Accio Christmas gift ideas! I present My Poppet’s Ultimate Harry Potter Gift Guide. If you’ve got a muggle in your life that is Wizarding World obsessed, I’ve got some great gift ideas that will delight them.
There is something here for everyone – every Potter loving kid, teen or adult will love every one of these gifts.
As you may already know, I’m the parent of a Harry Potter obsessed kiddo. This year Emma’s Christmas wish list to Santa is heavy with Harry Potter toys, books and collectible requests.
I’m always spotting cool Harry Potter gift ideas, so I’ve done the hard work and collected some of the coolest, quirkiest and novel finds from all over the internet.
In the past few months since Emma’s Harry Potter Birthday Party there has been a new wave of Wizarding World products released which has been really exciting to see.
With the advent of the new Fantastic Beasts movie, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play hitting the stage in Melbourne soon, the air is electric with buzz around all things Harry Potter.
This Harry Potter gift guide has something in every price range starting from stocking stuffers and small gifts all under $15, to the ultimate life-size chess set to transform your backyard into a giant Wizarding Chess board.
It’s not all licensed and branded products, I’ve also included quite a few Harry Potter themed products from indie makers and designers and a few charity gift ideas too.

Harry Potter Gift Guide – Books to Read & Colour
Fill up your shelves with some of the gorgeous new illustrated editions of the Harry Potter books. The artwork in these books is just stunning. The first 3 books are currently available in large format full-colour illustrated form, as is a new copy of Fantastic Beasts as Where to find them. The original inspiration for the current series of movies.
For kids that enjoy colouring, the new Harry Potter coloring book will keep them entertained. Emma has this one and she loves tracing and colouring her favourite characters and scenes.
Older fans will appreciate a copy of the limited edition 20th anniversary series in their house colour. You can choose from Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw.
Harry Potter Gift Guide – Toys & Games – Let’s Play!
There is a plethora of Harry Potter themed toys, gadgets, puzzles and games to choose from. Emma has been salivating over the new LEGO releases which are flying off the shelves as fast as a Golden Snitch!
She has put a request in to her nanna for the Newt’s Creatures suitcase LEGO set which folds out into a magical creatures zoo, then packs away into a suitcase just like in the movie. Very clever.
My top picks are the Kano Coding Wand which teaches kids to write computer code to create their own spells with the flick of a wand – Educational and fun! I also love the new Mattel Harry Potter Character Dolls which are beautifully made and look amazing in real life. I’m a bit partial to the Prof. McGonagall one, her robes are spot on!
Harry Potter Gift Guide – Brighten up the Common Room
Tweens and Teens will appreciate this understated Harry Potter bedroom decor. We all need this reminder once in a while – Don’t let the muggles get you down! Words to live by.
Harry Potter Gift Guide – Charity Gifts
It’s not all about receiving gifts, the spirit of Christmas is about giving. Consider giving friends and family a charity gift this year – Harry Potter fans may appreciate adopting an endangered owl at Zoos Victoria, the gift of ‘LUMOS’ providing solar lamps in refugee camps, or sending a girl to school (not Hogwarts unfortunately).
Harry Potter Gift Guide – The coolest threads this side of Diagon Alley
I don’t really go for clothing with heavy branding so I’ve rounded up my favourite clothing and accessory picks that give a subtle nod to the Potter fandom.
Know someone who would love their own personalised Weasley sweater on Christmas morning? This Etsy seller takes custom orders. You could also commission one from a family member or neighbour who knits made with this knitting pattern.
This colourful Honeydukes tote bag would make a great library book bag, and the Hedwig owl wing scarf is so cool.
Big W has lots of cool Harry Potter stuff this year – head in-store for those.
Harry Potter Gift Guide – Stocking Stuffers under $15
Lastly I’ve rounded up some really fun small gifts and stocking stuffers, all under $15. Who wouldn’t love a bit of Felix Felicis – Liquid Luck potion in their stocking?
There are tons of very quirky, inexpensive and practical gifts to choose from. I particularly like the sorting hat bath bomb that changes your bath to which ever house you are chosen for, the Hogwarts Express Ticket travel card holder and Jelly Belly chocolate wands (because chocolate!)
Whichever gift you choose I’m sure your recipient will love it! Don’t leave your shopping to the last minute though, as owl post gets awfully busy at this time of year.
