it all, calling it "the lightsaber you're looking for," adding that it's "rich in detail, features, sound and brightness!" But again, a reminder: "this is not meant for heavy dueling!! A few light taps/clashing. Heavy dueling will cause blade to turn off often...fantastic build, look, sound and color...would absolutely recommend [it] to any collector!!"
