If you are shopping for Harry Potter gifts normally you would have to journey all the way to London’s King’s Cross Platform 9 and ¾ to find the true treasures.
That’s definitely an adventure most J. K. Rowling fans would gleefully embark upon, but I’ve done the hard work for you this year. And besides, with so much Harry Potter merchandise floating around the Diagon Alley’s of the Internet, how can you be certain which unique Harry Potter gifts will truly warm the heart of your favorite witch or wizard?
Whether you are shopping for yourself or not, I’ve broken down all the options into the following helpful categories and selected a few of the best gifts from each:
- Hoodies & Sweat Shirts
- Action Figures
- Board Games & Cards
- Misc Toys
Harry Potter Books Box Set
Do you know someone who is just starting out on their young adult literary journey? Or a young witch or wizard who has seen all the Harry Potter movies but hasn’t experienced the true magic of the books?
Then you also know it’s your duty to give them the Harry Potter books box set. Let’s face it: these books are canon and will be adored by generations to come. Start a great tradition by gifting the entire epic series in this dashing box no less!
Potter fans will relish this tome just as much as the actual students of Hogwarts as they flip through the legendary pages of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, and the Tales of Beedle the Bard.
Harry Potter Cookbook
There is no reason why everyone doesn’t already have the Harry Potter Cookbook.
Fans of J. K. Rowling’s wonderful series will relish the delicious recipes within and the joy that comes with creating them.
Favorite, unmissable dishes that you absolutely must cook are:
- Harry Potter’s favorite desert, Treacle Tart
- Molly Weasley’s delicious meat pies
- Kreacher’s French Onion soup
- Hogwarts Express Pumpkin pastries
Harry Potter Coloring Book
While you might be looking for books like Harry Potter, what you might not have considered gifting is a coloring book.
With the coloring book craze still at fervid levels this will make a wonderful gift for any fan of J. K. Rowling’s works.
The Harry Potter Coloring Book offers 96 pages of indelible scenes from everyone’s favorite moments in J. K. Rowling’s enchanting fantasy series.
Harry Potter Insults Book
Have you ever told someone that, “I can tell you didn’t get an O.W.L. in Transfiguration. Otherwise you would’ve done something about your face.”?
Well imagine the kind of insults you can come up with after reading the unofficial Harry Potter Insult book and a few butterbeers.
Your Quidditch games will never be the same.
As far as bookmarks go, no Harry Potter fan should be without one of these. They are so beautiful that there’s no reason to use them no matter what Hogwarts house the Sorting Hat placed you in.

I included this for the more well, ambitious, self-loving, and conniving fans of Harry Potter. If you have been reading this and thinking of getting all these gifts for yourself, then this Slytherin scarf is definitely for you!
