Where To Buy A Harry Potter Christmas Sweater That's As Good As Mrs. Weasley's — PHOTOS
The only thing a true Harry Potter fan wants more than their long-lost letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? To unwrap a jumper on Christmas morning knitted with love by Molly Weasley. Here's where to buy a Harry Potter Christmas sweater, because your magical dreams aren't as impossible as you think.
Your Harry Potter Christmas sweater may not actually have Molly Weasley's warm touch, but there are some dupes out there that'll make you feel as if you're spending the holidays at the burrow. Harry Potter fans are used to movie merch that doesn't feel authentic (see: knock-off Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, every synthetic Gryffindor Halloween costume ever.) Surprisingly, though, there are several sweaters out there that are pretty darn convincing.
A Weasley-inspired sweater is a great gift for any HP-obsessed friend, or the perfect present to add to your own wish list. If all else fails, treat yo self — because, really, is there anything more perfect to cozy up in for ABC Family's next Harry Potter movie marathon weekend?
These sweaters were instant classics from the moment we first saw them in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in 2001. They're especially recognizable if your first name starts with R or an H — Universal Orlando's online store sells replicas that look exactly like the ones from the film.
If your name doesn't start with an R or an H and you're set on having your own initial on the sweater, there are some customizable options on Etsy. Slightly less similar but still pretty authentic, Sew Ecological will embroider your initial on a sweater in your choice of fabric and Harry Potter-inspired color. (You can even talk to the creator about sending her your own sweater to get $50 off.)
You can also buy various tees and sweatshirts inspired by the classic sweater, if you're looking for a less expensive or more casual option. Redbubble only sells them with the H and the R, but hey, who says you need you own initial?
If we can't have a bona fide Butterbeer or watch a Quidditch game on Christmas day, at least we can keep our Harry Potter-loving hearts warm in a movie-inspired sweater.
