If you’re anything like us, chances are, you’ve been celebrating Christmas since the day after Halloween. The aforementioned holidays are our favorite, so we sort of turn them into…seasons…if you will.
We start decorating for Halloween in September and our Christmas decor goes up on November first. Yes, we’ve seen the memes talking about ice storms being blamed on people who put their trees up before Thanksgiving, and we’ll accept that responsibility.
Now that Thanksgiving has concluded, however, we’re sure more people are getting into the true holiday spirit so we’ve decided to mix a few of our favorite things together for some upcoming articles.
What better way to prepare for Christmas than by revisiting Hogwarts in a number of ways. From Christmas presents for your favorite Harry Potter loving pal to fanfiction that’ll make you feel all warm and cozy, we’ve got it all.
We’re starting off with those gifts to get your Potterhead friends and trust us, we know those are important things to consider. There are socks and t-shirts and cloaks and wands. There are funko pops and other collectibles and even stylish jewelry. There are even Harry Potter renditions of our favorite board games!
While we could go on all day, we know you’ve got mistletoe and candy canes on your mind, so we’ve narrowed it down to 5 gifts that will wow the special someone in your life – or you know…yourself.
These were sort of impossible to get last year, but we lived in a small town so we lucked out when it came to purchasing a few. We also managed to snag some this year and trust us, they’re worth it.
Yes, that means we’ve already opened our sock calendar this year, but you can’t blame us. They’re Harry Potter socks! Who wouldn’t want to immediately open those?
You can purchase the 12 days of socks from Target, in-store or online (if they’re in stock). We recommend grabbing these as soon as possible so you’re not on the hunt as it gets closer to Christmas. These went for way over their price point last year on eBay!
We all love a cute pair of socks, it’s like when you tell someone they have a nice dress and their immediate response is ‘thanks, it has pockets’.
That’s how we feel about cute socks, and we’re sure we aren’t alone there.
This is a must-have for any Harry Potter fan. We’ve got one sitting atop a bookshelf in our home and it’s just a staple. We all dreamed about getting that letter to Hogwarts and finding out our house. While that didn’t exactly work out, we did take a Pottermore quiz to find out where we’d end up and we like to think the Sorting Hat made that experience all the more magical.
You can find these online and in local retailers like Barnes and Noble and Target! This in itself makes it a present for a friend and for yourself, because you can grab Starbucks at either of those locations as well.
It’s a win, win.
This one is a really really awesome gift idea. You build a coding wand, learn to code with “step by step challenges” and you get to see the magic that you’ve created come to life right before your eyes.
This is another one of those gifts that you’ll probably want to get for yourself, too.
Learning to code is a gift for everyone, and with the magic of Harry Potter thrown in, this is the perfect present for Potter fans both new and old.
Did you grow up with the series? You’ll love getting to feel like you did when you first discovered it once again. New to the books and movies? You’ll get to experience the magic in a new and exciting way.
We’ve not purchased this one ourselves, yet, but if you do – we’d love to hear how awesome it is!
We’re writers, so this was a must-include on our list. For Christmas, there’s nothing like getting a new journal. There are pages and pages in front of you, bare and waiting to be scribbled upon with ideas and magic.
Writing is an art form, it’s a way to connect to those we love, to strangers around the world, to ourselves. There’s an unlimited platform when it comes to writing.
You can share it with the world or keep it for yourself. No matter who your audience is, a new journal is a little piece of magic all on its own.
This really incorporates Harry Potter into Christmas for all of us. Advent calendars are a staple to the holiday and when we first saw this one, we knew it would be a hit with fans across the world.
Every day until Christmas, you can find a new mini funko pop. Of course, this would mean the gift would have to come early, but we don’t think your recipient would mind.
Plus, advent calendars are the gifts that keep giving. Every single morning, there’s a new little treasure just waiting to be opened.
We wouldn’t blame you if you got one for yourself, too.
As we said before, we know a quick search of Harry Potter gifts will certainly bring up pages and pages of content, but we think these gifts are the perfect place to start.
Are you planning on buying Harry Potter themed Christmas gifts this year? Have you received Harry Potter gifts in the past? Let us know which are on your must-buy list and which are your favorites from Christmases past.
