Yes, I know. The Internet is filled with lists of Harry Potter holiday gifts. But, not all gift lists are created equal. I wanted to make a list of Harry Potter presents for the adult Potterhead. Every gift on this list is perfect for the grown-up (like me) who still loves Harry Potter but who wouldn't be caught dead with wands, quidditch kits, or cosplay costumes. So, if you or someone you know is obsessed with all things Harry Potter, then this list is for you! Use it for inspiration for the upcoming holiday season or any time of the year. You'll find tons of cute Harry Potter gifts that any Potterhead is sure to love!

Why Make Another List of Harry Potter Holiday Gifts?
What a good question. As the Harry Potter franchise ages, so do the fans. I, for one, still turn to the HP films and books from time to time as a means of temporary escape from the stress of adulting. Having surrounded myself with fellow Potterheads, I know the power of Harry & the gang when it comes to connecting to youth and imagination. But I've noticed that many of the other lists of Harry Potter holiday gifts focus on cheesy products designed to sell rather than thoughtful presents.
So, I decided to make a list of Potter-themed gifts that I'd love to get, even at 37! True Potter fans will never outgrow the magic of Hogwarts, so why not please your Harry Potter fan with a magical gift? This list is full of thoughtful Harry Potter presents for adults to wear, watch, use or decorate their home! Treat your Potterhead special this holiday season with any of these fun gifts!
“After all this time?” “Always...”
While your Potter fan may not want to wear his or her Potterhead status on a shirt or chain, they may love having thoughtful pieces of Harry Potter home decor around the house! Subtle pieces like this Always Throw Pillow by SlushiePrints are great for introducing a little whimsy into their every day, making it a perfect gift for a Harry Potter fan.
"My Boy, You've Got the Grim!"
Professor Sybill Trelawney is fan fav for many reasons! Portrayed by the amazingly talented Emma Thompson, this quirky character plays a pivotal role in the tale of Harry Potter. Her first appearance in the books/films marks a turning point in the series. Things at Hogwarts have taken an even darker turn, beginning with the Grim in Harry's teacup. Not only is this Grim Tea Cup Set by Dragon Hatchery Arts the perfect gift for divination fans, but it's also an excellent gift for fans of Professor Trelawney or Sirus Black.
"where Hogwarts students can purchase necessary supplies"
Any Potter fan knows the importance of places like Diagon Alley and the Leaky Cauldron. After all, some of the most pivotal scenes in Harry Potter occur outside of Hogwarts. Give your Potterhead any one of these fun Harry Potter Signs by Simply Wood and watch as they turn their yard, patio, or guest room into Diagon Alley, the Leaky Cauldron, or The Three Broomsticks!
"To Miss Hermione Jean Granger, I leave my copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard"
One of the best parts of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is the intricacy of the story. Not only did J. K. Rowling do an excellent job interweaving the story and characters in each of her Harry Potter books, but she also managed to incorporate magical history and important works of literature into the storyline. The Tales of Beedle the Bard is a great example. Everyone who's read the final book of the Harry Potter collection knows the importance of the "Tale of the Three Brothers," one of the magical fairy tales in The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Get your Potterhead a copy of the Hogwarts Classics by J. K. Rowling, which includes Beedle the Bard and Quidditch Through the Ages.
"Welcome to the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard"
While many adult Potter fans may find it silly to carry a wand, chances are they would love to decorate their jacket, backpack, or lapel with either of these cute Harry Potter Pins by Lisa Junius. Featuring the Knight Bus and the Flying Ford Anglia, these enamel pins will add a touch of whimsy to your Potterhead's wardrobe!
"I'll show you mine if you show me yours"
Every Potter fan knows the terror inspired by the Dark Mark, the symbol of Lord Voldemort. But not every wizarding fan fears the Mark! If you've got a Death Eater in your home, chances are they'll love this Dark Magic Candle by Highland Bluff Studio. Your Potterhead can evoke the darkness while filling their home with the warm scent of eucalyptus and mint. If the Dark Arts aren't popular in your home, be sure to check out the other scents and candles in the Highland Bluff Studio Etsy shop!
"Together, they Make one master of death"
Over the years many pieces of Harry Potter jewelry has surfaced on Etsy, but none have been as amazing as the brand new Deathly Hallows Jewelry Collection by Alex & Ani. This collection is perfect for any female Potter fan who avoids costume jewelry. She'll love the beautiful design and artistry that Alex & Ani's known for in the style world! Available in both silver and gold metals, this Harry Potter holiday gift is a no-brainer!

Rowlings World of Harry Potter.

"There is nothing Dark about the Hallows"
Worn by all the trendiest wizards, the symbol of the Deathly Hallows is the mark of any true Potterhead.
