But I’ll wrap up the introduction here and get right to that list of great last minute gifts for Slytherins that brought you here today! And as always, thanks for the click, and thank you so much for reading!!!
While just about everybody and their mother is familiar with the story told in the main seven Harry Potter books (as well as the 8 movies based off the books) but there is a lot more of the wizarding world to love that you miss out on if you only stick to the main series. J.K. Rowling herself has written three additional pieces that expand the lore of Harry Potter. She wrote a play in two parts called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. And in the play one of Harry’s sons gets sorted into Slytherin house during his first year while still having to try to live up to his fathers incredible legacy.
And in addition to the play J.K. has also written two other books set in the wizarding world. The first book is called Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them and is meant to be styled like a textbook at Hogwarts that goes into detail about all sorts of different magical creatures that inhabit the world. And on top of that J.K. Rowling has also written The Tales of Beedle the Bard that greatly expands on the legend of the Peverell brothers and how they came to be in possession of the deathly hallows. Which really expands the lore in a nice way. And in addition to those there is also a book that J.K. didn’t write, but that is still considered part of the official lore called Quidditch Through the Ages that takes a look at the history of the wizarding world's most famous sport!
If you’re looking to get them a gift that is really going to knock their socks off then get them Hogwarts Legacy. This is a brand new action role-playing game set in the wizarding world developed by Avalanche Software. And you can get it for any of the modern systems. SO whether your Slytherin friend plays PC, Xbox, Playstation, or Nintendo Switch they will be able to fully immerse themselves in this game. And while the game is set in the 1800s at the Hogwarts school grounds, the character you create holds the key to a secret that could rip the wizarding world apart. So between the fantastic premise, the stellar graphics, and the fine tuned gameplay I am sure your Slytherin friend would love to receive Hogwarts Legacy as a last minute gift. Even if it is at the last minute, it might very well be the best gift they get!
GiftYa Recommends: Round out the gift with an Xbox Live gift card, Playstation gift card, or Nintendo eShop gift card so that your favorite Slytherin can pick up some other games on their wish list or indulge in some DLC!
Slytherins more than most of us have to deal with heightened emotions and flaring tempers. So if this sounds like the Slytherin you know then get them a gift card to Calm and help set their mind at ease. Calm is a subscription service/app that provides all kinds of specialized relaxation features. It has everything from white noise and nature sounds to guided meditations and noise to help you fall asleep. Which can make a really nice last minute gift for a hot blooded Slytherin!
Target is one of the nation’s most popular retail chains with nearly 2,000 locations so hopefully there is one near you because they have an enormous selection to choose a last minute gift from. They have everything from clothes and shoes to groceries and home electronics so I am sure you will be able to find something great here. You could get your friend one of the Harry Potter books, one of the movies on Blu-Ray or 4K UHD, or even pick them up a copy of Hogwarts Legacy while you’re there. Target has a little bit of everything so you should have plenty to choose from!
The nice thing about Legos is that they can be enjoyed by people of any age. And Lego makes sure of that by offering incredibly basic sets meant for children to more complicated sets with thousands of pieces that are meant for teens and adults. So no matter what age your Slytherin is, I am sure you will be able to find a great Lego set for them. YOu can get everything from Hedwig the owl and Dobby the house elf to a full replica of Hogwarts Castle and even a set specifically designed to be the Slytherin common room!
If you have a little bit of time to wait on the shipping then Etsy can be a great place to get a last minute gift for a Slytherin. There are thousands of unique handcrafted Harry Potter inspired gifts that you can choose from. In fact, even if you don’t have the time to wait for the shipping, this one might still be worth it. You can find such incredible Harry Potter merch here that I bet your friend won’t even mind that their gift is a little teensy bit late when they unwrap it and behold it in all its glory!
Amazon has over 12 million different items for sale and you can even get overnight or 2-day shipping on most of their items. Which can make them a great place to get a gift at the last minute. And with over 12 million different items for sale, I am sure you will be able to find something your Slytherin friend will love. Just go to AMazon and search “Harry Potter” and you’ll be amazed how much great stuff pops up!
Anybody who is a fan of the Harry Potter books or movies is going to be familiar with quidditch. If you don’t know, it’s the sport that wizards play on flying broomsticks in the books. WHich might sound a little hokey, but it’s honestly much cooler than it sounds. I even had a great quidditch video game on my computer way back in the day.
Given the immense popularity of quidditch you can get your Slytherin friend a collectible set that has all three of the balls used in the game. There’s a quaffle, two bludgers, and of course, the golden snitch. And the set featured in the photo above even comes with an illustrated book on how to play quidditch!
If nothing else on the list seemed like the right gift for your Slytherin friend and you are about to just throw your hands up, hold up for one more suggestion. If you need a last minute gift for your Slytherin friend you could send them one of these customizable Visa gift cards. And since they’re Visa they are accepted everywhere so your friend can use them to shop at small independent businesses or online at a giant corporations website.
What really makes these a great last minute gift for a Slytherin is the fact that they are totally customizable. So you can pick out a great Slytherin inspired photo to make the image on the front of the card. And since you get to send along a personalized message with the card you could pick out a really great Salazar Slytherin quote to send with it. And then you have a quick and convenient last minute gift that any Slytherin will absolutely love!
I hope something on the list today works perfectly for the Slytherin in your life. But I can only get so many suggestions in on an article this length. So I tried to get some suggestions on the list that I think each and every Slytherin out there will enjoy, as well as some more creative options in case you are really trying to blow them away!
