Look at those dumb faces.

2. But Reddit user iShootWithACamera has pointed out that every Christmas gift we see Harry receive from his Muggle relatives can be directly related to one of the three Deathly Hallows.

3. The 50-pence piece he gets for Christmas in his first year represents the Resurrection Stone.

4. The toothpick that Harry got in his second year represents the Elder Wand.

5. And the thoughtful gift of a single tissue, which Harry received in his fourth year, represents the Invisibility Cloak.
