May the Fourth Be With You

It's a national holiday today - May 4th - officially known as Star Wars Day! What is it about Star Wars that manages to inspire millions of people year after year? From grown adults to preschoolers, there is a magic in this complicated story of darkness and light that we all recognize. Or maybe its just the reminder to recognize the power we all carry within - either way - today we ALL get to be Jedis. 

Here at HMR, we celebrate all things magic, mystical and otherwise so Star Wars is totally our jam. BUT this isn't your ordinary Star Wars gift guide. Here's the HMR guide to everything extraordinary about the force.
