Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last decade or so, the international mania for J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels has not escaped your notice. (In fact, if you’re between the ages of 18 and 30, the seven books were probably a major part of your childhood/adolescence.) Here at Haute Talk we’re rejoicing over the news that Rowling has decided to adapt ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ for Warner Brothers – here’s five Etsy goods which celebrate the boy who lived.

 

Piece #1: Gryffindor 101

Harry Potter-Etsy Goods Inspired by The Boy Who Lived-Gold and Maroon Gryffindor Scarf

Full disclosure: I may be a Muggle, but had I received my letter and traveled to Hogwarts, I’d’ve been sorted in Gryffindor. Now that we’re clear on that, the most essential item for any member of this bravest house is the deep maroon and gold scarf. In the films these are worn as symbols of house pride at Quidditch games. And whether you’re a Squib or destined for greatness (or somewhere in between), you need to represent.

Piece #2: How Is She Doing That?!

Harry Potter-Etsy Goods Inspired by The Boy Who Lived-Prizoner of Azkaban Time-Turner

In the third book – “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” – overachiever Hermione Granger signs up for an impossible class load. While her stress levels reach historic heights, everyone she knows is confounded by her ability to seemingly attend two classes at once. Hermione’s secret? The Time-Turner, a device regulated by the Ministry of Magic, which permits our in-house (as it were) nerd to turn back time so she can attend classes which are held simultaneously. This beautiful replica of Hermione’s necklace is the perfect gift for similarly intelligent and overworked Harry Potter fan.

  • Necklace chain is 20 inches long
  • Medallion is 1.5 inches long & wide

Piece #3: Sippin’ on Private Stock (of Polyjuice Potion)

Harry Potter-Etsy Goods Inspired by The Boy Who Lived-Polyjuice Potion Recipe Flask

During book two – “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” – our trio attempt to investigate the dark magic striking Muggle students inside the school. But to do so they must slip into the Slytherin commons undetected. Given the animosity between the two houses, Hermione cooks up a batch of the Polyjuice Potion, which allows a person to assume the form of another. The potion is extremely complex (and despite her best effort, Hermione’s experiment doesn’t go as planned), but relax: this flask, engraved with the Polyjuice Potion recipe, need only hold a potent beverage of your choice.

  • Handmade
  • Size: holds 8 fluid ounces
  • Material: stainless steel
  • Made to order

Piece #4: The One and Only Skiving Snackbox

Harry Potter-Etsy Goods Inspired by The Boy Who Lived-Fred and George Weasley's Skiving Snackbox

Perennial pranksters Fred and George Weasley’s range of joke goods, includes the wildly successful ‘Skiving Snackbox.’ By the twins’ own description: “A range of sweets to make you ill…not seriously ill…just ill enough to get you out of trouble!” In no time at all Hogwarts students, who’ve downed the various pastilles, nougats, and fudge, are complaining of nausea, headaches, fever, and nosebleeds, permitting them to skip class and avoid homework. (Argus Filch, Hogwarts mean, nasty caretaker, institutes a blanket ban on any Weasley goods.) This clay rendering of the snackbox is not only adorable, but frighteningly accurate. But no matter how tempted you are to leave work early, or avoid writing a paper, don’t eat anything in this box!

Details

  • Handmade
  • Materials: paper, glue, ink, polymer clay, glaze, microbeads, glitter

Piece #5: Platform Nine and Three-Quarters

Harry Potter-Etsy Goods Inspired by The Boy Who Lived-Platform 9 and 3 Quarters Wall Print

All Harry Potter fans long to find this magical and hidden train platform. Located between platforms nine and ten at King’s Cross in London, all Hogwarts-bound students must run toward a seemingly solid brick wall, which will vanish upon contact. On the other side is a handsome steam engine which ferries our heroes (and villains) to their school. Due to the popularity of the books, King’s Cross has hung a 9 ¾ sign inside the station. If you can’t make it to London (or Hogwarts, for that matter), you can always just hang this simple print on your wall – it requires no explanation.

  • Handmade
  • Materials: print, paper, ink
