I could sure use the help around the house and my house elf could rescue me from all kinds of awful situations! Avatar Imagetheburrowmom says: As a mother, with a house full of children, I would love to have any of the gadgets that Molly Weasley had to help run a busy household. A "free" house elf, would also be a welcome addition. A fireplace attached to the Floo Network would also help us get to and from places much faster.

It would make traveling so much easier, just think; no more having to check bags at the airport and only being allowed one carry-on!

Yes, thats would be the perfect.magical gift for me! :)Avatar Imagetaurnguard says: I would want the Sorting Hat so everyone would TRULY know in which house they belong.

That item is so cool...and, oh, the fun I could have ;)Avatar Imagekatertonks says: I would ideally like a letter to hogwarts but after that a portkey would be wonderful as I commute between two cities.Avatar ImageDeliaDee says: I want a Flying Ford Anglia. Now that's a car that I could actually drive! :)Avatar ImageGinnyPotter811 says: I would love to have the invisibility cloak! It would be fun to be able to disappear when you need to and it's the best of the hallows!Avatar ImageRinny says: That's a tough question! I'm going to have to go with a broom, I think. Firebolt?! *fingerscrossed* but even the most recent cleansweep would be exciting... because I could FLY!Avatar ImageMissMarauder says: I would want a Comet 260! (The Firebolt is too mainstream lol)Avatar Imageluckylau85 says: It's so hard to choose, but I'll go with the Pensieve. Sometimes I think that's just what I need to filter through all my thoughts, or to clearly remember a particularly awesome day. :)Avatar Imagefawkes4444 says: The pensive. The ability to store and share memories would be a wonderful giftAvatar Imagepotterhead731 says: I would love to have the wizard chess set.

The set is so beautiful and i would love to play against my friends and family!Avatar ImageNoxMidnight says: Definitely a time-turner!

Nothing can beat that,Avatar ImageHermioNAY says: I want a wand. Everything else is secondary. Avatar ImageHermioNAY says: I want a wand. Everything else is secondary.

I have poor memory, so it would be extremely helpful for me!Avatar ImageSirius_Craic says: Invisiblity cloak all the way. Or Hogwarts itself :)Avatar Imagebeewell says: I think I would like to have the set of mirrors that belonged to Sirius. They were amazing and it was so sad that Harry didn't open that gift sooner so he could have talked with Sirius easier than using the fire. I do remember that Sirius said he and James used the mirrors all the time when in detention.Avatar ImageDirectorbeme says: Firebolt all the way! What more could I want other than the gift of flight?Avatar ImageMyNameIsFredWeasley says: I'd want a hippogriff. I've always wanted some sort of thing that would let me fly and although its not me who's actually doing the flying I'm sure it would be the same great feeling. Traveling to me is a great joy and it would be fun to fly with a hippogriff.I would not fly with the hippogriff and not let anyone else try it though, I really would want my friends and family to see the excitement in it.Avatar Imageleahjeanne says: hmm I guess I would want a new broom, or a new beaters bat!Avatar ImageAllieRM says: If I could have any gift from Harry Potter, I think I'd want a Wand and the Magical abilities you need to use one. Or, just to be able to be a student at Hogwarts would be fun.Avatar ImageDolce says: I'm tempted to say the Invisibility Cloak because it was so good to the trio for so many years. But I think I'd rather have a pensive. It would be so cool to be able to sort through memories and see things clearly in hindsight.Avatar Imagemaf779 says: I rhink a trunk like Moody's, with all the extra compartments, would be fun and functional!Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Can't be bothered entering because I know I won't win :DAvatar Imagequenivere says: I would like to have the ability to do magic and a wand with which to do it!Avatar ImagexxSnapeLoverxx says: I think I would want a Snape of my very own. Alive, of course.Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: I would love to have a lifetime supply of Floo Powder. That way I could visit my family more often and send my kids to their daily activities without driving them everywhere.Avatar Imageheaddogg says: i would love to have a remembrall, so i would know when i'm forgetting something! but like neville, i'm not sure if i would be able to remember what i've forgotten!Avatar Imagedeannalw says: want: Sneakoscope. I don't like untrustworthy people. xoxoxoAvatar Imagejchpfan says: Although there are many magical items I would love to get as a gift this Christmas, the one I think I need the most is a Remembrall. I am so forgetful these days I think a Remembrall to let me know when I've forgotten something would come in very handy. That's of course if I can remember what it is that I've forgotten LOL. Avatar Imageredharryeragongeek says: Since I'm a muggle a wand wouldn't do much good so my choice is probably a firebolt Avatar Imagejkella says: A Pensieve! Who wouldn't love to relive all their favorite moments!Avatar Imagebronzehallow28 says: I can't pick just one! Haha. I would have to pick either an owl, a wand, or a firebolt.Avatar ImageProfessorCharms says: A wizard's chess set and a Nimbus 2000 broom!Avatar ImageCatherine says: If I lived in Harry's wonderful world I would love to have a bottle of Felix Felicis to give to a friend who needs lots of luck right now!!!Avatar Image8NiSci8 says: Besides the obvious choices of having magical abilities/an acceptance letter to Hogwarts/a functioning wand, I would want my own Phoenix. He'd be able to heal me and my loved ones if we were injured, fly us around, and sing awesome songs. =) Avatar ImageSeacoastmuggle says: I would absolutely love a membership card to the Hogwarts Library! Could you even imagine...Avatar ImageRollivander says: I would do anything for a magic wand. Maple and dragonheartstring 11 1/2". The only problem is I live in Chanda.

I guess I'm going to have to settle for HPA's teeshirts and fair-trade chocolate frogs instead.Avatar ImageMommadisneybrat says: It would definitely have to be either a wand or house elf, a liberated one of course, although access to Harry's Gringots account would be great too!!!Avatar ImageWitTharPtritA says: In my heart I've always wanted my own letter to Hogwarts :D Just ya....wowAvatar ImageGrahd says: I know the child in me would want lot. However a wand would be the best.Avatar ImageLoader Lady says: A broomstick of course.Avatar ImageAllieRM says: A bottle of real Butterbear, just to see how it tastes. then maybe some more, in case its as good as it sounds.
