51 Best Harry Potter Gifts That Are Straight-Up Magical

If you’re thinking of getting a friend or family member the best Harry Potter gifts, consider the list ahead your Diagon Alley for gifting stans of the series. Back in the 2000s, to love Harry Potter was to be part of a community—a community that knew all the iconic spells Hogwarts students were taught, belonged in a House (#Hufflepuff4Life), and wished endlessly that they’d received a Hogwarts letter in the mail. We stood in lines at the nearest Barnes & Noble the night before a book release, bought Harry Potter movie tickets weeks in advance, and TiVo’d the annual movie marathon on ABC Family every winter.

Most of us hard-core Potterheads have grown up now, and things have changed since we vicariously lived through one wizard’s magical journey. J.K. Rowling’s damaging words about the trans community—and more recent publishing of a novel that perpetuates dangerous stereotypes—has worn off some of the glint. None other than Daniel Radcliffe, who wrote a response that was published on the Trevor Project website, spoke to the moral dilemma of still loving H.P.: “If these books taught you that love is the strongest force in the universe, capable of overcoming anything; if they taught you that strength is found in diversity, and that dogmatic ideas of pureness lead to the oppression of vulnerable groups; if you believe that a particular character is trans, nonbinary, or gender fluid, or that they are gay or bisexual; if you found anything in these stories that resonated with you and helped you at any time in your life—then that is between you and the book that you read, and it is sacred.”

Despite Rowling’s behavior, she can’t take away how formative Harry Potter was in our young lives and how we carry those feelings with us still. We have friends who will always love Harry Potter, and we might even have our own kids by this point (or nieces and nephews) who are lucky to get to discover Harry Potter for themselves. Which is why we’ve put together a list of 51 straight-up magical Harry Potter gifts for new fans, old fans, and for the Potterheads who have bothered to read Hogwarts: A History of Magic.
