Whether you’re shopping for someone who’s been a Harry Potter fan since the late 1990’s or a new fan, a complete adoration for all things magical brings these fans together. If you don’t quite get why Harry Potter is such a big deal, a few gift ideas will help you pick out the perfect item for the fan in your life.
Gifts That Harry Potter Fans Will Love
When you are gift shopping, buy items that truly fit the personality of the person you’re shopping to pick out a gift that is anything but lame. You can amaze the ultimate fan with these fun gifts.
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.
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 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.
