The Coolest “Harry Potter” Backpacks, Purses, and Bags for Whatever You’re Doing This Fall

It’s almost September 1 – time to get back to Hogwarts! And while, with the current state of the world, kids and college students may or may not be physically heading back to school this fall, it never hurts to have the coolest bag to show off your fandom love, no matter what age you are or what you’re doing in the coming season.

The realm of Harry Potter–themed bags out there is vast, so we’ve pulled together a list of our favorites to give you some ideas for what kind of geeky bag you’d like to hold your precious belongings.

If you’re looking for something to hold your school supplies, Bioworld has a variety of licensed Potter-themed backpacks, like these ones covered in a Hogwarts alumni print or in Harry’s Hogwarts acceptance letters:

Of course, maybe all you’re doing in the coming months is heading to the store for the essentials. But that’s no reason not to treat yourself to a cool new Harry Potter purse. It’s the little things that keep us going. These House-themed purses have a wonderfully chic look while also being practical with both top handles and a shoulder strap.
