I’d want a hippogriff. I’ve always wanted some sort of thing that would let me fly and although its not me who’s actually doing the flying I’m sure it would be the same great feeling. Traveling to me is a great joy and it would be fun to fly with a hippogriff.I would not fly with the hippogriff and not let anyone else try it though, I really would want my friends and family to see the excitement in it.

If I could have any gift from Harry Potter, I think I’d want a Wand and the Magical abilities you need to use one. Or, just to be able to be a student at Hogwarts would be fun.

I’m tempted to say the Invisibility Cloak because it was so good to the trio for so many years. But I think I’d rather have a pensive. It would be so cool to be able to sort through memories and see things clearly in hindsight.

I rhink a trunk like Moody’s, with all the extra compartments, would be fun and functional!

I would love to have a lifetime supply of Floo Powder. That way I could visit my family more often and send my kids to their daily activities without driving them everywhere.

Although there are many magical items I would love to get as a gift this Christmas, the one I think I need the most is a Remembrall. I am so forgetful these days I think a Remembrall to let me know when I’ve forgotten something would come in very handy. That’s of course if I can remember what it is that I’ve forgotten LOL.

Since I’m a muggle a wand wouldn’t do much good so my choice is probably a firebolt

I can’t pick just one!
Haha.
I would have to pick either an owl, a wand, or a firebolt.
