Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo and Joonas Suotamo is Chewbacca in 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Jonathan Olley/Lucasfilm Ltd.

Solo: A Star Wars Story releases May 25—and we’re already having a hard time containing our excitement. It’s no secret we’re big geeks around here, and Star Wars ranks pretty high in the Grok Nation books.

The latest in the Star Wars saga, directed by Ron Howard, tells the story of a young smuggler named Han Solo (played by Alden Ehrenreich) who meets another smuggler named Lando Calrissian (played by Donald Glover) and a Wookiee named Chewbacca (played by Joonas Suotamo).

If none of those names mean anything to you, well, this might not be the movie for you. But if you have any friends who are as obsessed with Star Wars as we are, be sure to check out the gift guide below and purchase them a thing or two.

For everyone else, feel free to purchase something for yourself (we won’t tell).

Young Han Solo and Chewie T-shirt

Highlighting the days when Han was just a smuggler, Solo will portray how he first met his co-pilot, Chewie. Get this official merch tee for your co-pilot. Purchase on ShopDisney for $24.95

Young Lando T-shirt

And what would Solo be without his barely trustworthy friend, Lando Calrissian? We love this tee—almost as much as we love Donald Glover, who’s playing the young smuggler. Purchase on ShopDisney for $26.95.

Family sign

Sometimes being a Star Wars fan is a family affair; this wooden decorative sign can represent the family’s shared love. Available in a variety of sizes and in either pine or an outdoor wood upgrade, the plaque is fully customizable. Purchase from Benchmark Sign Gifts on Etsy.com starting at $39.99.

Millennium Falcon lego set

Although the Millennium Falcon has long been apart of the Star Wars canon, in Solo, we’ll finally get to see its origin story. Any nerdy fan would love the opportunity to build their own Falcon from scratch. Purchase this set from Lego.com for $169.99 or go for broke and get the most detailed Falcon set Lego has ever made with the $799.99 version.

Sugar cookies

Sugar cookies are made more delicious with Star Wars characters and imagery added to the top. These handmade cookies are made to order by Sugar Berry Sweets, and you can choose between traditional or chocolate sugar cookies (a.k.a. light or the dark side). Purchase on Etsy starting at $19.

Poster décor

There’s nothing quite like the original films—and these three works of art capture them in a modern way. They would make a nice addition to any wall. Posters can be made with or without the film titles. Purchase from Etsy starting at $25.99.

Leia and Solo keychains

Solo is about a young Han Solo, but it’s the Harrison Ford version in later years—with his brevity of words and feelings—that we’ve all come to know and love. Get this keychain set and give the other to the Solo to your Leia. (Bonus: You can customize the lightsaber colors!) Purchase from Sky Metal Designs on Etsy for $18.

Lando Calrissian dinnerware

A true fan knows that an original draft of The Empire Strikes Back featured a dinner party, where these plates and glasses from the Lando Calrissian Accents collection could have been used. Purchase items from the set as gifts on ThinkGeek, including dinner plates, salad plates, highball glasses for Han and Lando and even a wine stopper.

Chewbacca Pillow Buddy

Okay, so you can’t call him scruffy, but this adorable Chewbacca Pillow Buddy does look pretty plushy. Whether you’re gifting it to a child for cuddling or an adult for displaying (or cuddling), they’re bound to love it. Purchase on Target for $11.19.

Droid Inventor Kit

This droid kit is perfect for the young Star Wars fan who also has a penchant for technology and coding. This set comes with everything a kid needs to bring a droid to life and send it on customizable missions. Purchase on LittleBits for $99.

And be sure to purchase your ticket for Solo. Do or don’t do. There is no try.
