Last Updated on
We are HUGE Harry Potter fans in this house, so we’ve spent a small fortune on souvenirs at the various Universal Studios parks around the world. I’ve learned two things over the years — it’s okay if you forgot to buy something at the official shop because (here’s the second lesson I learned) you can probably find it for a better price online. That’s why I’ve decided to put together this Wizarding World of Harry Potter Gift Guide for 2019!
This guide contains Harry Potter gift ideas. You’ll find Harry Potter LEGO sets and items inspired by the series including the invisibility cloak, clothing, robes and wands. It contains suggestions for Harry Potter gifts for fans of all ages.
This is a lengthy list of Harry Potter goodies. It took me hours to put it together, so I hope you’ll enjoy it. The best thing for me is that it gave me some gift ideas for the Harry Potter fans in my own life. Time to start shopping!
Hottest Harry Potter Gift Ideas for 2019
Before we get into some truly classic and amazing things on our Wizarding World of Harry Potter Gift Guide for 2019, let’s look at what’s hot and new this year. So much of this looks exciting — I hope someone will put these under the tree for me!
Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak Standard Version
Our little guy really loved his first trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter this year, so he’s been asking for all things Harry Potter. It’s pretty cute (but a little expensive!). If it makes me giddy and happy on Christmas morning, though, it will be worth it!
When he saw this officially licensed Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak, he immediately asked us to buy it. We’re getting this for him as a Christmas gift, so we haven’t tried it yet — but it looks cool!
Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak Deluxe Version
This is just like the standard invisibility cloak we’re getting Caleb, except this version includes a table-top tripod for holding your smartphone! He doesn’t have a smartphone, so he definitely doesn’t need this!
However, this Deluxe Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak is officially licensed and would make a great gift for the selfie-loving Harry Potter fan in your life!
All-New Harry Potter LEGO Sets for 2019
Kids (and adults!) go absolutely crazy for Harry Potter LEGO sets. That’s why I knew I had to include them in this Wizarding World of Harry Potter Holiday Gift Guide for 2019. Even better? There are a bunch of new ones for this holiday season!
LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle
Want to go completely over-the-top this year? This LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle builder set won the TOTY 2019 Speciality Toy of the Year Award! Our kids would go completely nuts over this!
The incredible LEGO Hogwarts builder set includes: 4 Harry Potter figures, 27 microfigures, the Chamber Of Secrets, the Whomping Willow, and more from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It’s a must-have!
LEGO Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire Beauxbatons’ Carriage: Arrival at Hogwarts
One of the most magical moments in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is when the Beauxbatons arrive for the Triwizard Tournament! This LEGO builder set helps you capture that breathtaking moment.
The LEGO Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire Beauxbatons’ Carriage set includes: 4 minifigures: Hagrid, Madame Maxime, Fleur Delacour, and little sister, Gabrielle Delacour.
LEGO Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire The Rise of Voldemort
Just as we celebrate the magic of the Triwizard Tournament, we must also recognize the tragedy surrounding it. This set brings back the scene in Little Hangleton graveyard when Voldemort finally returns to physical form. If you pull the brick lever, he actually rises up from a hidden compartment!
The LEGO Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire The Rise of Voldemort set includes: 4 minifigures — Harry Potter minifigure with wand and Triwizard tournament costume, Lord Voldemort with wand, Peter Pettigrew with wand, and a Death Eater.
LEGO Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban Expecto Patronum
One of Harry’s biggest assets is knowing the Patronus charm when fighting off the evil forces that threaten everything he holds dear. That’s why this moment from Prisoner of Azkaban HAS to be included in our Harry Potter Holiday Gift Guide for 2019!
The LEGO Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban Expecto Patronum includes: 4 minifigures — Harry Potter, Sirius Black, and 2 Dementors.
LEGO Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban Knight Bus
In another great moment from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, we go back to when Harry took the Knight Bus through the streets of London. That shrunken head wasn’t messing around!
The LEGO Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban Knight Bus includes: 3-level LEGO Knight Bus with hinged opening side panel and removable roof along with 3 minifigures — Harry Potter, Stan Shunpike, and Ernie Prang.
