If there is one thing I love, it is Harry Potter. I have an entire room in my house dedicated to it, full of Harry Potter merchandise of all kind. This season I have been seeing a ton of Harry Potter gift guides around. They are all full of stock images and generic statements, so I decided to make a Harry Potter Gift Guide for fans. All of these items are items I own and use. The ideas to make at the bottom are all ones I have made! I love these items and I know the people on your gift list will too!
The illustrated versions of the Harry Potter books are hands down my favorite versions. The images by Jim Kay are stunning and I am thrilled each time a new one releases.

- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: The Illustrated Edition
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: The Illustrated Edition

This book is hands down one of the best Harry Potter books out there. It is absolutely stunning in both imagery and papercraft. The best part? I can be completely unfolded to create a 3D map of the school!

These Alex and Ani bracelets are absolutely gorgeous and feature some of the best quotes from the Harry Potter series.

I’m not kidding when I say this is one of my prized possessions. It isn’t for the faint of heart, it took a solid 14 hours to build but it has become quite a conversation piece in our house.

I wish I had a place to put it where you could see the front and the back because it is so stunning! It has more than 6,000 pieces and it the perfect gift for any Lego and Harry Potter fan.

DIY HARRY POTTER GIFTS
There is not a Harry Potter fan alive that wouldn’t love to see a Hogwarts Letter with their name on it delivered by owl. This fun printable can be the realization of that dream! This post will let you put in the name of your witch or wizard and print a customized letter, for free!
The letter is taken straight from the book down to the emerald green writing on the letter. The name is left off of the actual letter so you can fill in it for your little witch or wizard. There are a couple of different ways you can bring this letter. I printed mine on parchment paper, but it is a little more expensive at the store. If you don’t want to have to spring for the more expensive paper, you can print the printable that has a parchment background on tan or ivory paper. That will give you the parchment look without the extra price. You may need to trim the edges if you choose that option.
Harry Potter DIY Wire Whomping Willow
I absolutely love how this tree turned out and it is the perfect statement piece on my bookshelves.
For years my kids have used a color-changing acrylic night light. They have gone through a few different designs over the last year but the love the color-changing aspect of the night light. When Cricut released the new engraving tool, I knew that our own custom lights would be my first project with it! It was even easier than I imagined it being and I have a feeling we may end up with a whole stack of sheets they can switch out in our light base!
One of my favorite things about starting a new year is a fresh, blank calendar. There is something about the infinite potential that a new year has that makes me a little giddy. Add a dash of Harry Potter nerdiness and you have a perfect storm. This year, I have created this fun and functional Harry Potter calendar for you to download and use for free this next year!
Harry Potter always seems to have a love-hate relationship with potions class. Snape despises him and makes his life miserable, but potion brewing can create some powerful and fantastic magic. Potions class is one of my favorite parts of Harry Potter. It is like chemistry with a little extra flair, which is just how my kids view making slime. Combining Harry Potter and slime was a dream come true for them.
Looking for an easy party favor, valentine or gift? These Harry Potter keychains are so easy to make, take minimal supplies and can be customized to each person’s house and personality!
Of all the fascinating aspects of the world of Harry Potter, the one that has always stood out to me is Quidditch.
If you’re going to invent a school for magical kids, of course, you would need some sort of sport for them to play. Sports are an essential part of middle schools and high schools in the real world, so it would be only logical that they would have sports in the magical world. And if the rest of the magical world is going to be so different from the Muggle world, wouldn’t they need a sport that’s truly unique (although magic soccer sounds pretty awesome)?
As a die-hard sports fan, I love reading about the Quidditch games. It’s a sport I’d love to watch and play. It’s unfortunate my sad Muggle-ness prevents me from hopping on a broom and making that dream a reality. So I need another way to play Quidditch. Enter the Quidditch Tabletop Dice Game.
With snow falling steadily around, I am constantly looking for ways to bring a little bit more greenery into my house. For me, it really helps stave off the winter blues and I love having plants around. Who says you have to keep your plants in boring planters? When I received my The Leaf Reader box from LitJoy Crate and saw the Tea Cup Planter inside, I fell completely in love with it. My grandma used to plant in teacups all the time, what makes these DIY planters even better is that since they are made for planting, they are easier to use than any old dish.
A necklace for every single house!

The tree is a good mix of handmade and store bought ornaments. Keep reading to below to find all of the tutorials and buying information.
The Snitch on my tree makes me so happy. I love how easy the printable wings make this ornament. Find the tutorial for a Snitch ornament and download the wings here.
The little wands on the tree are my favorite. We made big ones out of chopsticks for the kids at my daughter’s birthday party and made these little ones for the tree. Find the tutorial for making wand ornaments here.
If I am being completely honest, Neville is one of my favorite characters. I just had to have a Remembrall on my tree just for him. You can find the tutorial on how to make the Remembrall here.
No Harry Potter tree would be complete without the flying keys from the first book. These one are really easy to make, you can find the flying key ornament tutorial here.

One of my favorite store bought things on my tree are these darling Harry Potter stuffed animals. They are not meant to be ornaments, just toys, but I left the plastic hooks on them that hung them up in the store and put them on my tree. You can find them here.
The smaller Harry Potter figures are actually key chains. There are two different series of Harry Potter key chains. The first series features items such as the Hogwarts Express, a Snitch and a ticket for Platform 9 3/4. You can find that series here.
The second series features characters such as Hermione and Hagrid. I adore this series and love the way they look on my tree. You can find Series 2 here.
