Top Ten Gifts for Harry Potter Fans

Harry Potter Gift Ideas

It can be quite difficult to get the perfect gift for that special someone. Especially if they are really into a fandom that you don’t know much about.

While some people prefer traditional gifts like jewellery or books, others prefer their gifts to be themed to their current obsession. One fandom that inspires a lot of loyalty, sometimes bordering on fanaticism is Harry Potter.

Non-fans buying for their Harry Potter obsessed loved ones can sometimes find the experience a bit overwhelming, so for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, I thought I’d create a kind of gift guide for family and friends of Harry Potter fans.

As a Harry Potter fan myself, I have based this list off gifts that I would love to receive. I am aware that some people shop on a budget, so I have tried to keep the price range reasonable. I have also left off the books and movies because, lets face it, your beloved Harry Potter fan probably already has them all.

So, in the interest of those poor sods stuck searching out gifts for the fans among us, here is my top ten list of Harry Potter themed Xmas gifts, from ten to one:

Number 10

Special Books

The average Harry Potter fan already owns all seven books, along with related titles, such as Quidditch Through the Ages or The Tales of Beedle the Bard, so why not gift them with special copies?

Special Illustrated Editions come with stunning illustrations that you don’t need to be a fan to appreciate, while the beautifully coloured Hogwarts House editions contain additional information about the Hogwarts houses, house alumni and more.

HP & PS Ravenclaw Edition

Illustrated Editions average AU $35-40 at Dymocks
House Editions average AU $20-30 (depending on hardcover or paperback) at Dymocks

Number 9

Miniature Harry Potter’s Birthday Cake Key-ring

“I’m afraid I might have sat on it at some point.” Harry Potter’s very first birthday cake is also available as a magnet or ornament, but I reckon the key-ring is the way to go.

HP Bday Cake Ornament

AU $17.52 at Etsy

Number 8

Newt Scamander Overcoat

Newt Scamander, the author (and hero) of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is one of my favourite characters in the Harry Potter Universe. If the man in your life is a Harry Potter fan, this coat is sure to make his day.

The stem and light in the base of this beautiful Triwizard Cup lamp light up with white LEDs when switched on. Unfortunately the LEDs aren’t replaceable, but even when they run out, the lamp will make a nice ornament.