Harry Potter Gift Guide: Seasonal Gifts
Want something to help make the season even brighter? Our Wizarding World of Harry Potter Holiday Gift Guide for 2019 includes items to help you get into the holiday spirit! Check these out (p.s. I’ve got the socks and I absolutely love them)!

The Funko Advent Calendar: Harry Potter 2019 includes 24 pocket pops of all of your favorite Harry Potter characters. Squee!!!
Harry Potter Christmas Dish Towel Set
We do a LOT of cooking and baking during the holiday season, which is great because everything is so yummy. Unfortunately, it can also be pretty exhausting. That’s why we try to incorporate lots of fun elements in the kitchen.
This Harry Potter Christmas Dish Towel Set includes: both red and green dish towels featuring the Hogwarts crest surrounded by falling stars.
Harry Potter Ugly Christmas Sweater
You guys. You HAVE to have this ugly Christmas sweater! It features LED candles that actually light up and flicker to replicate the great hall (batteries included).
This Harry Potter Ugly Christmas Sweater is an official Harry Potter product. The 100% knitted ugly jumper / sweater is not printed and comes in various sizes (2XS, XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL).
Harry Potter Christmas Socks
Elevate your ugly Christmas sweater game by wearing some similarly patterned Harry Potter socks! What better way to celebrate the season than by keeping your feet warm with the images of Hedwig, your Hogwarts acceptance letter, and Harry Potter glasses.
These Harry Potter Christmas Socks are designed for Men’s Shoe Size 6-12, but fit Juniors and Women sizes as well. They are made from 70% Polyester, 20% Nylon, 10% Spandex.
Harry Potter Magic Photo and Video Printer
Remember how much fun it was to use a Polaroid and print your pictures as soon as you took them? Okay, maybe not all of you are old enough to remember, but it was really cool. Now you can do the same with this cool, portable printer!
The Harry Potter Magic Photo and Video Printer lets you bring your photos to life on 3” x 3” sticky backed, zero ink film!
Harry Potter Musical Glitter Globe with Rotating Train
Who doesn’t love shaking a beautiful snow globe during the holiday season. When I was a kid, I can remember sitting and looking at one for hours. The Bradley Exchange did an incredible job on this handcrafted and hand-painted sculptural recreation of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Bring the magic of the season into your home with this Harry Potter Musical Glitter Globe with Rotating Train. It even has LED lights to illuminate the windows!
Harry Potter Gift Guide 2019: Home Goods & Decor
We really love having little touches of Harry Potter around the house, which is why we’ve created a whole section devoted to home and decor in our Wizarding World of Harry Potter Holiday Gift Guide for 2019!
The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook
If you’ve watched any Harry Potter movies, you’ll know that food is a big deal. We’ve all drooled watching them during a feast in the Great Hall and now you can learn to cook some of those amazing meals!
The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook: From Cauldron Cakes to Knickerbocker Glory includes more than 150 magical recipes for wizards and Muggles, and I can’t wait to try every single one!
“I Solemnly Swear That I’m Up To No Good” Kitchen Apron
You want to protect your clothes while you’re whipping up a batch of Cauldron Cakes, so you’ll need a Harry Potter apron to do the trick. This might not be for everyday use, but it looks really cute for the holidays.
The “I Solemnly Swear That I’m Up To No Good” Kitchen Apron is 100% polyester and was designed to be machine washable.
Harry Potter Organic Bamboo Spoons Cooking & Serving Utensils
If you’re going to stir the pot and serve some salad, you might as well do it with cooking utensils branded with the Deathly Hallows, right? I’d never seen this before compiling this list, but this has shot to the top of my Christmas wish list!
The Harry Potter Organic Bamboo Spoons Cooking & Serving Utensils set includes a solid spoon, rounded fork, slotted spoon, and a slotted spatula.
Harry Potter Ceramic Spice Jars
Need a much cooler way to store your spices? Can you imagine seeing this on your countertop while you’re cooking every day? We can definitely see it in our near future (please, Santa)!
The Harry Potter Ceramic Spice Jars come as a set of four and feature the symbols of the four houses — Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin.
Harry Potter Personalized Cutting Board
Whenever we get to the scene where Severus Snape reveals his whole true story and we learn about his undying love for Lily Potter, I get emotional. With this, I can blame my tears on the fact that I’m cutting onions!
