I kind of equate Butterbeer from Harry Potter to Turkish Delight from The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Like the very first time I heard about it, I knew it would be beyond a doubt delicious. Maybe it was the descriptions in the books. Maybe it was the characters’ reactions to it. Whatever the case, I wanted to taste it. And I know I’m not alone in this.
A couple years ago, I had a vendor booth at LeakyCon in Dallas, Texas. Outside the exhibit hall, there was a different vendor stand selling Butterbeer, and I am not kidding you. People were waiting an hour and forty-five minutes to get some! The line stretched down the hall every single day. I tried to buy a couple Butterbeer themed items for my kids and wound up with pretty much no options. Everything was sold out. I’m guessing in your life, you have a Harry Potter fan, and if your fan is anything like me, they would love a Butterbeer themed gift. Don’t be like me and wait until you are somewhere like LeakyCon to look for a Butterbeer item! I’ve scoured the Internet and come up with some of my favorite Butterbeer themed gifts for that Harry Potter fan in your life!
If you’re shopping for someone who loves Butterbeer and loved to cook, then Harry’s Amazing Cookbook: 30 Butterbeer Desserts for Your Next Potter Gathering is a great choice. Inside are 30 dessert recipes that your special someone can try out, from things like Butterbeer ice cream to Butterbeer cupcakes. There is even a recipe for Butterbeer protein smoothies. If I got this cookbook, I would make it a goal to try every single recipe. I might even share.
If your special someone loves fun drinks like root beer and cream soda, then this is your perfect gift. Butterscotch anything is just delicious, and this is going to be a great choice for someone who really wants to try authentic Butterbeer. For an even creamier taste, a scoop of ice cream added into this makes for dessert on the spot.
Candles have a way of warming any room, and the Butterbeer candle is a wonderful choice for your candle lover. Made from soy, the description for this one is perfection: “Granules of pure white sugar crystals are folded into divine swirls of golden butter and sweet, thick cream to create this irresistible magical treat!” It’s the perfect candle to scent the room while that marathon Harry Potter rewatch is going on.
Syrup is yummy, and Butterbeer syrup is even yummier. Sure, you could pour this on pancakes or waffles, but it’s also great in coffee, over ice cream, or in cream soda. It comes in a darling jar with a cork top, making the presentation as sweet as the product.
I am always up for a new T-shirt, and your Butterbeer Harry Potter fan is, too. This great shirt comes in a variety of colors and sizes from small all the way up to 6XL.
