Oxygenics® Star Wars™ Darth Vader 3-Spray Handheld Showerhead (£25.66)
Darth Vader’s wrath is something you don’t want to invoke. But with this shower head from Bed Bath and Beyond, you’ll want him to be blasting jets of water at you for a clean and fun (but admittedly a little weird) shower.

Its great fun eating out of plastic plates that come in partitions when we were young, and this bento box from Amiami is going to make convincing any child to the dinner table so simple. I don’t know about you but food certainly looks much more appetising when served like this (and we certainly won’t judge if you’re an adult and secretly want this).

Star Wars Robe (¥19,440)