The Harry Potter Personalized Cutting Board is the perfect gift for the Hogwarts fan who loves to cook. It’s been seasoned with food-grade mineral oil to help it last a lifetime with proper care. Forever, you ask? Always! (Okay, I’m crying!)
Harry Potter Cauldron Soup Mug & Spoon
Okay, I’m putting this on our Wizarding World of Harry Potter Holiday Gift Guide for 2019, but this is PERFECT for Halloween, too! Oh, I can’t wait to sit on the couch with some soup in this thing!
The Harry Potter Cauldron Soup Mug & Spoon is ceramic and can hold up to 16 oz of whatever yummy goodness you put inside it!
Harry Potter House Crests Tumbler Set
Stay hydrated with these super cool tumblers designed with the Hogwarts house crests on them. I’m making Josh drink exclusively from the Slytherin glass even though he tries to say he’s Gryffindor. Ain’t nothing wrong with Slytherin House — own it!
The Harry Potter House Crests Tumbler Set contains four tumblers that can hold 10 ounces and are dishwasher safe!
Harry Potter Latte Coffee Mug Set
While this is a great gift idea for any Harry Potter fan, it’s especially sweet for couples. This is one of the most memorable exchanges in the whole movie series, and what better way to honor Snape than with this? *swoon*
The Harry Potter Latte Coffee Mug Set is officially licensed Harry Potter merchandise and contains two mugs, one that says “After All This Time” and another that says “Always.” So romantic!
Harry Potter Hogwarts Marauders Map Heat Reveal Ceramic Coffee Mug
We absolutely love heat reveal mugs, and with Harry Potter, it’s even more fitting! I mean, does it get more iconic than sipping warm Butterbeer from a mug that slowly reveals the Marauders Map?!
While we absolutely adore the officially licensed Harry Potter Marauders Map Ceramic Mug (which holds 11 ounces), clicking on the link takes you to many different Harry Potter styles!
Harry Potter Spellbound Twin Sheet Set
Several of our beds are decked out in Harry Potter bedding, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We even bought a whole Harry Potter bedding set for my adult daughter when she moved out.
The Harry Potter Spellbound Twin Sheet Set is perfect because it’s understated and elegant, but shows love for the Boy Who Lived!
Harry Potter “Battle Flag” Micro Raschel Throw Blanket
Our four-year-old really loves Harry Potter, so we knew he’d love this for his birthday this year. When he opened it, he was super thrilled and he has used it exclusively as his blanket every night ever since.
The Warner Brothers Harry Potter “Battle Flag” Micro Raschel Throw Blanket measures 46″ W x 60″ L, is 100% Polyester and completely machine washable (we’ve washed it many times!).
Harry Potter Remote Control Wand
Wingardium Leviosa! Okay, you probably won’t use that spell with this, but it’s still fun to say! You will, however, be able to magically change the channel from the Miami Dolphins to the Seattle Seahawks game. Sorry, Josh!
The officially licensed Harry Potter Remote Control Wand is a universal remote that works with any IR device, including TVs, Blu-ray players, and speakers. You can program up to nine gestures. Requires 2 “AAA” batteries (not included).
Harry Potter Hogwarts House Wall Banners
Oh my goodness. Harry Potter gifts aren’t just for small kids. When my oldest son turned 21, we surprised him with a bunch of wall decor for his room, including these!
The Harry Potter Hogwarts House Wall Banners are officially licensed, 100% polyester, and come with aluminum grommets for quick and easy hanging.
Harry Potter Mini Planner and Sticker Bundle
Get the new year off to a great start by getting the best planner around! You can’t go wrong carrying around a notebook with the Hogwarts crest on the front, right?
The Harry Potter Mini Planner and Sticker Bundle includes a 12-month mini planner, micro stickers, and faux enamel stickers.
Harry Potter Clothing & Accessories
We have so much Harry Potter clothing and gear. It’s almost embarrassing. Even with my weight fluctuations, I’ve got pajamas in a bunch of sizes. I’ve got to show my Hogwarts pride! That’s why we’ve put these great items on our Wizarding World of Harry Potter Holiday Gift Guide for 2019!
