May 4th may seem like just an ordinary day, but it’s a date that holds an important meeting for Star Wars fans. There’s usually a big celebration, as well as upcoming news about the series future (such as new comics, films, TV series,) etc. This day can also means new merchandise too. So all of that in mind, we thought there’s no better day to highlight the very best Star Wars gifts that’ll make the day extra special. After all, you might as well celebrate in style!
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
Our review of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga described how, thanks to the game’s “introduction of a more in-depth interface, more nuanced interactions, and mechanics like skill trees that are a staple in other games, LEGO Star Wars: Skywalker Saga has truly grown up to match its other LEGO siblings” and we stand by that! If our founder and resident LEGO lover, Robin Gray, loves it, then you just know it’s going to be a hit.
You can purchase LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga over on Amazon.
Star Wars Cable Guy: The Child (Mandalorian)
The Child aka our baby boy Grogu is always down to help out. Why else is he reaching out with the Force to help hold up your controller/phone? With this, Star Wars fans will not only be able to put their controller or phone on a safe perch, but they’ll be able to charge their devices too thanks to the 2-metre micro USB charging cable included with their purchase.
You can purchase Star Wars Cable Guy: The Child (Mandalorian) from MenKind.
Star Wars Vertical Lights Stormtrooper T-Shirt (Black)
At first glance, this may look like just your average Star Wars T-Shirt, and well, it is. But we’re called Gayming Magazine, so of course we’re going to go out of our way to find an officially licensed shirt looks cool as hell and lets you show off your pride. It’ll make you the coolest, queer geek at your Star Wars watch party, we promise.

Loungefly x Star Wars Darth Vader Light Up Mini Backpack
The collaboration between Loungefly and Star Wars may be ridiculously expensive for such a small item, but it’s hard not to get pulled into the hype when the mini backpack they’re selling comes with flashing lights. Maybe we’re just easy to win over with sparkly things, but that doesn’t stop this mini backpack from being a must-have on this Star Wars gifts list.
You can purchase Loungefly x Star Wars Death Vader Light Up Mini Backpack from GeekCore.
Star Wars Jedi Knight Collection
Star Wars games are only getting bigger and better, but some of the most incredible stories are to be found in games that you may never have even heard of. And no, we’re not just talking about Star Wars Episode I – Racer. The Star Wars Jedi Knight Collection combines the two games in one thrilling pack, and is just the thing you deserve to make May 4th legendary.

Star Wars: Light of the Jedi
Star Wars already has a lot of stories within both the prequels, sequels and originals – but The High Republic setting, set before the prequels, has a lot to offer too. Star Wars: Light of the Jedi is the first book in this new setting, and introduces you to a great cast of characters that’ll keep you entertained throughout. A quick warning though: this book will hit you directly in the feels.
