Hallmark is selling the most magical Harry Potter Christmas tree topper shaped like Hogwarts

You’d be ‘Riddikulus’ not to top your tree with it this Christmas

Okay, I’ll rip the plaster off straight away.

I’m not the biggest fan of Harry Potter. I’ve read the books, I’ve watched the films, but if I’m being honest, I was always more of a Buffy boy.

Okay, now I’ll rip the other plaster off.

I am, however – and always have been – the biggest fan of Christmas tat. If I had the money and wasn’t chronically lazy, this would one hundred percent be my house every year.

House Covered In Christmas Lights and Tat

Tinsel. Dancing Santas. Plastic reindeer. Snow globes. Fake snow. Ghastly Christmas jumpers that need charging overnight. I’m out and proud about it all. I love it. And Poundland loves me.

I might not be the biggest Harry Potter fan, but this Hogwarts tree topper seriously ticks my tacky boxes (that sounds a bit dirty, doesn’t it?) and then some.

Just look at it.

Hallmark are selling a Harry Potter tree topper

Hallmark describes Harry Potter™ Collection Hogwarts™ Castle Musical Tree Topper With Light on their website, where it’s priced at $119.99 (f*ck!).

“This Christmas tree topper that features the wondrous castle. Plug it into the included power adapter for constant illumination, then press the button—either on the included Hogwarts crest remote control or on the back of the tree topper—to start a sound and light show scene featuring music from ‘Hedwig’s Theme’.”

Keenos can add three ‘Harry Potter Storytellers’ ornaments of Harry, Ron and Hermione – to complete their festive scene… for $29.99 each.

Side note, look how much ‘Wingardium Levio–sass” Hermione is serving? I’m living for it.

Have a Harry Potter Christmas… if you can afford it

We recently reported that LEGO were releasing a Harry Potter-themed advent calendar.

Harry Potter LEGO advent calendar

With 24 doors to open, it features more than 300 pieces, including all your favourite characters as minifigures dressed up in Christmas outfits.

The seven minifigures include Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Albus Dumbledore, Professor Flitwick and the Hogwarts architect. Even a little Hedwig figure is hiding behind one of the doors. Here’s hoping Dumbledore will be at number 10 (politics is too crazy right now, I couldn’t resist)!

You’ll also find models of iconic Hogwarts features such as a mini Hogwarts Express, a buildable fireplace filled with decorations, the Grand Hall table with accessories, and a statue with all four house crests.

The calendar will set you back £24.99 at the LEGO StoreAmazon, and John Lewis.

Well, it’s safe to say that JK Rowling isn’t shopping at Poundland.

Personally, this all far too pricy to make my annual tat list. I’ll be here if you need me.
