best boyfriend ever makes nimbus 2000 for christmas

There may well be a lot of incredible Harry Potter memorabilia out there, but college student Shelby Stein got the best wizarding present of all when her boyfriend, Jared Weissman, made her a Nimbus 2000 for Christmas. He constructed it from scratch, even, without even using magic — or at least as far as us Muggles know...

Shelby, 21, is a senior at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. She is also a huge Potterhead. "My room is slowly turning into a Harry Potter fan cave,"Shelby told "This obsession with collection prop replicas started almost a year ago when I had the idea to create a Harry Potter trunk to store my books and fill and cover the outside it with props/memorabilia."

In addition to the books and assorted other knick knacks, Shelby has seven wands, a Hogwarts acceptance letter, mini potion bottles, parchment and quills, and, take a deep breath, replicas of Tom Riddle's diary [Editor's Note: best not to write in this, you know...], Albus Dumbledore's will, Ron's Howler, Hermione's Time Turner, the Sorcerer's Stone, the Triwizard Cup, the Golden Snitch, the Marauders Map, and lots more. If she only had one of Hermione's special fits-everything handbags, this collection wouldn't even need to take up any space.

Her boyfriend of five years, Jared, is also a Harry Potter fan, of course. As a civil engineer major also at GMU, Jared decided to make Shelby a broomstick for her Christmas present, knowing it would be the perfect addition to her growing collection.

Jared built the broom over 3 weeks, using a 2x4 piece of pine for the handle. The bristles were shaped out of basket reed and reinforced underneath with Styrofoam circles to create the shape. He finished it with a mahogany wood stain and polyurethane coat to make it glossy, and hand painted the Nimbus 2000 logo to the top. He then made the kickstand out of plastic rod and painted gold.

Jared presented the gift to Shelby just after they had finished opening presents with her family, and needless to say it was a huge hit.

"It was wrapped in brown paper and twine just like it was in the movie when Harry receives in the Great Hall from his owl Hedwig," Shelby said. "I could tell what it was from the shape of it, and I just remember being so excited and even cried! " "I was amazed at how beautiful it was and how accurate it was as well," she added. "It really does look just like the one from the movie! " Jared sounds like, wait for it, a real Keeper.