Harry Potter Ankle Socks Set
All three of us girls in this family have a drawer FULL of Harry Potter socks. Before we got TSA Precheck, I’d make sure I was wearing them at the airport security checkpoints so that I could spread the Harry Potter love to the TSA agents. 🙂
This Harry Potter Ankle Socks Set includes a 5-pack of officially licensed low cut, ankle socks in Juniors/Womens size 4-10. They are 70% Polyester 20% Nylon 10% Spandex.
Harry Potter Hogwarts Houses Knit Scarf & Pom Beanie Set
You might laugh, but we bought these for quick Halloween costumes this year. Benji and Oliver were the Weasley twins and Caleb was Hermione. They had robes and other stuff, of course, but these finished off the look and kept them warm in the freezing temperatures! It was perfect because this served as a Halloween costume and now they have something cool to keep them warm all winter, too. Bonus!
The Harry Potter Knit Scarf & Pom Beanie Set is officially licensed and comes in four Hogwarts Houses styles — Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin!
Harry Potter Marauders Map Infinity Scarf
For everyday wear, it’s hard to beat a good infinity scarf. You just wrap it around your neck a couple times and boom! It stays in place and doesn’t end up on the ground (which would KILL my anxiety!).
The Harry Potter Marauders Map Infinity Scarf is officially licensed, lightweight, and 100% polyester. It’s a great gift, so maybe grab a few for all your friends!
Harry Potter Adult Men’s Raglan Shirt and Plaid Pants Pajama Set
It’s just dawned on me that Josh doesn’t have any Harry Potter pajamas! What have we been doing all this time! He’s got a lot of other stuff, like these Doctor Who pajama pants, but that’s it! We need to fix this immediately.
This two-piece Harry Potter Pajama Set comes with a raglan shirt and plaid pants and is officially licensed, 100% polyester, and available in designs featuring all four houses!
Harry Potter Long Sleeve Hogwarts Raglan Nightgown
I’m a nightgown kind of person, except when it comes to Harry Potter. For whatever reason, I’ve got to have two-piece pajamas to show my love for Hogwarts. If you prefer gowns, though, this is a great option.
This raglan Harry Potter Nightgown features long sleeves, is 100% polyester, and machine washable.
Harry Potter Rainbow Hologram Raglan Nightgown
Honestly, this is another one we’re going to have to buy for Christmas this year. As soon as Caleb sets his eyes on it, I’m not sure he’s ever going to take it off. He loves gowns a lot and this is so adorable.
The officially licensed Harry Potter Rainbow Hologram Raglan Nightgown features the Hogwarts crest on the front, is 100% polyester, and machine washable.
Harry Potter Kids Pajama Set
While Caleb (and probably Oliver) might prefer the nightgown, we can totally see our Benji loving this two-piece Harry Potter sleepwear. It looks really roomy and comfortable, which is exactly what he’ll need because he’s a busy little guy!
This Harry Potter Kids Pajama Set is officially licensed, 100% polyester, machine washable, and includes a raglan top and plaid pajama pants.
Harry Potter Toddler T-Shirts
Finally, here’s something we can buy for all three of our boys. Just one pack covers all of them. Plus, how cute are these Harry Potter shirts? We’re going to have to plan another trip to Universal Studios!
This Harry Potter Toddler T-Shirts 3-pack set includes one red, one blue, and one grey shirt (all 100% cotton) featuring images from the wizarding world.
Harry Potter Hoodie Sweatshirt
Just look at the eye-catching design on this hoodie! First of all, I love a good hoodie (that’s what I collect when I travel!), and one that features all kinds of Harry Potter symbolism makes it even better!
This imported Harry Potter Hoodie Sweatshirt has a crewneck and is 95% cotton and 5% polyester. What a great way to stay warm and cozy during the holidays!
Harry Potter Satchel Handbag
I’ll be honest with you right now — I’m not a purse kind of person. So, the odds of me carrying around Harry Potter satchel are pretty low. My daughters, however, would probably love this!
The officially licensed Harry Potter Satchel Handbag features the Hogwarts crest and double closure. It’s made from faux leather and is water resistant.
Harry Potter Character Mini Backpack
Oh my goodness, does it get cuter than this? My younger daughter LOVES mini backpacks. In fact, we both carried one as we made our way through Japan (oh my goodness, this would have been PERFECT at Universal Studios Japan!). It came in handy!
