I fully recognize that coming at you with holiday news in mid-October might seem a little odd, but I swear it's for a good reason. New Harry Potter holiday merch is already hitting virtual shelves, and there are so many ways to count down to the holidays with your favorite wizarding crew. Whether you get one for yourself or gift one to a fellow Potterhead, these Harry Potter Advent Calendars will practically transport you to Hogwarts.
There's pretty much an Advent calendar for everything, so it's not surprising you'll find several options of Harry Potter-themed countdowns. With everything from fun collectible items like little Pop Funkos to tons of super cozy socks, there's something for whatever you fancy. Of course, the calendars usually call for you to wait until December to start prepping for the holidays, but if you get a calendar early and just can't wait, I totally get it.

2. Harry Potter: A Hogwarts Christmas Pop-Up
The Hogwarts Christmas Pop-Up Advent Calendar first debuted in 2019, but the release year doesn't make a difference since it only lists the dates in December as 1 through 25.

Inside the $15 calendar, you'll find 15 different Harry Potter-themed socks in assorted colors, with designs like the Golden Snitch, the flying key, and the Gryffindor coat of arms.
Socks Size 4-10
Target has two other sock calendar options and both are a bit more colorful. One features the Hogwarts crest on the cover and socks with beasts and creatures, while the other has the castle on the cover and chibi-style Harry Potter characters.
