The Best Harry Potter Gift Ideas
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we’re legitimately in love with the Wizarding World and all things Harry Potter. That’s why, when we find a friend that loves HP as much as we do, it’s like the best opportunity ever to gift them something they’d probably never indulge in otherwise.
I also love Etsy and am a seller there, so I try to support the handmade markets as much as I can. And well, let’s face it – I love to shop on Amazon because it’s so easy with Amazon Prime. It’s so awesome that you can find such great Harry Potter gift ideas online–both to buy and make!
Here are a few of my favorites I’m eyeing for a couple of friends–who probably know who they are! LOL!
New: Harry Potter Bath Bombs
I have had so many of you ask about Harry Potter bath bombs and here they are! Finally finished and ready for gifting (note: these are a do-it-yourself gift).
- Slytherin Bath Bombs – Aren’t they sssssssmart? I couldn’t help myself.
- Gryffindor Bath Bombs – Courageous? Yes. Easy? You bet. Fun? Oh goodness, yes!
- Hufflepuff Bath Bombs – Just like their house magicians, these bath bombs work hard for you.
- Ravenclaw Bath Bombs – It sure is smart to keep one of these housemates (and this bath bomb) on hand.
For the girlfriend on my list that loves her makeup, I’m thinking of grabbing this Mischievously Cute Makeup Bag. It’s small, but super cute and the perfect size for her brushes and eyeshadows.
And, if I was going to share who it was I was planning to gift, I might ask him if he’d like this Personalized Docking Station. But because I know he needs it, he’s getting it, no questions asked!
If thisMarauders’ Map Throw Blanket was any more soft and fluffy, I think we’d have a problem on our hands–because I wouldn’t be able to give this Harry Potter gift idea, I’d have to keep it.
Anyone, literally anyone who loves Harry Potter, would love to have this Potions Box! It would make an awesome box for spices, bath salts, makeup–anything.
Speaking of bath salts and fun times in the bathroom, I’m seriously considering this Harry Potter gift idea for my gal-pal that digs a nightly soak. It’s Every Witch or Wizards’ Dream Self-Care Kit–she’d love it. Heck, I’d love it.
Morphing Mugs are simply the most stealth Wizarding World gift idea ever. Your friend won’t even realize what awesomeness they have until coffee reveals it. LOL!
For those jewelry-wearing friends who genuinely love the Harry Potter books, not just the movies, this Every Book in the Series Charm Bracelet is the perfect choice–it’s handmade and would make a touching Harry Potter gift.
I don’t care who you are, or even if you’ve never heard of Harry Potter, but this Wizarding World Candy Set is cool. And all Potterheads would love it. Hands-down.
This is the12-Days of Socks Set that I’m STILL disappointed no one got me for Christmas. Is anyone even listening to me?! Janet’s* getting her a set. Maybe she’ll remember this for my birthday???
What If You Want to Make a DIY Harry Potter Gift?
Super legitimate question. If you’re a DIY’er like me, you’d totally want to make a DIY Harry Potter gift for your giftee. Makes total sense.
This is our very own wildly cool Sorting Hat Bookmark. I still use mine and I’m seriously thinking about making one for Janet to go with her socks. It was just so easy and fun!
These DIY Pencil Wands can be as bold and crazy as you want–or as simple, too. They make the perfect teacher’s appreciation gift for a Harry Potter-loving teacher.
If your gifting event is anywhere near the holidays or, even if it’s not, you can make a DIY Golden Snitch Ornament for your friend to hang on their rearview mirror or at their desk. It doesn’t have to go on a tree!
Oh, this Rememberall Ring makes the perfect Harry Potter gift for someone when you don’t have hours to make something else. I think Janet might be getting one of these too…
Your shares are how this site grows and I am sincerely grateful. If you found this collection helpful, please save it to your favorite Harry Potter Gifts board on Pinterest or with your friends on Facebook.
*Note: Janet is not a real person. This is a name I made up, so no, Janet, you’re not getting these things. Next week, for your birthday.
