Ravenclaw Gift Guide for Christmas 2022: 10 Gifts for Rad Ravens
From their star-ceilinged common room to achieving top marks, Ravenclaws tend to aim high in all they do. This is a great quality – but it can also make them hard to shop for, since they're usually great at listening and identifying the perfect gift for everyone else in their lives. It's hard to surprise someone who's sharp as a tack with a great gift they never saw coming...

45+ Gifts Proud Hufflepuffs Will Love [Hufflepuff Gift Guide]
Before the Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them films, it’s easy to see why Hufflepuffs felt under-represented in the Wizarding world. Sure, we’d met a handful of Harry’s classmates in Chamber of Secrets and all the girls giggled over that “tall, good-looking” Cedric Diggory (POA, Ch. 9) – but Hufflepuffs felt unloved. That’s evident as there aren’t nearly as many Hufflepuff gift guide options on the internet as there are for all three other houses. But when Fantastic Beasts came out, all of the world’s Hufflepuffs rejoiced: Newt Scamander was a hero for all ‘Puffs (and the rest of us too)! Hufflepuffs have their hero...
