Mrs Weasley’s Comforting Hot Chocolate | Blogtober 2019

mrs weasley

The weather is getting cooler and Autumn is well and truly in full-swing so that means only one thing for me: hot chocolate! I love being all snug in a hat, scarf and gloves with a steaming drink in your hands. Either that or being tucked under a blanket, watching a film with it! Some people love drinking this and others enjoy making it for others to enjoy. I imagine that Mrs Weasley would be one of those people!

Close your eyes and imagine Mrs Weasley in her kitchen, humming the latest Celestina Warbeck song playing on the radio. She has one of her spoons stirring away at some milk warming on the stove while she broke apart some chocolate frogs. You can hear the Weasley kids, Harry and Hermione messing around with gnomes in the garden and she smiles.

Yeah, this post turned into a story! Haha!

Mrs Weasley’s Hot Chocolate (V & GF)

Ingredients

250ml almond milk/oat milk
2 tsp cacao powder
1-2 tbsp agave honey/maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon/ginger/vanilla extract
1 tsp chia seeds

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized pan, pour in your choice of milk along with the cacao powder, sweetener, flavouring and chia seeds. (I’ve heard so many benefits of chia seeds! I even have them in my porridge so why not in hot chocolate too!)
  2. Bring all the ingredients to a low boil while gently continuously stirring everything.
  3. When it starts to boil, take off the heat and pop into a blender. (Just to make everything silky smooth!)
  4. If you’ve got a friend joining you, divide the mixture into two mugs (Pick a fun mug! My favourite is a Marauder’s Map one!)
  5. Have a fun time choosing which topping you’d like to have! You could have cacao nibs for added chocolate, marshmellows (Holland & Barratt do some great vegan and gluten free ones!) and whipped cream!
  6. If you enjoy, Mrs Weasley will be so happy!

This little recipe is so simple and beyond yummy! I’ll be having mine tonight while I watched The Dragon Prince on Netflix!

Where would you drink your hot chocolate?

Review | Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Illustrated Edition

goblet of fire

It’s October 8th and that means it’s the publication day for the new Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Illustrated Edition.

I’ve been super excited for this book to be released because it actually has Hufflepuff mentioned a whole bunch! Okay…so…there are some students who do not represent us well but we’ve got Cedric Diggory!

He is like total Hufflepuff!

I couldn’t wait to see what magic Jim Kay had created especially with scenes like the Tasks and the Yule Ball! So many incredible moments that I adored in the original Goblet of Fire!

This is going to be a pretty photo-heavy post so if you haven’t been able to get the book yet, I do have other Harry Potter posts for you to enjoy!

goblet of fire

Alright…I’m just going to say it! If you’ve watched the Very Potter Musicals, then am I the only one who thinks Ron is beginning to look more and more like Joey Richer! If I start to see Red Vines appearing, then it’s fate! Haha!

goblet of fire

THE BURROW!! Yes, I’m using caps here! I’m using them because I always feel so happy to see this place illustrated. It’s so magical, full of memories and so many kids! They made the place such a home and one of my favourite details of the book has to be this teeny drawing by one of the Weasley kids. I think it’s of Mr Weasley but not sure which of the children the other two people are.

Could be Bill?

I absolutely adore this double-page spread of the Beauxbaton students flying towards Hogwarts! It looks as majestic as I imagined and the horses look pretty regal themselves! You can’t go wrong with flying horses!

goblet of fire

I have to feel a little sorry for Viktor with this image! He’s looking a little skinnier than I imagined and a cross between Hiccup from How To Train A Dragon and Bran Stark from Game of Thrones! He had been on a long boat ride on the Durmstrang ship so maybe he’s sea-sick? Haha.

That look Ron is giving towards Hermione with Krum is everything to my shipping heart! I’ve always been a big Ron/Hermione shipper and it was so much fun seeing him get jealous and yet being utterly hopeless with his feelings! By the way…Hermione is in her periwrinkle dress!! I have been waiting years for this moment! THANK YOU JIM!!

To be honest, I could literally post every single picture from Goblet of Fire into this post but we would literally be here forever and this is already way too long!! If you’ve gotten to this point, tell your favourite colour in the comments!

Will you be buying this book or do you prefer the original copy instead?

Mina Lima’s Harry Potter Wallpaper Collection

For many years now, I’ve been a massive fan of Mina Lima and their work! How could I not when their graphic designs are genius and they designed for Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts?! The news that came out in the last few hours is that they have created a selection of Harry Potter wallpaper! I’ve been wanting nerdy wallpaper like this for a long time so this made me super excited!

