Harry Potter still holds a magical spell over millions of fans. It’s hard to believe, but it has been 16 years since J.K. Rowling released “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” the final book of the boy wizard’s epic series. And it’s been more than a decade since we last saw the Boy Who Lived in a movie on the big screen.

But Pottermania is still alive and well, and if there’s a Harry Potter fan in your life, you may be looking for the perfect gift for the child (or kid at heart) who can’t get enough of the world of Hogwarts and wizardry.

We have conjured up a list of 25 magical Harry Potter gifts that will leave your kids — or maybe even adults who are kids at heart — spellbound.
