Harry Potter Hedwig Slippers

  • Comfy Gift For Lounging At Home

  • $$$$$
  • Cute, Quirky, Fashion

These adorable slippers are fuzzy inside and out but have a nonslip sole for safer walking on slippery floors. They would be great for slipping on before curling up with your favorite Harry Potter book or to settle in with some popcorn for a movie marathon.

The slippers are available in shoe sizes ranging from Women’s 7-12 or Men’s 6-11, so they would make a great gift for older kids, teens, or adults.


Harry Potter Special Edition Boxed Set

  • Classic Literature

  • $$$$$
  • Educational, Classic, Kids

One classic Harry Potter gift idea is the entire series of books. This set would make a wonderful birthday present for anyone wanting to build a library of classic books. The artwork on the covers gives you a picture of Hogwarts when the books are lined up.

This book set is great for kids ages 7 and up, although kids may want to wait a few years to read the later books as they get progressively scarier.


The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook

  • For The Cook

This cookbook includes several dishes that characters in the books loved and ate, like Harry’s favorite Treacle Tart, Mrs. Weasley’s famous Meat Pies, and the Pumpkin Pasties students on the Hogwarts Express wolfed down.

These unique recipes would be helpful for a Harry Potter-themed party or just to make for fun in an afternoon. If you’re baking with kids, try reading the books and then making a recipe together.


Embossed Bamboo Harry Potter Cooking Spoons

  • For the Potterhead Cook

  • $$$$$
  • Functional, Quirky, Kitchen

These embossed wooden spoons caught our eye as a great Harry Potter gift for someone who loves cooking. The scenes etched onto the spoons show different scenes from the books, and there are spoons for stirring, cooking, and serving food included.

The only problem we see with these is wanting to display them instead of using them! They would definitely make a really great gift.


Men's “Platform 9 ¾” T-Shirt

  • Show Off Your Fandom

  • $$$$$
  • Fashion

This Target tee has a wink to the Harry Potter novels, where Platform 9 ¾ is the secret train stop for those headed to Hogwarts. It’s an inside reference that fellow Potterheads will get and a nod to the series without being too obvious.

  • $$$$$
  • Fun

Adults have recently rediscovered the joy of coloring we all felt as children, and this Harry Potter coloring book has intricate designs so you can spend hours unwinding as you color.

LEGO Hogwarts Transfiguration Class

There are many Harry Potter LEGO sets to choose from, but transfiguration class was always a safe haven for Harry and his friends, so it’s a cheerful place to build.

This set is recommended for kids ages 8 and older and definitely not for children under 3 because of the small pieces.


Harry Potter Book Christmas Ornaments

  • Celebrate The Season

These ornaments are great Harry Potter gifts for anyone who takes their Christmas decor (or their Harry Potter decor) seriously. They come as a set of eight, so you’ll have one of each of the books to display on the tree.


Harry Potter Illustrated Collection (Books 1-3)

  • Good For Younger Readers

  • $$$$$
  • Educational, Classic, Kids

The illustrated books are a good introduction to the world of Harry Potter for younger children who may not be ready for the full series just yet. The first three books in the series are also the least scary.

This illustrated series is recommended for kids age 7 and up, especially if parents begin reading the books out aloud.


Hogwarts Castle Music Box

  • Keepsake Gift

  • $$$$$
  • Classic, Decor

This charming Harry Potter-themed music box features “Hedwig’s Theme” from the movies, and you can have a personalized message engraved on the inside of the top of the box. It would make a special birthday or Christmas gift for a tween girl.

Harry Potter FAQs

What Does Every Harry Potter Fan Need?

Every avid Harry Potter fan needs a copy of the books, for starters. They’ll likely treasure a boxed set, and many fans even prefer to have at least two (or more!) sets of the books – one to read over and over again and one to keep in good condition on their bookshelf. Many people also like to have a copy of each different version of the boxed sets, with different illustrations on the covers.

Other Potter essentials include copies of the movies on DVD or Blu-Ray, and a scarf indicating your favorite Hogwarts house.

What Are Harry Potter Fans Called?

Harry Potter fans are called Potterheads, and there are many of them! They watch carefully for news of new movies and rides at theme parks, take quizzes to figure out which Hogwarts house they would be sorted into, and often follow the lives of the actors from the movies as well.

What Is In The Golden Snitch?

The Golden Snitch is a flying ball used in the magical game of Quidditch played on brooms in the wizarding world. In the first book, Harry catches the Golden Snitch in his mouth. In the very last book – spoiler alert – we learn what was inside the Snitch. Professor Albus Dumbledore hid the Resurrection Stone inside, and its discovery helps Harry to ultimately overthrow Voldemort.

Is There A Harry Potter Monopoly?

There is not an “official” Harry Potter Monopoly game, but there are many sellers on Etsy who have created their own Monopoly board games. You can find some of them here.

Is There An Official Harry Potter Spell Book?

None of the spell books listed say they are official, but there are many “Unofficial Harry Potter Spell Books” available on Amazon, Target, and elsewhere. We like this one and this one.