I wanted to sit down and write about my thoughts on the designs you can get and which one I would personally buy to consolidate the status of my Potter Palace!

wallpaper

Quidditch Wallpaper (£89)

Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets Toy Story vibes from this wallpaper! Haha! That’s a good thing by the way in case Mina Lima ever find this post! I think this is so bright and colourful! Perfect for a little witch or wizard’s bedroom! If I was young, I’d have totally begged my parents to put this in my room!

Marauders Map Wallpaper (£89)

This is a wallpaper that I’ve always admired whenever I’ve visited the Mina Lima shop and seen the Marauders’ Map design! It’s an amazing part of the books and the films so would be just as great in a bedroom too! Now if only I could say ‘I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good’ to activate it and make it move!

Maybe that’s an idea for the futuristic Mina Lima shop!

Hogwarts School Library Wallpaper (£89)

I want! I need! I must own! My inner Hermione and Scorpius are literally crying to have this immediately in my flat somewhere! It would either go in my bedroom or even in my little office where I keep all my books anyway. It has such a magical feel about it and I half expect the books to suddenly come away from my wall and fly in the air!

Daily Prophet Wallpaper (£89)

I’m going to admit and say that I don’t personally like this as a wallpaper. I think it’s just too much and might make a room look a little like a prison cell. Plus I’m not a massive fan of black and white on my walls so that might have something to do with it. I’m not sure where in a home this would fit but maybe my interior design friends would have a clue for any Potter fans tempted!

Black Family Portrait Wallpaper (£89)

Finally we have the design that was made to become a wallpaper one day and that’s the Black Family Tree! It’s literally like a wallpaper in Order of The Phoenix so it was only a matter of time before it found its way into the muggle world and onto our shelves! This could be used in any room I think. I’d probably place it on a wall in my living room or even down a corridor.

Don’t take my word though…I’m stylistically challenged!

Overall I love all of these wallpapers regardless of whether they’re to my taste or not. They are very pricey so it would depend on your budget if you wanted it in your home. I think I’d only be able to use on a small wall because I’m a broke little half-blood and £89 is too steep for me to go crazy!

What do you think of these Harry Potter wallpapers by Mina Lima? Would you use them?

Doctor Who Fandom Harry Potter

New In Fandom | September 2019 (Harry Potter, Doctor Who…)

september

Harry Potter: The Mysteries of Hogwarts (£16.99 – 2nd September) | The Film Vault (Volume 1) (£11.99 – 5th September) | The Film Vault (Volume 2) (£11.99 – 24th September) | Professor Trelawney Funko (£9.99 – 27th September) | Fawkes Funko (£9.99 – 27th September) | Cedric Yule Ball Funko (£9.99 – 27th September) | Harry Potter Funko Advent Calendar (£49.49 – 30th September) | Fleur Yule Ball Funko (£9.99 – 27th September) | 13th Doctor SDCC T-Shirt (£15.99 – 3rd September) | Marvel Funko Advent Calendar (£49.49 – 30th September) |

So much incredible stuff is coming out this September and you just knew that I would fangirl all over the Harry Potter merchandise appearing! I did include a Doctor Who t-shirt too so I did vary myself! Haha! I’m not sure how many people actually read this series of posts but I love looking at what is coming up and popping each on my wishlist.

Mysteries of Hogwarts & Film Vaults 1 and 2

September means a selection of Jodie Revenson books all about the Harry Potter world!

If you’re looking for a short but incredibly detailed book of illustrations about Hogwarts, then you’ll want to have to look out for this new book from Jody! She’s written almost as many books as Jo at this point and it’s amazing to see all the facts that she’s gathered from the books and the films! It is a bit expensive at £16.99 for 48 pages but it’s good for any collector. You’ve also got the two Film Vaults coming this month too!

Professor Trelawney Funko Pop

Next up, we have the Professor Trelawney Funko pop and I’ve been waiting for Funko to bring her out! Ever since I read the Prisoner of Azkaban and saw what Hermione thought of her, I’ve loved her! Even more so when Emma Thompson just brought us to life for us!

Fawkes, cedric diggory and fleur delacour funko pop

Another 3 Funkos that I need to add to my collection have to be Fawkes, Cedric and Fleur! Fawkes is the most beautiful phoenix that I wish we’d gotten to read more about in the Potter books. Maybe we’ll see how Dumbledore gets him in the Fantastic Beasts films? We also have the Yule Ball pops appearing on the market and they’re adorable!! I do love Ginny’s but there is just something about the way Cedric and Fleur look here that I adore.

