A few weeks ago Nathan from Magic Alley – a UK-based online shop that sells official Harry Potter merchandise – got in touch to ask whether I’d like to review some of the magical products they sell. They sell everything from Butterbeer and Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans to scarves and ties. I visited the Harry Potter Studio Tour back in December for Hogwarts in the Snow and coveted a few goodies from the gift shop but it being Christmas, I couldn’t really justify buying fun things for myself. So thank you, Nathan! I picked out a gorgeous Dobby the House Elf Wrist Watch (£24,85, currently £17.95 in the sale) and a Golden Snitch Necklace (£9.95).
I’m super happy with both the necklace and watch! I own a bunch of Ravenclaw stuff, but I wanted something that was pretty/delicate and that I could wear all the time. Let’s look at them a little closer…
I adored this watch when I saw it in the gift shop in December. They had a few others (e.g. Deathly Hallows), but I loved this bright one featuring a golden Dobby. I like that it’s not very obvious that it’s a Harry Potter watch, only to me when I check the time! I was worried the strap would wear away quickly but so far, so good.
I’ve also been enjoying wearing the Golden Snitch necklace and have had a lot of compliments from fellow Potter fans! It’s much nicer than I thought it would be for less than a tenner. I’m not one for jewellery usually but I have been wearing a pendants recently and this is a lovely one to add to my small collection.
I love my new Harry Potter goodies and they’ll be getting a lot of use. Browse Magic Alley for more magical merch!
