The holidays are finally upon us, and the season of gift giving has arrived. With the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Potter-mania has returned and a new hero has been (re)introduced to the Wizarding World: Newt Scamander. Our new hero brings forth the dawning of the age of the Hufflepuff, and those of us loyal, dedicated and patient enough to be considered Puffs are ready to rock our yellow and black with pride. Being a Hufflepuff myself, and therefore a naturally good finder, I’ve put together a list of gift ideas for the Hufflepuff in your life:
- Harry Potter Hufflepuff Girls Jogger Pants // Hot Topic // $29.90
- Patronus Inside: Hufflepuff Inspired Bath Bomb! // FizzyFairyApothecary // $5.50
- ‘You Might Belong In Hufflepuff’ Sorting Hat Song Quote Necklace // LiteraryGiftsUK // $9.13+
- FUNKO Pop! Newt Scamander Vinyl Figure // Hot Topic // $12.50
- Newt Scamander Hufflepuff Scarf by elope // Amazon // $28.95
Despite the misconception that Hufflepuffs are fat (look just because our common room is next to the kitchen and our ghost is the Fat Friar doesn’t mean ANYTHING), Hufflepuffs are known for dedication and patience, especially when it comes to working it in the gym. These Hufflepuff Girls Jogger pants are a perfect fit for the active badger on your holiday shopping list!
‘Puffs are hard working and unafraid of toil, which means they are typically in need of a bit of rest and relaxation. These Hufflepuff themed bathbombs from FizzyFairyApothecary, who specialize in geeky-themed bath bombs, are a magical way to sink into your bath and find your inner patronus. Once the bathbomb has dissolved, leaving your bath smelling like the Hufflepuff common room (cinnamon!), you’ll find a surprise patronus charm hidden inside. Even better: the shop owner takes custom orders in case your Hufflepuff isn’t a fan of the default scent.
If your Badger Babe is a fan of baubles, this Hufflepuff Sorting Hat Quote necklace is an excellent match. It’s made out of actual pages from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and showcases JK Rowling’s description of our favorite houses’s traits. For toy collectors or fans of the new franchise, this Newt Scamander POP is the perfect addition to your shelf. Donning his signature blue coat and holding a Fwooper egg this is a perfect Funk Pop! likeness of Newt, with my only complaint is that his signature scarf is missing.
Speaking of scarves… as I spend hours this holiday season knitting my own Hufflepuff scarf (more on that later), in minutes you could own an officially licensed version through Amazon. This is THE accessory for anyone looking to cosplay a certain magizoologist, or just show off some vintage Hufflepuff pride.
