Magical Autumn is finally here, and she doesn’t let us down with her colorful cloaks. Fascinating us with her spellbinding beauty, the mystical season has us fully enthralled, conjuring like mad as the wisps between realms merge with blazing ritual fires.
This is the time of witches, wizards, fairy-tale creatures, and magic – we Muggles know all too well. If you have a certain Potterhead in your life, the one who eats, breathes, and sleeps Harry Potter, they wouldn’t want to celebrate it the ordinary way. This Halloween, why don’t you surprise your wannabe-Hogwarts grad with a magical souvenir from the Wizarding World? Check out these Harry Potter-inspired gift ideas and find the one that will make your friend speechless!
Step through Platform 9¾ and all aboard the Hogwarts Express with Lionel’s ready-to-play train set! The 37-piece, battery-powered set will make children excited, but it also looks fantastic as a decoration for the living room! It comes with a buildable track and 4 train parts (a locomotive, a tender, and 2 passenger coach cars).

Lionel never fails to surprise customers with details, and you will be blown away by how delicate this set is. While adults admire the design, kids will have fun controlling the speed of the train – both forward and backward – with a wireless remote. On the remote, there are buttons that activate bell noises, whistle noises, and most excitingly, movie quotes. You can hear some iconic phrases that were said on the Hogwarts Express, such as “We’ll take the lot”, “I’m Ron, by the way, Ron Weasley”, and “You’re Harry Potter!”.
Perhaps this gift will not take you to Hogwarts, but it can bring you back to where miracles begin: The first time you watched Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone.

“The girl gave off an aura of distinct dottiness. Perhaps it was the fact that she had stuck her wand behind her left ear for safekeeping, or that she had chosen to wear a necklace of butterbeer caps, or that she was reading a magazine upside down.”
All the originality and quirkiness of Luna Lovegood are embodied in her Funko POP action figure. It features Luna Lovegood with her wand, standing 3.75 inches tall in a window display box.

One of the things I love about Funko POP’s products is that they hold so true to the characters. The accessories are such a wonderful addition – Luna Lovegood wouldn’t be herself without the signature radish earrings! The cork necklace and spider ring are also included in the package. Additionally, she comes with a small plastic stand.
If you are a fan of Luna Lovegood, this cutie is a perfect display for your desk. She can give you a shot of whimsy whenever you need it!
Universal Studio T-shirt Hogwarts School Crest Logo – Source: Amazon
What’s the best way to show the world you are a die-hard Potterhead? This Universal Studio t-shirt will suit your style. It features a large distressed front design of the 4 houses, Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff, on a classic Hogwarts Crest. The product is made of 90% soft cotton fabric, making it extremely comfortable for daily wear.
There is only one thing to note: The tee is more of a loose-fit style, so if you are looking for a slim fit or fitted one, you might want to look for other designs (like this V-neck raglan t-shirt!). The product is available on both Amazon and Universal Studio gift shops.
On July 16th, 2020, the Harry Potter Vera Bradley collection was released and quickly blew fans away. This intriguing collection embodies the Wizarding World’s imagination, courage, and spirit of adventure. After a year of launching, the collection doesn’t lose heat thanks to the captivating and smart design.
Among all Harry Potter Vera Bradley items, the small convertible crossbody bag is right up my alley. Being made of recycled cotton, it lives up to the brand’s quality: Thick, lightweight, and built to last. On the other hand, the design is much more subtle compared to Vera Bradley’s signature style, making it compatible with all kinds of outfits.

There are 4 options for you to choose from: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and the newest Forbidden Forest pattern. You can either show off your house’s pride or express your Potterhead spirit in a unique way with the exclusive design. The magic strap on this small bag allows it to be worn as a crossbody or a belt bag. Just kidding, it’s not magic, but it’s a super versatile bag ideal for all your adventures!
Here comes another piece from the Harry Potter Vera Bradley collection! This soft and cozy blanket comes in two patterns: Home To Hogwarts and Forbidden Forest.
The first one is a dark blue background covered with owls, Harry’s glasses, and the Hogwarts house crests, making it whimsical and fun. Meanwhile, the new pattern is dark purple and features the Whomping Willow, which is located on the grounds of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It will add a classic and mysterious sense to your room. This is just the kind of pattern we’d want in the fall and winter seasons!

The cold in Hogwarts castle won’t bother you if you wrap yourself in this colorful blanket. It looks beautiful draped across the bed and can keep you warm during movie marathons. Just like all the items in the collection, it is available exclusively on the Vera Bradley website.

Have you ever wished you could travel back in time? This time-turner necklace will help you with that! It was handed to Hermione in the third book to ensure that she could attend all her classes. Maybe you can use this magical piece to get more things done or experience some of Hogwarts’ enchantment. Even if it doesn’t work, you may just wear it as a nice accessory.
This necklace is a wonderful gift idea for Hermione Granger lovers and even comes with a fancy box to place it.

The majority of the books’ plot took place during winter. Hence, one of the characters’ most recognizable dress pieces is the scarf. This knit scarf comes in 4 different versions: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. Now it’s time to show which house you belong to!
This is a fantastic Harry Potter-inspired gift as it’s ideal for the cold season and can be used straight away. You can rep your Harry Potter fandom in your day-to-day life while looking stylish.
Hogwarts School Crest Cauldron Ceramic Mug – Source: Amazon
Now that it’s officially autumn, you can start cuddling up with a hot drink, a comfy blanket, and a good book. And if you are a Potterhead, this ceramic mug will be your best companion. It looks like a cauldron straight from Snape’s Potions classroom and has the Hogwarts crest on the front.
You may use it to enjoy your homemade pumpkin latte, or store your pens (and wands) in it and add a little sorcery to your desk. This adorable design will be a fond reminder of your favorite novel.
The Elder Wand in Ollivander’s Box – Source: Amazon
Grab your own wand and rise to the top of the Wizarding World! The elder wand is one of the central story items, and now you get to bring it home. If you admire Professor Dumbledore (who doesn’t?), you will have so much fun with this gift idea. You can even try to cast a spell, I cannot promise the result though.
Warner Bros features several recognizable wands on Amazon, but this one is my most favorite. It comes in a proper box like you just take it from Ollivanders’ shop. The wand is made of a cold-cast resin and sculpted to resemble carved wood. It measures 15.5″ and feels substantial in hand. As soon as you take hold of it, you will want to give in a wave and let all your magic and imagination run wild!
Right now, you can also get a free wand if you purchase a Universal Studio gift card for $250. If you are a frequent visitor to the theme park or often come with your family, purchasing this is a wise move. Considering how quickly $250 can go when you are at Universal Studio, you should take advantage of this deal and receive the wand as a bonus!
So you have it, the list of magical Harry Potter-inspired items, brought to you straight from Diagon Alley! With this, you can cast a sweet spell on the Potterhead in your life. You might also treat yourself to one of these gifts because everyone deserves a little magic in their lives. Show the world that you are truly better than all of the Muggles out there!
