Juniper Books

Juniper Books house editions

Juniper Books, $275
There comes a time in life when you look at your bookshelves and think, "Should I, like, arrange these in rainbow order?" These Juniper books editions aren't new-new, but they're gorgeous and will make you the fanciest wizard on the block. The set and its display box deserve a place of pride on your shelf, a low-key tribute to the bravest wizard I've ever known (Remus Lupin, obviously).

hogwarts wax seal kit
TaBo

Hogwarts wax seal set

TaBo, $13.99
OK, so your giftee is a day (decade) or two over 11 years old, and they're still waiting on that Hogwarts letter. It's all chill though, because now they can send fancy letters sealed shut with a luxurious tribute from the greatest institution of magical education in Europe. Which is... extremely similar to completing a course of sorcery, right? At the very least, their snail mail will get an upgrade.

Happy Supply Co.

Weasley sweater pin

Happy Supply Co., $6
Happy Christmas, Harry, here's a Weasley sweater (enamel pin) of your very own. It's a low-key lapel shoutout to the coziest family in the wizarding world, and unlike a hand-knit wool sweater with your first initial on it, you can wear this stylish garment every day, all year round.

Dark Mark Pin Harry Potter
Super Cute Awesome Stuff

Dark Mark pin

Super Cute Awesome Stuf, $10.62
This pin is equal parts cute and disturbing. Like, yes, the Death Eaters are the bad guys, but who can resist the lure of an itty-bitty glitter snake coming out of a wee little skull? Voldemort, take note: This kind of branding is how you pick up new recruits. Gift-givers, take note: Potter fans will love it.

Granger Lovegood 2020 Shirrt
DFTBA

Granger/Lovegood 2020 shirt

DFTBA, $22

And Hermione, well, we all know her deal. Those who are still scarred from 2016 but ready to look to the future will be thrilled to find campaign swag for their dream ticket under the non-denominational shrubbery of their choice.

Harry Potter T-Shirt
DFTBA

Hex the Patriarchy shirt

DFTBA, $22
Here's a message we can all get behind, after a trash fire of a few years. For the wizard or witch who's part of the resistance, give them the ability to wear their feelings of rage and over-it-ness on their sleeve chest, all the while declaring their magical ability.

MinaLima

MinaLima exercise book prints

MinaLima, $127-$255
This gorgeous, low-key print of the trio's exercise books (or, like, literally any print on offer) from design team MinaLima, who created the iconic signature look of all the signage, books and various paper products in the Potter movies, would be classily at home on any hardcore fan's wall. Choose from premium prints, which feature the duo's signatures, numbered editions and certificates of authenticity, and metallic accents, or the lower-cost but still beautiful and frame-worthy standard editions of the art.

Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit
USAopoly

Trivial Pursuit: World of Harry Potter Edition

USAopoly, $18.28
For the Potter fan who knows it all, an actually challenging set of trivia questions. Even the most die-hard fan will have to stop and think before answering some of the questions, and an actual Trivial Pursuit board isn't necessary to enjoy the cards, even though it wouldn't be totally by the game's rulebook. Just shuffle the cards and challenge the other person to prove their Ravenclaw cred.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle: A Cooperative Deck-Building Game
USAopoly

Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle: A Cooperative Deck-Building Game

USAopoly, $46.98
This game is so good and so fun, no matter what your age. Up to four players can play at a time, as the core trio (Harry, Hermione and Ron) plus Neville. Set aside some serious time or a series of weekends to play: There are seven levels to beat. Using cards representing spells, items and allies (side characters), the players work together to protect key locations against dark magic. The levels get harder as you play, but the characters gain special abilities to stand up to the tougher baddies. You'll work together to strategize, and won't be able to stop playing until you beat all the levels.

Harry Potter Golden Snitch Clock
Pottery Barn

Golden Snitch clock

Pottery Barn, $49
It opens at the close, and also tells you when you're running late. This little Snitch bedside clock is teeny tiny, with just a 1.5 inch wide face, and is a lovely and detailed (and somewhat useful, if you're not too nearsighted) piece that any devotee would love to have in their apartment.

Pottery Barn Harry Potter Lamp
Pottery Barn

Hogwarts pendant light fixture

Maurders Map Umbrella
Warner Bros.

Marauder's Map color-changing umbrella

Warner Bros., $19.90
So cool, it's basically magic. When dry, this umbrella is a beige and white Marauder's Map motif. But just add water: red words will show up spiraled around the circumference, the password to the map, "I solemnly swear I'm up to no good." But the recipient of your gift will be feeling good at least -- good and dry.

Time Turner Watch
Warner Bros.

Time Turner watch

Warner Bros., $24.90
It's about time you invested in this subtle timepiece, with a design on its face like Hermione's wibbly wobbly timey wimey accessory from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Aside from its wizardly appeal, it's a sharp-looking accessory with a classic black strap and burnished alloy casing. It may or may not (definitely won't) let you turn back time, but it'll at least tell you how many minutes it's been since you last wished you could go back.
