Have You Seen This?

If you’ve got a Potterhead in your life, shopping for them isn’t too hard. You know that anything involving the boy with the lightning-shaped scar on his forehead will leave them perfectly content.

If you’re in need of a few ideas for their next birthday, here’s a good start:


A sorting hat candle

Their home will fill with a delicious mix of lemon and sandalwood as this candle burns down. But the best part? The candle starts off white, but as it burns, it slowly reveals which Hogwarts house you’re in as it displays one of the four colors. Just pray it’s not Slytherin. Grab yours now.


A golden snitch headband

Add instant oomph to any outfit when you adorn your head with the golden snitch.

3D Hogwarts puzzle

Temperatures are dropping, which means you’ll want to spend more time inside. What better way to pass the hours than with a 3D Hogwarts puzzle? This is the perfect gift for the homebody Potterhead.

Hogwarts trunk purse

Golden snitch alarm clock

Make waking up in the morning slightly more fun with this golden snitch-themed clock. If you’ve got a friend who loves their snooze button, grab them this.


A sorting hat

Sort all of your friends at your next party with your very own Sorting Hat.


These Harry Potter items are perfect for your Potterhead friends, or for yourself! Grab a few of them and let the rest of the world know that you haven’t given up hope that your Hogwarts letter just got a little delayed on its way to you.
