30 Amazing Christmas Gifts for Harry Potter Fans
Behold: Harry Potter and the chamber of great gifts.
Though the first Harry Potter book was released more than 21 years ago, the franchise still remains as prominent and popular as ever today, with a new legion of fans discovering the series every minute. In fact, it was just this year that creator J.K. Rowling made Harry Potter history again when Harry Potter and the Cursed Child earned the highest box-office revenue of any Broadway show in a single week—proving the boy wizard’s powers haven’t waned a bit so many years later.
For adolescents and adults alike, the adventures of the boy who lived will simply never die (and quite frankly, they never should). For those people, we’ve rounded up some of the best Potterhead paraphernalia the internet has to offer just in time for you to finish up your holiday shopping.
Best Life’s editors have scoured the internet to bring you the best products out there, and we’re hoping you’ll love them as much as we do. Full disclosure: we may earn a commission for anything you purchase through links on this page, but that doesn’t mean you’ll pay more for them (we’d never do that to you!). Pricing and availability are accurate as of the piece’s initial publication date, but it’s the internet and we can’t guarantee that these sweet, sweet deals will last forever, so scoop them up before someone else does!
A Marauder’s Map Apple Watch Band
$11; buy now at Hot Topic
This watch band, decked out with the same type of footprints often seen scampering around on the Marauder’s Map, is perfect for the Fred or George Weasley of your friend group—in other words, the person who’s always up to no good. It’s built for an Apple Watch, though, so just make sure your mischievous friend owns the proper hardware before purchasing this gift for them.
A Wand-Shaped Tie Clip
$55; buy now at Cufflinks

These Harry Potter Bertie Bott Beans are not your everyday candy. Sure, some of the yellow beans in the jar taste like your typical lemon jellybeans—but you have to be careful, because some of them are also flavored like rotten eggs.
