If you're looking to gift a "Harry Potter" fan, don't trust anything that wasn't written by one (or, in this case, a pair of them).We put together a list of gift ideas to suit every witch, wizard, and half-blood out therefrom baking supplies to patronus lamps.Need more gift ideas' Check out all of our holiday gift guides for 2019.It's hard to imagine someone not being a "Harry Potter" fan, save for You-Know-Who himself. But for that one slightly obsessed friend who has a Deathly Hallows tattoo, is a total wiz at "Harry Potter" trivia, and has re-read the books multiple times, the term "fan" probably doesn't even begin to cover it.If they have yet to receive their Hogwarts letter, the next best thing they could get might just be one of these gifts. We rounded up something fun for every type of muggle and wizard, from the ones who just love the movies (aka the muggles) to the die-hards who can tell you the answer to what you'd get if you added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood (the wizards).The 5 best "Harry Potter" gifts:A pair of Vans sneakers themed by Hogwarts houseA Wizard Chess set that won't destroy itself every time you playA dainty Deathly Hallows bracelet or necklaceA glow-in-the-dark Marauder's Map throw-pillow caseA holographic notebook with a moving image from the homepage of the Daily ProphetShop more "Harry Potter" gift ideas:A pair of sneakers that'll protect your feet when you fall off your broomstick (or skateboard)Vans X Harry Potter sneakers, $72.99, at ZapposComing in different styles and colors for each of the houses (Slytherine's is a low top with a faux snakeskin finish, of course), along with more house-neutral pairs like a Marauder's Map print slip-on, Vans' "Harry Potter" line takes the Rock Cake for the best collab we've seen over the past few years. You can see all the other styles, like backpacks, sweatshirts, and T-shirts, here.A set of socks any house elf would love to receiveHarry Potter Ankle Socks Pack, $13.44, at AmazonI hope you'll be buying these for every house elf you know.
