“Harry Potter” is one of the biggest, most successful book and movie franchises in the world, and with a legion of magic-obsessed Muggles to prove it. If you’re buying a gift for the Potterhead in your life, there are countless gifts that will add magic to their lives.
Choosing the best Harry Potter gifts
The seven “Harry Potter” fantasy novels are the brainchild of renowned British author J.K. Rowling. They follow the adventures of the young wizard Harry Potter, “the Boy Who Lived,” and his best friends, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, as they go up against dark witches, wizards, and “He Who Must Not Be Named.” The books were adapted into eight movies, which became one of the highest-grossing movie franchises of all time. “Harry Potter” resonates with people of all ages for the immersive magical world of witches and wizards, and for the timeless story of good triumphing over evil. It’s the magical gift that keeps on giving.
When choosing a gift for the Hogwarts-obsessed wannabe witch or wizard in your life, it’s important to remember the level of passion the series has inspired. First, ask yourself which Hogwarts house they claim the sorting hat will absolutely sort them into. You wouldn’t want to make the mistake of buying a Gryffindor scarf for the Slytherin alumni.
You should also decide on the type of gift you want to give. Would they prefer a prized keepsake like a customized Hogwarts acceptance letter or a personalized Harry Potter necklace? Maybe they’d pay all their galleons for a ticket to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter where they can experience the magic firsthand. Or are they itching to disappear with something useful like an invisibility cloak? Additionally, it’s important to remember the age of our young witch or wizard, as there are fantastic gifts geared toward kids as well.
How we identified the best Harry Potter gifts
“Harry Potter” chronicles the life of “the Boy Who Lived” and his best friends who go up against and triumph over the Dark Lord Voldemort. It’s a tale of perseverance, and never giving up in the face of hardship and loss. It’s a magical story of hope that’s inspired the imaginations and devotion of legions of fans worldwide.
We didn’t need a divination class to select the best gifts. Instead, we looked at trending items that are popular for their ability to inspire joy and excitement. These range from unique and personalized mementos that any fan of the series would cherish, to practical gifts that will allow them to get their magic on and live the “Harry Potter” experience.
If someone is a “Harry Potter” fan, we can bet our wands that they’ve pledged their allegiance to one of the four Hogwarts houses. We selected gifts specific to Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin, from items of clothing to accessories, which will allow them to proudly show off their house pride.
We chose various personalized items, like customized jewelry and Hogwarts acceptance letters, because these will undoubtedly make treasured keepsakes. Additionally, we selected cool, unique, and funny gifts that offer various experiences or that would be considered a coveted item, according to wizarding standards. We included everything from training wands for them to practice their spell-casting with and special edition book sets, to talking sorting hats and “Harry Potter” cookbooks to make their experience all the more real.
Tips for buying the best Harry Potter gifts
- Consider their Hogwarts house allegiance
“Harry Potter” fans take the wizarding world and all that it entails very seriously. As unusual as it sounds, when you’re buying a gift for the fan in your life, it’s important to know if they identify with a particular Hogwarts house. Someone who identifies as a Slytherin wouldn’t want to be seen with a Gryffindor designer bag.
- Be creative
Because of the franchise’s immense success, there are gifts to cater to everything a young witch or wizard could possibly want. Are they reading the books for the hundredth? Why not get them a Golden Snitch clip-on book light? Perhaps they think they know everything there is to know about the books and movies. Challenge them with “Harry Potter” trivial pursuit. It’s a great opportunity to get creative.
- Ask them
While “Harry Potter” fans can be fun to shop for, if you get it wrong, there could be a Cruciatus Curse coming your way. To save yourself the pain, ask them what they’d like. It doesn’t have to be specific, but if you have a general idea of what they want, it’ll make your gift-buying experience easier.
