As a huge Harry Potter fan, I can tell you I am almost always going to love whatever
Harry Potter merch I receive as gifts. On the flip side, because I am a known lover of all things wizarding world, I tend to get a lot of Potter themed presents. Whether its the countless Harry Potter Funko Pop figurines (seriously, I have over 20 crowding my one lone bookcase and I have bought myself exactly zero of them) or the "I've seen this everywhere" Harry Potter themed t-shirts and sweaters, I sometimes feel like I have every single bit of wizarding swag out there.
But that's, of course, just not the case. Because our fellow Harry Potter fans include some of the most innovative, creative people around and they've taken to sites like Etsy in droves to create some of the most unique, out there, and totally special merch for any occasion. The list below includes 11
Harry Potter gifts, from homeware to candy, that your average HP fan is super likely not to already own. Any one of them would make a super special addition to their stockings on Christmas morning. And the best part is that they're all under $20. A Morse Code Bracelet That Spells Out 'Lumos' Lumos Morse Code Bracelet , $6, Etsy
They might have some Harry Potter inspired jewelry, but are any of them in Morse Code? I thought not. These insanely cool (and super affordable) bracelets use beads to spell out messages from the books including 'Always' and 'Lumos.' We could all use a little more light moving forward...why not encourage them carry it with them on their wrist?
A Mini Eyelops Owl Figurine For Their Bookshelf Mini Eyelops Emporium Owl Toy, $15, Etsy
We all need bookshelf decorations, right? And although the HP fan you're buying for is likely to have any number of Funko figurines and House crest memoribilia, chances are very high they don't have their very own owl from Eyelops Emporium. But you can change that with one of these adorable 3.5 inch beauties available in Snowy, Barn or Screech owl.