Yule Ball and Classic Marvel Advent Calendars

Before you say anything…yes, I’m including some advent calendars in my September post! You’re never too early to mention them because so many fans will be wanting these that you want to buy it quick so they don’t sell out! I’m not actually planning on getting the Potter Funko calendar because I’m planning to get the full-size Pops, but I do know a lot of people will want! If you love Marvel, then you will need to grab the Classic Pop calendar! It’s so quirky and I love!

13th doctor t-shirt

Finally we have this stunning Doctor Who t-shirt!! I’m actually in love with the design of the 13th Doctor, the inverted coloured Tardis and then the explosion of colour behind it! I actually think that would make an amazing tattoo! Haha!

What fandom things are you excited to see coming out this September?

My Thoughts On The New ‘Cursed Child’ Look

Cursed Child

Before I get chatting, I want to thank Ameila for my first ever Showbills (they’re obviously Cursed Child and the original Broadway cast as well), and Bertie (@OfficialBertiee) for the Back To Hogwarts badge from September 1st just gone!

All of this yellow is making this Hufflepuff very happy!

Now that’s out of the way, I think we need to chat more Cursed Child! If you haven’t been following all of the drama over on Twitter, you may not have heard that Warner Brothers has taken over the rights for Cursed Child. This news clearly had everyone asking questions: Was there going to be a movie version? Were we getting a proper book following Albus and Scorpius?

We just didn’t know!

What we found out was that this new change meant a whole new look! Out with the font that you see in the picture above! In with the font we know from the films! To say that we were kind of shocked about this new change was a bit of an understatement. You’re clearly wanting to know what my thoughts are about this since it is the title of this post. Haha!

Honestly?

I don’t particularly like it.

Don’t get me wrong…I loved the font for the movie posters because that was what we knew. That font meant movie. However I’ve been a fan of Cursed Child since it popped into the West End back in 2016 and it was the same thing. It had its own nice, clean font that I connected with it. Change is a bit of a big deal for me as it comes hand in hand with being autistic.

If the changes to all its marketing had been gradual, then I don’t think I would have minded as much but everything has just hit us all at once. That doesn’t sit all that well with me. I do understand why it may have changed since Warner Bros was in charge of the Potter films and, since it’s carrying on the same path (sort of) as the films…I get it.

It’s still sad to see the old font go. I’m glad that I managed to get one last picture with my friend Kate last month!

Other than the change, there are a couple of other little things that bother me. The first thing is how the new program looks. I think it looks a bit badly photo-shopped. The text is too close together, the nest is off-centre and…you get the picture. Maybe it’s just going to take me some getting used to and besides, I go to see the play for the performances and not just the marketing.

The other thing is the banner on social media reminds me way too much of Shazam! It doesn’t feel as original as the old one used to look. Plus the little trailer introducing the new look gives a way a massive spoiler that I’ve spent years trying to keep secret from friends!! I even have badges telling me to keep it secret!

Eventually the new look will be old news and we’ll be back to less drama. That’s unless you count the Cursed Child haters that like to pop up every now and again.

What are your thoughts on the new Cursed Child look? Do you like it or do you prefer the old one?

My ‘Back To Hogwarts’ Hufflepuff Haul

Hufflepuff

Happy 1st of September! It’s that time again…time for everyone to go back to Hogwarts! I’ve been reading so many fun tweets from everything that happened at King’s Cross this morning and made me a little sad that I couldn’t make it. Silly muggle trains. All that said, I still prepared myself for today with a Hufflepuff haul!

All of these items were collected during August and I love every single one! I do have two other bits but blogger!Dee forgot to put them in the flatlay like an idiot. Haha!

Hufflepuff Key-ring (£2 – Primark)

You know when you go into a store with the intention of buying a few things and ended up buying only a teeny thing? That happened to me. I’d really wanted this gorgeous Hufflepuff sweater I’ve seen friends with but they didn’t have any in my size so one gutted badger over here. I didn’t want to leave the shop without anything so decided to grab this key-ring because it’s adorable and you can never have too many Potter key-rings!

