Harry Potter Gift Ideas For Her

When you’re a massive Harry Potter fan, life is magical most of the time. But for the muggle world, it’s now the most magical time of the year. It’s a time where we’re encouraged to swap Butterbeer for mulled wine, chocolate frogs for advent calendars and broom riding for sleigh riding. Of course, there’s no chance of that happening but one thing you do have to swap is shopping for yourself to shopping for other people (sigh). So if you’re looking for a present for a Harry Potter lover, you’re in the right place! Here are my top picks to make any Harry Potter fan happy on Christmas morning.

Hedwig Funko Pop!

Ever since I first saw Harry Potter in 2001 when I was six years old, I wanted a pet owl. At the bottom of every shopping list my mum made for her trip to the supermarket, I would complete it with the final most important item… an owl. How this trickery didn’t work, I really don’t know. However, all my Christmases came at once when this adorable Hedwig Funko Pop! hit the site! She’s the cutest little thing and would make someone’s Christmas very special. Not for you? We have lots of other Funko Pop!s too.

 

Whomping Willow necklace

 

My favourite kind of merch is the kind that only true fans would know. That’s why this gorgeous Whomping Willow necklace is perfect for a Harry Potter fan who likes their merch a little more subtle. *Disclaimer* this Whomping Willow comes without the attitude.

 

Forbidden Forest – Thestral t-shirt

 

 

When it comes to t-shirts, I’m very picky with the fit. That’s why this Forbidden Forest – Thestral t-shirt is the perfect gift if the person you’re buying for likes something with a more flattering fit. And the Thestral on the font is glow in the dark… now that’s seriously cool. AND it has a hood. Okay, it’s basically just the best top ever.

 

 

I’m a Catch Golden Snitch mug

I’m a big fan of mugs (the type of crockery, not the type of people… although my love life might say something different).  I think they’re a really good way of capturing someone’s personality; you get to be thoughtful without actually putting in too much effort. Also, you know that they’re going to use them. To take your mug gift up a notch, why not get one covered in gold that would make any Niffler go crazy. This I’m a Catch Golden Snitch mug is the perfect addition to any desk or cupboard and the perfect way to boost someone’s confidence (or ego).

Hufflepuff slippers

 

 

It’s against the law not to wear slippers on Christmas morning, right? Make sure no ones ends up in Azkaban and get them a cosy pair of slippers. I’m a Hufflepuff so of course I have included these ones but they are available in Slytherin, Gryffindor and Ravenclaw, too.

 

Hogwarts bathrobe

 

 

To take the comfort to the next level, add this Hogwarts bathrobe. It’s literally a hug in the form of a dressing gown. This, together with the slippers and a belly full of Christmas dinner, it will take you till the next Fantastic Beasts movie release to get up from the sofa.

 

Forbidden Forest Hippogriff shirt

 

 

This checked Forbidden Forest Hippogriff shirt is seriously cool and adorable at the same time. From the front, it has a very subtle Hogwarts logo and on the back it shows the magnificent Buckbeak standing proud. Again, a lovely addition to a Harry Potter fan’s wardrobe who like their merch less bold.

 

 

Lumos Beret

 

 

 

This next gift idea is for the fashion lovers. A Beret will always be in style and this one is no exception with gorgeous embellishments and ‘Lumos’ embroidered amongst them. A sophisticated addition to any outfit and a present that is bound to make any Harry Potter lover one happy wizard or witch on Christmas day.

 

Hermoine’s Time Turner

 

 

A staple in the Harry Potter franchise, the Time Turner is a timeless present (excuse the pun). Both rings as well as the clock can be turned to mimic the real thing down to the last detail… apart from the traveling in time part unfortunately (I know, we were disappointed, too).

There you have it. My top presents for a Harry Potter fan that is bound to have you winning points like you’ve just caught the Golden Snitch. Still not found what you want?
