2. Harry Potter Golden Snitch Light – Table Lamp
If the Quidditch was the favorite part of the Harry Potter story for your little boy, this is the best item you can give him for his birthday.

This little ball flies around the Quidditch field at very high speeds, sometimes pausing and hovering in place. The most important player of the Quidditch called the seeker needs to catch the Snitch before the other team’s seeker, providing one-hundred and fifty points for his team. The game can only end when the Snitch has been caught.
This illuminated bell jar with a floating golden snitch is an amazing stylish decoration for a bedroom, game night, or party.
