25 Harry Potter Candles Perfect For This Season’s Gift Giving

No matter what wintery, holiday traditions (or lack thereof) you may (or may not) observe, I think we can pretty much all agree that gifts are always a good idea. ‘Tis the season of giving and receiving, and if those pretty packages just happen to contain holly jolly Harry Potter-themed candles — perfect for the book-loving Potterhead in your life, of course — even better. Nothing says: “I see your fandom, and I love you for it” more than a gift that’ll make the whole house smell like your Hogwarts House (team Ravenclaw!), or Mrs. Weasley’s cozy kitchen. The only thing book lovers seem to love more than book-inspired candles are Harry Potter-inspired candles — and, luckily for both giver and receiver, there are only about a million to choose from.

Whether your candle-loving Potterhead lives to go totally Hogwarts holiday crazy (in which case, a Mrs. Weasley's Cookies candle might be just the thing) or they’re the kind of reader who finds the magical mysticism of the Wizarding World puts them in a wintery mood (Elder Wands and Phoenix Feathers flame, anyone?) I guarantee you’ll find a candle that will make their winter season totally bright this year.

Here are 25 Harry Potter-inspired candles perfect for this season’s gift giving.
