I’m always on the lookout for new and fun Harry Potter gifts because I love all things Harry Potter. I can’t wait to start sharing this fandom with my son.
This month 20 years ago Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was released here in the United States. Now we feel old. My husband gets a huge kick out of the fact that I am a Hufflepuff with a Manx Cat Patronus. Something about a badger and cat being the ultimate in not giving a four letter “F” word.
I have geared most of these gifts towards children as I’m looking forward to raising my own little Hufflepuff, though all signs point towards Gryffindor like his daddy. The stories really are timeless and as parents it’s only natural for us to want to share our love for Harry Potter with our children. Some of these are better meant for older kids. At the bottom I have included the Harry Potter Books box set because your kids will want a set of their own, right?
Harry Potter did something really great for an entire generation of children. It got us all reading books and building a lifelong love of books too. Not a lot of series have ever accomplished this task.
Harry Potter fans will always enjoy new toys, novelty items, and gifts. All of the products featured here are sure to be appreciated but Harry Potter fans of all ages.
Harry Potter Gifts For Fans
When you are shopping Harry Potter gifts for fans it’s important to find out some information about why they love the Harry Potter series and what type of fan they are.
Do they prefer the books to the movies? Who was their favorite character?
If you aren’t familiar with the Harry Potter series consider asking them to explain it to you or to show you the movies. Read the books together and discuss what goes on. You might be able to pull information in a way that doesn’t give away your intention to get them a gift. This also gives them an opportunity to share what they may already have.
Take the Pottermore quizzes and find out which house you and your friend belong to. If they are happy about the end results of the house consider buying them coffee mugs, shirts, socks, and more based on which house they belong to.
There is also just asking them what Harry Potter paraphernalia they would like to own and asking them to set up a wish list on Amazon. This will not only excite them but also help you to choose a gift within your budget and choose a gift you know they will enjoy.
Harry Potter Gifts For Kids
While some of these toys are meant for children, I know many of us big kids and fans would get delight from these toys too.paraphanalia
What an amazing way to teach your kid and build their imagination. Not only does the Kano Harry Potter Coding Kit teach them how to build a wand but it teaches them how to code with over 70 step by step challenges.
I love Lego and what Harry Potter Fan wouldn’t get a kick out of building Hogwarts Great Hall. You can get a lot of play time out of a hall like this.
Of course if you are building the Great Hall you probably should get the Hogwarts Express too. This way the little Lego figures can get to Hogwarts.
Set up the Chamber of Secrets and the Whomping Willow and you … I mean your kids, will have a complete Harry Potter set to play with.
Are you…r kids Quidditch fans? This flying golden snitch will delight them. While it takes a little practice to make this golden snitch fly it is a beautiful addition to any Harry Potter collection.
Of course no Harry Potter cosplayer or fan would be without their wand. Get the best replicas for all your favorite wizard or witches wands. This is Harry Potter’s wand.
Ron Weasley’s wand is another must have.
Though I am partial to Hermione Granger’s wand myself. With all three wands you can have a lot of fun casting spells with your kids and trying to disarm each other.
Finally delight your kids and let them get sorted into their wizard house. They can pretend to be first years at Hogwarts and get sorted into their houses.
As promised here is a paperback box set so your kids can read the series and share the Harry Potter fandom.
Best Harry Potter Toys
The best Harry Potter toys are the ones that actually get played with. They are the ones that help your kid to further their imagination into the world of Harry Potter. These toys can help your child to think outside of the box while also providing them hours of entertainment.
Pick toys that help your child to build fine motor skills like the Lego sets. I personally love the idea of the Kano Coding Kit because it teaches kids how to do programming. Learning how to do programming can lead to great paying jobs and opportunities in the future if they stick with it.
It’s like giving your kid a leg up in this world of technology. Use their favorite shows, movies, and books to expand their knowledge. This sets them up for a life filled with new opportunities as technologies continue to change and expand.
Harry Potter Fandom
I love just how timeless the Harry Potter stories are and I look forward to sharing these stories with my son in just a few short years. Harry Potter teaches bravery, kindness, and to stand up for what is right.
