What is there left to say about the Harry Potter series? It spanned seven books, eight films and 14 years, and continues to inspire people all around the world.
If you know someone who’s obsessed with the Potterverse, now is the perfect time to get them a gift they won’t forget.
There are a huge variety of options out there, so we’ve rounded up five of the best you can buy this Christmas.
1. Harry Potter Complete Film Collection – Best for binging
Although not the most exciting of Harry Potter gifts, a box set is a great gift for a Harry Potter enthusiast, provided they haven’t got it already!
This 2016 version features 16 discs of 4K goodness, including interviews with the filmmakers and exclusive additional scenes.
This is perfect for a festive binge, or if you’d just like to have all the films in one place. Blu-ray discs are supported by the majority of modern games consoles and PCs, so you should be future-proofed too.
2. GeekGear Wizardry Box – Best for birthdays
With official merchandise from the worlds of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts, this subscription box is perfect if you can’t decide which gift to buy.
Each month you’ll receive a specially curated selection of goodies, including a t-shirt in your first box. Other highlights include special teas and Hogwarts keyrings, all in a package that fits through most letterboxes.
If you’d rather this be a standalone gift as opposed to a recurring subscription, you can cancel anytime after you buy.
A month-to-month subscription is for
£24.99, while the monthly price drops if you’re willing to commit for longer.
3. Harry Potter LEGO kit – Best for teens
LEGO has dipped its toe into many a popular franchise, and Harry Potter is no different.
We particularly love Hogwarts’ Great Hall, reimagined in remarkable detail from the iconic plastic bricks. Aimed at children aged 9-14, the 878 piece kit should keep them occupied for a while.
Once construction is complete, you can play with any of the 10 official minifigures, which of course include the famous trio of Harry, Ron and Hermione.

Harry Potter LEGO here.
4. Wizard Training Wand – Best for kids
Want to go one step further and really feel like you’re a Hogwarts student?
The official wizard training wand allows you to trigger 11 different spells, and should keep the kids entertained for hours with light and sound effects. The wand is compatible with five different modes, although for three of these you’ll need a friend with the wand too.
5. Trivial Pursuit – Best for parties
Trivial Pursuit is something of a Christmas classic, and this twist should provide Harry Potter superfans the chance to show off their knowledge all through the year.
The six regular categories have been replaced with Potter-style topics: The Dark Arts, Hogwarts, Magical Spells and Potions, Magic Objects, Magical People and Animals and Magical Creatures.
This bite-size version is extra portable as it doesn’t require a board, but you can easily add it onto your existing game if you’d prefere.
With 600 questions, this should keep you entertained for hours.
6. Golden Snitch Light – Best novelty gift
It’s often the highlight of Hogwarts’ epic Quidditch matches, and you can put the Golden Snitch to good use in the real world with an atmospheric lamp.
A bell jar is illuminated by a beam of light which holds the Golden Snitch in place, while retaining a compact package at just 20cm tall.
It’s perfect as a bedside lamp. with a touch activated on/off function and USB power source.
There’s an eye on sustainability here too, with the use of Breakdown Plastic (BDP) making for easier decomposing should the product eventually make its way to landfill.
