Anyone who’s a fan of the Harry Potter franchise is often loud about it, even in the face of J.K. Rowling’s recent controversies. Many fans have taken the story into their own hands to create their own stories and ideas that carry on the legacy of Harry Potter. And while doing so, they often take on the characteristics of their house. So, it’s easy to get a gift for someone who knows what they like and who they are within the world of Harry Potter.
While some people have stuck to the houses they were first sorted into on Pottermore, others have taken it upon themselves to choose their own Harry Potter house. And as the Sorting Hat has often told us, we have the power to choose which house we belong in. So, we’ve compiled a list of the 17 best gifts to get for Harry Potter fans in 2022, divided by which house they’re in.
Best gifts for Ravenclaws
The Sorting Hat’s song tells us about what makes a Ravenclaw: “Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw / If you've a ready mind / Where those of wit and learning / Will always find their kind.” Ravenclaws typically possess wisdom, intellectual ability, and creativity, and are often also very competitive.

Best gifts for Hufflepuffs:
Hufflepuffs don’t have quite as many cut and dry stereotypes as Ravenclaws. “You might belong in Hufflepuff,” the Sorting Hat says. “Where they are just and loyal, those patient Hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil.” Hufflepuffs are valued for their trustworthiness, loyalty, and work ethic, and are often associated with plants and cooking, as well as for being the best friends possible.

Best gifts for Slytherins:
People think of Slytherins as the villains, but they aren't all bad guys. In fact, Severus Snape is one of the most passionate and loving characters in the story. The Sorting Hat tells us, “Or perhaps in Slytherin, you'll make your real friends, those cunning folk use any means, to achieve their ends.” They’re known for cunning and ambition, as well as their affinity for potions and passion for the dark arts.

Gryffindors may be the most popular house, but that just means that they’re unique in their own ways. According to the books, Gryffindor is described, “Where dwell the brave at heart, their daring, nerve, and chivalry set Gryffindors apart.” Often frontrunners in Quidditch and in the House Cup, Gryffindors are known for their courage, determination, and daring, so they’re typically pretty adventurous.
