“May the 4th be with you.” The iconic line dates to England on May 4, 1979, when Margaret Thatcher became Prime Minister. The Conservative Party took out a newspaper ad that read, “May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations!” By 2013, the slogan had been fully appropriated by Star Wars™ superfans all over the galaxy.
We’re psyched about how much our own Star Wars™ gear has blossomed over time. Here are all the kitchen tchotchkes you (or your beloved fellow aficionado) need right now.
If you like your cocktails and sweets as cold as Hoth, have we got the stuff for you! Whether you need Yoda, BB-8 or a stormtrooper in your Old Fashioned, we’ve got you covered. (And check out this glassware!) The littlest Jedis can enjoy R2-D2, stormtroopers, and Darth Vader in sweet ice-pop form. (Blissfully, the set comes with two of each, so siblings don’t need to draw their lightsabers.)
Does the tough guy or gal in your house also make a mean layer cake? Suit her up with spatulas aplenty. We’ve got Vader. We’ve got Chewie. There are even the droids you’re looking for. We’ve got every type of apron, whether you need to rep the light side or the dark side. And don’t sleep on this super-cool cakelet pan.
Some mornings need a little extra oomph to get you able to use the Force properly. In that scenario, we recommend starting the day right. Consider, for instance, Millennium Falcon waffles, pancakes shaped like Yoda’s head, or stormtrooper toast. Serve them on a Death Star platter along with these rad plates. Wait for the smiles to start rolling in.
There’s just something about R2. He’s so cute in those little blue and white stripes. For the R2-D2 superfan, consider an Instant Pot, a toaster, a popcorn maker or even a tiny apron, for the littlest cook. We’ve definitely got the R2-D2 gadget you need to celebrate the day.
