A Harry Potter Gift Guide With The Best Harry Potter Gift Ideas

Harry Potter grew up with my children or should I say they grew up with him?!? They consumed his books, faster than J.K. Rowling could write them, and they anxiously awaited the next book and then the movies. They had Harry themed birthday parties, wands and costumes. However, when they first knew Harry Potter, the selection of gift items was woefully lacking and we had to use our imaginations for every detail. Mind you, I do think it was great that we were able to come up with some good ideas for our own Harry Potter world but I do wish that some of the great merchandise opportunities had existed when they were younger.

Anyhow, the world is a different place now and whether you are shopping for a child, tween, teen or adult who loves Harry Potter, you are sure to find a magical Harry Potter gift idea for them here on this page where I have gathered together some of the best Harry Potter gift ideas and resources that I could find.

Every Wizard Needs A Wand...

The wand shown here is Harry's wand but clicking through to the link on Amazon and scrolling down a bit will help you find the wands of the rest of the series from the trilogy.

 

Harry Potter Wands

Harry Potter wands abound. If you are interested in a wand, you have a number of choices.

The Noble Collection has a complete line of Harry Potter themed wands. You can choose a wand like the one of your favorite character and you can choose to have it illuminate or not.

You can also choose a wand from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and no, you won't even have to visit because they are most definitely available online.

Finally, the most unique wand I discovered is one from The Wand Company, the Harry Potter Remote Control wand. It will control many of the electrical gadgets in your home (that have a remote control, that is.)

What a hoot! Change the channel with a wand. That's something straight out of Harry Potter's wand, don't you think? I cannot imagine Harry and his friends bothering with a remote control when they could use a wand to change the channel on their television, can you?

 

How About A Harry Potter Calendar?

The Illustrations of Harry Potter by Mary Grandpre calendar is a practical, affordable and fun Harry Potter gift idea. I love the idea of having the world of Harry Potter before me every day of the year. I am not sure how long they will keep making Harry Potter calendars. I hope it is for a long time but, since the series has finished, I am not counting on there always being a calendar.

Unique & Unusual Harry Potter Books

Harry Potter Hard Cover Boxed Set

Harry Potter Hard Cover Boxed Set: Books #1-7
Harry Potter Hard Cover Boxed Set: Books #1-7

If for some reason your Harry Potter fan does NOT own a complete book set, then you should definitely add one to your shopping list. This set is a hardcover book collection that comes attractively packaged in a box. If I were introducing someone to Harry, I would definitely want to do it with a hardcover set.

 

Order Your Copy Of The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook

The cookbook. True fans want to try out some Harry Potter-themed recipes whether that be the sweet treats or the savory ones.

 

A Harry Potter Blanket

Harry Potter Throw Blanket

You'll need to wrap up in a throw blankets when you settle in at Hogwarts to read your favorite Harry Potter book or to watch your favorite Harry Potter movie...in my mind, a throw blanket is a practical and fun gift idea. As with all Harry Potter merchandise, as they go out of production they become harder to find and more sought after and, therefore, more expensive. If you'd like to add a throw blanket to your collection, you would be well advised to do so sooner rather than later.

Shown here is the Northwest Company Warner Brother's tapestry-style or woven throw blanket, which features the Gryffindor crest on it.

A Harry Potter Movie Set

Harry Potter: Complete 8-Film Collection [Blu-ray]
Harry Potter: Complete 8-Film Collection [Blu-ray]

Wow. All eight Harry Potter movies in one package!

 

Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection on Blu-ray Disc - Years 1-7

As a fan, I would definitely say that owning the Harry Potter movies on blu-ray is a top-rated gift choice and Amazon makes it affordable with this Harry Potter boxed set that presents all of the movies, years one to seven, in one convenient boxed set at a nicely discounted price. Just to make the deal a bit sweeter, Amazon offers FREE shipping on purchases worth $35 or more.

The Harry Potter Wizards Definitive Blu-ray Movie Collection

Without any question in my mind, the Harry Potter Wizards Definitive Blu-ray Movie Collection is one of the BEST Harry Potter gift around. Not only will the recipient receive all of the movies (on 18 discs) but they will also receive 13 special feature discs that include 5 hours of never seen footage and extras.

A Harry Potter Game

Harry Potter Games

No avid Harry Potter fan would be without a Harry Potter game or two...

Harry Potter Clue is a great version of the classic game Clue and includes a Harry Potter style twist.

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets Trivia Game is a bit tougher but ideal for people who KNOW their Harry Potter facts.

Harry Potter Diagon Alley Board Game

Harry Potter's Diagon Alley board game is a race against time. It is recommended for 3 to 6 players aged 8 and up. Game time is about 45 minutes.

We were surprised at just how much fun Harry Potter Clue is. It brings a whole new depth to the classic game of Clue!

 

Decorate With Harry Potter

Use Harry Potter Gifts As Decorations

For Your Harry Potter Party or Décor

There are so many wonderful Harry Potter decorating ideas available. I reckon you would have no difficulty decorating an entire room or even your own home with replicas from Harry's world. You'll love the Triwizard Cup Lamp, the Marauder's Map Pillow, the Monster Book of Monsters Plush and more. Whether you chose a number of pieces or a single item, they are all wonderful souvenirs of our years with Harry.

And don't forget Fluffy, the three-headed dog. There are some impressive collectible and gift items which feature his likeness.

Harry Potter Candy

Harry Potter Candy

The set shown here is from Honeyduke's and features Harry Potter Chocolate Frog & Bertie Botts candies. Fans know this is only the beginning of the confectioneries that were consumed in harry Potter but they're a great start if you're looking to add some sweets to a gift idea.

Harry Potter Christmas Ornaments

Kurt Adler

Kurt Adler Harry Potter Polonaise Christmas ornaments are a beautiful, collectible item that will be used every year at Christmas and treasured forever. They're increasingly hard to find, which translates directly into increasingly expensive. I can understand why though. These are amongst the nicest souvenirs of a life grown up with the boy wizard. If you want a really, really special memory, these glass Christmas decorations fit the bill.

      @anonymous: I spotted this Harry Potter cross stitch book on Amazon. It's in French but if you know how to cross stitch do you think it would matter?

      When you talked earlier about "adults that love Harry Potter Movies", that would be me. Harry Potter movies were great... it's just a shame they had to end. :(Great page though and some awesome gifts... :)

      I never realized that you had so many Harry Potter lenses! I think if I was to choose one gift it would have to be the Invisibility Cloak. Wouldn't that be wonderful if it worked? Blessings to you Brenda
