We are so close to Christmas. If you’re still trying to fit in some last-minute Christmas shopping, this list is chock-full of presents and ideas for you to pick from. Show your love for that special someone with these magical gifts!
Mrs. Weasley’s cozy holiday sweaters are all the rage this holiday season. The famed sweaters, embroidered with “R” and “H,” are now on sale for Muggles at Penneys. Ron’s is beautiful burgundy, Harry’s is navy blue, and they both have a little shimmer to them. At just £18, it’s rumored they are just as cozy as they look.
Urban Outfitters is often known for its eclectic knickknacks. But recently, the retailer added new merchandise that will be sure to wow Harry Potter fans. The Harry Potter Enchanted Mood Candle Light is an electric color-changing candle with the Hogwarts crest across the front. Turn on the candle for a little ambiance in the color of your Hogwarts House. Here’s the best part – simply wave your hand over the candle’s faux flame to change the color! Now you can reenact Dumbledore’s start-of-term speech from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in style. The candle is on sale at Urban Outfitters or on the retailer’s website for $25.
If you don’t already have your traditional Christmas stocking, then now’s the perfect time to grab one. A Golden Snitch stocking has just gone up for sale on Merchoid, and it’s to die for. The top is trimmed with shimmery gold sequins, and the body features the Golden Snitch flying around. Supplies are limited, so grab yours while you still can. The stocking is available for purchase on Merchoid’s website for $16.99.
If you’re a collector of figurines, check out this figurine of Gellert Grindelwald.

Among the many products we see from retailers, there is a newly released Hedwig figurine on the market from JAKKS Pacific.

The figure’s head turns 180° and includes 12 unique owl sounds. The toy costs $19.99 and can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Target.
We all watched Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and wished we could conjure our own Patronus Charm. For now, the Harry Potter Expecto Patronum Snow Globe might be as close as we can get.

This is available from Hot Topic stores for $26.90 or online for a discounted price of $16.14.
Also from Hot Topic comes another Christmas decoration. At 48″ across, the Harry Potter Marauder’s Map Fleece-Lined Tree Skirt will make your tree sparkle.