The Harry Potter Character Mini Backpack is officially licensed and features little chibi-style caricature artwork of all of our favorite characters from Harry Potter!
Harry Potter Toys & Games
A great way for Harry Potter fans to show their shared fandom is by sitting down together and playing with toys and games from the franchise. This is probably the coolest part of our Wizarding World of Harry Potter Holiday Gift Guide for 2019!
Harry Potter Clue Board Game
When I was really small, one of my first memories was playing Clue with my grandmother. Back in those days, board games were so much more popular than they are right now. It’s too bad, because they’re a wonderful way to spend time with friends and family.
Bring back that old-school fun with this Harry Potter Clue Board Game which features moving rooms and secret passages! The officially licensed game allows you to play as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood, and Neville Longbottom!
Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit
One of our favorite things to do is to challenge each other at Harry Potter trivia. It can be hard to come up with new and creative questions, though. A couple years ago, we picked up this game and it evened out the playing field.
This Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit is compact and perfect for a quick game, even on a road trip or long-haul flight. With more than 600 questions based on the Harry Potter movies, you’ll have hours of endless entertainment!
Harry Potter Electronic Plush Mandrake
Remember when Harry Potter and the Hogwarts students learned all about mandrakes from Professor Sprout in The Chamber of Secrets? Now you can have your very own (but you might want to wear a pair of earmuffs!).
The Harry Potter Electronic Plush Mandrake will make you feel like you’re in Herbology class when you see it shaking and crying. The good thing is that you can put it back in the pot to make it stop! Requires two AAA batteries (included).
Harry Potter Mystery Flying Snitch
Who can forget the magic of watching their first quidditch match? One of the best parts of the first installment of the Harry Potter series, and an amazing creation in the Wizarding World, quidditch is highlighted by the magical flying snitch!
Bring the magic of quidditch into your own home with this Harry Potter Mystery Flying Snitch, but watch out for the beaters!
Harry Potter Talking Plush Dobby
One of the cutest characters in the Harry Potter series is Dobby, the faithful house elf pledged to serve the Malfoy family. Reenact your favorite Dobby scenes and enjoy playing with this fully poseable plush toy that features six of his well known phrases including, “Dobby has no master, Dobby is a free elf!”
Harry Potter fans of all ages will enjoy this fantastic Harry Potter Talking Plush Dobby. The brave house elf helped save Harry Potter, and now you can give him all the socks you want!
Harry Potter Tom Riddle’s Diary Notebook, Slytherin House Pen, & UV Wand
Keep your very own secrets with this unique diary notebook emblazoned with the infamous name of Tom Marvolo Riddle! Write with special invisible ink then reveal your secrets with a magical UV wand so only you can read your most secretive entries!
Perfect for the Slytherin in your life, this Harry Potter Tom Riddle’s Diary Notebook, Slytherin House Pen, & UV Wand is a great gift, but beware any dark secrets!
Harry Potter UNO Card Game
Looking at this made me realize that I really did play a lot of great games with my grandmother growing up. Thanks for all those nights spent playing UNO, Granny! I’m sure she’s somewhere rolling her eyes about Harry Potter taking over this version. 🙂
The Harry Potter Uno Card Game features the same Basic UNO gameplay, but with Harry, Hermione, Ron, and other magical characters from the world of Harry Potter. Even the Sorting Hat makes an appearance!
Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle Deck Building Card Game
Okay, real talk here for a minute. I have no idea what this is, but I have friends who absolutely love it. Plus, if you believe Amazon, it’s a bestseller! Regardless, it’s Harry Potter-themed and a board game. I’ll support anything that will get us to unplug for technology for a few minutes!
The Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle Deck Building Card Game is cooperative and allows you to play as Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Neville as you defend Hogwarts against Voldemort and the Death Eaters.
Harry Potter Coloring Book
Don’t laugh, y’all. I have this Harry Potter Coloring Book and I love it. During my twin pregnancy, there were days when I couldn’t do much more than sit in a recliner, and this helped me take my mind off my misery. Plus, coloring is so therapeutic and fun!
A word of advice: Get more than one Harry Potter Coloring Book. I don’t want my toddlers scribbling all over mine, but they love the whole Harry Potter gang and want to color, too. Just grab a couple and keep your own safe!
