Slytherin Gifts

If you are here because you are looking for Slytherin gifts then you are in the right place! Whether you are looking for a Slytherin present for yourself or someone else, you are sure to find the right item because I have gathered the best Slytherin merchandise that will make perfect gifts for Christmas, birthdays, or any other occasion.

For those who are interested, here is a bit of history about Slytherin House. Slytherin is one of the four houses students can be sorted into at Hogwarts. The crest for Slytherin has a snake or serpent on it and the colors are green and silver. This house was founded by Salazar Slytherin and he valued students who were pure of blood and were willing to do whatever they could to achieve their goals. This is what the Sorting Hat has to say about this house:

"Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends.
"

Notable members of Slytherin House include Tom Marvolo Riddle (aka Lord Voldemort), Severus Snape, Draco Malfoy, Lucius Malfoy, Narcissa Malfoy, Bellatrix Lestrange, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, Regulus Black and the entire Black family (except for Sirius Black), Dolores Umbridge, Horace Slughorn, and the Bloody Baron.

Hagrid
once told Harry Potter, "There's not a single witch or wizard who went bad who wasn't in Slytherin." While this isn't entirely true, as Peter Pettigrew of Gryffindor proved, the majority of bad witches and wizards were graduates of Slytherin House. But that does not mean that all Slytherin students are destined to turn bad.

Draco Malfoy had the opportunity to turn bad after he became a Death Eater. He tried to kill
Albus Dumbledore several times but couldn't manage it, not even when Dumbledore was helpless before him. He also saved Harry Potter's life after Harry had been brought to Malfoy Manor by Snatchers. Draco knew that the boy with the swollen face was Harry but refused to definitively identify him and condemn him to death. Draco may have been on the path to be a nasty wizard and did despicable and cowardly things while a student at Hogwarts but he had an awakening of what life would be like if he continued down the path he was on and turned away from it.

I have searched the most reliable online stores for items that any Slytherin fan will love. You will see buy buttons from a variety of sites, including Amazon, the WB Shop, and Zazzle.

Wearable Slytherin Gift Ideas

Bathrobe

Slytherin Bathrobe

Bathrobes serve two basic purposes: To put on after getting out of the shower, or to wear around the house when you don't feel like getting fully dressed. The Slytherin bathrobe lets you do either of those things while showing off your Slytherin pride!

The Slytherin bathrobe is made of high quality cotton and will last for years. It is black with a green belt and green trim on the sleeves and hood, and has the house crest on it. This is a luxurious gift that is sure to be well received.

Scarf

Slytherin Scarf

Every Hogwarts student who was sorted into Slytherin House was required to wear a House uniform. Part of that uniform was a scarf. Although the scarf was part of the uniform, it doesn't look as though the students had to wear them. Rather, it looks like they had the option of wearing them when they wanted to, such as when they went outside in the winter time.

A Slytherin scarf is the perfect way to keep your neck and face warm in cold climates. Scarves vary in colorations and length, and some have the Slytherin House crest while others do not, but they are all in tones of silver and green.

Shirt

Slytherin Shirt

There is no shortage of styles for Slytherin shirts for men, women, and children! Shirts include t-shirts, tanks, and long sleeved shirts. Some styles have a more tailored look, others are casual, and there are also shirts with long sleeves. The shirts found on Zazzle are even customizable, allowing you choose from a  variety of colors and shirt styles.

I've included three different sources for the tees and each of the above retailers has different stock so you can find the perfect shirt for the Slytherin fan in your life (or for yourself!).

Socks

Slytherin Socks

Socks are such simple and easily overlooked pieces of clothing. They keep our feet warm and dry, as well as keep our feet comfortable while we walk around in shoes. But they can also be a really fun way to accessorize and that's why I've included Slytherin socks as a gift idea.

Slytherin socks come in a variety of styles, from ankle socks to knee highs, and and I even saw one style that had a cape on the back of each sock (yes, you read that correctly, a cape!). There are socks for both men and women.

Sweatshirt

Slytherin Sweatshirt

Sweatshirts are favored by a lot of people (myself included). What's not to like about a sweatshirt? It is warm, comfortable, and casual. You can sometimes even wear them instead of a jacket when you want to stay warm outside.

A Slytherin sweatshirt is perfect for people who live in places with cooler temperatures or who simply like to stay cozy warm, as well as fashionable. There are sweatshirts with and without hoodies, and a nice selection of styles and colors to choose from.

Tie

Slytherin Tie

Students who are sorted into Slytherin must all wear a Slytherin necktie, even the girls. The tie proudly displays the colors of Slytherin House, which are green and grey.

Colors vary based on each type of tie. This means that you will find there are several color combinations and styles to choose from. In addition to color differences, you will also see that some of the ties have a Slytherin crest on them while others do not.

Watch

Slytherin Watch

A watch is the type of present that will be welcomed by just about everyone. Why? Because we all want to keep track of time and wearing a watch is the easiest way to do that.

Help your Slytherin fan keep time with a Slytherin watch. There are watches for both men and women. This  includes watches worn on the wrist and pocket watches that are so detailed that they look more like art than time pieces.

Misc. Slytherin Gift Ideas

Blanket

Slytherin Blanket

Blankets are a multi-purpose kind of gift. Some people like to use blankets as decorative wall tapestries and some as throws that are looked at but not used. Then, of course, there are people who actually use blankets, as, well, blankets!

Slytherin blankets can be used as throws to decorate beds or couches, to stay warm, or to decorate walls as a tapestry. There is only one officially licensed Slytherin blanket. It has a serpent and is made from the Slytherin House colors of green and grey.

If you visit Etsy you will see that there are a nice variety of handmade blankets for you to choose from. Some are crocheted while others are made from material, but they all look great. A few of the handmade blankets can even be customized with names!

Cell Phone Case

Slytherin Phone Case

Just about everybody these days has a smartphone. Do you know why that is a good thing when it comes to Slytherin gifts? It means that the smartphone can be fitted with a decorative case.

A Slytherin phone case is a super easy and fun way for people to show off their love of Slytherin House, and there is no shortage of designs to choose from. As I'm sure you know, there are many different phones out there, so I recommend that you search for a specific phone type after you arrive at any of the stores listed below.

It's a good idea to ask the person you are buying for what type of phone he or she has, including the year it was released. That way you are assured of finding a case that will fit.

Coffee Mug

Slytherin Mug

Coffee mugs are another great gift idea that you really can't go wrong with. Even if the person you give the mug to doesn't drink coffee, he is likely to drink something that can be put in the mug.  If the mug is big enough, it can even be used for soup. I am a perfect example of this. I don't drink coffee but have plenty of mugs that I drink tea or milk from.

There are many different Slytherin coffee mugs - some have witty phrases on them like Embrace the snake within, while others have elaborate designs such as the Slytherin House crest on them.

Pen

Slytherin Pen

The final gift idea is another item that people use just about every day - a pen!

The officially licensed Noble Slytherin pen is a gorgeous writing tool, seen here. It is made of die cast metal and decorated with 24 carat gold plate and silver. The length of the pen is enameled with green and a serpent sits atop the pen.

As you might guess, there are also plenty of fan made pens. Etsy has several sellers who have made their own versions of the Slytherin pen and their results are fun and creative.
