Ask a Harry Potter fan what house they belong to, and you’re guaranteed an animated conversation. Each House has its own unique qualities, colors, and are each known for a particular trait: Gryffindor is known for bravery, Hufflepuff is known for loyalty, Ravenclaw is known for intelligence, and Slytherin is known for shrewdness.
Today we’ve decided to take a new approach towards our normal merch list, and go with items we think encapsulate the vibes of each House, making them fabulous gift ideas or even additions to your own wishlist!
The Gryffindor House is known for bravery, recklessness, ambition, and the desire to protect others. Its House emblem is the lion, and its colors are scarlet and gold. If you tend to rush into situations without thinking, are adventure seeking, and find yourself attracted to novel experiences, this might be the House for you!
We adore these Hogwarts House tankards we found, especially the Gryffindor version pictured above! Something about the lion and the scarlet and gold really just go great on a tankard, but if you’re not a Gryffindor, be sure to check the website for the others.
We love DIY gifts, because it’s not only the gifted item, but the experience of creation as well. This classic Gryffindor-themed scarf kit includes everything you need to make your scarf as well as a bonus House crest patch!
Gryffindor Face Mask
Show your House pride to everyone with these Gryffindor face masks! Featuring the House colors and motifs, these masks are a stylish way to keep yourself and others safe and healthy.
We love the minimalist design of these shirts! You can find all four Houses represented in the link above, so it’s easy to pick your favorite. It’s a lovely and subtle way to express your love of your Hogwarts’ House.
A little off the beaten path, we love how slick this icon set is, and how well it coordinates with the Gryffindor scarlet and gold. The style is a beautiful balance of homespun and professional, and is a truly unique way to show your House colors.
The Hufflepuff House is known for loyalty, teamwork, and comfort. Its House emblem is the badger, and its colors are black and yellow. If you tend to find yourself playing peacemaker, love group projects, and have a strong connection to nature, this might be the House for you!
Niffler Plush Mini Backpack
While the badger is the official House mascot, the Hufflepuff connection to animals and nature leads us to begin our list with this adorable Niffler cosplay mini backpack. Inside, you’ll find a gold coin print featuring a Niffler motif, the treasure this little fellow is hoarding.
With a title like “Emergency Snack Storage”, this Hufflepuff handbag features the House crest, traits, and colors (the bag is more yellow than the image does justice) in a compact yet classy design. You don’t HAVE to tell people it’s for snack storage, but your fellow badgers might sniff you out!
Speaking of badgers, the House mascot, we couldn’t pass up this oh-so-snuggly cushion and plush set. While badgers are not generally known for being cute and cuddly, this one definitely fits the bill! The cushion also unzips so you can tuck your little plush friend inside… or any snacks you might be trying to hide from prying eyes.
Now this is a GIFT. Imagine getting one of these magical boxes in the mail, welcoming you to your new Hogwarts’ House. Better yet, make it a reality and order one! Be sure to get the Headmaster edition to get all of the treats pictured here, and make note that this gift can be personalized for the recipient.
These sweet, adorable baby Nifflers are in need of a home with a good Huflepuff; will that be you? We love all of the little features, like the Niffler with his tongue out and the paws pressing on the fur.
Sometimes you really need that little something extra to set the perfect mood. This Hufflepuff Common Room candle does exactly that! The cozy scent of peaches will take you right to the overstuffed chairs and simple comfort afforded by the House’s main lounge area.
The Ravenclaw House is known for intelligence, wit, creativity, and the desire to see what makes things tick. Its House emblem is the eagle, and its colors are blue and bronze. If you love learning, working on experiments, solving puzzles, and testing new ideas, this might be the house for you!
Ravenclaw Glass Picture
This fantastic glass wall art is the perfect way to kick off the Ravenclaw section of our list! The balance between the arcane and scientific is a perfect reflection of the Ravenclaw House, which prides itself on knowledge of all sorts. On top of that, it’s a lovely piece of art.
The art of letter writing may be going by the wayside, but with this clever wax stamp kit you’ll find it much more entrancing. The metal stamper impresses a design of the House crest onto your melted wax, and can be used for regular mail or special invitations.
Cozy and understated, this House Ravenclaw inspired t-shirt features the primary traits of the House in alternating fonts. It’s not the most blatantly obvious fandom merchandise, but it is beautiful and comfortable, and those in the know will know.
Creative and intelligent, a Ravenclaw is definitely the right audience to pick up a hobby like cross stitching! This pattern is beautifully detailed, and makes a great gift to those looking for experiences over stuff.
Speaking of Diagon Alley, and gifting experiences over stuff, this colorful 3D puzzle manages to fit both as an experience AND an item to keep! Get this fabulous puzzle and you have a blast putting it together and then enjoy the finished model for years to come.
The Slytherin House is known for shrewdness, leadership, social intelligence, and cunning. Its House emblem is the snake, and its colors are green and silver. If you tend to consider every angle before acting, prioritize the “big picture”, value resourcefulness, and have a dry or warped sense of humor, this might be the House for you!
Dark and brooding, yet also comfy and cozy! This robe looks classy enough for any Slytherin concerned about their appearance, but is still comfortable for everyday wear.
This handmade bracelet is a charming way to show your pride in being a Slytherin! While you can get a bracelet made for any House, we especially enjoy the design of this one! The green goes so well with the braided leather, and we love the snake in the House crest motif.
The Deathly Hallows represent the ability to triumph over Death, and who but a Slytherin would be so ambitious? These bookends are sturdy and practical, but also look lovely in a minimalist way. We think they suit a Slytherin-style study extremely well!
Last but mostly certainly not least is this phenomenal music box! Made of pewter and porcelain, when the lid is lifted the box plays a rendition of Hedwig’s theme. It’s small enough to fit in your hand, yet the attention to detail even in miniature is unmistakable. With the good taste of a Slytherin, we’re sure this classy gift will delight even the most stoic snake!
We hope you’ve enjoyed our take on the Hogwarts Houses! While it’s a little bit different from some of the lists you might see of Harry Potter merchandise, we had a ton of fun writing it. Let us know if you’d like to see more articles like this in the future. Until next time!
