Sorority Goodies

Hi,

My daughter will be initiating into her sorority in the next week or so. I would like to purchase a goodie basket of "things" for her for the holidays. I am thinking a key chain, mug, frame, etc. Does anyone have a favorite place they order from? I would appreciate any recommendations.

Thanks

A lot of times, there's a local store that carries Greek items and makes up these baskets for special events.

Mom, why don't you wait and see what initiation gifts she receives from her sorority. That way you won't duplicate something she already has and then have to exchange it.

Agreed. She is likely to get a lot of this stuff, and you may want to instead get her one nice piece of clothing she has her eye on or something like that.

She received some goodies from her Big during reveal. Will she also receive stuff at initiation? I know that it may be school and chapter specific.

When I was initiated my mom got me some earrings that looked like violets. I feel like when you're a new member, at least at my school, you're swamped with lots of small presents.

It might be a fun idea to look at jewelry and splurge on one special item as opposed to multiple smaller items. I know those earrings came in handy during each recruitment.

Are you familiar with her big sister? It might be worth reaching out to her in-chapter mentor to see what the chapter does traditionally, if she personally is purchasing any gifts, etc.

My mom worked with my big to surprise me with some beautiful flowers in addition to a pin pillow and a special jacket that displayed our crest, now that I could wear it as an initiated member. It was so thoughtful and one of my favorite gifts ever!

Under sorority goodies, non-specific reasons, I saw the cutest Easter Eggs (larger, for a hunt, I guess) the other day at K-mart. They came three in a pack, and one pack has a Lion, a Panda, and I think a Turtle in it. With a little Panhellenic cooperation, it could be really cute.

If it's a national sorority you could always go to the sorority HQ website. As far as I know they all have estores that you can buy gifts from.

Maybe not in the goody department, but a jeweled badge would probably be an appreciated gift for a special occasion.
