Harry Potter fan makes a real-life Pensieve for his wife

Posted on

Here’s an idea that’s sure to summon romance for magical-minded Muggles: A Harry Potter fan created a real-life Pensieve for his wife and filled it with happy memories they share.

Fans of J.K. Rowling’s massively popular book and film series might remember the Pensieve, which first appeared in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, as a magical basin used to review memories. For a wedding gift to his wife, Reddit user DuffManSzALotAThings made a ceramic bowl, featuring the couple’s initials and the Deathly Hallows symbol, and a box of vials filled with “memories” — each a hand-drawn scene from their relationship. The enterprising fan also included a mahogany wand and a cute, plush owl. “I hope the amortentia potion I gave her never wears off…” he writes.

Harry used the Pensieve a few times in the book and film series, most notably learning about Professor Snape’s true motivations.
