Giving a Gift from the Harry Potter Series

No matter what the occasion, it is sometimes difficult finding the right gift for someone. With the release of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Part Two on DVD and BluRay, there is much excitement. For the Harry Potter enthusiast giving them a gift that is Potter related will be appreciated. With holidays, birthdays and other celebrations there is always a need for gift ideas. Movies generate merchandise that is desirable by many. So! Here is what I hope will be a great list of gifts or at least give you some ideas to help make shopping easier.

Series of Books 1-7

  1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
  2. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  6. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2, DVD

For die-hard Harry Potter fans the end of an era is finally over with the recent release of The Deathly Hallows, Part 2 DVD. For many the books are what we knew first but the dread of the end came with the release of the last DVD with part 2 of The Deathly Hallows. The is a fun site called, Pottermore that many fans are involved with since it carries on the legacy. With the last book it was like saying goodbye to an old friend and the only thing one can do is read the series over again. As we all know that is not the same as reading it for the first time. If you do re-read I will tell you there will be things you have forgotten or things you completely missed. Movies can do the same thing with little things you notice the second or third time watching which is fun in of itself.

If you did not see the last movie, now is your chance to own it. Enjoy!

DVD Box Set, Harry Potter movies 1-8

Harry Potter DVD's Full Collection covering books 1 - 7, Wide-screen edition. This box set contains all 8 movies and that includes parts one and two of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This too would make a good gift for someone that has worn out some of their earlier DVD's of the series. Even DVD's can get worn out from use and can get scratches that can make it very hard to watch a whole movie.

Box Sets

Harry Potter Paperback or Hard Cover Box Set: I know my daughters books from so much reading fell apart. This would be ideal gift for someone that wants a nice set of the series. Books, 1 - 7.

This box set is a "special edition".

The box itself is beautifully designed with new artwork by Kazu Kibuishi, and the books create a gorgeous set that will look amazing on your bookshelf.

Deathly Hallows Part 1 & 2 Video Game

How would you like to play as Harry, Hermione, Ron, Ginny, Neville, Professor McGonagall and other's as they each play their part in the defense of Hogwarts and the destruction of Voldemort.

Available: Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, Playstation 2, Nintendo DS, PC and PC Download.


The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook.Want to know how to make Pumpkin Pasties or Molly's Meat Pie (Mrs. Weasley). My daughter loves this cookbook. It has been a good way of getting her to learn how to cook. The recipes are easy to follow.

My daughter has tried a number of the recipes and says they are good and easy to follow.

Harry Potter Wizard Chess Set

Deathly Hallow Part II

Which Harry Potter Novel Is Your Favorite?

See results

Hot Topic

If you are looking for t-shirts or hoodies to give as a gift they can be hard to come by during the holidays. Especially clothing from Hot Topic which seems to be a favorite for those that like either popular books or movies. Many items can be found online which is nice during the shopping rush of Christmas.

Do not wait long into the holiday buying season because they sell out fast.

More Ideas

If you are on a tight budget check out my Hub on Gift Ideas for Under $50. If you are being very generous with your gift giving, how about a hybrid vehicle. If you know someone that is or will be riding a motorcycle the best gift they can receive is a quality helmet. Hope this helps you on your way to a stress free gift search.

      My wife is a big fan of both. I'm a Hermione fan. Love the feisty little witch that she is. Twilight as a whole did not make much an impact on me but Allison Cullen did :) Love the pixie look. Great gift ideas for their fans...that is pretty much the majority of the world's population LOL. BTW, box sets are great since you can get better deals with them. One time, Scholastics sold them at 50% off.

      Some great gifts there. I have read all the Harry Potter Books, but I havent seen all the films yet. That is something I will have to rectify in the new year.

      Have a very happy Christmas.
