Whether you’re running a tad behind on your holiday shopping or are looking for just one more perfect gift for a special someone, there’s one thing you can count on: Harry Potter fans (aka: Potterheads) like nothing more than some totally magical Harry Potter merchandise. Totes, pins, scarves, socks, Harry Potter t-shirts by the dozen — it’s hard to go wrong when holiday gift hunting for a Potterhead. (Seriously, it’s true. Harry Potter fans are just about the easiest people to purchase gifts for. AND there’s practically NO END to the Harry Potter swag out there just waiting to stuff a stocking or sit under a tree.)
The caveat? With so much Harry Potter apparel to choose from, it’s hard for a gift giver to know where to begin. Unless you’re a Potterhead yourself, you might be baffled by questions of what Hogwarts House colors to be mindful of, why that circle inside a triangle keeps appearing on everything, and what, exactly, a Muggle is, anyway. (Is it a compliment? An insult? Would someone want to broadcast it on their t-shirt?)
To make things a little easier on you (you are kinda bordering on leaving your holiday shopping to the last minute here, after all) here are 19 Harry Potter tees and tops that any Potterhead will love to receive this holiday season.
1. “Books Turn Muggles into Wizards” T-Shirt
2. “Happiness Can Be Found…” Dumbledore Quote Tee
3. Hogwarts Crest T-Shirt
4. Dumbledore's Army T-Shirt
5. “When in Doubt, Go to the Library” Sweatshirt
6. Platform 9 ¾ T-Shirt
7. Gryffindor Quidditch Sweater
8. “Dobby Will Always Be There” T-Shirt
9. “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” Tee
10. Wands T-Shirt
11. Bellatrix Lestrange T-Shirt
12. “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone” Tee
13. “Just A Wizard Girl…” Top
14. Elder Wand T-Shirt
Rumor has it (and also, J.K. Rowling told us) that the core of the Elder Wand is the tail hair of a Thestral, apparently: "a powerful and tricky substance that can be mastered only by a witch or wizard capable of facing death.” So, you know, not super cheery. But it makes a festive tee.
15. House Crest Banners Hoodie
“You might belong in Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart… you might belong in Hufflepuff, where they are just and loyal… or yet in wise old Ravenclaw, if you've a ready mind… or perhaps in Slytherin, you'll make your real friends…” However you’re sorted, you need this sweatshirt.
