7 Magical Harry Potter Gifts for Adults

Thanks to Universal Studios’ magical parks dedicated to the boy wizard, Harry Potter isn’t just for kids anymore

Attention, adult Muggles and Mudbloods! The Ministry of Magic has spotted your attempts to “borrow” your children’s Harry Potter memorabilia and is sending a crew of dementors from Azkaban Prison to thwart your thievery.

Your best escape route? Proceed immediately to Universal Orlando Resort and Islands of Adventure in Florida – home of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – and take refuge in Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley. If you have an insufficient amount of Floo powder to make the journey, then we highly recommend you consider conjuring these adult Harry Potter themed gifts instead.

Gryffindor Throw Blanket

This woven throw blanket features the Gryffindor shield and decorative fringes along the edges. Amazon

It’s the perfect blanket for warding off chilly nights at Hogwarts or your castle of choice. It’s also machine washable and Dementor resistant.


CLUE: Harry Potter

This version of the game you grew up with includes a board with wheels so rooms can move and secret passageways can reveal themselves. Good luck! Amazon

You’re going to need more than a Sorting Cap to figure out the mystery here. The challenge: Find a fellow Hogwarts student who has vanished from the school of wizards and witches. When you think you have your facts straight, proceed to Professor Dumbledore’s office to claim victory. (Note: No Nargles or Blibbering Humdingers were harmed in the making of this game.)

Wizard Chess Set

The set includes 32 chess pieces, the playing board and drawstring pouches to keep your game together. Amazon

Ron Weasley was a master of Wizard’s Chess in “The Sorcerer’s Stone” – how will you do? Unlike the movie version, you’ll need to cast your own spell over the pieces to move them – that is, you have to use your muggle hands. Play smart – Harry and Hermione are counting on you!

Morphing Mugs

These magical mugs can hold 11 ounces of butterbeer or pumpkin juice, but don’t put them in the microwave or dishwasher lest the spell be permanently broken. Amazon

Fill the plain-looking cups with a hot beverage and the parchment scroll of the Marauder’s Map will be revealed. Just don’t let Professor Snape catch you drinking any Polyjuice Potion out of these.


The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook

Harry Potter Cookbook
The cookbook contains more than 150 recipes – includes Treacle Tart (Harry’s favorite) – that can be made with strictly non-magical ingredients. Amazon

Sure, this is a gift meant for adults to share with their muggle children. But it takes more than a wand to conjure up treats such as Molly’s Meat Pies, Kreacher’s French Onion Soup and pumpkin pasties.

Throw Blanket with Sleeves

These Hogwarts-approved “robes” keep the wizarding school’s adult faculty warm on the coldest of British winter nights. Amazon

Thanks to the loose-fitting sleeves, there’s room under this outfit for a TV remote and a wizard’s wand. House rules: No conjuring up snacks after midnight – the crumbs on your robes will attract those pesky pixies.

Ceramic Spice Jars

If you learned nothing else from potions class, it’s that you need good quality ceramic jars to store those magical ingredients. Each of these hold 1.45 ounces. Amazon

The four houses of Hogwarts – Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Slytherin and Ravenclaw – are represented in these practical jars suitable for storing your spices. A cork-lined stopper makes sure your potion is preserved.
