50+ Best 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.