Hufflepuff Premium Notebook (£12.99 – The Shop Under The Stairs)

The first of the two notebooks I bought last month and I just love the design of this!! I always feel better with black notebooks because I don’t like to see any stains on them and it just seems more sleek. You have this beautiful badger design connected with the giant H of Hufflepuff. Part of me thinks the badger looks a teeny bit like a mouse but still adorable!

Hogwarts: A History Journal (£12.95 – MinaLima)

Yeah…obviously this isn’t a Hufflepuff thing but I HAVE A HOGWARTS A HISTORY!!! My friend Kate and I visited MinaLima when I was down in London and I knew straight away that I was buying this journal! I’ve wanted a copy of this ever since Philosopher’s Stone and Hermione quoted reading from it. One day I hope we’ll get the real thing because it has to happen but I couldn’t deny myself it. It feels like such a luxury item with the gold foiled edges, the fact that it’s hardback and simply because MinaLima create only the best Potter designs!

Hufflepuff Bookmark (£8.99 – The Carat Shop)

I love anything that has a gorgeous illustration of Hufflepuff but I adore this bookmark by The Carat Shop! It seems to be like the Hufflepuff badge that the students at Hogwarts wear with the coat of arms take. It’s so cute, is stainless steel and shows off 3 of the traits that makes up a Hufflepuff! Seeing as I have a bunch of books to read and around 3 Hufflepuff bookmarks, I don’t think I’ll be losing a page anytime soon!

Hufflepuff Card Holder (£4.95 – MinaLima)

I ended up having to my old Doctor Who card holder into the bin after around 3 years! (I made it last even when it was hanging by an edge!). I now have this gorgeous Hufflepuff card holder that feels so plush and like it’ll last me a long time! I can’t wait to see what my local bus drivers think when they see it!

How has your September 1st been so far? Did you go down to King’s Cross?

An Anxiety Guide To September 1st at King’s Cross

September 1st

For the last 5 years I’ve been going to Kings Cross every September 1st to celebrate when everyone goes back to Hogwarts. Do we care that it’s only a fictional event? Nope! Do we wish we could go back? Heck yes! I’m still waiting for that darn acceptance letter.

I loved the idea of being in an area full of other Harry Potter fans where you can meet new people, chat about theories and your Houses and get ready for when 11am hits. Kings Cross is an incredible place to be especially as they embrace ‘Back To Hogwarts’ with an announcement over the tannoy.

As the years have gone by the crowds have gotten bigger! Last year was a lot busier since Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law turned up. Everyone was super excited and I was gutted that I didn’t get a chance to be there earlier. My anxiety has increased with the crowds so I thought I’d try to create a bit of an anxiety guide.

get to the station early

If you’re able to then try to get to Kings Cross a bit earlier. It might still be a working station but that you can still find areas that are quiet like the food court or outside. You can take your time to relax and maybe even go to the Platform 9 3/4 shop to look around. They have this incredible mini trunk you can get with your initials on!

take a friend

One of my triggers is feeling overwhelmed and by myself. It’s kind of ironic I feel that way since I usually prefer being on my own. Busy situations tend to make me a little clingy so I try to take a friend or meet up with a friend each September 1st. I don’t feel alone with my anxiety if I have someone to chat to. Even if I chat with someone new and make a new friend that way!

try using bachs remedy

Bachs Rescue Remedy is a product I’ve been using for a few years whenever I’ve been out and about. I first used the drops which taste amazing but they were a bit too awkward to bring around with me. When I saw that I could get chewing gum or pastilles, it made my life much easier.  Whenever I feel my anxiety flaring I can chew on my gum and it helps. No-one needs anxiety getting in the way of their Potter time!

know when to leave

I know you’ll want to have as much fun as possible but you also need to know when the right time to leave is. It can be so frustrating to leave something early but you need to think about yourself. No fandom or event is worth triggering your mental health and causing you to have an attack. Whether you have to leave before 11am or immediately after…it’s okay.

Will you be going to September 1st this year? How do you cope with your anxiety?

Hogwarts Stationery & Supply Ideas | Back To School

school

Gryffindor Lunch Bag (£16) | Mini Hogwarts School Trunk (£39) | Honeydukes Eraser Set (£17.99) | Hogwarts School Backpack (£18.95) | Deluxe Stationery Set (£7) | Hogwarts Flip-Top Bottle (£6) | Harry Potter Exercise Books (£4) | Harry Potter Travel Mug (£8)

It might still be the beginning of August but right now lots of kids and their parents are in the process of getting ready to go back to school/college/university! Even if I’m excited for this Back-To-School season purely because I’m addicted to stationery and there are so many incredible offers around during this time! Of course, on September 1st, everyone is heading back to Hogwarts from Kings Cross!

