    If you fancy your toast a little on the Dark Side, then you must invest in a Darth Vader toaster and accompanying toast stamp. Not only does it look suitably awesome on the breakfast bar – wait till you show your mates the removable crumb tray! – it makes mighty fine toast to boot. The toaster imprints toast with the Star Wars logo while the stamp adds a brooding Dark Lord of the Sith to pour your beans onto.

    BB8 Droid (with free The Force Awakens Steelbook Blu-Ray)

    Price: £109.99

    Retailer:Zavvi.com

    We’ve been lusting after the smartphone controlled BB8 droid for over a year now. It moves just like the real thing, complete with ‘levitating’ head – which isn’t surprising as the makers Sphero actually designed the original droid for Lucasfilm. Now our partners Zavvi.com have convinced us to buy the little fella as they’ve slashed the price to £109.99 and thrown in a free Blu-Ray copy of The Force Awakens too. Now that’s a great way to celebrate Star Wars Day.

    Star Wars Lightsabre Bottle Opener

    Price: £11.75

    Retailer: Various

    This particular Star Wars gadget has been a regular at Shopomo booze-ups for almost a year. There is quite simply no cooler way to open a bottle of beer than by whipping out this device, assuming a serene Jedi-like demeanour and then slipping off the bottle to the authentic sound of a lightsabre’s whoosh. (The metal bottle top completes the electrical circuit which triggers the sound on cue). It always gets a delighted round of applause.

  • Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO Metal Can Coolers
    Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO Metal Can Coolers

    Price: £13.76

    Retailer:Amazon

    These R2-D2 and C-3PO can coolers kind of complement the bottle opener as the Star Wars accessory of choice for al fresco drinking parties. They doesn’t do much apart from sit there, keeping your can of beer or soft drink nice and cold while the rubber lining keeps your hand from warming it up. But good droids are always happy to help their master in any way they can.

    Price: £24.99

    Wow, this is the Jedi Fleece Bathrobe you are looking for. Truth be told, it’s part Jedi and part Jeff ‘The Dude’ Letrotski – it’s big, has proper wizard’s sleeves and a magnificently shadowy hood that is made for the two-handed rollback off the head, a la Obi Wan Kenobi’s signature move. Once you put it on, you’ll never want to take it off.
