Harry Potter Sock Advent Calendars Are Back At Target

Hurry! These sold out quickly last year.

You can still eat chocolate as you count down the days until Christmas, but now, there are Advent calendars filled with all kinds of goodies, from alcohol to wine and cheese. There are also numerous calendars that get you 12 pairs of socks for the month of December, with themes from Mickey Mouse to “Game of Thrones” and, a returning favorite, Harry Potter!

We first told you about Target’s Harry Potter Letter 12 Days of Socks Advent Calendar last year, and now, just in time for this holiday season, it’s back. The calendar is $15 and includes a mix of crew and ankle socks for sizes 4-10.


If you got last year’s calendar, don’t worry — the socks in this year’s version are totally different. And yes, that also means you’ll now own 24 pairs of Harry Potter socks, which makes your sock collection officially the best ever.

We should also mention that the socks come in a package that looks like a letter from Hogwarts, so if you’re giving them as a gift, you might want to make sure the receiver knows they haven’t been accepted to the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry … or have they?!?


And when you open it, there’s even more magic inside, including photos of Harry Potter favorites on each of the days. Check it out:


The only bad news is that the calendar is currently “temporarily out of stock” at Target’s online store. Instead, you’ll have to check your local store for availability (or keep your fingers crossed they are eventually back in stock online).

Target has other sock Advent calendars, also for $15. You’ll find designs inspired by Star Wars characters, Marvel heroes, Disney princesses and even Game of Thrones. How awesome are these?


Will you be picking up a Harry Potter Advent calendar to count down to Christmas?