Cue Harry Potter school supply post!

Gryffindor Lunch Bag

You can’t have school without focusing on the time in your day…lunch!! I wish lunch bags like this had existed when I was at primary school but nope. I’m living through all the kids! This lunch bag has a carry handle, a zipped opening to keep things inside the bag and insulation inside to make sure your sandwiches are kept cool! There is only a Gryffindor bag on the website which is sad but you could get a Hogwarts one or a chibi Potter bag!

Mini Hogwarts School Trunk

This is like THE dream bag to own! Look at it! I’ve always wanted to own a Hogwarts school trunk with my initials on it but it was either only available in another country or too expensive! This is the closest I would get to owning one and it isn’t too much either! Not only would you get a trunk with your name on it but you’d get a personalised Hogwarts letter too!

Honeydukes Eraser Set

If you’ve ever wanted the sweets from Honeydukes to last whenever you’ve bought them or been given as a present, then you can’t go wrong with these erasers! These little erasers are so cute!! You get a mini Jelly Slug, Chocolate frog, Sugar skull and Cauldron cake! Perfect for any little Scorpius Malfoy out there!

Hogwarts School Backpack

School always means trying to find that perfect bag or backpack to carry all your books and stationery! My school never let us have crazy backpacks like this. We had to have plain and simple which was so boring! If only I could have had a Hogwarts one to take with me! Remember to carry too much in your bag or you’ll get shoulder/back ache!

Deluxe Stationery Set

Lately Sainsburys has been incredible with selling cheaper Harry Potter products! I never knew they did so much! You can’t jot down work or make it look cool without some stationery and who else wouldn’t love owning some deluxe Gringotts stationery! I imagine the goblins would be very happy to know that you own one!

Hogwarts Flip-Top Bottle

It’s so important to keep yourself hydrated when you’re at school! Whether it’s in class, during break/lunch or heading home. I know some primary schools have water taps that students can drink from or fill up their bottle but not sure about secondary! Still keep hydrated, big kids at college/university!!

Hogwarts Vintage Exercise Books (2pk)

If you watched Crimes of Grindewald then you will know that there were a few flashbacks into Newt and Leta’s time at Hogwarts! The genius people at Mina Lima created these vintage school books for the students and I love them so much! Simple yet classic! Those guys can never create anything wrong in my eyes. You can get these exercise books at Sainsburys right now! RUN!

Hogwarts Travel Mug

This mug is for all of you people who have to commute! Early mornings can be super hard especially when you have to catch a bus or get a train! It’s even harder when it’s winter! With a travel mug you can put your favourite hot drink to keep yourself awake during the morning! Plus it stops you having to buy a hot drink!

What do you love to buy during back to school season?

Review | Calling All Witches by Laurie Calkhoven

Calling All Witches

It feels like forever since I last did a book review so here is a brand new one for you, of course, all about Harry Potter called Calling All Witches! Not just Harry Potter for a change but all the females in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts universe. When I say all the females, I mean ALL OF THEM! Not just the main ones. I saw this book on my wander around Waterstones and fell in love with the illustrations. You could tell they were based off the actresses who played them but there were definitely little differences!

See?

Doesn’t Hermione look beautiful?! You get the name of the character, 3 words to describe them, a quote about that character and then a few paragraphs chatting about more about their journey. I love how there isn’t pages and pages on detail because we already know and love these ladies and so many books are there already with all the detail you can want. Calling All Witches also has little topics you can work on about specific characters such as what you remember and so on!

Luna’s page definitely has to be one of my favourites because it really shows off her style and charm compared to the others. We obviously have a copy of The Quibbler, a thestral (because that’s how she and Harry really start to connect), some Spectospecs, her cork charm to keep away the Nargles and Ravenclaw’s diadem which is a Horcrux! I think the Ginny page up above describes more the book version rather than the film version but that’s just my opinion! Haha!

I love that we got to see Laurie’s take on how the more minor characters looked if they weren’t featured more in the films such as Helga Hufflepuff and Rowena Ravenclaw! Helga looked so sweet and Rowena so radiant! We also got to see more of Alice Longbottom, Lily Potter and Bunty (from Fantastic Beasts!). I wish we could have seen more of them but I will happily accept their little mentions in this!

What are your thoughts on Calling All Witches and who is your favourite witch in the series?

