Eliza’s Christmas list has a very strong Harry Potter / Fantastic Beasts theme this year.
We have redecorated her room with Harry Potter quote wall stickers, she has Harry Potter bedding and she is currently devouring the books for the 4th time!
If you are on the hunt for gifts for a Harry Potter lover and are in need of some last minute advice, here is my guide to some of the best Harry Potter themed gifts to suit all budgets:
For Film Lovers
Wizarding World 10 Film Collection (RRP: £49.99), which transports you to the Spellbinding World of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts with all of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films on DVD.
For Game Lovers
Harry Potter Dobble (RRP: £13.99) is where the wizarding world of Harry potter meets the smash-hit game of speedy observation. It is super easy to play, simply be the first of spot the single matching image between two cards to win. It gets rather raucous and for some reason in our house, the kids are much better at it than the adults.
Harry Potter Quest for Beasts Board Game (RRP: £15.99) is the new game that Eliza cannot wait to play over the Christmas break. The aim of the game is to capture the magical beasts that have broken loose at Hogwarts.
The unique swinging game board allows play inside and outside of Hogwarts as you collect all the clues and figure out which magical beast you have captured!
For Role Play Lovers
Kids love to dress up as their favourite characters and play out scenes from the film. In fact, Eliza does a wicked Hermione impression!
Rubie’s Official Harry Potter range, offers both kids and adults Hogwarts Robes, costumes and accessories which are sure to complete every Wizards look off perfectly.
Of course, every wizards journey starts with being sorted into your house first and the Yume Toys Sorting Hat (RRP: £49.99) is perfect for kids to use with their friends, or even to bring out at dinner parties.
You also need to head to Olivanders to choose your wand. For the experience of not knowing which wand will choose you, you can get the Mystery Wand, which contains one of 9 mystery wands from characters including Harry Potter / Hermione Granger / Ron Weasley / Draco Malfoy / Neville Longbottom / Death Eater / Lord Voldemort / Nympadora Tonks and Luna Lovegood.

Each crest contains two clues to the character inside. Open compartment number 1 to reveal a heat reveal Hogwart’s Crest. Which House could your character be in? Open compartment number 2 to reveal a spell name. I can’t see it…its written in secret ink and will only be revealed when you dip the paper in water!
