I am a huge Harry Potter fan! However, I remember having to wait for the next book to come out through the years.
My love for it began when my neighbor told my mom these were good books for kids. After that, I was hooked and loved the movies too.
If you’re a muggle who loves Harry Potter like me, then why not show it off with some nice Harry Potter-inspired blankets? Whether it’s a gift for yourself or another, picking out the right option might feel tricky.
That’s why I’ve created this guide! Read on for the best Harry Potter blanket ideas for even the biggest Potter fanatic today.
Bottom Line Up Front
There are various Harry Potter blankets to choose from! Some of them I’d honestly love on a t-shirt, too (some might give you that option, by the way).
After going through various options, I’ve narrowed it down to my favorite. But, wow, I have to pick the Harry Potter Magic Montage Throw Blanket Silk Touch. Remember that it’s a silk touch (it’s 100% polyester, though).
It’s soft to the touch, and the design is beautiful. I can’t get over the coloring and features of this blanket.

Tips for the Reader
While going through this list, it’s a good idea to write down the names of your favorite choices. Whether that’s through your computer or a pen and paper is up to you.
If this is a gift, it’s a good idea to find out what house your friend/family likes most in the franchise. Be sure that they don’t already have what you’re considering either!
Through the selection process, I’m thinking about each blanket’s different designs and detail. As a Harry Potter enthusiast, I’m thinking about what other Harry Potter fans might like.
Plus, I’m trying to think of one for each house. If you’re not partial to a house, then there are other choices as well!
