The wizarding world of , woman domination with its dazzling spells, nifty gadgets and magical creatures, offers a . Thankfully, there’s a plethora of merchandise to help make that imaginary world feel a little more real.
Here are some Harry Potter-themed gifts that are sure to excite any aspiring wizard.
I’d argue the best merch is useful merch. This Golden Snitch clock is something your gift recipient will likely use every day and is an eye-catching addition to any display or bedside table.
The bakers in your life will appreciate this guide on how to make everything from Pumpkin Patch Pies to Owl Muffins.
Another staple for bakers: cookie cutters of everything from Harry’s glasses to the Sorting Hat.
It seems more vendors are (thankfully) recognizing many Harry Potter fans are adults who are looking to add some magic to their everyday routines. This Instant Pot, embellished with a dazzling outline of Hogwarts, definitely checks that box.
Another charming addition to any adult’s collection: themed jewelry from Pandora. Options range from these Golden Snitch earrings to a spinning Time Turner pendant to a Hedwig charm with Platform 9 3/4 engraved on the back.
Alex and Ani
One more for the jewelry fans. This Time Turner necklace features a charm with a crystal hourglass and the inscription, «I mark the hours, every one, nor have I yet outrun the sun.»
This coin bank, with its intricate detail and elaborate dragon perched on top, doubles as a beautiful piece of home decor.
I understand this is intended for children, but I would not be opposed to owning this myself. This Hedwig toy features more than 15 sounds and movements to (kind of) bring this beloved companion to life.
These cards feature really cool illustrations of Harry Potter characters including Harry, Hermione, Dumbledore and Voldemort. You can choose a deck featuring one of four colors: red for Gryffindor, green for Slytherin, blue for Ravenclaw or yellow for Hufflepuff. There’s also an option to get one deck of each color for $40.
Barnes & Noble
For the Harry Potter and Lego fan, there’s perhaps no better option than a Lego set to recreate pieces of the wizarding world.
Train sets are cool. Hogwarts Express train sets are cooler. This 37-piece set is battery powered and remote controlled, and features sound clips from Harry Potter characters.
What cooler way to hold up your collection of Harry Potter books than with these fun themed bookends.
Here’s a beautiful staple to place within those bookends. This one’s a bit of a splurge, especially given the fact that it only includes the first three books in the series, but this illustrated collection can serve as a treasured keepsake and cosmetic collector’s item.
Barnes & Noble
If the person you’re shopping for prefers to pen their own thoughts or stories, this notebook offers inspiration to unleash their creative magic.
Coloring books can provide a fun and relaxing activity for people of all ages. This one features more than 80 illustrations of moments throughout the series, from Harry’s first Quidditch match to the battle of Hogwarts.
This chess set will let you relive the Wizard’s Chess scene in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone — just without the deadly battles.
Here’s another fun game option, but with a tech twist. Use Harry’s wand to draw clues in the air, which other players can view via the Pictionary Air app on their devices.
We all need a little motivation now and then, and these wooden quote signs are among my personal favorites. One reads, «Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it» and another says, «Don’t let the muggles get you down.» You can hang these 5×7 signs on the wall, or set them on a tabletop.
This large travel duffel bag will come in handy for holiday trips. What I like about Vera Bradley’s Harry Potter collection is that the branding is subtle, so most Muggles likely wouldn’t recognize Luna’s Spectrespecs sprinkled across this colorful bag. But fellow wizards will definitely notice and appreciate the magical touch.
Nothing is better for these cold winter months than a cozy throw blanket. The Potterheads in your life will appreciate having this themed throw for their next Harry Potter marathon.
This bag features an array of fun Harry Potter images, from the Sorting Hat to a Golden Snitch to Hedwig’s cage.
Potter-fy your Apple Watch with this silicone band featuring the Hogwarts Coat of Arms and a Golden Snitch.
This case, featuring Harry’s lightning bolt scar and glasses, is a fun way to store cosmetics.
I’m adding another clock to this list because I just got this one and I’m obsessed. This is not only an elegant timepiece, but it also has an hourglass on the back that makes it infinitely cooler.
If you’re craving the delicious Butterbeer from Universal Studios or Harry Potter New York but are nowhere near either of those locations (or don’t feel like making your own), this is a pretty good replacement. It’s a bit on the sweeter side but maintains that same creamy butterscotch flavor (and is also nonalcoholic). You can get a pack of four 12-ounce bottles for $19, or a pack of 12 16-ounce cans for $50. (The drinks may also come in handy while watching the on New Year’s Day.)
Last but not least, no wizard’s collection is complete without a wand. This option lights up, which makes up — at least in part — for the harsh reality that there’s little else a wand can do in the Muggle world. Unless we summon our imagination…
