Happy holiday, Star Wars fans!

May the 4th is here again - a day in which fans of the space opera celebrate the franchise's film series, books, and culture. This is a global holiday, so chances are you will hear someone say "May the Force/fourth be with you" today. You might also see memes being shared across the interwebs, movie marathons on cable, and sales across the web on all-things Star Wars related.

And if you're a total diehard, you might even get a Star Wars toy from a loved one. You could do some gift-giving too, if that's your thing. Either way, we know you'd love to see a few Star Wars-themed gadgets, so we've rounded up some of the best ones to help you celebrate 4 May. We've included stuff like an official TIE pilot leather jacket and a Death Star planetarium.
