Gift Guide: Wizards and Witches
Many blogs are embracing the holiday shopping season and post some version of a gift guide, suggesting gifts by price or by person (mother, brother, delivery man, preschool teacher). While they are all fine and festive, I feel that they are lacking. What about those of us who have a less than traditional friend and family make up? Like a few supernatural acquaintances? An aunt who talks more to lizards than people? Well, I’m here to tell you that you are not alone and you don’t have to go through another holiday season cringing as your cowboy uncle opens yet another lasso from you.
Let’s start with gifts for that friend who believes they are a wizard or witch. When I was growing up all we had were the Harry Potter books, now there are movies, theme parks, online communities, and products galore. For some it’s all too easy to get wrapped up in that world of magic and live out the fantasy of a better life starting on Platform 9 and 3/4. While the rest of us might be slightly more grounded in reality, that doesn’t mean we can’t pick out an entrancing magical gift. (Luna stop reading now, or all my surprises will be ruined!)
Magic Wand Remote Control ($89.95): It’s pretty easy to see why this is awesome. For a mere 90 bills, you can pretend like you are in transfiguration class every time you change the channel.
Harry Potter Personalized Acceptance Letter Chromaluxe Panel ($27.96 for 8″x10″): I’m not going to act like I know what chromaluxe is, but it’s a sure thing that the recipient of this letter will be so thrilled they might start buying school supplies on Diagon Alley.
Deluminator ($45.00): For those non-believers, a deluminator is a one of a kind magical object that can put out nuisance lights with a single click.
The Clapper ($33.99): For those non-believers, the clapper is a one of a kind magical object that can turn on and off lights with the clap of your hands. Pairs well with deluminator (described above).
