Although many Harry Potter fans have collected every book in the series, if you know a fan that doesn’t own the seven books, this is a must have. Books can get lost over decades, but true book lovers enjoy owning a hard copy of books they have read. 

Recently, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was released, which also makes a good gift. This two-part play is set much later when Harry Potter is 37 years old and has kids of his own attending Hogwarts.

For anyone who enjoys studying foreign languages, buy a translation of a book. Harry Potter has been translated into about 68 different languages. Studying a book with a familiar series of events can help in learning a new language.

You can also buy delightful Harry Potter coloring books that adults as well as children would enjoy. 

Movies

In late 2001 when the first Harry Potter movie was released, Blu-ray movies weren’t yet available. Since technology has changed, some fans have not yet purchased the movies on Blu Ray. Buy the complete 8-film collection, or purchase the DVD/Blu Ray combo pack.

Releasing on November 18, 2016, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a spinoff and prequel to the Harry Potter series. With scriptwriting by J.K. Rowling, the movie also boasts excellent talent, including Zoë Kravitz, Eddie Redmayne, and Colin Farrell. Buy tickets to see the movie, or buy the screenplay.

Experiences

Experiences can help bring the book series to life. Since Harry Potter is such an imaginative book series, pretending to be a part of wizarding world is very exciting.

 Buy tickets to London, England where you see Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross Station. This is the station where Harry Potter and his friends board the Hogwarts Express, and to any fan, visiting here will be a magical experience. You can take photos of yourself pushing the cart as though you’re heading to the wizarding world!

To get the experience of joining Harry’s world without leaving the USA, head to Universal Orlando. Here, visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. You can stop by Diagon Alley where the wizards shop, and go to the village of Hogsmeade. Board the Hogsmeade Express to get to the two areas of the park. 

While the rides will be one exciting part of visiting, shopping is another fun benefit of your experience. You can taste the non-alcoholic, sweet drink Butterbeer, shop for wands, and buy delicious chocolate frogs.

    Good ideas! That platform is so fun! I didn’t know they actually had that in real life somewhere! Haha…I went to Universal last year (before I ever saw the Harry Potter movies, and I had never read the books either) but I still thought it was super awesome!! Now that I’ve seen all the movies I really want to go back because it would just be THAT much cooler! That was actually the funnest ride in the park! I wanna go there now!

    Omgosh, how much fun would it be to visit Platform 9 3/4 in London?! I know that they have one in Disney but something about visiting the “real” one is just too cool. I also love the idea of getting translations of the books. I’ve never thought of using that to encourage foreign language comprehension.

    I love this! My mother-in-law is a huge Harry Potter fan and has converted my little one as well. 🙂 These are some great ideas, especially with Christmas ‘just around the corner.’ I’m thinking some of those coloring books will be the perfect gift.

    Thanks!

    Lots of great ideas.
    For my eldest’s 21st I sought out earlier prints of the entire series from op-shops and secondhand book stores. As a family we just had one set of the books we all read and she had to move 3.5hrs away 18months before her 21st and was missing having the books, so it took me nearly a year to find all 7, some are a little damaged but she loved having early prints rather than new.
    I also found a replica time turner I am going to get each of my children.
    I found a little statue of a white owl years ago that my children loved having in their room.

    Oh, gifting an experience is such a wonderful gift! It’s not Harry Potter, but this year, instead of toys, we’re going to take our son to an indoor play-place since he is going to be six.
