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.

Harry Potter Woven Tapestry Throw Blanket, 48 x 60 Inches, Gryffindor Shield by Harry Potter

Hasbro Gaming Clue Harry Potter Board Game by Hasbro Gaming

New look on an old classic

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! Hasbro Gaming

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.)

Harry Potter Wizard Chess Set by The Noble Collection

Your move

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

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!

Harry Potter - Hogwarts Magical Marauder's Map - Parchment Paper Reveal - 11 oz Morphing Mugs Heat Sensitive Mug – Ceramic Color Changing Coffee Tea Mug by Morphing Mugs

Truly bewitched

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. Morphing Mugs

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: From Cauldron Cakes to Knickerbocker Glory--More Than 150 Magical Recipes for Wizards and Non-Wizards Alike (Unofficial Cookbook) by Dinah Bucholz

Who’s hungry?

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

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.

Harry Potter Comfy Throw Blanket with Sleeves, 48 x 71 Inches, Gryffindor Rules by Harry Potter

For couch-dwelling students

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

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.
