If you’re a Potterhead (or know someone who is), you may be on the hunt for the best Harry Potter gifts to celebrate the 20-plus-year-old book series.
The Harry Potter series, written by J.K. Rowling, released its first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, in June 1997. The series follows a young wizard named Harry Potter and his friends, Hermoine Granger and Ron Weasley, as they attend the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The books also followed Harry on his mission to stop Lord Voldemort, a dark wizard who killed his parents and wants to rule both the wizard and Muggle (non-magical) world.
After the release of Philosopher’s Stone (which was retitled in Sorcerer’s Stone in the United States), Rowling went on to release six more Harry Potter books: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The franchise also released eight movies and made household names out of stars like Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. With more than 500 million copies sold around the world, it’s clear that the Harry Potter series is one of the most successful franchises of all time. Most of us know a Potterhead (or a dozen) who know the books like the back of their hands. Ahead are the best Harry Potter gifts to give the ultimate fans of the series.
