GIFTS FOR BIG-TIME HARRY POTTER FANS
Harry Potter fans haven’t been able to get enough of the young wizard, his friends and even his enemies since the first magical book from J.K. Rowland began enchanting kids and adults alike almost 20 years ago.
You won’t need a sorcerer’s stone to raise the money to give Harry Potter-themed gifts that will put a pleasant spell on your gift recipients and keep them thinking of you beyond the holiday season.
HARRY’S ROUND EYEGLASS FRAMES
What better way to show your Pottermania than to adopt Harry’s signature eyewear look? For wear with a costume or for everyday use, these metal frames can be fitted with prescription lenses or used as a prop with plastic lenses supplied. They are advertised for smaller faces, but fit adults and kids alike. These spellbinding specs are affordable at less than $20 per pair.
HARRY POTTER COLORING BOOK
Help your young HP fan take his or her love of the stories and characters to the next level with a coloring book they can use to personalize their experience. For around $10, you can choose from a variety of books kids will color and keep for years.
Let your favorite grownup Potter fan stay cozy on the couch this winter in a comfy snuggy that looks like a Hogwarts uniform. “It definitely looks like a Gryffindor uniform if you really want to walk around your house pretending to be Harry Potter,” wrote to one reviewer who bought the throw for his wife. Your gift can double as a Halloween costume later in the year.
Hang them on a wall or drape them over a bedspread — these large tapestry throws look positively medieval, complete with the Gryffindor crest and frayed edges. The pieces are machine washable and despite the large size, sell for less than $25. You can opt for a Raven’s Claw crest, Hogwarts School, Marauder’s Map or other tapestry instead, or give more than one if you’ve got multiple Harry Potter fans who need gifts this holiday season.
WALL MAP AND MOVIE POSTER
Let your favorite Pottermaniac get the “big picture” with a large, detailed wall map that outlines where the action takes place in the book series. “Such a cool illustration of our favorite school of witchcraft and wizardry,” raved one reviewer who bought the poster. Pair it with a movie poster that includes all of the main characters and you’ll give a gift someone will check out over and over.
From necklaces to bracelets to rings, you can find a variety of jewelry, including well-reviewed (by customers who bought them) items for less than $5. The Golden Snitch Quicksilver Golden Pearl Necklace, for example, features an orb nestled between detailed wings suspended on a delicate chain, and sells for less than $3 at some sites. This necklace (selling for less than $3) received 4 out of 5 stars from people who reviewed it. You can also get a matching snitch bracelet.
