Get a severus mug for your father-in-law Bob.
n. An ambiguous character in the Harry Potter series. He teaches the Potions class, speaks mostly in a whisper and snarls a lot.

In the books, he is a thin, spider-like man with a large hooked nose and greasy black shoulder-length hair. He wears billowing black robes and pretty much dislikes everyone.

In the movies, he is Alan Rickman in a non-wizardy but completely adorable outfit.
Fangirl: Aaaahhhhh! Cuteness!

Fangirl: Sevvie-cakes!
Snape: DO NOT CALL ME THAT!

Get a Severus Snape mug for your sister Sarah.
A Potions professor at Hogwarts school in the Harry Potter series.

Snape is generally described as hook-nosed, greasy-haired, pale and thin. His demeanor towards Harry Potter is closest to loathing, for reasons unbeknownst to Harry, until the 7th Harry Potter book. In the final installment, Harry discovers that Snape loved his mother Lily. Snape also despised Harry's father, James, perhaps because of jealousy.

Although Snape hates Harry due to Harry's resemblance of James Potter, he sees his own love's eyes in Harry. Snape is largely responsible for saving Harry's life throughout his school career by working as a double agent for Dumbledore. His death is quick and without glory, but Harry spreads the knowledge of Snape's bravery in the years after his death.
Insert a beautiful doe Patronus, the same Patronus as his unrequited love's, Lily Evans, performed by Snape.

Dumbledore,with tears in his eyes: All this time?
Severus Snape: Always.

The greasy haired, hook nosed potions master in Harry Potter that "loathes"...mostly everything. Mysterious, and has a haunting past. Was a death eater, but turned spy for Dumbledore and the Order Of the Pheonix.

In the sixth book, Snape murders Dumbledore.

In the seventh book, Snape shows Harry why he did it. Turns out he loved Harry's mother, Lily, and turned to Dumbledore for help when he found out Voldemort was going to kill her (and her son and husband). When Dumbledore has one year left to live he asks Snape to kill him in order to help others.
Dumbledore: But this is touching Severus, have you grown to care for the boy, after all?
Severus Snape: For him? Expecto Patronum!
(A silver doe patronus like Lily Potter's emits from Snape's wand.)
Dumbledore: After all this time?
Snape: Always

Lily Potter: Does it make a difference, being Muggleborn?
Snape hesistated. His black eyes, eager in the greenish gloom moved over the pale face, the dark red hair.
Snape: No, It doesn't make any difference.