11 Magical Harry Potter Gift Ideas For Witches & Wizards

gift ideas

I know it’s not Christmas but there are so many opportunities to get gifts for different occasions such as birthdays, graduations, new babies…you name it, there is someone who needs a gift. I’m going to pick 20 gifts for that special witch or wizard in your life!

for the little witches & wizards

“When In Doubt, Go To The Library” Onesie Set (£38.92)

This set is adorable!! For any parents that end up calling their daughter Hermione or have a little one that may grow up to love books, this set would be amazing! I found this on Etsy and fell in love with it! With the set you get a onesie with the quote on the front, a Quidditch beanie, a Quidditch pair of leggings and some headbands! The onesie is organic so should be good for anyone who worries. The onesie has some built-in mittens, the leggings have a yoga-type waistband so it isn’t uncomfortable for a newborn, the hat has a hidden seam inside so it doesn’t rub on your baby’s head and the headband actually stretches as they grow!

I Roar For Gryffindor Sleepsuit and Bib Set (£4.95)

For any teeny Gryffindors out there, I think they would love this set. They get to show off their House colours at bed-time or around their home and have a bib to keep everything all nice and tidy! The bib does say ‘Future Wizard’ but I’m sure a little girl would love the sleepsuit to show off what a brave little girl she is! It’s actually been reduced from £14 to £4.95 so yay bargains!

Honeydukes T-Shirt (£10)

What I wouldn’t give for this t-shirt to come in adult size! It’s so cute! I have one major sweet tooth and don’t think I’d have many teeth left if I had magical sweets. It has sugar quills, chocolate frogs, Bertie Botts and other sweets sticking out of the pocket and over the t-shirt!

Hogwarts Boy PJs with shorts (£10)

No kid likes to be hot at night so, for any wizards from 5-6 years all the way to 12-13 years, I bet they would love! What is really cool about the PJ top is the design on front. Hogwarts is all designed and connected like constellations and it’s stunning. I think a Scorpius Malfoy would have liked this as a kid.

For the guys

Deathly Hallows Men’s T-Shirt (£14.99)

Something I’m always jealous of the guys for having and that is that they have amazing nerdy t-shirts! They’re so cool and creative! Look how cool this Deathly Hallows t-shirt is. It’s obviously the shape but it’s made out of words of the 3 elements that make it: the Invisibility Cloak, the Elder Wand and the Resurrection Stone. Together they make the Master of Death. So simple but amazing!

Charms Men’s T-Shirt (£14.99)

Another brilliant t-shirt! It is black with rainbow writing that labels some of the spells and charms used in Harry Potter along with the wand movements too! I’d probably get arrested for staring too much at a guy’s chest and trying to copy the wand movements too much.

Deathly Hallows Wallet (£13.45)

Every time a guy and he pays for something, he has a wallet so why not gift your special man with this beautiful Deathly Hallows wallet. I promise there are tons of men products that aren’t just this symbol…I just think it looks cool! It has the main Deathly Hallows in the middle but it also has tons of teeny ones engraved into the fabric!

For the ladies

Harry Potter Wand Necklace (£25)

This is something on my Christmas wishlist or birthday wishlist! I’ve been meaning to treat myself to it for so long and, if I do well with my mental health in the next few months, I’m going to get it. This is a silver-plated replica of Harry’s wand that you can get from WB Studio Tour London! As well as Harry’s, you can get Dumbledore’s and Hermione’s wands! A little sad that Ron has been left out again but maybe he’ll be added at a later date? Please?

Wingardium Leviosa Kit (£10)

One of my favourite scenes in the Harry Potter films has to be the moment Hermione is trying to teach Ron how to perform Wingardium Leviosa! This special set actually lets you levitate a feather just like Hermione. You even get her wand to do it with her. Maybe you’ll have the magic touch that will have Hogwarts contacting you!

Marauder’s Map Shoes (£32.99)

If the Vans x Harry Potter collection is too expensive for you right now, then you can pick out these Marauder’s Map shoes from EMP as a gift! They are just as cool-looking and it has the little shoeprints wandering around them! So cute and only half the price!

Loungefly Magical Creatures Purse (£32.99)

You can’t have a Harry Potter gift ideas list without something from Loungefly! This is another brand I would like to work with one day because they have such beautiful purses and other fandom items such as bags, lunch-boxes, tablet cares and more! I love all the little details on this purse showing different magical creatures from the series like Fawkes, a thestral and Hedwig!

What would be on your Potter gift ideas list?
