13 'Harry Potter'-Themed Gifts For The Wannabe Wizard In Your Life
Harry Potter fans everywhere have been psyched to get a new and exciting glimpse into the wizarding world thanks to the November release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Although the film is set decades before Harry's time, seeing witches, wizards, and magic wands on screen again has made some fans (like me) nostalgic for the days of The Boy Who Lived. And that could translate to holiday shoppers saying, "Accio Harry Potter themed gifts," this year.
So what do you get the wannabe witch or wizard who has everything? Harry Potter merchandise, whether officially sanctioned or dreamed up by an entrepreneurial fan, ranges from low-key ways for grown ups to show off their house colors to gear that'll let kids pretend they're running around Hogsmeade shooting off spells.
Whether you're shopping for a Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff, you'll find some great gift options for Potterheads of all ages on this list (no visit to Diagon Alley necessary). From clothing to jewelry and games to books, you may end up wanting to keep a lot of these for yourself. Let's hope you've got enough galleons, sickles, and knuts in your Gringotts vault for one of everything on the list.
