10 HARRY POTTER REMOTE CONTROL WAND

SEE IT NOW: $48.98

While it's not possible to be a wizard in the same way that the Harry Potteseries portrays it, you can at least get fairly close with this remote control wand. This little device works with just about every IR device on the market, including TVs and Blu-Ray players. All you need to do is set up the connections properly, and you can suddenly use a wand to turn on all your devices.

Furthermore, the wand can be programmed to use gesture controls to perform certain actions. That way, it better simulates using a wand from Harry Potter rather than just pushing buttons.

9 MARAUDER'S MAP MUG

SEE IT NOW: $19.99

"I solemnly swear I am up to no good." Those are the words that must be said anytime someone wants to get into the Marauder's Map and get a bird's eye view of Hogwarts at any time. Tap the map with a wand after those words, then it opens up into a wonderful array of people's whereabouts.

What better way to celebrate the beauty of this map than by getting a mug with the same design on it? The mug is black when it's cold, but when exposed to hot liquid, it heats up to reveal the Marauder's Map along with both of its related phrases.

8 COLLECTIBLE QUIDDITCH SET

SEE IT NOW: $17.87

Quidditch is a crucial aspect of the Harry Potter Universe. Many students dream of making the team, hoping to make a difference in their school just like the pro players. When Harry first got on the team, he was shown a briefcase of different objects by Oliver Wood.

If you're a Harry Potter fan who loves Quidditch, then you may want to add this collectible Quidditch set to your arsenal. It essentially recreates the suitcase that Oliver showed to Harry, complete with the Quaffle, Bludgers, and a hidden Snitch, but keep in mind that this is not a real Quidditch set.

7 HARRY POTTER: THE ILLUSTRATED COLLECTION

SEE IT NOW: $63.22

If you're a hardcore Potter fan, odds are that you've read and probably own the entire book series. However, there have since been illustrated versions of the books released that should be in your collection. These are massive copies of the novels designed in big paper with wide illustrations that add a lot of visual flair to the stories.

Right now, only the first three books were given this treatment, but you can purchase all of them in one neat package. These versions of the novels are a great way to introduce younger people to the Wizarding World, not to mention they look great on display.

6 SLYTHERIN & GRYFFINDOR CASUAL CREW SOCKS

SEE IT NOW: $11.99

The fandom of Harry Potter has clearly expanded beyond just the book and the movies. These days, it's not uncommon to see someone walking down the street wearing a shirt or a sweater showing their love for the franchise.

Now, you too can show off your allegiance to one of the houses in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with this slick set of crew socks representing either Slytherin or Gryffindor! Pick a side and head out for a magical day.

5 HARRY POTTER 8-FILM COLLECTION

SEE IT NOW: $49.03 | STREAM THEM NOW: $59.99

The Harry Potter series was brought to life in a total of eight movies. Collecting all of them independently can add up in price quickly, but luckily for fans, there is a box set that includes them all in one reasonably priced package. The set can be purchased in DVD, Blu-Ray, and even 4K variants (just keep in mind how the price varies as you increase the resolution).

Either way you look at it, this is the ultimate movie set for fans of the franchise. It doesn't come with many bells and whistles, though -- it's just the eight films but that should be more than enough.

4 HOGWARTS BATTLE DECK-BUILDING CARD GAME

SEE IT NOW: $39.19

Harry Potter is all about a group of young wizards learning how to properly use their spells to save the world and stop Lord Voldemort, solving mysteries in Hogwarts along the way. The Hogwarts Battle deck-building card game was designed to capture that feeling and help the players know what it's like to be in the shoes of their favorite characters.

Much like other deck builders, Hogwarts battle involves taking the role of a character and increasing their stats by giving them new items and abilities, which come in the form of artifacts and spells. Together, you and your friends must take down dark wizards.

3 WORLD OF HARRY POTTER TRIVIAL PURSUIT

SEE IT NOW: $39.95

If you're a huge fan of Harry Potter and want to show off your knowledge, then investing money in the World of Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit board game is definitely the way to go. It functions like most Trivial Pursuit games, as you travel around the board collecting pies as you answer questions correctly.

The more you know, the better you'll do. Each color on the board signifies a different category of question, so it's important to strategize your moves as you travel to get all of the pies before your opponents do. Each game piece is based on one of the four Hogwarts houses.

2 THE UNOFFICIAL HARRY POTTER COOKBOOK

SEE IT NOW: $11.97 | READ IT NOW: $7.08

The world of Harry Potter is home to some of the weirdest characters and creations in all of pop culture and now thanks to this unofficial Harry Potter cookbook, you can create some of them from the comfort of your own kitchen.

Featuring over 150 recipes such as Pumpkin Pasties, Molly's Meat Pies and Treacle tart, this cookbook will spice up any Harry Potter themed party or movie-watching marathon you may be hosting.

1 WIZARD CHESS SET

SEE IT NOW: $45.00

Wizard's Chess was a key element of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Ron, being the master he was at the game, managed to outsmart one of the rooms guarding the stone. Playing Wizard's Chess always seemed like fun, but we all know it's not possible. Still, this Wizard Chess set is the next best thing.

It's a high-quality chess set, but each piece is modeled after the chess set seen during the climax of The Sorcerer's Stone. The malignant queen and the hunched-over pawn are just some of the iconic pieces you'll appreciate in this set. It's also officially licensed.
