The point is, moms make the world turn and if the mama in your life harbors Hufflepuff fantasies, dreams of riding a broom, or just prefers to spend her free time re-reading The Sorcerer’s Stone, she’ll love any one of these items.

Let’s face it, short of surprising her with tickets to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ at Universal Orlando, one or a handful of these Hogwarts-approved items will have to do. So break out some of those charm school lessons, obliviate her everyday exhaustion, and say thanks for all she does for you with a gift even a simpering Slytherin would love.
