If you’re wanting to share the Potter-inspired love this festive season, we’ve got you covered. 

Christmas shopping at the best of times can be, dare we say it, stressful.

Which is why when you have a fellow Harry Potter fan in your life, shopping can be made simpler by speaking straight to their heart in the form of something à la Hogwarts. 

From heat-changing mugs and a metallic golden snitch backpack to seriously cool LED lamps, we’ve compiled the ultimate list of presents to recreate the oh-so-magical world – and it can all be done from the comfort of your home.

And we’ve found e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. So peruse our gallery below for some inspiration and gift ideas to please the Harry Potter lover in your life.

Harry Potter Slug and Jiggers Diagon Alley Apothecary Polyjuice Potion LED Bottle Lamp Light

Harry Potter Golden Snitch Backpack

A backpack in the form of a golden snitch could be the accessory we’ve all been waiting for. From its metallic sheen to its novelty appeal, it’s both practical and cool.

This mug responds to heat in the best way: by changing the figures in the portraits. We know, Merlin’s beard!