Harry Potter Wizard Chess Set
We all learned about Wizard Chess the hard way in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, didn’t we? It was so riveting to see Ron go from playing a board game (which Hermione called “barbaric”) to seeing him play a life-size version. It gets me every time!
This Harry Potter Wizard Chess Set is officially licensed and includes a full playing board and chess pieces — plus it just looks super cool.
Harry Potter Books Special Edition Boxed Set
My older kids read the Harry Potter books as they were released. They shared the copies until we got to Goblet of Fire, and then we had to start buying multiple copies at a time. No one wanted to deal with spoilers!
The Harry Potter Books Special Edition Boxed Set is great for our family. It not only celebrates the 20th anniversary of the series, but it gives a fresh set of covers for the younger kids in our household. This is a perfect gift for the Harry Potter enthusiast, as well as those who have never read a single page.
LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Express
I’m back to making notes for my own Christmas list again. I’ve just got to decide if one of these will be enough for all three boys. The Hogwarts Express is just so iconic. We were so happy to ride it at Universal Orlando Resort!
The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Express includes a variety of Harry Potter mini figures, such as Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Remus Lupin, the Trolley Witch, and Harry Potter. Plus, Dementor and Scabbers figures!
LEGO Harry Potter Hagrid’s Hut: Buckbeak’s Rescue
After the first two Harry Potter movies, Prisoner of Azkaban marked a major shift in the franchise. Things got a lot more dark and serious, notably the scene with Buckbeak and the Minister of Magic. Good thing Hermione had her Time Turner!
This LEGO Harry Potter Hagrid’s Hut: Buckbeak’s Rescue set will take fans back to that dramatic rescue and how that changed the course of history for Harry Potter and his friends!
LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Clock Tower
Goblet of Fire was an intense film in the Harry Potter series, and the Clock Tower played a central role. It was heavily featured throughout the film, so it’s not surprising that fans would love a LEGO version!
The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Clock Tower features the 3-level LEGO Hogwarts Castle Clock Tower, Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom, Dumbledore’s Office, and part of the Icy Ballroom! It includes 8 minifigures: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Fleur Delacour, Cedric Diggory, Viktor Krum, Albus Dumbledore, and Madame Maxime.
LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall
The first real glimpse we see of the wizarding world is when Harry Potter first arrives at Hogwarts in The Sorcerer’s Stone. From that point forward, the Great Hall played a major role in all of the movies, from festive feasts to bewildering battles.
The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall set comes with house banners, a movable spiral staircase, Potions room, treasure room, and magic items. It also includes 10 minifigures: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Susan Bones, Professor McGonagall, Hagrid, Albus Dumbledore, Nearly Headless Nick, and Professor Quirrell.
LEGO Harry Potter Aragog’s Lair
Whether it was during the movies, or the Forbidden Journey ride at Wizarding World of Harry Potter, I did my best to avoid looking straight at Aragog. Yes, it was sad when he died (and it was great that Professor Slughorn eulogized him), but I really don’t like spiders. Still, he’s a huge part of the series and this is a cool gift for a fan.
The LEGO Harry Potter Aragog’s Lair set calls back memories in the Forbidden Forest from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It includes a buildable Aragog spider, a tree with spider web shooting function, and 2 minifigures: Harry Potter and Ron Weasley.
LEGO Harry Potter Hungarian Horntail Triwizard Challenge
Remember when Harry Potter was entered into the Triwizard Tournament and had to face dragons in his first challenge? It was one of the most exciting (and terrifying) moments in The Goblet of Fire!
This LEGO Harry Potter Hungarian Horntail Triwizard Challenge set includes a buildable champions tent, bed, two cups, small shelf, a magic potion bottle, and 4 minifigures: Harry Potter, Fleur Delacour, Cedric Diggory, and Viktor Krum.
LEGO Harry Potter Whomping Willow Set
After a relatively sweet ending to The Sorcerer’s Stone, it was jarring to see the much more grown up-looking and sounding Ron and Harry battling the Whomping Willow on their way to Hogwarts after missing the train.
