11 Oddly Specific Harry Potter Items You Didn't Know You Needed Until This Very Moment
Potterheads are no stranger to Harry Potter merchandise. We've all got drawers full of t-shirts and sweaters; lightning bolt necklaces and Deathly Hallows rings; figurines and stuffed animals we probably should have outgrown a decade ago; and more new editions of the books than we can count. But, you might be surprised to know, there's still troves of Potter merch out there yet to be discovered. If you look past the usual reproduced Hogwarts crest hoodies and Dark Mark temporary tattoos, there are definitely pieces ranging from accessories to home goods, that you don't have in your collection. And, most likely, these are things that you never knew you wanted or needed.
But take it from a fellow lifelong Potter fan like me: you're going to find a reason to want every single one of these oddly specific items of merch. Whether you're looking for something to wear, something to decorate with, or something that will actually be useful in your every day life, there is something in the 11 picks below that you're going to need to add to your wish list. And, hey, if you're the ultimate Potter shopper and you already have these things at home, consider this the ultimate shopping list for all of the friends and family in your life.
