The wizard-themed print has been designed by the artists behind the film's most magical props.

Harry Potter fanatics can now get their hands on magical wrapping paper that looks exactly like The Marauder's Map.

The mystical print has been dreamt up by the graphic designers behind the film's most treasured props, from Harry Potter’s Hogwarts acceptance letter and Quidditch World Cup tickets, to Chocolate Frog sweet wrappers and the Daily Prophet newspaper – as well as the famous blueprint itself.

Artists Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, who run Minalima studios, have launched the bewitching gift wrap just in time for Christmas so you can envelop your pressies in the wizard-themed paper.

Ministry of Magic addicts will know that The Marauder's Map first appeared in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban to help James Potter, Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew and Remus Lupin navigate their way around Hogwarts' hidden passages.

It cropped up in later Harry Potter films too, and also became a covert way to track people moving around the vast and spooky school grounds, showing every hallway and corner of the castle, plus footsteps of humans, elves and even ghosts.
