50 Best Harry Potter Gifts in 2019: Ideas for Kids and Adults

The gift-giving season is nearly upon us. Give your loved ones what they really want this holiday season: more Harry Potter merch. Here’s a collection of the best Harry Potter gifts available in a wide range of categories, for both kids and adults. Find the perfect Harry Potter gift for everyone on your list, but feel free to get yourself a little something as well!

Harry Potter Gifts Under $10

Harry Potter Series Pendant Necklaces

Which book from the Harry Potter series is your favorite? We all have our own personal choices. Even though Prisoner of Azkaban is the correct answer. But personal preferences aside, why not show off your favorite Harry Potter book on a classy pendant necklace? Multiple versions of the book cover are available, and it can be yours (or your friend’s) for under $10, including shipping.

Golden Snitch Keyring

A cute Harry Potter key chain makes the perfect stocking stuffer. This one is nicely detailed and is the size of an actual golden snitch, fitting in the palm of your hand. If you’ve been looking for the perfect golden snitch accessory at an affordable price, look no further. This is the one!

Hogwarts House Panties

For only $6.90 per undie, you can show off your house pride for Hufflepuff, Slytherin, or Gryffindor. For some reason, Ravenclaw panties are not available, and no, I’m not bitter at all.

Harry Potter Scrunchies

The ’90s are back, and so are scrunchies, in a major way. Put your own flair on the older style by rocking one in a cute Harry Potter pattern. Your Harry Potter friends will love these as gifts as well. Choose from the following patterns: Marauder’s Map, Deathly Hallows, Daily Prophet, or Marauder’s Map (blue). Buy each separately for $4.50, or collect all four for $16.

Harry Potter Peg Dolls

These cute little peg dolls are the perfect addition to any Harry Potter lover’s collection. Pick your favorite character for $5 each: Harry, Hermione, Ron, Voldemort, Hedwig, Hagrid, Dumbledore, Snape, or McGonagall; or get the whole set for $42.50.

Harry Potter Felt Plushies

More interested in gifting something soft and plush verses a wooden doll? Go for these adorable plushies. You can get two characters for $10 or one for $5.50. Choose from Harry, Ron, Hermione, Voldemort, Snape, Hedwig, Dobby, or the Hogwarts crest.

Books Turn Muggles Into Wizards: Enamel Pin

At exactly $10, this pin just barely works for your $10 maximum Secret Santa present. But, oh, it works. And it’s a super cute pin, too. This design was created by the wonderful Harry Potter Alliance. Read more about what they do here, and you’ll want to buy these pins for everyone on your list.

Harry Potter Gifts: Toys

Harry Potter Cat Cloth Doll

Looking for a gift for the person in your life who loves both Harry Potter and cats? Here you go: the perfect gift right here. Little kitty Harry is handmade from cotton and wool felt. He’s 6.5 inches long and comes with a precious little mini Hedwig that’s about an inch and a half. Because each doll is handmade, each is a unique gift unlike any other.

Harry Potter–Inspired Wizard Wands

Sure, the wand chooses the wizard in most cases. But to just simplify the process, Muggle Collection lets you choose the best wand option for all the Harry Potter–loving people on your gifting list. Choose from seven different beautifully detailed designs. The perfect gift for kids and adults who like to play wizards.

 

Buckbeak Steiff Plushie

This handcrafted Buckbeak hippogriff stuffed animal was made in Germany by Steiff exclusively for Williams Sonoma. In other words, this is a very fancy stuffed animal, and might be a gift best appreciated by fancy Harry Potter toy-loving adults. Either way, it’s suggested for children ages 6 and up. I’m assuming that includes me, a child in my 30s.

Invisibility Cloak

Yes, that’s right. This is an actual cloak of invisibility, just like in the Harry Potter books. The only difference is this cloak uses the power of technology rather than the power of magic. Just download the app, don the cloak, and watch yourself magically disappear!

Crocheted Harry Potter Doll

This is a unique Amigurumi Harry Potter doll, complete with a house scarf and a golden snitch. Get it before it’s gone, and if you miss this one, check out DecoARTCampagnani’s Etsy Shop. They promise to feature more Harry Potter Amigurumi dolls soon.

Golden Snitch HeliBall

This Golden Snitch Heliball is the perfect gift to get the person who really wants to up their Quidditch game. This Heliball not only flies, but you can customize its flight patterns from random directional flight to near vertical flight just by adjusting its wings.

Niffler Plush

These handmade Niffler plushies are insanely cute and soft. They’re so great, in fact, that people in the feedback section keep talking about needing to buy multiples. Seriously, can you imagine having a room full of these little guys? Cuteness overload.

LEGO Castle Model Building Kit With Harry Potter Figures

Want the ultimate LEGO-building Harry Potter experience? Well then you need this kit. This collectible kit has over 6,000 pieces and includes several Harry Potter figures, such as the founders of Hogwarts themselves: Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Salazar Slytherin and Rowena Ravenclaw. This is the perfect gift for teens and adults who still love playing with LEGOs.

Harry Potter Coding Kit

This is the perfect gift for your kid who’s interested in learning coding. First, you get to build your own wand. Then, using the corresponding app, you can use your wand to complete coding challenges. Talk about entertaining and educational!

Interactive Hedwig Toy

For the person on your list who always envied Harry Potter for his pet snowy owl, now they can have their own. This cute little interactive Hedwig toy responds to sounds, rotating her head 180 degrees in response to voice cues and clapping. She also makes 12 unique owl sounds. Super adorable.

Butterbeer Candle

What does Butterbeer smell like, exactly? According to Scently Delightful, it’s butterscotch, vanilla, and bourbon. Do you need more Harry Potter–inspired candles? This store also offers “HAPEE BIRTHDAE HARRY” (buttercream, cake, vanilla), Flourish and Blotts (mahogany shelves, aged pages, and leather), and house-themed candles as well.

Harry Potter Gifts: Experiences

Because experiences are often more memorable gifts than things, I had to include a few unique options on this gift list. If you want to get your loved one a gift that you both can experience together, consider one of the following options.

Potion Making 2.0: Molecular Cocktails Class

While not an officially licensed Harry Potter experience, The Cauldron’s potion making classes will definitely make you feel like you’re in the dungeons taking potions with Severus Snape. But with alcohol. You can currently take class at The Cauldron in Edinburgh, London, Dublin, and New York.

The Reptile House at the London Zoo

Want to give the Slytherin in your life a truly unique gift? Treat them to a trip to the London zoo, and then take them to the Reptile House, where Harry Potter famously chatted with a snake before setting him free. Try it out for yourselves, and if it works, this will truly be the most unforgettable gift ever.

LeakyCon: Harry Potter Convention

LeakyCon is the ultimate Harry Potter convention, and it’s headed back to Orlando for 2020. Guests will include Devon Murray (Seamus Finnegan) and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood). Gift the Harry Potter fan in your life with tickets to this event, and they will love you forever.


It goes without saying that gifts for yourself still count as gifts. So if you didn’t make it through this list without buying yourself a thing or two, me and you both, pal. (But we welcome you to try to make it through our earlier list of the best gifts for book lovers!)
