15 Gifts for the Harry Potter Enthusiast

We all grew up with The Boy Who Lived. The story, the characters and the magical world stayed with us in ways we can't describe. Everyone has at least one—let's face it, way more than one—friend that's still secretly sneaking into Hogsmeade in their imagination. This is the guide to buying a little piece of magic for everyone who's still bitter that they didn't receive their Hogwarts letter.

1. Pop Bobbleheads, $10-30

Funko Pop! finally released a Harry Potter collection, and the Internet exploded with joy. Whether you want to give the gift of Harry, Hermione, Ron, Hagrid, Dumbledore, Voldemort or Snape, these make for the cutest collectible way to do so. If only the collection included every character! 

2. Time Turner Necklace, $10+

There are many variations of the Time Turner necklace, but the official collectible is by Noble Collection. It comes in both gold and silver colors, and if you want a less expensive version, you can find many on Etsy.

3. Custom-made Hogwarts Letter, $15

If you know someone who's still crossing their fingers for their Hogwarts letter, you can now give it to them! It's a gift that's equally as thoughtful as it is hilarious. Variations on the custom Hogwarts letters are scattered across Etsy, including full packages that come with more than just the letter, if you want to get fancy.

4. "He's a Keeper, She's a Catcher" Matching Mugs, $20

These matching mugs are the sweetest idea if you're buying for a duo of wizarding nerds, or if you're one half of said couple. Serve some warm alcoholic butterbeer in them for the holiday season, and you're good to go. 

5. Hogwarts House Ornaments, $10-30

There are so many Harry Potter-themed ornaments that you could make an entire list out of just that, but we think House ornaments in particular make a great gift. It not only shows that you know the person loves magic, but also that you know them well enough to know what House they're in. If you want to buy a full set of glass House ornaments, there's that, too. 

6. Christmas Sweater, $24

CreateMoreSleepLess on Etsy has a collection of Christmas-themed Harry Potter sweaters that are witty and perfect for all those ugly sweater parties. Don't celebrate Christmas? No problem, there's also this cute muggle holiday sweater

7. Sorting Hat Necklace, $20

C'mon, this is just so cute! For the friend in your life who was never really sure which house they belonged in, to remind them that it's ultimately their choice. Find it at ArtemisiaFreyja on Etsy

8. Illustrated Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, $24

Avid readers and collectors alike would be overjoyed to unwrap the illustrated copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Let's be honest, who wouldn't? It's sold at Barnes and Noble, among other places. 

9. Marauders' Map Scarf, $24

This scarf is utterly stunning, and is large enough to wear as a shawl. It's intricate and detailed, and even better, will help keep your gift recipient warm for the winter season. It's sold by FreshComfy on Etsy. You can also find an infinity scarf version made by BebeAndGeorge

10. Makeup Bag, $15

Know someone who's definitely not a Muggle, and doesn't leave home without a selection of makeup? The answer: Harry Potter-themed makeup bag. This pouch can easily be used for other items as well. It's made by CrescentCityCouture

11. Wine Glass Set, $18

Wine not? Grab a set here. There's also a set of shot glasses if your friend is more a hard liquor person than a wine lover. 

12. Collectible Art, $8-10

Give this gift to someone who needs to decorate their dorm room, apartment or house and would love to add a magical touch. Buy a frame to go with the print and make it easy for your recipient to hang it up. This print is made by InstantGoodVibes, but you can also find other cute prints, such as this Hagrid one

13. Dobby Sock Holder, $32

Dobby will forever live in our hearts. Have a friend who still gets emotional? Get them this rustic item from TheOwlsHootShop, and maybe even throw in a few Gryffindor House socks to go with it! 

14. Ministry of Magic Toilet Sticker, $3

Vinyl sticker for the toilet—sure, why not? This is the best gift for the Harry Potter fan (with a sense of humor) in your life, by CustomVinylDNA.

15. Golden Snitch Necklace, $25

This delicate Snitch necklace is handmade by EnchantedLeaves, and is no doubt a terrific gift for the wannabe Seeker in your life. 

Don't let the Muggles get you down, and collect everything on this list if your entire squad is composed of Harry Potter nerds.
