20 Magical Gift Ideas for Kids Who Love HARRY POTTER
“Yer a wizard, Harry!”
Show us a kid who doesn’t like Harry Potter and we’ll show you a real flying broomstick. Harry Potter is the best-selling book series of all time for good reason, after all. If you’re looking for a gift for a young wizard in your life, look no further.
1. Wizard in Training T-shirt
If you have a young “wizard in training” in your life, they’ll love this shirt. It shows the four houses at Hogwarts—Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw—and includes the wizarding school’s motto: Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titllandus (“Never tickle a sleeping dragon!”)
2. Funko POP Hermione Granger
I know, these Funko POP figures are bizarre, but they’re also HUGELY popular. Some kids collect them, and if you click this link there are various Harry Potter character to choose from.

8. Harry Potter Doll/Action Figure

Gift Guides by Interest
Welcome to Kid Gift Guides!
Here at KGG, we make buying gifts for children and teens simple, streamlined, and sanity-saving.
Our carefully curated lists are:
Organized by interest. If you know lil’ Jordan loves Pokemon or Jessica loves science, you can head straight for the lists that match a kid’s interests.
Filtered for quality. We only include top-rated items. We also run each gift idea through our “real kid filter,” and if we don’t hear an “Ooooh, I’d want that!” or “That’s so cool!” it doesn’t make our list.
Conscious of budget. Everyone’s budget is different, so for our main lists we try to keep most gifts between $5 and $30, with one or two up to $50. (Prices change all the time, so no guarantees, but we do our best.) For those who know they want to spend over $50, we also include Bonus Power Gifter ideas at the end of each list.
Our goal at KGG is to save you time, perhaps some money, and definitely some valuable brain space.
We make kid gift shopping easy. No guesswork. No duds.
