15 Gifts For Gryffindors For Your Friends Who Wear The Red And Gold With Pride
When shopping for readers, you can’t go wrong with a Harry Potter inspired gift. After all, most Potter fans have often complained that their letter was lost in the mail (and we will constantly remind everyone that “Hogwarts is always there to welcome us home”). Something about this magical school is truly timeless, and many of us feel as much loyalty to Hogwarts as we feel to our actual alma maters. Because the truth is, whether you grew up reading Harry Potter, or you just discovered it, just by reading the series, you can totally claim Hogwarts as your second alma mater.
And if Harry Potter fans feel loyalty to Hogwarts itself, we feel just as much loyalty to our chosen Hogwarts house. Whether we took the Pottermore quiz to determine our sorting, or chose which house we identified with most, we all have the one house we’d root for in the House Cup.
People may say that it’s an easy choice to call yourself a Gryffindor, since the main characters of the series were mostly members of this house. But if you’re bold enough to declare yourself a member of this daring and chivalrous house, you belong there. Here are some gifts perfect for all the gutsy Gryffindors in your life.
