I would love to have Ms. Weasley’s magic sponge. I am not a fan of washing dishes – that or a house elf.

What I would love most is Hermione’s beaded bag! It would make traveling so much easier, just think; no more having to check bags at the airport and only being allowed one carry-on! Also for shopping, such as Black Friday, you wouldnt have to carry all your shopping bags all throughout the mall. You could just slide everything into your little beaded bag and be set to go! Yes, thats would be the perfect.magical gift for me! :)

I would want the Sorting Hat so everyone would TRULY know in which house they belong. Also, it’s the only gift I could think of where everyone would benefit.

I would ideally like a letter to hogwarts but after that a portkey would be wonderful as I commute between two cities.

I would love to have the invisibility cloak! It would be fun to be able to disappear when you need to and it’s the best of the hallows!

That’s a tough question! I’m going to have to go with a broom, I think. Firebolt?! fingerscrossed but even the most recent cleansweep would be exciting… because I could FLY!

It’s so hard to choose, but I’ll go with the Pensieve. Sometimes I think that’s just what I need to filter through all my thoughts, or to clearly remember a particularly awesome day. :)