The LEGO Harry Potter Whomping Willow Set lets you relive that insane moment complete with spinning branches, the magical flying Ford Anglia toy car, and the Hogwarts magic castle model! It also includes Hedwig and 6 minifigures: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Seamus Finnigan, Argus Filch, and Severus Snape.
LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley Set
Do you remember the first time you saw Hagrid tap on the brick wall to reveal the entrance to Diagon Alley? It was mind-blowing to see the wizarding world of Harry Potter for the first time. When I went to the attraction at Universal Studios Florida, my knees buckled!
This small LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley Set takes you to all the shops Harry visited before joining Hogwarts as a first-year student!
Harry Potter Gift Guide: Ready for Hogwarts!
This final section of our Wizarding World of Harry Potter Holiday Gift Guide for 2019 is all about getting Hogwarts students ready for the new school year! The last thing you want is to get to class and be unprepared. Hermione would be VERY disappointed!
Harry Potter Illuminating Wand
While we strongly encourage you to buy your wands directly from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, not everyone is able to visit the parks. Plus, you may not need something as “fancy” for a casual or very young Harry Potter fan.
This officially licensed Harry Potter Illuminating Wand measures 14 inches in length. The tip of the wand lights up when waved, and with another flick of the wrist, it’s off again. Lumos!
The Noble Collection Harry Potter Wand
If you can’t make it to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, this is another good alternative. It won’t have as many features, but the craftsmanship looks amazing. We think any young witch or wizard would like this as a gift!
The Noble Collection Harry Potter Wand is officially licensed, measures 15 inches in length and is an authentic recreation of Harry Potter’s wand. It also comes in a replica of the original Ollivander’s wand box!
Harry Potter Nimbus Broomstick
Truth time — this broom would be a source of destruction in our household. Not only would the twins fight over it, but all three of the little ones would wreak havoc on our home (and each other) with this thing. Maybe in a few years…
For everyone else, the officially licensed Harry Potter Nimbus Broomstick makes a great gift! It’s a costume accessory, so please don’t expect to fly on this thing (or sweep the floor!).
Harry Potter Marauder’s Map
You can’t sneak around Hogwarts in the middle of the night without the Marauder’s Map. That’s the entire reason why it was left to Harry Potter — so he, Hermione, and Ron could monitor Hogwarts Castle and devise a plan of action against Voldemort!
This officially licensed replica of the Harry Potter Marauder’s Map is printed on parchment paper and measures 15.5 x 72 inches open and folds to 15.5 x 8.25 inches.
Harry Potter Adult Robes
You can’t get ready for a year at Hogwarts without your robes! Of course,they’re also great as Halloween costumes and for trips to theme parks. Heck, I saw full adults wearing them while walking down the street in Japan. My kind of people!
Harry Potter Child Robes
We bought three Harry Potter Child Robes this year. THREE. Benji and Oliver don’t even know Harry Potter that well, but if Caleb has something, they ALL have to have it. Good thing they’re all so cute!
These Harry Potter Child Robes are an affordable option for young fans so they can feel like they are part of the magic without you having to spend all the gold in Gringotts! Of course, these also come in Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin!
Harry Potter: Collectible Quidditch Set
For most of the series, quidditch was such a joyful part of the wizarding world. Honestly, J.K. Rowling is such a genius for creating such an immersive universe for her characters and fans. It’s like rugby and soccer mixed together — but played on brooms in the sky!
This Harry Potter: Collectible Quidditch Set is so super cool. It includes: 1 Quaffle, 2 Bludgers, 1 non-removable Snitch, and a 16 x 24-inch full-color poster all packaged in a Quidditch trunk, complete with lock and key!
Happy Holidays to Our Fellow Harry Potter Fans!
After spending an entire Saturday on this, we hope you enjoyed our Wizarding World of Harry Potter Holiday Gift Guide for 2019. Some of this amazing stuff has to stay at home, but a lot of it can be purchased ahead of your trip to Universal Studios.
When your child (or you!) already has their robe, you’ll feel less pressure to make impulse buys at the Universal store. While their prices are very reasonable for a theme park, I prefer to put my money towards things that are truly unique to the park (like the interactive wands or Butterbeer!). Buying online ahead of time gives you options. Plus, you’ll have holiday gift buying covered!
Happy holidays from The Anxious Travelers!
