So many of us grew up wanting to hear those words, spoken by the late, great Robbie Coltrane: "You're a wizard, Harry."


Since the first book was published in 1997, Harry Potter has rarely been out of the news and is now fully embedded into our cultural zeitgeist. The enchanting story of a little boy who finds out he can do magic welcomed so many of us into the magical world of Hogwarts, the Ministry of Magic, time turners and hippogriffs.

The books and films follow Harry as he grows up and attends wizard school Hogwarts, along with best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. They face dangerous and exciting adventures as the dark wizard Voldemort grows in strength and the fate of the Wizarding World is left in Harry's hands.

Despite the fact that the last book was published in 2007 and the last film in 2011, the world is so expansive that fans still have so much to enjoy. And the great thing about Harry Potter is the wide range of age groups it appeals to; for children aged eight and above, there is pretty much something for everyone.

Whether you're convinced your Hogwarts letter just got lost in the post, or have a someone in your life whose go-to first date question is "What's your Hogwarts house?", we've got the Harry Potter gift for you. If you're adding to your own wish list or buying for the Potter-head in your life, check out our guide to the best Harry Potter gifts in 2022.
