There’s so many reasons to love Howl’s Moving Castle. From the fantastical plot in the book to the adorable characters depicted in the Studio Ghibli film, this story has collected many fans over the years. If you’ve read the book and watched the movie, you probably noticed the major differences between the two. The book by Diana Wynne Jones includes a wider collection of characters and a plot that is a bit more complex and, dare I say, weird? (The weirder, the better, in my opinion) After all, there is a whole other world included in the book that we never see in the movie. Despite this, the movie keeps many of the characters and major plot points, but packages it in its own unique and charming way. Whether you’ve read the book or watched the movie (or both!), the story has a great deal of sweetness and humor. Either way, I adore them. One way I like to show that adoration is by indulging in some delightful goods that relate to the story. For this post, I’m focusing on Howl’s Moving Castle gifts that go along with the book, rather than the movie.
Don’t worry though, I include a few things from the movie as well!
If you’re like Howl, you’ll probably treasure the lovely earrings or journal I included in this post. If you’re snarky, but a real softie at heart like Calcifer, there’s enough goodies for any lover of the fire demon. And if you’re like Sophie, with a bit more magic than you thought you had, you’ll appreciate some of these practical and pretty gifts.
Like the book, here are 20 gifts that are sure to capture your heart!
