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...
