    22 Magical Hogwarts Supplies You Can Actually Buy IRL

    No need to travel to Diagon Alley.

    1. First off, books: a copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (required for first years).

    2. A copy of Quidditch Through the Ages, to help you understand the complex history of the Wronski Feint.

    3. A magic wand, because how do you plan on defeating the forces of evil without a good wand?

    4. Various Potions ingredients that you don’t even have to steal from Snape’s private stores.

    5. A cauldron-mug, so you can brew your draughts.

    6. A bit of ready-made Felix Felicis since it’s very difficult to make, and disastrous to get wrong.

    7. A handsome collectible Quidditch set containing one Quaffle, two Bludgers, and one Golden Snitch.

    8. A pointed hat for day wear.

    9. A Hogwarts stationary set straight from Flourish and Blotts.

    10. A scarf that will give your winter coat a pop of house pride.

    11. A box of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, for study breaks.

    12. A box of exploding bonbons might be a safer choice for covert candy-eating...

    13. You should probably go for a big gift box of Honeydukes’ finest, just to be safe.

    14. A trunk to store all your Hogwarts supplies.

    15. A Quidditch broomstick. (Remember: first years are not allowed their own broomsticks.) (Unless, of course, you’re Harry Potter.)

    16. A pair of top-of-the-line Quidditch goggles, so you'll never miss a Snitch.

    17. An antique-style feather quill for all your homework and owl-post writing.

    18. A crystal ball, so your Divination professor can reveal your dark future to the whole class during one of her trance states.

    19. A pair of Spectrespecs to get your inevitable friendship with Luna Lovegood off on the right foot.

    20. A silk tie that will really ~tie~ your Hogwarts uniform together.

    21. A wizard chess set, to keep your mind as sharp as your king's sword.

    22. A replica of the Hogwarts Sorting Hat, so you can learn where your true loyalties should lie.

    Of course, the real magic is when you manage to make it to class on time.
