Magic is all around us if you really believe.
Believe in magic and you will find that it is all around us. Things happen magically every day, it’s just a matter of learning how to notice when something magic happens to you.

Magic gifts bring back that nostalgia. We have created this list of 10 magic gifts that would be perfect for any fan of magic. We hope you enjoy this list and we would love to hear your thoughts on it in the comments section below this article.
A Bit About Magic Gifts
Magic gifts are perfect for anyone who is a fan of magic. Magic can be very inspiring and eye-opening and there are many people out there who would love a gift that is themed around magic.
What is magic?
According to vocabulary.com, magic describes those unlikely events that seem to have a supernatural force behind them. When the elevator doors open just as you approach, it may seem like magic. If you believe in witches and sorcerers, you probably already know that they can use magic to make impossible things happen. Magic is often used more broadly to describe things that just seem to involve some greater power. The waiter may appear as if by magic just when you’re craving dessert. Magic can also describe seemingly impossible tricks performed by an entertainer — a magician — such as making a person disappear or pulling a coin out of thin air.
Why are magic gifts so great?
Magic gifts are great, especially for people who are big fans of magic. This is because magic gifts often have some element of magic that the user can produce. A magic set for example will have props available for the user to create their own magic tricks.

- Below are some of the great reviews on this product:
- I wasn’t sure about buying this for my nephew, but I’m glad I did. I was worried about the quality of the materials inside the box, but I didn’t need to worry. They’re well made and durable. There is also quite a bit there. My nephew absolutely loved it and, a year later, continues to put on magic shows. The tricks were simple enough for him to master, but legitimate enough for him to amaze more than a couple adults. Really a homerun for a youngster. – C J Petes
- My 9 year old son received this as a Christmas present. I was thrilled when he opted to play with this gift over any other that day. He intently watched the video to learn how to do a handful of tricks and then proceeded to put on a “Magic Show” for his grandparents later that day. A few months later, he just did another “Magic Show” in his school’s talent show program. The reaction from the crowd of kids was priceless. The kit includes a box with a handle that keeps everything together and stores away nicely. Overall, the kit I believe will grow with him as well. As I mentioned, he learned a handful of tricks right away (the easier ones), but as he gets older, I believe the other ones will be good as well. – Ms. Finnorder
- My son (age 7) is way into magic right now and this kit has brought him endless hours of fun. The DVD provided made it easy for him to learn the tricks and he loves to show everyone what he has learned. – D.O

Below are some of the great reviews on this favorite pick of all magic gifts:
Sometimes simple tricks are the best. I would call this a utility trick in the sense it can be used as part of several other tricks. I’m a fan of magic and have several different tricks that this little item could be used for to enhance the trick. – ricohamby
Fantastic little trick. Does what it says it’s going to do. Plus you can improvise if needed in a number of ways. You can perform it anywhere any time. – Berek
Excellent illusion! My husband was so frustrated that he couldn’t figure it out when I showed him that he finally looked online to see how it’s done. Party Pooper. But that’s how good this trick is! – Amy S
3. ROY KUEPPERS Bite Coin – Bite Out Quarter Magic Coins
This is an excellent classic party trick and one that any magic lover will enjoy. The product is a specially formed quarter prop, which is a fun novelty that anyone can enjoy. A tried and true crowd pleaser, this is definitely one of the best magic gifts.
For this trick, a coin is borrowed from a spectator and a piece is bitten from the coin. The coin is then shown in full view with the piece missing. The magician then spits the missing piece back onto the coin, restoring it. This trick is seamless and easy to do.
This coin is made form high quality materials and is small enough to carry around with you anywhere, making the magic trick accessible wherever you are.
Below are some of the great reviews on this product:
My fiancé loves doing magic to our 4 year old who just thinks Daddy is amazing with pulling quarters from behind her ear . Works great , looks like he really bites it in half . He keeps a real quarter in hand so after the trick , the person can examine it and thinks it was real – JD
These bite out coins are very well made, so well made in fact, that I actually spent mine (a 10 dollar mistake mind you!) So I’d advise keeping this coin in a pouch in your wallet lest you make the same mistake. I ordered another one, I liked it so much. I’ve never personally tried anything like this but it was super easy to pick up, after a couple practice tries, I had it down. Plus it does come with instructions and back up rubber bands in case you do make some mistakes. If you’re looking for a super easy trick to wow some of your friends, look no further. – Kris
This classic mini-illusion requires less skill than acting ability– it’s all in the schtick, as the old timers used to say. With out giving away more that the provided photo already has, I have found it useful to have a Tic-Tac in my mouth, to be crunched at the appropriate time. The ‘sound effect’ makes a big difference. Recommended (Five Stars when compared to others in this price range) – Portista

Below are some of the great reviews on one of our favorite magic gifts:
This was probably my 7 and 8 year old grandkids favorite trick. The 6 inch bunny is in a hidden flap. Kids reach in and pull rabbit out. Great quality. Feels like velvet and hat flattens so you can “snap” it open for effect. Wand good quality also. Not for teens as too simple. – Alice
Just like the sample photo and the hat was a hit! Pops out and flattens as it should. Very sturdy. Already survived several instances of rough handling. – Tonks Plum
The quality of the hat is worth the whole set. It fit my 6-year old perfectly (the hat is not so small, so bigger kids would fit it as well)! – Landi

I purchased this set for my almost 14 year old son as he has reciently been interested in learning magic. I was impressed that before the kit even arrived that Jim Stott sent along information to go along with the kit (PDF format). I have never had anything on amazon include something like this and i thought it was a really cool perk. My son loves the kit! He picked up the tricks pretty quickly. He would disappear into his room until he had mastered them and then show our family. I must admit that I was impressed. He actually did a magic performance for his sisters 6th birthday party and all her friends were amazed. He has even impressed his friends! The packaging is very vaudville esque and nice. I have really enjoyed seeing my teen son engrossed in something besides technology and finding a new skill set. This would make an excellent gift for a boy or girl. Definitely worth the money!! – Meredith Fowler
A great introduction to card magic. I purchased this for my grandson, who turned 12. His review,”AWESOME”. What a great packaging of magic offerings from Mr. Stott. Prompt shipping and a quality product. I’ve bought other magic kits in the past for my other grandchildren but none of them have come close to these kits. I bought the Ultimate Magic Kit along with the Card Magic Kit. – Csage
Externally impressed! We ordered this kit for our 13 year old son who’s recently taken an interest in card tricks. He loves the kit. Very easy to use and comes with bonus videos and online material to expand the kit. Customer service is excellent! Jim emailed as soon as the kit shipped and included additional bonus magic. We’ve been very impressed and highly recommend this kit! – Earl Thomas

Below are some of the great reviews on this product:
My little 4 year old Grandson looked very magical in this outfit. It made for a great picture. – Diane Ogden
My eight year old loves magic so this was a perfect buy for him. He is tall for his age but he still fit into the costume. I bet it would fit a three year old to a nine or ten year old – so it’s a great buy from that perspective. At our local halloween store just to get a magicians hat was $20 – so to get all of this for similar price is a great deal! The rabbit is a fun touch as well! – Virginia Yurich
Melissa & Doug Magician Dress Up set is so much fun!! My daughter loves it and looks adorable in it to boot! Everything that comes in this set is made with quality materials. I was impressed. Initially, I was hesitant on wanting to spend that much on a dress up set. But I am glad I did. Not only is this product made of quality material, it also comes with a few tricks! My daughter loves to pull the bunny out of the hat! It’s a fun set! I highly recommend it! – Christina
