Ten-Second Takeaway

For all the Potterheads out there {and the muggles too}, we have found the perfect Harry Potter-themed gifts from The Upcycle Co, an online brand that makes products by upcycling old vinyl records.

After All This Time? Always…

It’s been two months since Harry Potter and The Cursed Child was dropped on us and though we are still reeling from the new characters and the plot twists, we have found solace in the classic Rowling characters {sorry Jack Thorne}.

The Upcycling Co., based in Goregaon, is an online brand that creates beautiful home decor items out of old vinyl records.┬áTheir tag line is literally ‘we put the funk in junk’ and rightly so. Who thought old vinyl records could be turned into our favourite childhood stories? The Upcycling Co. did, and we are grateful for the wonderful creations they have carved out of black plastic metal that is otherwise a wasted material.

The Upcycling Co.┬ásources these waste vinyl records either through donations which they open to pan-India or if they’re running out of the vinyls, they go to ‘raddi walas‘ and get them from there. Could we love them anymore?

What We Love

We love the Harry Potter gift set that is begging us to put it in the cart and checkout. It has everything, from the Hogwarts key crest keychain to the Elder Wand bookmark and even a Dobby Boomark {and carry it everywhere} . What’s more, it’s on sale so it’s super cheap. Apart from this, their wall stickers collection is really funky as well with outrageous statements and if you’re running out of gifting ideas, go here and shop this.

So, We’re Saying…

Geek up and go for the Harry Potter goodies as they sell out really quickly on the website. We had our eyes on the bookmarks, especially the Elder Wand one for our spells to conquer the books we read but it got sold out. Nevertheless, we love these products for the eclectic designs and how sustainable and eco-friendly they are. We think Hermione would approve.

#LBBTip: They’ve also started designing products by upcycling used CDs so do keep a watch out for the items.

Price: Harry Potter gift set INR 750, Hogwarts key chain INR 149, Harry Potter keyholder INR 349
