Is there an etsy Christmas Market near you? I know our local markets have things like the deathly hallows symbols and the house signs as jewellery, cushions or wallets/handbags/purses/nappy bags with HP themed fabrics and that sort of thing. I would think the etsy markets would have similar surely.

Maybe try one of the Tshirt places like red bubble or threadless? My kids Gryffindor shirt is from one of those.

While I agree that Snape was a very complicated character, I get annoyed when people try to justify his awful treatment of not only Harry, but Neville as well. I understand why Harry named one of his sons after him, but there were so many other characters that died protecting him and the school, who treated him well from the beginning. Remus Lupin being one of them. The only time Snape showed any form of affection for Harry was in that minute before he died.
And don't even get me started on Neville. The only reason Snape was so horrible to him (more so than other students, except Harry), was because he COULD have been the chosen one. And poor Neville was terrified of him and could never understand why he was treated like that. Snape was abusive and while in the end he made the ultimate sacrifice, his mistakes shouldn't be justified by anyone.
On another note, I wonder if Snape had have been placed in Gryffindor, if things would have been different for him. He was definitely not like the other Slytherins in that he actually died for the greater good and he was incredibly brave. Even at the Battle of Hogwarts, none of the Slytherin students stayed to fight, which is understandable, but a pretty dominant quality of the house (looking out only for yourself). Snape was different in that respect, but then again, it took Lily's death to change him, and even then, not enough to be a kinder person.
I just think other characters probably deserved Harry's recognition more. I understand the whole redemption theme going on, but I think that was powerful enough with Snape's death and Harry finally learning the truth after 7 years.

So, I've been thinking... is there an age where a HP themed birthday party is no longer appropriate?

Um. No. Even Nearly Headless Nick was still throwing (albeit terrible) parties 500 years after he died.
