    Christmas presents from parents

    I am working on a one-shot involving Snape. The story takes place on Christmas. I was wondering what type of present his parents would have given him. He is 17 and stayed at Hogwarts for the holiday.
    Any suggestions would help as I am at a loss. I remember Mrs. Weasley saying it was traditional to give a watch on the 17th birthday, but Snape is already 17 and will be turning 18 in January.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Well it really depends on what kind of parents you are giving him... if you are giving him loving parents them give him a bigger present. BUT if you are staying true to the book and are going to give him poor, abusive parents then I say that you have them give him nothing.
    Good luck with your story!

    My first thought was a potions book or a dark arts book. Those might be a bit boring though.

    Maybe something needed as a plot device? It could be a journal he writes in later in the story, a potion of some sort, or something passed down through the family which causes him to learn more about his ancestors.

    Oooh, maybe it could be a book on occlumency... we don't know when he learned it, maybe he learned it then...

    Hope I helped!

    I like Wendelin's suggestion of an heirloom. A ring with the family crest, a seal, or something of that sort? Eileen Prince might have something from her side of the family, and we know that Snape was proud to call himself a Prince. A family treasure would be something he would value highly.

    An owl might be useful. A broom...

    Maybe a protective amulet?

    Good luck,
