Big/Little Gift Inspiration

When first joining a sorority, there will be so many fun things to take part in! One of the most exciting times as a new member is getting a big sister. A sorority Big is someone who helps a New Member along her journey while acting as an encourager, role model, and close friend. Before finding out who her Big is, a New Member is typically showered with gifts welcoming her to the sisterhood. It’s a pretty amazing way to kick off the membership experience!

For those of you taking on a Little this year, we’ve got some adorable goodies for you. Check out our Big/Little gift inspo below and spoil your Little in a special way!

Trendy Sweatshirt

The foundation of any great Big/Little basket is t-shirts...and lots of them! While old sorority tees are awesome to have when you first join, treat your Little to a cozy sweatshirt that she can wear for years to come! Our trendy marble and blush cropped sweatshirt can be worn in so many ways for a lot of different occasions. Check out Meghan Pruitt’s Youtube video for more ways that your Little can style our sweatshirts, tees and tanks all year long!

A college survival kit with all the stuff that you wish you would’ve been given you when you were in her shoes will mean the world to her.
