Give your life a Potter makeover...
If this picture of Harry, Ron, and Hermione fighting Voldemort basically summarises your attitude to walking the high street at Christmas, then welcome to the club. Forget the real world, it's online where the best Harry Potter goodies can be found, and all at a decent price too.
Whether you're after shot glasses, high heels, loo stickers (yes, really), or a replica wand, this list has more Harry Potter magic than you can shake a stick at. Just don't too get carried away, yeah? Although a Ravenclaw cape may seem hilarious on Christmas Day, I'm pretty sure your colleagues will frown upon that kind of cosplay in the office. Probably.
Chocolate Frog with trading card
Okay, we know, we could have picked any characters collector's edition wand to feature in this gallery, but there's something delectable about pretending to be the villain. Plus, your cosplay loving friend will be closer to achieving his or her dream of slaying Comic-Con with a complete Voldy get-up, including full prosthetics. Long live the dreamers.
Complete Collection Blu-Ray box set
If you're still dumbfounded as to why your cousins have never, ever seen a single Harry Potter movie, this box set is the ultimate present. Frankly, they just cant go through life without seeing at least the first one, so this is really an act of kindness. You're doing them a favour!
Lego Harry Potter Collection (PS4)
If you're looking to enjoy some Potter gaming goodness this Christmas with friends, your best (and frankly only) option is the Lego Harry Potter Collection on PlayStation 4; two games for the price of one, both of which have been remastered since their original releases in 2010 and 2011. The collection follows the films in order, all the way from years 1 to 7 at Hogwarts, and features easygoing platforming gameplay all wrapped up in a charming Lego aesthetic. If your friend refuses to read the books or watch the movies, they'll have no excuse to ignore your Potter-obsessed ravings after this.
H for Harry Potter knitted jumper
Are you Howard, Harry, Harold or Hugh? Do you know a Howard, Harry, Harold or Hugh? Either way you can buy this jumper and sort of maybe get away with it at work, or shopping for milk in Tesco. Just don't tell anyone it's from the official Harry Potter WB Studio Tour shop if you value your street cred. Otherwise, then go forth and wear with pride. We salute you!
Harry Potter Funko Pops
You didn't think this list would be Funko free, did you? There's a Funko for every film, show, comic book or video game imaginable, so of course a Harry Potter Pop exists, with scar and specs on full show with that comically over-proportioned bobble-head. Harry's not the only Funko Pop available either; there's Ron, Luna, Dumbledore, Dobby, Snape, Hermione, and even a couple of mandrakes. Don't ask. Don't even think about questioning why. Just take a look, and pick your favourite.
Dobby bracelet charm
We all know without Dobby the house elf, Harry Potter would have been a goner at Bellatrix Lestrange's creepy mansion of death. So what better way to honour the most annoying movie character this side of Jar Jar Binks than by hanging him round your loved one's wrist? Dobby's not the only Harry Potter charm out there, either, including the sorting hat and a Ministry of Magic coin.
Hogwarts Deluxe Stationery Kit
Write letters the Dumbledore way with this Harry Potter stationary set. There's parchment-style paper printed with the Hogwarts crest, house-themed envelopes, a paper weight, journal and brass seal for wax all included, so you can pretend you're an Auror on urgent business for the Ministry. Now, where's a messenger owl when you need one?
Hogwarts Crest Light
If you're anything like me, you've been kept up well into the early hours reading page after page of great fiction books. Sadly, none of us mere muggles are capable of casting a Lumos spell to fill our bedrooms with an ethereal glow, but this laser etched acrylic Hogwarts crest light is just as mesmerising, not to mention perfect for keeping your reading conditions well lit.
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Limited Edition Blu-Ray
Harry Potter isn't just a person. It's an expansive world of magic and mayhem, and WB's latest cinematic addition to the Potter-verse, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is the latest example of that. The sequel to the movie has already been announced, but this Limited Edition is still worth your attention if you really want to go all out for a family member or close friend. It even comes with an adorable Niffler statue. N'awh.
Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit
Nothing says Christmas like a family fight about Harry Potter trivia, so now's the time to snap up this special edition Trivial Pursuit to ruin all your family's hopes of a row-free festive season. We recommend having a mixture of book-readers and movie-only fans on either team to avoid any domestic arguments, so perhaps grandma should sit this one out.
Tom Riddle's Diary iPad case
Fancy a Horcrux in your life? This Tom Riddle's Diary-inspired iPad case, complete with basilisk fang indentation, is the perfect gift for anyone who says Slytherin is their favourite house. We recommend watching the Chamber of Secrets on said iPad for a creepily immersive Potter experience.
The Hogwarts Library boxed set
J.K. Rowling did herself proud with Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages and The Tales of Beedle the Bard, proving that spin-off books can actually be quite brilliant. This Hogwarts Library box set is the perfect gift for collectors and avid readers alike.
Harry Potter laptop decal
Your hideously expensive MacBook Air is, like, so boring. Jazz it up a bit with one of these Harry Potter laptop decals, which can proudly display your HP fan credentials in plain sight. Not impressed with a lightning bolt scar and glasses? Don't fret: there are whole Hogwarts crest decals if you really want to double down on the fandom.
Ministry Of Magic vinyl sticker
One of J.K. Rowling's most inspired twists in the Harry Potter world was making the Ministry of Magic accessible by flushing toilets. Sadly, you're never going to be able to enter a magical Houses of Parliament through the office loos, but you can add a bit of humour to your own bathroom with these vinyl stickers. We're going to file this under 'what to get the person who has everything but taste' .
The Philosopher's Stone On One Page print
If your eyes need a workout and/or you fancy making yourself temporarily blind, then this book on one page print is the ideal gift. It incorporates the whole of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone on a single page, which is pretty darn impressive, especially considering they've also managed to sneak in an owl and a pair of Potter specs. The perfect treat for lovers of the original books.
Got a friend/family member who hates Halloween? Well, this Hogwarts cape will sort them out for the rest of time. Options for all four houses are available from the official WB Studio Tour shop, and we reckon all of them are essential wardrobe purchases. Add to this a replica wand, a few horcrux replicas, and a copy of Beedle the Bard, and you're going to be the coolest person at any party. Just don't go mixing houses... a Hufflepuff cape with a Harry Potter scar simply doesn't work.
Got a drinking enthusiast who also happens to be obsessed with Harry Potter? Well, look no further than these brilliant shot glasses. I'd recommend a drinking game involving the Golden Snitch glass and all the Quidditch scenes from the movies, but I'll leave the rules up to you...
You gotta hand it to Voldermort, who wouldn't want a full set of replica horcruxes tucked away in a sealed display case? No one, that's who, so pass on the joy to your nearest and dearest with this replica of Salazar Slytherin's Horcrux Locket. Potter fans will appreciate the reference, and anyone else can just appreciate it's beauty as a nice little piece of jewellery. Perfect!
No, it's not as good as the Butterbeer you can find at Harry Potter World or those underground artisanal bars, but Flying Cauldron's Butterscotch Beer is the next best thing. It's cheap, alcohol-free, and actually tastes pretty good, even if deep down you know you're just drinking some fancy variant of cream soda. Hey, no one can make the trip to Universal Orlando every day, so can you really complain?
