Harry Potter fans are like no others out there. There's an amazing connection that both kids and adults have to the books and all of the movies. So when it comes to picking out the best Harry Potter gift for the Potterhead in your life, you best believe it better be good. No ordinary present will do. It has to be magical. Okay, so where to start? Well, it helps to first see if you can do some sleuthing to find out which Hogwarts House they belong to:Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin. Fans take this very seriously.
It's so easy to get a custom-made wizard illustration that resembles you and your favorite Harry Potter fan. Just provide a photo, specify a few details (like eye color, name, house, etc.) and your design will be either emailed to you for a digital option, or mailed to you for the physical print option. You can get anywhere from one to six people, so family portraits are even an option.
You don't need magic to make all the fantastic treats featured in the books and movies. This expanded version of the best-selling cookbook includes over 150 recipes, including one for Butterbeer. Reviewers raved about how thorough it is, noting that each recipe mentions what book and chapter the recipes are from.
While they can't play with this particular Quidditch set, it's a beautiful homage to the sport and can be put on view in any room. "My husband bought me these to display on my desk at work. The quality is outstanding," one Amazon reviewer wrote.
This necklace is a perfect gift for anyone juggling a bunch of responsibilities. In the Prisoner of Azkaban, Hermione uses a time turner (gifted to her by Professor McGonagall) to double-book her schedule and take extra classes. This replica comes in a display box, so when it's not around their neck, they can proudly show it off and keep it safe.
We're a little emotional thinking about this line from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It's a beautiful way to celebrate a couple who is getting married because you can also add a date to the flutes.
Every Potterhead needs to have Butterbeer at least once in their life. Now they can make their own with this cocktail mix. Once they have the packet, they just need to add some milk, cream soda and liquor if they want, to create the iconic drink.
This Hogwarts-themed robe is the perfect addition to their closet. It also comes in different colors for Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin if they'd rather represent their house instead. Plus, the hood resembles a witch's hat!
You'll get books 1-7 in this beautiful collection that's ideal for kids who have seen the movies but have yet taken the adventure into the books. There's also a hard copy version, but it's a bit pricey.
Okay, they might not have as much drama as Sirius Black, but they will still love this shirt that's inspired by his Wanted poster. Pick from over 10 colors, and just be sure to send the Etsy seller a hi-res photo of the person you're gifting.
For Kids But Also Adults

This coloring book is the perfect way for her to keep her hands busy during the next Harry Potter movie marathon. Just note that the designs are pretty detailed, so it's best for older kids (ages 8+) and adults. It also comes with 16 pages of full-color artwork from the movies for inspiration!
Good news: You don't have to go all the way to Honeydukes to get a taste of Bertie Bott's jelly beans. These candies aren't for the faint of heart since 40% of the jar is filled with crazy flavors (think soap and earwax), while the rest are fruity flavors.
Any fan would jump at a chance to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida. The theme park brings the world of Harry Potter to life with Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade, and even the Hogwarts castle.

This invisibility cloak is designed just like the one used in the movies. All you need to do is place a phone on the included tripod and follow the instructions on the free app to start disappearing on camera. When you turn the cloak inside out (so the green part is on the outside), even muggles will be invisible on camera.
At first glance, Muggles will simply think this painting is a replica of Van Gogh's "Starry Night." But if you take another look, it's actually a gorgeous interpretation of the Hogwarts castle in his signature style. Although it doesn't come with the frame, the sizes are listed, so you can purchase one separately on Amazon.
Kids will feel like real witches and wizards walking around with these notebooks — they're on the Hogwarts' school supplies list, after all! Not everyone knows all their spells by heart, so thankfully they can keep track of 'em all here.
