The great thing about puzzles is that they can be fun to put together. The bad thing about puzzles is that once they’re done, they can really only be admired for so long. Not so with this puzzle!

Out of everything on this list, this happens to be my personal favorite. IT’S A GLOWING POTION! What better way to add a little bit of magic to your friend’s place? Maybe get one for yourself too while you’re at it. Tap the base and utter, “Lumos” to watch it light up; tap it and say, “Colovaria” to make it switch to a different color…red, blue, green, or a slow fade. Just make sure your friend doesn’t really drink it.
