Greetings Readers! Honest Abe here with a little bit of news on how to spruce up your home and/or office and let the Force flow throughout. If you recall, during my Comic-Con wrap up, I mentioned “a whole product line of Star Wars barware to be released in 2011" as well as interactive greeting cards. Well, they’ll be debuting at your local Hallmark stores very soon!

I don’t know about you, but I’m very excited to be adding some of these goodies to my home. I own a nice shot glass collection so you can guess which item I will be picking up first! Also, I can always go for a Star Wars coffee mug, and I'm loving the Darth Vader bottle opener. There are a lot of great gift items here, perfect items for "dads and grads." As for myself, I have been known to start my Christmas shopping early, and you just know these things won't last on the shelves long.

Here is the official Press Release from Hallmark along with some great photos of all the new goodies...

Star Wars Gifts Introduced Exclusively at Hallmark Gold Crown Stores

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (March 23rd, 2011) - Coming this April to a Hallmark Gold Crown near you, is a line of exclusive Star Wars gifts featuring quotes from the entire saga.

Hallmark has been making Star Wars greeting cards, Keepsake Ornaments and party goods, for years now, so creating a line of gifts featuring the wit and wisdom from the Star Wars universe was the logical next step,” says Aaron Heim, a Retail Editorial Strategist at Hallmark, “The addition of the gift line presents a new way to connect and celebrate with the fan in your life.

The line includes glassware, coffee mugs, travel mugs with sound, picture frames, sound buttons, desktop sentiments and even a bottle opener shaped like Darth Vader’s helmet. The gift items prominently feature quotes from the Star Wars films that convey messages of encouragement, affirmation, support and shared humor that we all know and love.

Star Wars has a strong fan base, but it is also a huge part of pop culture. It’s something that people of all ages can relate to—from grandparents all the way down to their grandkids—not just because of the fun and adventure we remember from the big screen, but because of it’s enduring characters and lasting themes of perseverance, friendship and honor,” says Aaron.

Items range in price from $5.95 to $16.95 and are available in limited quantities while supplies last starting in April. They make the perfect gift for Grads, Dads, or anyone who shares the love of the Star Wars Universe.
