Star Wars may be taking a break from the big screen, but there's still plenty going on in the galaxy far, far away.


Disney Plus brought us The Book of Boba Fett earlier this year, while Obi-Wan Kenobi is about to hit screens later this month and The Mandalorian season 3 has finished filming. That's not to mention Andor, the Rogue One spin-off series, Ahsoka, focusing on Rosario Dawson's character, or The Bad Batch, the animated Clone Wars sequel series set to return this year.

As we're now in the month of Star Wars Day (May 4th), there's surely no better time to get some of the best Star Wars gifts and merchandise on offer to celebrate the epic franchise.

Read on to see what bags, clothes and collectibles we've found for you – or the Star Wars fans in your life.
