Here's a cosy collection of winter warmers to really settle in for the colder months in wizarding style.
In the words of Ron Weasley, we “need to sort out our priorities” – and what better way to do that than with a classic Hogwarts Christmas jumper? This white snowy number is giving us the festive feels simply by looking at it – for there truly is nowhere like Hogwarts to give us the ultimate Christmas vibe.
If you’re based in the UK, this latest range of Harry Potter goodies from Primark feature these very cosy looking pyjama sets, themed around your Hogwarts house. Go mellow in yellow in this Hufflepuff number, or find the right house for you to match your snuggly style.
We love all of this cuddlesome clothing from the official Harry Potter shop, which has just launched a new loungewear range, all based around the Hogwarts Express and the general joy of starting term at the wizarding school. Why not check out this collection for something comfy, such as bathrobes and snuggly socks.
If you hear the song “Let it Snow”, and instantly think of Hedwig the snowy owl, we’ve got you. This fabulously cheerful red jersey is the perfect colour of Christmastime, and there’s little Hedwig, flying yonder, carrying a present, on the back. Wear this jersey in eyeshot of someone who is being a bit of a Scrooge, and you’ll magically transform them into a Christmas-obsessive.
Okay, but what if you really love Hedwig... to the extent you want to be Hedwig? Again, we’ve got you! Spread your wings and embrace your inner owl with this extremely cosy-looking onesie. With feather details on the arms, an owl face on the hook, and a cute letter pouch for your owl post, you will be both snuggly and ready to take flight within a moment’s notice.
Fly on over to the Harry Potter Shop.
Unless you’ve had your head stuck in a Vanishing Cabinet these past couple of weeks, you have probably heard of this enchanting new compendium of lists, maps, infographics and more: the Harry Potter Wizarding Almanac. Crammed with full-colour spreads, illustrated by a range of talented artists, this book will tell you everything you need to know about the Harry Potter characters, spells and locations – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Are you looking to spruce up your Christmas dinner this year with a touch of magic? Well, the first ever official Harry Potter Christmas Cookbook may just be the ticket. Packed with Wizarding World inspired recipes, from sweet to savoury, why not wow the family with these aesthetically pleasing (and seasonal!) dishes? With full-colour spreads and easy-to-follow instructions, you’ll be whipping up a Weasley jumper focaccia or a Golden Snitch popcorn ball in no time.
We love seeing the Harry Potter stories re-interpreted in so many fabulous ways, and the design team MinaLima have surpassed themselves with this latest contribution. The iconic third Harry Potter story has been immortalised in MinaLima’s unique style, full of meticulous detail, as ever. Flip through the pages and stumble upon beautiful full-colour drawings of some of your favourite things from this dark third instalment, such as the Knight Bus, Buckbeak the Hippogriff, and much more.
Pick up a copy here – and even discover a signed edition from the official MinaLima shop!
Speaking of MinaLima... Studio MinaLima, in collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, has created a collection of 11 pieces featuring a pattern based on the Black Family Tapestry, which we see Sirius showing to Harry in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
MinaLima’s Black Family Tapestry collection will be available in time for Christmas exclusively at House of MinaLima shops: in London from 11th November and in New York from 12th November. The collection will be available internationally for online purchase from minalima.com on the 12th January.
A shoutout to the more-neurotic gift-givers reading this: sometimes you’re worried someone might not like their main present, so you throw in a few side-presents just in case! And we completely relate. So, here’s a few smaller treats to pop in a stocking, or wrap up as an extra surprise.
Well, first things first! You might need a stocking!
This lovely wintery one from the Harry Potter shop comes filled with wizarding world presents, just in case you want to make life nice and easy for yourself.
Eat your heart out, Dobby. Here is the ultimate sock.
Hogwarts school isn’t often known for its beauty secrets (the fact Professor Snape doesn’t seem to wash his hair says it all) but you can absolutely ooze Harry Potter glamour with these fabulous nail kits from Glamnetic. Coming in Hogwarts house-colours or dainty press-on designs, glam up your claws with these magical additions in different shapes and sizes.
You can’t go wrong with a festive candle as a gift - but what if these candles were adorned with your favourite Harry Potter characters, in adorable kawaii form, in cheerful colours? Your wish is our command. This delightful range comes from Short Story, and features characters such as Draco Malfoy (scented cocoa and espresso flavour!) and Luna Lovegood (scented blackberry and Nargle taffy!!) among others. Each mini-candle, which has been lovingly handcrafted with an aroma that suits the character, also comes with an enamel pin to make this gift extra-special.
Ooh - and as if by magic, we have a little discount for you on this one. For a limited time only, enjoy 20% off Short Story’s entire Harry Potter collection - including brand new mini candles, air fresheners and bookmarks - using the code: HPFANCLUB

This year, The LEGO Group went above and beyond to represent the Wizarding World in the most innovative of fashions. This resplendent Hogwarts castle and grounds set proves just how creative you can be with LEGO, coming in at 2660 pieces. Watch out for all the little details too – such as a hidden Chamber of Secrets and a certain mischievous blue car caught in the Whomping Willow.
If you’re not too exhausted from building an entire Hogwarts, how about building a house-elf to help you? This lovely interpretation of Dobby comes with buildable accessories, such as the book where Dobby finds his famous sock in – and even Mrs Dursley’s delicious pudding that meets a messy ending in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Thankfully, this LEGO version is far more intact.
If you’re looking for something extra-enchanting this year, here’s a gift idea to give that special someone in your life the same facial expression as Harry Potter receiving his Firebolt.

Sometimes, when it comes to the season of giving, you might want to go a little deeper – gifting someone a great memory rather than something you unwrap. These Wizarding World experiences may be the perfect way to surprise someone in a larger-than-life sort of way!
The home of the Harry Potter films has perfectly crystallised the movie magic of the series – with full sets of some of your favourite Wizarding World locations. So why not gift this experience to someone with these souvenir gift tickets?
The tickets are inspired by the Hogwarts acceptance letter. The envelope is addressed to Mr. H. Potter at number 4 Privet Drive, (we’re sure you’re familiar with him!) and when unfolded, reveals a beautifully crafted letter personalised to your gift recipient, including a short message from the gift giver.

Earlier this year, Hogwarts Legacy rocked our worlds by introducing us to the wizarding school in the most detailed way we’d ever seen, via the medium of this epic, open-world RPG. Do you know someone who hasn’t played it yet who has been dying to visit Hogwarts? This gift could give them the closest thing to that desire.
The game is currently available on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®4 Pro, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles and PC, but is also coming soon to Nintendo Switch on the 14th November.
Perhaps you already know someone who has the game but wants to dig into it even deeper? Bloomsbury released “The Art and Making of Hogwarts Legacy” this year which should absolutely scratch that itch. Take a look.
