Once a Potter-head, always a Potter-head. But chances are they already have posters, a replica wand and an animatronic owl; so we dug deep. Even the most dedicated fans will be caught off guard by the gifts we’ve found. While some scream “I love Harry Potter!” others whisper “I am completely obsessed with Harry Potter!”

Can you pinpoint the smell of bravery? How about loyalty or a sense of adventure? If this candle is as accurate as the sorting hat, that scent is a blend of cedarwood, nutmeg, lemon zest and “fireplace”— with a dash of vanilla and sandalwood. The Gryffindor in your life will feel right at home.

If your kid isn’t writing to you enough from college (and has an affinity for retro means of communication), give them a reason to put pen to paper with a Hogwarts-themed stationery and journal set. With the quill pen (no inkwell needed), they can write letters and also document the next chapter of their life. Owl and stamps not included.

The Patronus, in the HP world, is the animal guardian that embodies your most positive emotions. This beautiful snow globe displays Harry’s patronus, a stag, in a snowy wilderness with its ethereal glow. Bonus: shout “expecto patronum” as your recipient opens this. They’ll know what it means.

A complex pattern that’s easy on the eyes featuring pine trees, centaurs and unicorns with a light dusting of snow makes these Forbidden Forest sheets a dream gift for the right fan. Real ones can even spot Hagrid’s hut hidden in the woods.

Here’s a high-quality duvet for the sophisticated superfan. From a distance it looks like a simple luxurious bed covering, but up close you can see it’s embroidered with a repeat pattern of H’s and house crests. Paired with the Forbidden Forest sheets, it creates a subtle, mature Harry Potter vibe that’s encouraged well past the PG-13 rating of the movies.

While many fans dream of being a Quidditch star or potions professor, some yearn for the peace and quiet of the Hogwarts gamekeeper. Perfect for the plant enthusiast, this terrarium modeled after Hagrid’s hut can be filled with tiny potted succulents, air plants, gems or even LEGO figurines of favorite characters.

Ideal for any office, bedroom or den, this tabletop thermoelectric cooler can keep six cans at a crisp 36 degrees while being easy on the electric bill. Just right for marathon viewing sessions or the wizard whose potions keep going bad.

It’s not always easy when you have a Hufflepuff and Slytherin living under the same roof. If there’s one thing they’d both adore, it’s stockings repping their house. Celebrate differences and upgrade the mantle in the process. If you do have multiple Ravenclaws, no problem — you can personalize each stocking for an added fee.

A wall light with a wand remote for the witch or wizard who wants to practice their lumos spell from bed. Both mountable and free-standing, it can sit on a dresser or decorate a wall. The wand has dimming powers as well. Runs on AAA batteries.

This starter set comes with everything needed to get a beginner making their own Harry Potter merch: needles, two types of yarn (Gryffindor red and gold) and an instructional book. Watch them make their way from scarves to sweaters. And if they aren’t a Gryffindor, you can always supply some blue, green, silver or black yarn.

For any kid who wants to mark their territory while keeping Muggles out, a personalized door sign is the most efficient way to maintain privacy short of a colloportus (a spell that locks doors). Great for kids 12 and under, and (in an ironic way) for anyone 16 and older.

Bring the iconic chess scene from The Sorcerer's Stone into your living room with the Wizard Chess Set. What better way to stealthily encourage wholesome activities than with a tabletop game emulating one of Harry’s first trials? Each piece is crafted with impressive detail, and storage is easy with the pair of mini drawstring bags.

A Harry Potter-themed self-care kit with satin pillowcases and scented body wash. You know who to buy this for. Each set includes two pillowcases (choose king or queen size), one featuring the house crests and the other with Harry’s owl, Hedwig. The body wash sampler set includes four scents: chocolate frog, candy floss, marshmallow jelly bean and sherbert lemon.

A scientific take on clustered bud vases, this elegantly sits inside a sturdy wooden holder, making sure whatever is on display gets the sunlight and stability it needs (even if it’s just boring Muggle plants). Great for propagating cuttings.

In honor of the late great Cedric Diggory, star Hufflepuff athlete in The Goblet of Fire, this light-up Triwizard Cup provides the glow of a champion anywhere. Powered by a pair of AA batteries, the portable lamp can light the way on any treacherous adventure, be it a quest through the woods or a trek to the kitchen for a late-night snack.

A large-scale mouse pad would thrill any PC gamer or desk worker. With dimensions of 31” by 11.75”, this beautiful burgundy mat provides traction across a generous space.

Nothing looks better on a desk than a classy quill and inkwell—and nothing smells better than the lavender blend included with this ceramic essential oil diffuser. Yep, this inkwell is actually a reed diffuser. So while it can’t be used for writing, it pairs well with many aesthetics and makes for a thoughtful holiday or housewarming gift.

The Forbidden Forest is strictly off limits, but if you’re with Hagrid—lighting the way with his signature lantern—you’re fine. This ornament will mean something special to Harry Potter fans, but is also a charming and well-crafted light-up ornament that anyone can enjoy. Batteries included.

With a wicker base, canvas exterior and drawstring-protected interior, this tote is just what they’ll need for picnics, trips to the beach and day-to-day errands. It stands strong on its own (no flopping or tipping), and can keep a semester’s worth of books, robes and potion ingredients safe from harsh rain on trips to Diagon Alley.

Give the gift of security from any petrification spell with individual potted mandrakes. The plants won’t scream, but the neighbors might if they see them on the windowsill. Handcrafted out of resin clay, these faux plants will set the mood for any Harry Potter party (30th birthday?).

Buy It

This mirror is said to show one's true desire, so when the magic-believer in your life gazes into it, they’ll see only themselves and feel a sense of confidence as if they’ve just been praised by Albus Dumbledore himself. Call that magical motivation. The engraved quote reads backward as, “I show not your face, but your heart’s desire.” Perfect for any dorm (college or Hogwarts).

Buy It

While the real Dobby can be loud and needy, with a habit of inflicting pain on himself, LEGO Dobby is pure charm (and no noise). You won’t have to worry about him smashing his head, but if that happens, your giftee can just refer to the instruction booklet. Cake included; sock not included.

After decades, Harry Potter fans have finally been rewarded with the video game of their dreams. Hogwarts Legacy, now available on all major platforms, gives gamers the chance to live their own Hogwarts story. After getting sorted into (hopefully) the right house, players get to explore the school grounds, study the art of potions, and master defense against the dark arts.
