While the Harry Potter books and film franchise may have come to an end, Pottermania is far from over. In fact, the Harry Potter fandom continues to be one of, if not the, most prominent online and around the world. Being proud Potterheads ourselves here at 3 Chic Geeks, a gift guide inspired by the wizarding world was an absolute must. Need help buying for the witch, wizard, muggle or squib in your life (or looking for some new gear yourself)? Then we’ve got the list for you!

1. Magic Wand
You can’t be a wizard without a magic wand! There are hundreds of wands out there for the aspiring wizard and even the most seasoned spellcaster could always use another wand for his or her collection. From replicas of the wands made in the films, to Alivan’s high-quality range, to a whole variety of handmade wands available on Etsy, there’s something for everyone.
2. Personalized Hogwarts Letter
Admit it… you’re secretly still waiting for your acceptance letter. Luckily you no longer have to wait for that Hogwarts owl that’s already ten years late. The WBshop sells official letters that look just like the one Harry got and you can personalize with your name or the name of someone you know. You can also find other versions on Etsy, including “Next Gen” ones with McGonagall listed as the Headmistress.
3. Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection
The ultimate blu ray and DVD collection, complete with hours upon hours of bonus content and other little extras. It’s a must-have for every die hard Potter fan. It’s pricey, but reliable sources tell us that it’s well worth it. Find it here.
4. HP Inspired Necklace
From Luna’s Butterbeer cork to golden snitches to the Deathly Hallows, fans have brought various pieces of Harry Potter to life, and all as fashionable necklaces. For the more rebellious folk, there are a number of dark mark interpretations. Plus there’s always the feels-inducing Snape tribute necklaces. No matter what style you’re looking for, the perfect necklace is out there.
5. Wizard Wear
Show off that Potter pride! Go off the beaten track of house hats and scarves and check out some of the original art t-shirts available on Redbubble. There are options for the athletic Potterhead, the activist, and even the gamer. There are also crossovers galore for that one friend who likes to geek out over multiple fandoms, like this cool Hogwarts/Disney combo.
6. Time Turner
friends we asked super-scientific research, the time turner is the most wished for Harry Potter artefact. Noble Collection makes a beautiful version for a reasonable price. Actual time-travel results may vary.

7. Marauder’s Map
We solemnly swear that we’re up to no good. For the mischief maker in your life, a replica of the very same map that guided Harry through all of his adventures at Hogwarts. If you’ve got a prankster Potterhead in your life, this is the perfect gift for them.
8. iPhone Case
Whether you use it show off your house pride or look for other Deathly Hallows believers, a Harry Potter phone case is one of the many ways to advertise your Potter loyalty. There are cases for every house and style available through WBshop.com or more affordable ones on Etsy.
9. Educational Decree Poster
These posters are another great Etsy find. You can get a copy of one of Umbridge’s infamous rules, or you can pick up one of the great parodies featuring lines from Starkid’s A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel.
10. Adaigo Teas
Because we just can’t get enough of the Adaigo fandom blends. There are three different Potter collections available on Adaigo, but the Potter Potions is our absolute favorite. Stock up on some Amortentia and Felix Felicis for the new year or share it with your friends. This collection also features tasty wizarding favorites like Butterbeer, Pumpkin Juice, and Treacle Tart teas. You’ll want to get on this quick, though. These teas tend to sell out not long after coming back in stock.
