My Harry Potter Gift Guide last year confirmed it: you guys love all things Potter just as much as I do, so this year I’m bringing a special Hogwarts-inspired edition of Harry Potter Back to School Ideas!
Harry Potter School Supplies
Ella and her friends are deep into Harry Potter mode and I’m ALL FOR IT. I’ve taken them to local Harry Potter festivals, hosted Harry Potter movie nights, and of course, have been reading through the series with Ella.
It’ll be a couple years until she receives her letter, so until then, I’ll just set her up with some fun Harry Potter school supplies for her muggle school.
For this round-up, I tried to do a mix of store-bought and DIY options, because that’s my personal preference. I’m more likely to do something like DIY wand pencils with my daughter and then buy the backpack, lunch tote and other school supplies.
Some of the store-bought options are from artisans on Etsy and others are from BoxLunch, a really cool, well-curated specialty retailer that donates a meal to a person in need for every $10 in sales. They have so many cute licensed products (and non-licensed) and they are extremely well-priced, especially considering their charitable model.
To start your back to school shopping, you need to pick your wand: a wand pen is essential – Ella has two and they just add a bit of magic to whatever she is working on. I think my next purchase will be these cute wand pencil crayons.
I hope you find some great options here and let me know if you come across something really fun that I don’t have listed!
