10 Things to Consider When Browsing Harry Potter Gifts
1. Keep in mind their favorite character
A great starting point when thinking of the perfect gift is to know their favorite character.
Are they team Harry all the way? Do they love Ron’s sense of humor? Snape’s dark side? Are they secretly a Voldemort fan?
Knowing who their favorite is can help you narrow down gifts to the ones that will highlight their favorite character (or characters - we see you Weasley twins!)
2. Determine what items they already have
The biggest thing to try and keep in mind is what items they already have. If they are a huge Harry Potter fan, chances are they already have at least some memorabilia or other items.
Adding to their collection is a great idea, but you don’t want to add the same items they’ve already got!
Consult with their friends or family members to know for sure that they don’t already have the item you are thinking of getting.
3. Don’t make fun of their passion for the series
Any gift you get should be to celebrate their love for the series, not make fun of it!
Harry Potter fans are very dedicated, and whether you are equally as dedicated or not doesn’t matter, the gift is for them!
Make sure it is something they will truly love and enjoy using/wearing/reading/watching - you get the picture!
4. Think outside the box
There is so much more to the series than just Harry Potter. Harry is great, but there is so much more!
A truly special gift is one that doesn’t seem ordinary and is more personalized to the individual's interests.
Take some time to discover what they like most about the series and figure out a gift that really celebrates that!
5. Experiences are just as fun
There are plenty of Harry Potter themed experiences, and they are all incredibly fun. If you don’t have the budget to take your friend or family member to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, there are plenty of other events you could line up as part of their gift.
There are always bar crawls, trivia nights, and movie nights going on that are Harry Potter themed.
Taking the time to find the event (and offering to go with them!) is a great gift that they are sure to love and really enjoy.
6. Special editions are always, well, special
Sure, the person you are shopping for might have the Harry Potter series, but do they have the special edition? Do they have the movies complete with extended scenes or special features?
This can make an excellent gift for someone who loves the series or loves to collect Harry Potter themed items.
There is an abundance of special edition or collectors editions, perfect for any true fan of the series!
7. Consider upgrading everyday items
Notebook? Why not get one that looks like Tom Riddle’s diary! Pen? Why not get one that looks like a quill or a wand!
These would typically be ordinary, or dare we say boring, gift ideas, but when they become Harry Potter themed, they are so much cooler.
If you are shopping for someone who is in school, or about to head off to college, this is an excellent thing to keep in mind.
All school supplies could easily be Harry Potter themed, making the journey to school that much more exciting (albeit less exciting than going to Hogwarts)!
8. Clothing is great
Clothing is always a great gift option, and that is only truer when it comes to Harry Potter fans!
Why not get them their own house robes or scarf? Or, you can go with other more ‘regular’ clothing items that still have the Harry Potter branding.
Keep in mind accessories as well- earrings, rings, cuff links, the possibilities are endless!
9. Get competitive
All Harry Potter fans love showing off their knowledge of the series; why not put that knowledge to the test?
There are tons of Harry Potter-themed trivia games out there, and they make for an excellent gift that your entire family or friend group can enjoy together.
10. Decor can sometimes work
We only say sometimes because, for a true fan, they will expect nothing less than the best!
There is a big difference between party decor and actual decor someone would want to display at their house all the time.
Thankfully, there is plenty of beautiful Harry Potter themed decor that any fan would absolutely love, and that would all make for an excellent gift!
