Daydream Charm, Patented
This Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes product is packaged in a colourful box with a romantic fantasy scene depicted on it, but we don't know what the item itself looks like. When activated, the user enters a realistic, "virtually undetectable" thirty-minute daydream; "side-effects include vacant expression and minor drooling" (HBP6).

Decoy Detonator
This Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes product is a "weird-looking black hooter-type object" that, when dropped, will scurry off and make a loud noise just out of sight. Even when not in use, a Decoy Detonator will attempt to do this, though without setting off a noise (HBP6).

Deluminator (a.k.a. Put-Outer)

Small magical object that looks like a cigarette lighter. When clicked, the Deluminator sucks all light from a place. When reversed with another click, balls of light fly back out of the Deluminator and restores the light or lights that were extinguished. It also has other powers, but that is the most obvious (see below for details).

diadem of Ravenclaw
A diadem (also called a tiara) that bestows wisdom on the wearer. It is etched with the words, Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure (DH29, DH31).

Dom
The "ball" (actually the gallbladder of a goat) used in playing Aingingein (QA2). It may or may not have actually been an enchanted object.

doors

dragon, model
Harry and the other Triwizard champions drew small model dragons out of a silk bag. The type of model indicated which dragon thay had to face. Harry drew the Hungarian Horntail. (GF20).

Dungbomb
When thrown, one of these magical stinkbombs gives off a putrid odor, which is handy for creating a diversion.
