26 Harry Potter Gifts That Are Simply Magic to Prepare for Hogwarts
We fly through a storm, towards an abandoned lighthouse on a small rocky island. Inside, the Dursleys believe they are finally safe from the torrent of letters that assaulted their Privet Drive home. A little boy with a scar on his forehead looks at the time. His birthday is seconds away, and it seems he will be the only one celebrating it.
Suddenly, a terrifying sound is heard outside the building. As Mr. Dursley reaches for his gun, the door is blasted out of its hinges to reveal a huge man shrouded in darkness. Hagrid steps in and gives Harry Potter a gift that he can’t quite understand at the time: “You’re a wizard, Harry!”. And he might have added: “Real wizards look forward to having a collection of gifts to improve their powers!”.
Here, our favorite Harry Potter gifts of power you might want to keep close:

One of the most memorable symbols of the Harry Potter stories, this stunning replica Time-Turner is the perfect gift for any fan who wishes they could relive the excitement of the wizarding world once more.

Harry Potter Gryffindor Journal
Admittedly, throughout the Harry Potter books and films, Harry and his friends didn’t spend a large amount of time taking notes in their classes. But if they’d had journals as nice as this one – and perhaps fewer basilisk attacks – the gang would never have done anything else! Harry Potter fans are sure to ace their OWLS when they break out this eye-catching journal during their next lesson. Best of all: this gift is 100% Tom Riddle free!

The valuable Golden Snitch is in many ways the star of the Quidditch Field. Now, this very ball can be the star of a Harry Potter fan’s collection.
