Happy Star Wars Day! As my fellow Jedi, Ewoks, Sith, and Jawas celebrate, let’s take a moment to reflect on easy ways to bring your inner nerd to your office. Note – while these ideas are especially great for May the Fourth, they can be used to improve your cubicle all year round.
Update to a Star Wars Coffee Mug
Every morning starts with coffee – so why not introduce a new mug to the office? And hey, this will be easy to recognize in the office kitchen, so you can leave your worries behind that your co-worker will mistake your dull, plain Dixie cup for their own.
Surprise Your Co-Workers With a Star Wars Treat Bag
Nothing says “Star Wars fans are the friendliest and most interesting” like a Star Wars treat bag left as a surprise on your desk. Plus, if you have a coworker who has never seen a Star Wars film (gasp!), this is your perfect introduction to start your practiced Star Wars pitch. Special thanks to my coworker, Abbey, for the creation of these galactic snack bags!
