Best Overall: High Street Owl Post

High Street Owl Post

High Street Owl Post

Somehow, High Street Owl Post pulls off the difficult feat of cramming everything a Harry Potter fanatic could want in a subscription box, available with everything from flexible package options and reasonable pricing to a variety of quality items, including exclusive merchandise and Hogwarts house-specific offerings.

In addition to sending you anywhere from eight to 12 items in each box, those items are collected to fit into a monthly theme. Past boxes have been centered around Diagon Alley, the Weasleys, and wizard travels. Every box contains wearable items like beanies and tees, as well as household goods such as tea, mugs, and candles. There are also collector’s relics like dragon eggs, wands, potions, and the like. You’re guaranteed to receive at least one house-specific item in each box, and many of the items are custom-made just for High Street, meaning you can’t get them anywhere else.

Choose from several packages, including gift options, one-month subscriptions, or three- and six-month options. One month costs around $45, three months is priced at about $43, and a six-month subscription costs about $42 per month. Shipping ranges from about $8 to $12, depending on your location.

Best 'Official': Bibbidi Boxes Wizard’s Vault

If you’re constantly lamenting the fact that you don’t live near a Disney park because it limits your ability to get your hands on official Harry Potter merch, fret no more, as the kind folks at Bibbidi Boxes have got you covered. The team there sends out boxes for several Disney fan groups—including Marvel and Star Wars—by hand-picking items themselves from Disney parks.

While there is no officially licensed Harry Potter subscription box around, many of the items in the Bibbidi Box can only be bought at Disney parks and resorts, so signing up with them is the most authentic Harry Potter box you can get.

You can specify your preference for items based on gender, house, clothing size, and other fun Harry Potter-inspired qualities like creature companion and favorite spell, which means you can have a lot of fun with customization and you'll receive your own unique box. Some past boxes have featured chocolates and candies, wands, and animal plushies.

There are two levels of membership, priced around $49 and $89. The contents of the boxes always match the retail value of your subscription cost, so the $49 package always contains at least three items with a MSRP of $49, and the same for the $89 box. Shipping is always about $7 per box.

Best for Spellcasters: GeekGear Wizardry Wands

For serious Harry Potter fans who are hard at work at practicing the art of spell casting, a large wand collection is a must—and the Wizardry Wands box from GeekGear lets you skip all the swag like candles, backpacks, and mugs, and get straight to the magic.

Every monthly shipment of the Wizardry Wands box sends you a handcrafted wand in a designated box, along with a card that lets you know the exact specifications of your wand such as its size and material. The wands typically feature decorative carvings and sometimes include an attached charm or gemstone for added flair.

Since this is a simpler subscription, the cost and options are minimal, too: There’s just the one package offered at around $19 per month. The boxes come from the United Kingdom—just like Harry himself—but the shipping is reasonable at only around $6 per box. Basically, for about $25 per month, you could quickly amass a large collection of unique wands, intimidating even the most diehard of Harry Potter fans. Start practicing your wingardium leviosa spell now.

Best for Older Fans: Accio! Box

Accio! Box

Accio! Box

Not all Harry Potter fans are little kids: The books and films have long appealed to tweens, teens, and adults, many of whom want to collect merchandise that doesn’t involve primary colors and cheap plastic construction. We’re not saying the box is inappropriate for kids, but the good folks at Accio! Box generally recommend their boxes for the 18-and-over crowd, since the products are often selected with older collectors in mind.

These are high-quality items from independent creatives, designers, and artists. Think hand-drawn prints and hand-knit caps, not mass-produced figurines and silk-screen tees. Accio! also makes an effort to include only products that are vegan and cruelty-free, so when you receive an edible product like jellybeans or home goods like candles, you can be sure that it was made with sustainability in mind. It’s the perfect choice for fans who are conscious about where and how their merch is made.

Despite featuring a selection of high-class goodies, the Accio! Box is still reasonably priced at around $45 plus $5 for shipping.

Best Budget: GeekGear Wizardry Box

GeekGear Wizardry Wands

Don’t mistake “budget” for “cheap” when considering the Wizardry Box by GeekGear. Although it’s one the least expensive options on this list, it’s definitely not short on quality or variety when it comes to packing up its box every month for Potterheads.

Each package comes with a t-shirt, a GeekGear exclusive print fit for framing, and at least four other cool pieces of swag like bookmarks, wands, bracelets, teas, and key chains. When you order your subscription, you can specify t-shirt sizes for kids, ladies, or unisex, and what house you’ve self-sorted to make sure your monthly tee is customized just for you. The box is cool and authentic, and it makes a subscription possible for any Harry Potter fan—even the ones on a tight budget.

Month-to-month subscriptions start at about $25 per month, plus $6 shipping from the U.K. You can also opt for three-, six-, or 12-month prepaid packages to simplify your expense and reduce cost, as the 12-month option brings the price lower to around $22.

Best Value: Loot Crate Wizarding World

Loot Crate’s option is similar to GeekGear’s, but there are a couple of things that make it stand out. It ships bi-monthly rather than monthly, meaning it could be a better fit if you want to collect merch without drowning in it. The subscription also offers a whole lot of bang for your buck, promising at least $65 worth of items for the low price of around $40.

Inside each Wizarding World box is an assortment of four to six Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts items, like wands, neckties, tees, duffle bags, collectible figures, plush toys, and more. The boxes are all themed, and some past boxes have been designed to feature Potterverse creatures and plants, spells, enchantments, and even a “Hogwarts for the Holidays” theme.

A one-time shipment costs around $40, plus $5 shipping. If you want to sign up for longer subscriptions like six- or 12-month options, note that boxes ship every other month. That means you'll get either three or six different crates, depending on your choice. Those packages break down to around $38 and $36 per crate, respectively.

How We Chose the Best Harry Potter Subscription Boxes

If you’re going to sign up for a Harry Potter subscription box, you’ll want to pick one that’s worth the investment. Here’s how we narrowed down your choices:

  1. Cost. Subscription boxes aren’t usually cheap, but if you regularly spend money on a specific kind of product like fan merchandise, they can save you money over time as long as they aren’t exorbitantly priced. With the exception of the Wizardry Wand box, which is only about $25 per month with shipping, all of the boxes included on this list fall into the $30 to $50 price range. That means most of them could fit comfortably into many HP fans' monthly budgets.
  2. Quality of Items. Anyone can buy Harry Potter tchotchkes and plastic novelty items at your local dollar store. If you’re springing for a subscription box, then you probably want collector’s quality stuff. Many of these boxes contain licensed Disney items, while several others make an effort to include products from small, independently-owned shops. Either way, the boxes contain unique, high-quality items that are hard to find in chain stores.
  3. Available in the U.S. Since Great Britain is Harry Potter’s place of origin, there are plenty of U.K.-based subscription options, but not all are available to ship to the U.S., or else they would drain your wallet with shipping fees. All of the boxes we chose are either produced in the U.S. or ship here for a nominal cost.
