My son was given a Chamber of Secrets video game before he even knew how to read. Naturally I had to help him play. This opened a whole new world to us. We got the book series, and I would read them to my children on a daily basis. After each book we would watch the film. My children spent numerous Halloween’s creating costumes for themselves based on the characters.
Years have passed, and our books have become battered from rereading them. However, the magic never fades. You can enchant someone special in your life with the same magic, with this selection of gifts for Harry Potter fans.
Harry Potter gift ideas for the UK
Imagine visiting the studio where the Harry Potter movies were filmed. See the Forbidden Forest and Platform 9 ¾. Take a walking tour of London to see the entrance to the Ministry of Magic or the Leaky Cauldron. You can share this magic with someone you love by giving them a Harry Potter tour. There are many options including walking tours and bus tours. Some even include afternoon tea.
If they are planning a vacation to the USA, have them head to Orlando, Florida to explore the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. They can have lunch in the Leaky Cauldron, go on a wild ride through Gringotts, relax on the Hogwarts Express, and buy loads of candy from Honeydukes. Make sure to get them a platform 9 ¾ passport holder to keep their documents safe during their trip.
Cool Harry Potter gifts UK
As incredible as it seems, this really works! The lining of the cloak acts as a green screen when taking a photo or video, rendering the wearer invisible! This is a great gift for any age. I want one for myself!
A Harry Potter clock, reminiscent of the one in the Weasley home, will be a conversation piece in anyone’s humble abode. Instead of numbers, it has labels such as high alert or which hunt. For more fun, get them a sorting candle, inspired by the first year ceremony. Some of these candles change colour as they melt, revealing the colour of the house someone is to be sorted into.
Harry Potter mugs UK
“I solemnly swear I am up to no good”. This mug changes colour when heated to reveal the famous Marauder’s map.
Or get a cauldron mug for their favourite potions. Are they partial to a specific house? Then get a house mug based on whichever house they have been sorted into. Some come with a print to hang on the wall.
Harry Potter gifts UK
While major fans most likely have all seven books, they may not have the latest adventures. This set will take them through Newt Scamander’s quests in Magical Beasts and Where to Find Them. It also contains The Crimes of Grindelwald and the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child screenplay, which is the next generation in adventures.
The Library set is a collection of books mentioned in the original series including Quidditch Through the Ages, Tales of Beedle the Bard, and Fantastic Beasts, the book written by Newt Scamander.
For newer fans you can still get the Original 7 book set. I recommend this hardcover set, as these books will be read over and over again. The hardback version will preserve them longer. For those fans wanting to express their creativity, get them a Harry Potter colouring book. This isn’t just for kids!
Harry Potter gifts for kids UK
My youngest child has collected many of these Legos over the years. At first I would help him put them together. Then, as is the great thing with Legos, he figured out the pictorial instructions on his own. While I missed the special time we had putting them together, I enjoyed watching the stop motion videos he would make after hours of playing and filming his creations.
6. Time Turner
Harry Potter stocking fillers for the UK
These tiny gifts will be an exciting surprise to find in their stocking Christmas morning. Aren’t there times when you wish you could just go back and have a do over? While this time turner can’t actually give someone the ability to change the past, it does have an actual hourglass that really spins, making it a favourite keepsake.
A snitch fidget spinner is great for keeping a case of the fidgets at bay, for kids and adults alike. This is a great gift for children with ADHD or autism.
For fun on the run, slip an Azkaban Top Trumps Card Game into their stocking.
A 3 pack eraser set will bring the magic of Harry Potter into their classroom.
With Magical capsules, they use glow in the dark and water reveal spells to discover the hidden Harry Potter character and its accessories locked inside.

Harry Potter gifts UK for the kitchen

Harry Potter ornaments UK

Unusual Harry Potter gifts UK
I might have to get a set of these bookends for myself. I love the way it looks like Harry is pushing his trolley into the barrier, and it is coming out of the other side.
This toilet sign made me laugh, as I just reread the part in the Deathly Hallows where Harry, Ron, and Hermione sneak into the Ministry of Magic by flushing themselves down toilets.
You can also get a real sorting hat. Place it on their head. It will talk and sort them into the correct house. I think I have to get one of these too!
Wearable Harry Potter presents UK
They will feel like one of the Weasleys wearing one of these unique Christmas sweaters where the candles “magically” light up.
For a feel of luxury, get her a women’s velvet house robe.
Or get matching Hogwarts crest t-shirts for the whole family. They come in adult sizes as well as for kids. This way, if your family is sorted into different houses, you can still match. That happens sometimes, as in the case of Sirius Black being placed in Gryffindor, when his whole family had always been in Slytherin.

In this game, players have to round up magical beasts that have gotten loose at Hogwarts. The unique game board has folding parts to allow play both inside and outside Hogwarts.
