After the success of some Hogwarts-inspired pieces previously, Penneys has launched a new Harry Potter range – and we love it! As always, Penneys (or Primark if you’re in the UK) has absolutely come up trumps. With everything from cushions and bed linen to Christmas decorations and clothes, you (and the kids) can get set for some serious Hogwarts style.

Many of the items in the new Harry Potter range hit stores this month, with more coming in September and October. Start checking your local store now, as these won’t last long (remember the drama with the Beauty & the Beast Chip purse…?).

Get Cosy with Hogwarts Style
What house would the Sorting Hat have put you in? Are you a Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherin or Gryffindor at heart? Pick your favourite Hogwarts house and decorate accordingly with house-inspired cushions (€5/£4 each) and co-ordinating throw blankets (€8/£6 each). There’s also a white Hedgwig-shaped cushion (€8/£6) to cuddle up with.
These would be perfect for kids’ rooms, and are a really quick and easy way to theme the bedroom decor.
Enchanting Harry Potter Style
Deck yourself out from head to toe! There are loads of fun bits in the Harry Potter range to choose from, including hoodies and sweatshirts, t-shirts, pyjamas, onesies and dressing gowns designed to look like Hogwarts robes or printed with the Marauder’s Map. If kitting yourself out for bed isn’t enough, you can also get themed bed linen!
Don’t forget to accessorise – take your pick from a Hermione’s fantastic time turner necklace, pendant chokers, earrings, pin badges, slippers, socks, trainers and lots more.
Clockwise from top left: burgundy velour glasses sweatshirt (€12/£10), Hufflepuff makeup bag, available in each house colour (€5/£4), kids pyjamas (€11/£8), time turner pendant necklace (€4/£3), pack of 5 Harry Potter socks (€8/£6), Hufflepuff hoodie, available in each house colour (€14/£12); quidditch pyjama vest top (€6/£4.50); boot trainer (€14/£12); lace up pumps (€11/£8).

Complete the look in the kitchen with hanging message chalkboards (€5/£4 each), a Hogwarts-design pin board (€10/£8), and a set of four drinks coasters representing each of the Hogwarts houses (€5/£4).

Choose from a single Hogwarts crest decoration (€6/£5), a set of four different coloured house baubles (€5/£4), or a festive gold bauble decoration (€6/£5).
Can your Christmas tree compete with the grandeur and wonders of Hogwarts?
Calling All Future Wizards!
We love this three-pack of bandana-style bibs (€4/£3) in neutral colours, while the matching baby vests (€7/£5) and Future Wizard babygrow and hat set (€8/£6.50) would make great gifts for a new bundle.

If You Only Buy One Thing…
I don’t know about you, but I read the Harry Potter series and hoped (in vain, clearly) that a magical Hogwarts letter might appear. My daughter, now reading the books for the first time, is equally besotted and listed ‘Hogwarts professor’ as her dream occupation at school recently. I think I may need to get her one of these cushions too!
