Harry Potter Lego
Exploring Diagon Alley, riding the Hogwarts Express from platform nine and three quarters, and roaming the Hogwarts castle are probably dreams of many Harry Potter fans, but what if you could experience them in your own home?
Harry Potter Lego is not only great fun to build, but you can also let your imagination run wild as you re-enact your favourite movie scenes, such as taking on Voldemort, attending potions class with Snape, playing Quidditch– or even sacrificing yourself in a game of chess (‘Not me. Not Hermoine. You!’). There are so many incredibly awesome sets, which is why we’ve dropped a link to a whole bunch of them below.

Harry Potter quiz
Go on. Admit it. Most of us at some point in our lives have taken a Harry Potter quiz to find out which Hogwarts house we’ll end up in. There’s even an Amazon Alexa skill to find out where the Sorting Hat will place you. But if you or your recipient is a true Potter know-it-all, there are a ton of Harry Potter quiz books out there to test your knowledge. Whether you’re a Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherin or Gryffindor, you’ll be sure to earn a few house points from knowing your Harry Potter trivia.
We particularly love this Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit game, which also comes in a bitesize edition for just £9.99.
Harry Potter books
Whether you’ve only seen the movies, you’re reading the books for the first time, or perhaps you want to treat yourself or a recipient to a fancy edition (mm… new book smell), there are some truly spellbinding offerings worth adding to your bookshelf. There’s beautiful illustrated versions such as the MinaLima and Jim Kay editions, as well as the new Hogwarts House editions that are themed to each house’s colour. If you’re struggling to decide then maybe the standard complete collection is best.
There are also fantastic reads which take you beyond the original books, including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and the Hogwarts Library collection. This new and official Harry Potter Baking Book might also take your fancy.
Harry Potter wand
If you’ve ever wanted to own your favourite character’s wand, The Noble Collection has got you covered. The officially licensed movie prop replicas make a perfect gift to any Potterhead who wants a piece of the wizarding world. Each collectable wand is made from high-quality materials and hand-painted, making them pretty unique to its owner.
Whether you seek the Elder wand, Hermoine Granger’s or even Lord Voldemort’s, each wand comes beautifully presented in either open window packaging or inside an Ollivander box. Prices tend to start from around £19.99 and vary from wand to wand.
Harry Potter Funko
If you’re looking for an affordable gift, this Funko Pop range has a ton of cool figures to choose from. There’s just about every Harry Potter character available, including Potter himself, Ron Weasley, Hagrid, Draco Malfoy, Professor Snape and so many more. They even feature your favourite characters in all different types of outfits from events like the Yule Ball, a Quidditch match, Herbology class and the list goes on! Funko Pop even has its own Harry Potter advent calendar. Just take heed…these collectibles are like Pringles. Once you ‘pop’ you just can’t stop!
If you’re old enough to remember the Harry Potter Playstation games (who could forget the horrifying PS1 Hagrid), you’ll appreciate the longing for a decent video game based on the wizarding world. Well, Hogwarts Legacy is promising to be everything you wanted those games to be and more. It’s set in 1800s Hogwarts and you can explore other familiar locations and new ones too. The open-world action RPG lets you craft potions, learn spells, upgrade talents and become a fully-fledged wizard. The game’s release date is still to be confirmed but it’s expected to come out in 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Harry Potter Dobble
Dobble is Amazon’s bestselling card game and this edition meets with the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter. The game features cute illustrations of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley as well as other spellbinding creatures, wands, Hogwarts house crests and more. The aim of the game is to be the first to spot the single matching magical image between two cards. The cards come stored inside a neat HP themed-tin- it’s compact enough to take on your travels too.
It’s currently only £10 at Amazon, making it a great stocking filler, birthday gift or school holiday boredom breaker.
