21 Harry Potter Christmas Ornaments You Need in 2018
There’s no better way to add a touch of magic to your holidays.
With the first heavy snowfall of the season, thoughts turn from the spooktacular to yuletidings. Do you remember Harry Potter’s first Christmas? Hagrid dragged 12, 10-foot trees behind him as thick snowflakes tumbled on the wind. Once in the Great Hall, Professor Flitwick helped to decorate them all with glittering ornaments and lights. It seemed that the castle itself shivered with anticipation, as so many of the school children were.
With December fast approaching, it’s time to capture a little of that nostalgia as you begin to deck your halls. There’s no better way to add a touch more magic than to trim that perfect tree with some fantastic Harry Potter ornaments.
Show your pride with a crest (or four), have a Hogwarts letter for each family member, or add a little sentiment to your holiday decorations this year. These nerdy ornaments may not make your tree stack up to the ones in Hogwarts’ Great Hall, but they’re sure to put a smile on any Potterhead’s face.
Take a look at the list below to check out our top 21 Harry Potter Christmas ornaments:
No Potions Master would be caught dead without a sample of the Harry Potter universe staples on-hand, though Professor Snape may deduct points for improper storage. These amazing little bottles are handmade by Rock & Luna. They come with three hook options to choose from, or no hook at all if you prefer to display these year-round.
Pick your poison (or, your potion, as it were) from a selection of seven options, ranging from innocuous Floo Powder to the notorious Veritaserum. Bottle sizes vary between 1½” to 3” depending on your potion selection, and each cork is sealed with a clear glue, so you don’t need to worry about getting unicorn blood out of your carpet should it fall.
