“These are dark times, there is no denying. Our world has perhaps faced no greater threat than it does today.” When former Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour uttered these words in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, none of us could imagine how true they would ring in 2020. But with that darkness, comes the light. 

29 years ago the bushy-bearded, towering half-giant and Keeper of Keys at Hogwarts, Hagrid stormed the shack perched upon a rock and stranded in a wild sea to tell young orphaned Harry with his untidy black hair and his lightning bolt scar, “Yer a wizard, Harry.” 

The heroic Gryffindor celebrates his fortieth birthday today, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate The Boy Who Lived. In honor of the fierce friendships Harry forged, we proudly present to you 31 fan-made Harry Potter gifts. Treat your Wizarding World-loving besties or yourself to some of these magical items crafted by independent artists in the vibrant and diverse Potterhead community!

And, remember to donate to the Fandom Fundraiser, which Leaky is proud to be a part of, and purchase magical trans-themed items. All proceeds go to Lambda Legal, the Marsha P Johnson Institute and the Trans Justice Funding Project! Find out more here.
