Top 10 Magical Gifts for Harry Potter Fans

Why not treat a Harry Potter fan to one of our gifts? From collectables such as Funko Pop! Vinyl, to stylish clothing, you’ll be sure to make their day more magical with any of them. Arguably one of the most world-renowned franchises on the planet, May 2nd marks what Potterheads consider to be International Harry Potter Day. This year, it just so happens to be the 25th anniversary of the series – that’s a half a century of spell-binding moments.

With thousands of gift ideas to choose from, we thought we would give you a hand and have sourced our top 10 gifts for Harry Potter fans of all persuasions, from kids to adults.

1. Golden Snitch Necklace

Getting your hands on the actual snitch is considered the winning move when it comes to a nail-biting Quidditch match. Worth a hundred and fifty points, the aim of the seeker would be to obtain it before their rival seeker does.

Did you know the snitch used in Quidditch was originally a bird? Neither did we. Due to the bird becoming endangered, the original Golden Snidget bird was replaced with the golden snitch, which was similarly fragile and required the seeker to take extra caution when catching it.

You can now score some points for your own house with your very own Golden Snitch Necklace. Whilst it won’t disintegrate into your hand if you touch it (as is the case with the real one), it’ll upgrade anybody’s accessories collection and makes a truly unique birthday gift for the Potter fanatic in your life.


2. Wand Company Kymera Magic Wand

In the wizarding world, wands contain magical substances and are used by witches and wizards as a vessel to carry out spells. Wands are even said to bond to their owner!

This brings us to the contraption above. Is it a wand? Is it a gadget? Good news – it’s both. This isn’t just any collectable, it doubles up as a device to give you control of your audio devices – your phone, TV, and much more. So, it’s unlikely that this Kymera Magic Wand, courtesy of the Wand Company won’t just be lying around gathering dust. 

It’s also buttonless, which means its capabilities also consist of being able to learn up to 13 remote control functions. Ultimately, it’s fair to say that the recipient of this awesome gadget is going to look cool, maybe even a little too cool.

If you’re stuck on a birthday or Christmas present for someone special in your life, this ticks all the boxes as it’s suitable for every Harry Potter fan, be it your teenage daughter or your dad. It’ll be sure to put a spell on the lucky recipient.


3. Platform 9¾ Kids’ T-shirt

Pay homage to the iconic train journey that transports scores of budding witches and wizards to Hogwarts with this awesome Kids’ Platform t-shirt. 

Platform Nine and Three Quarters, the infamous platform where incoming Hogwarts students would board cannot be seen by muggles – to them, it appears as a brick wall. Witches and wizards, however, can go straight through to the other side, ready for their picturesque journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy (and probably accompanied by an abundance of snacks from the trolley – chocolate frog, anyone?).

This officially licensed, high-quality tee is guaranteed to be a hit with your little ones. It’s the next best thing to getting a letter inviting them to enroll at Hogwarts – trust us.


4. Gryffindor House Mug

If the person you’re on the hunt for a Harry Potter-themed gift for is partial to a caffeinated beverage, then it’s only right that they take a sip from this mug. 

Representing Gryffindor House, one of the four houses at Hogwarts where students would be placed (courtesy of the Sorting Hat), those in Gryffindor represent bravery and selflessness – much like the sacrifice that Harry’s parents made for him.

This mug is ideal for all ages, and we reckon it’s a winner for use in all environments. So go ahead and take it into the office, and forge your place as the Harry Potter fanatic instantly. 


5. Alohomora Entrance Mat

We all know that there are very few things that beat having that house-proud feeling. So what better way to show a fan of all things Potter that you’ve got their back like this Alohomora Entrance Mat? If you know that they love a good pun, this mat will go a long way, as ‘alohomora’ is a spell used to unlock things. 

This is something they’ll always look forward to coming home to and can add a healthy yet magical dose to their interiors. Know anyone that’s having a housewarming? This officially licensed piece makes an awesome New Home gift!


6. Death Eater Power Bank

If you’re going down the practical route, make sure the person you’re gift-hunting for always has a reliable source of power with this power bank, branded with the Death Eater logo.

Fighting evil, getting through your day-to-day tasks, commuting, and streaming your favourite shows can all take a toll on your beloved battery life. It possesses some truly magical qualities, too – with fast charging and the ability to charge most smartphones fully twice over, it’s something that every modern wizard or witch should carry around with them.

We all know someone that’s glued to their phone at home or a colleague that’s constantly asking to borrow a charger at work, so give them the gift of this spell-binding power bank. 

7. Beauty Relax Set

Who doesn’t love a good pamper? Indulging in a bit of R&R and pampering is something everyone needs, so help them to put their feet up and treat them to this decadent Beauty Relax Set. 

It comes with an absorbent turban that you can tie around your hair to make your locks dry quickly without causing frizz in the way that conventional towels do. Plus, the lucky person will also be rewarded with two cooling gel eye pads, which can reduce puffiness under the eyes – it’s a tough job being a witch or wizard (or staring at your phone screen for 90% of the day.)

8. Gryffindor Journal

This Gryffindor journal is perfect for allowing the recipient to scribble down their magical encounters – whether it’s using it as a diary, plotting to-do lists, or putting important reminders and numbers in, it makes a perfect present with a personal touch that they’ll surely cherish. It comes with a diecast metal clasp with the Gryffindor house emblem, so it’s a gift idea that really goes all-in when it comes to attention to detail.

9. Dumbledore with Wand Pop! Vinyl Figure

Possibly one of the most iconic characters in the series, Albus Dumbledore needs no introduction. A master of non-verbal spells, yet a humble headmaster of Hogwarts, his tenure at the school lasted for decades, with him also teaching classes for the Defence Against the Dark Arts. 

If you know they’re a fan of collectables, this Dumbledore Funko Pop! Vinyl figure is definitely up there with something they should have in their collection. They’ll be delighted with having a wizarding legend in their home. Funko Pops have a reputation for hitting the nail on the head when it comes to the detail of their figures, so it’s a no-brainer for someone that loves the films. 


10. Buckbeak Collector’s Plush

What’s not to love about this adorable Buckbeak Collector’s Plush? Ideal for both kids and big kids alike, it makes a great addition to bedrooms. You’re never too old for plushies – we promise.

Buckbeak was a hippogriff that was left in Sirius Black’s will and was originally meant to be given to his godson, Harry Potter. Instead, the young wizard kindly allowed the creature to be given to Hagrid, providing him with a much-needed companion. After all, being a gamekeeper can be a lonely job at times!

J.K. Rowling has crafted a masterpiece that has amassed a cult following for over two decades. It’s no wonder that the franchise’s significance is felt right across the world, so celebrate International Harry Potter day with our truly enchanting collection of gifts for Harry Potter fans today.
