If you're a big fan of a certain boy wizard with a distinctive lightning-shaped scar on his forehead – or you know a Muggle who is – then you've come to the right place!

There are so many Harry Potter advent calendars out this year to make the countdown to Christmas a particularly magical one – and we've been busy taking a look at the best ones.

There's something for kids of all ages – including the grown-up ones! You can choose between calendars featuring stationery, figures, Lego and even jewellery from the world of Hogwarts – if only we had the witchcraft and wizardry school's famous Sorting Hat to help us choose! Don't take too long to get yours ordered as they usually sell out fast...

How we chose the best Harry Potter advent calendars 

  • Price: The advent calendars in the list range in price from £17 to £70, so there's something for every budget. 
  • Variety: Whether you're searching for a stationery, beauty or LEGO advent calendar,  you'll find an advent calendar suitable for every Harry Potter fan. 
  • Family-friendly: The advent calendars chosen are suitable for both kids and adults.

Why do we love it? Primark's annual Harry Potter calendar is one of the most covetable for Potterheads - and this year's knight bus-themed one is sure to join past years as being a collector's item, which trades hands for well over the market value on eBay for years to come. There are some available on Amazon this year - but they're selling like hotcakes, so don't wait if you want one!
