Love them, you will.

Death Star waffle maker

If you love Star Wars—like, can quote every movie from memory and still come up with a solid defense for Hayden Christensen’s role as teen-angst Anakin Skywalker—you better believe you’ll be inundated with all kinds of George Lucas-approved presents this holiday season.

With all that’s out there (and some of it’s truly out there), it can be easy for a Rogue One to go off the rails, getting you the kind of gift they’ll expect to see proudly displayed in your home … that you really, truly wish they didn’t buy you. Nudge them away from the dark side with these awesomely geeky gifts for your kitchen.

1. Death Star Waffle Maker

Just like the Death Star was destroyed in a single shot, you’ll devour these waffles in a single bite. (And if the Death Star isn’t your thing, you can also get waffles pressed into the likeness of BB-8, Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper.) Find them at ThinkGeek or on Amazon.

2. Stormtrooper Oven Mitts

How bad*ss will you look pulling those Santa’s Trash Cookies out of the oven wearing a set of Stormtrooper gloves?! Oh, not at all? Hmm … odd. Well, at least you’ll have fun wearing these, which you can snag on Amazon.

3. Star Wars Geeki Tiki Drinks

Admit it: Han probably wouldn’t have shot first if he’d chilled out with a tropical drink back at the cantina. Score some at GameStop.

4. Lightsaber Chopsticks

May the force be with you … and your sushi rolls. As if these weren’t delightfully nerdy enough, the chopsticks light up—and you can choose whether you’re more Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Darth Vader or Mace mutha-effin’ Windu. ChopSabers makes them.

5. BB-8 Kitchen Timer

Blah, blah, blah, you use your phone as a timer and therefore don’t need such an antiquated kitchen gadget. Um, have you seen BB-8?! This cute little android will change your mind faster than you can say “Merry Christmas” in Wookie. Get one on Amazon.

Bonus: Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Mini-Fridge

This might be out of the typical gift-giving price range, but hey, maybe Santa will treat you if you’ve been really good. This mini fridge holds 18 cans—and it’s pretty perfect for all of those times you’ve whispered, “I love you” and “I know” to your Diet Coke stash. You can order one on Amazon.
