Hello, friends! Well, at this point, at least here in the US, we’re all still stuffed from Thanksgiving, and many of us are recovering from Black Friday and the massive kick-off to holiday shopping (I stayed home and shopped online in my PJ’s!).
So it’s time to kick back a little. Play some games or watch holiday movies. Put up the Christmas tree and have a mug of hot chocolate. Then, it’s time to see who’s left on your holiday gift-giving list.
This is the second in my list of holiday gift guides (you can see the first here), and this one is 100% focused on Harry Potter. This series has captured the hearts of children and adults for years now, and I’m more than willing to bet you have a big fan (or five!) on your list.
Here’s a sampling of all kinds of Harry Potter goodies that are sure to bring a smile to anyone who unwraps them!

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (Original Screenplay)
If you have big fans of the HP universe, chances are good they’ve either gone to see this new movie, or are planning to over the holidays. Surprise them with a copy of the movie’s screenplay in this lovely book!

Harry Potter Coding Kit by Kano
Have any of us ever wanted our own magic wand? (Better question: who HASN’T wanted their own magic wand?!?) This kit uses basic visual coding on a tablet (tablet not included, BYO iPad!) to program a wand that can do cool stuff. Pricier gift, but if you have a tech-loving Potter fan, this is a can’t miss item!

Harry Potter Wizard Chess Set
Potterheads who love strategy games, or those who already dabble in chess, will love this Wizard’s chess set. Now, to the best of my knowledge, this set will not actually destroy itself (or anything else) during play. But, you know, proceed with caution. Fifty points to Gryffindor!

Harry Potter Diagon Alley 3D Puzzle
This intricate puzzle requires patience, but the payoff looks amazing! Build a 3D model of Diagon Alley… once you’ve enjoyed the challenge of putting it together, leave it on display.
