Harry Potter Tervis Tumbler
Alexandra F.: I love Tervis tumblers because they are sturdy, have tight-fitting lids that keep drinks from spilling too easily, and the double wall insulation keeps cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot without dripping condensation everywhere. Plus, even though they are plastic, they don't make water taste like plastic. Add fun designs and you really can't ask for anything more. Oh yeah, they're also dishwasher safe and come with a lifetime guarantee! We have four Harry Potter themed tumblers at our house that get constant use - it's how I get my kids to drink water throughout the day!

Alexandra F.: We love this super soft Harry Potter blanket, and it is everyone's favorite when we are settling in for family movie night or a cozy evening of reading. It is large enough to comfortably cover an adult, or multiple people sitting next to each other, and stretchy and lightweight so it's easy to grab and arrange around yourself (this also makes it a favorite blanket for fort-building). Plus, easy to machine wash and dry! I've seen them for sale at Target and Amazon.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (MinaLima Edition)
Alexandra F.: This relatively new edition of the Harry Potter books is absolutely dazzling, with captivating illustrations and interactive features like lift-the-flap pictures and a fold-out map of Diagon Alley to keep fans of all ages totally immersed in their favorite story!
