13 Perfect Bid Day Gifts For Your Little

13 Perfect Bid Day Gifts For Your Little

She's your perfect one, so why not get her some perfect gifts?


Being in a sorority is awesome for leadership development, personal growth, and for making lasting connections. More often than not, those connections are often solidified within your own "family." Having a big, and finding a little (or multiple littles!!), is one of the most rewarding parts of this family.

Your little is your go-to, and she deserves the world during this special week of gift giving. Besides, you need to be the best big ever, right? Start collecting your big little gift ideas to make it the best week ever!

1. Painted Canvases

What better way to start her sorority experience than with awesome wall decor? There are all kinds of wonderful ideas all over Pintrest for canvases, and if you're scared to get creative, you can always buy custom canvases on Etsy.

2. Cups/Glassware/Mason Jars

If someone gave me a cup right now, I wouldn't be mad. But a customized cup with my letters, my name, or my school on it? I would be ecstatic. Cups are great big little gift ideas because you can get a cup, a mug, a glass, or a mason jar and they all feel like different gifts! Can you say big little gifts on a budget? Score!

3. T-shirts

We know this is 80% of the reason you wanted to be in a sorority. There are so many awesome shops on Etsy that will make you an awesome shirt in any color you want. If you can't find things there, search all over every corner of the Internet. You'll see what I mean. (Pro tip: get a few of her t-shirts in a size up for comfort! :) )

4. Wooden Letters/Canvas Letters

There are so. many. ways. to decorate letters. Use your little's favorite color or your sorority's colors for that lovely custom touch. It's an easy big little gift idea for you and will look great hanging on her wall!

5. Bulletin Board


Bulletins are such an easy craft to make. Take a pre-made one or some cork tiles and hot glue them together. Decorate them with letters, her name, your sorority mascot, flowers, fun push pins, or whatever else you can think of.

6. Pin/Badge Box

The cult-y part of sororities is having these little pins that all mean different things. You typically get one during initiation/activation/whatever you call your new member ceremony, and without a cute little box to keep it in, you're probably going to lose it almost immediately.

7. School Supplies

Pencils, pens, planners, oh my! The possibilities of what you can buy are endless, but no matter what, your little's desk will certainly have a new, beautiful aesthetic.

8. Stickers

Stickers are so fun to put everywhere, and they're cheap on the big end of things. Your little will love putting all kinds of fun stickers on her laptop, water bottle, or whatever space she can find!

9. Blanket

If you need something to fill a lot of space, a blanket is 100% the move. Buy it and get it embroidered, buy it pre-embroidered, or make a fleece tie blanket for those perfect big little gifts on a budget!

10. Keychain

Keychains are such a simple way to show off sorority flair. Get your letters, your sorority's name, your mascot, your school name, or whatever you want! It'll bring you BIG joy to see a cute keychain on your little's lanyard, keys, or backpack!

11. Hats

Hats are great for those not-so-great hair days when you just want to sit in the back of lecture and hide. If you're gonna hide, you might as well do it in a stylish way!

12. Sweatshirts/Other clothing

Some of these clothing items can be a lil more expensive, but it'll be worth the investment when you see how happy she is in her new favorite clothes!

13. Anything in the $1/$3 section at Target

Get yourself there and go nuts. Walmart and Dollar Tree are also great places to swing by for all the other little extras. Find candy, straws, nail polish, snacks, notepads, non-sorority room decor, and anything else you can find. The more stuff, the better!

There are tons and tons of ways to get big/little week done on a budget. Starting to collect your stuff early and gradually definitely helps with the process. No matter what you end up giving her, your little already loves you so incredibly much. Happy shopping and happy crafting!

7 Reasons You Should Order A Vodka/Water/Lime When You're Out

There’s a reason the Vodka/Water/Lime is the number one drink at The Strip every weekend.

We’ve all been through it. Whether it was sometime in high school, out freshman year of college or the day we turned 21, at some point you have or will tried to order a drink while you’re out on the town. I’m here to end all the experimentation, and give you a go-to drink that is sweeping across college campuses everywhere, the Vodka-Water-Lime, and the reasons why, are clear to see.

1. It will keep you hydrated

It may seem trivial but hydration is key if you’re planning on drinking any amount any time, or so I have been told. But let’s face it, biology grants us the ability to chug concoctions called 4-Lokos with ease while drinking the recommended amount of water per day almost impossible. The drink that solves both issues—Vodka-Water-Lime.

2. It doesn't taste that bad

I’ll admit I was a little skeptical at first, but this drink isn’t that bad to swallow, especially when you think about some of the other things you could be drinking. There’s a reason why the only way people can drink tequila is in shot from or in a lime slushy. As the old saying goes: if you drink enough everything just tastes like water, and this one already has water in it!

3. It gets you drunk

That’s right. It does the job. Isn’t that really all we want in a drink anyway, everything else is just trivial.

4. It establishes immediate common-ground

What is that girl next to you at the bar about to order? You guessed it. Now imagine that you are about to order the same thing, she is practically begging to dance on you at this point, it’s that easy.

5. Easy, Quick, Universal

There are just three simple ingredients, and the amounts of which are subject to your personal preference and tolerance levels. It doesn’t require the aid of Chet the self-proclaimed mixologist to make—it’s so easy a baby could do it! And it’s known virtually everywhere, if you’re ever in a place that doesn’t have either vodka, water, or limes, you’re probably there against your will anyway.

6. Health Benefits

Since most people don’t drink liquor straight, the use of a chaser or mixer is required, but we all know the problems that causes. Sugar and alcohol don’t mix well, not to mention the calories in soda. Vodka-Water-Lime has not calories and no sugar added. On top of that, the presence of water and lack of soda is almost a guarantee that you won’t be hungover the next day.

7. It's shameless

With all of the numerous benefits, it’s impossible to give someone a hard time for ordering this, yet it happens. Becky’s friends may tell her that she looks great and shouldn’t be concerned about her calories. WELL MAYBE BECKY JUST LIKES THE TASTE. Still, Bradley may get bold and order one out with the boys, but since there’s nothing to crack open, he may be the butt of their jokes, but Bradley knows that he made the right choice.

NOTE: limes can be substituted for other in-season citrus fruits.

There’s a reason the Vodka-Water-Lime is the number one drink at The Strip every week. The facts are there; it’s not fake news. Vodka-Water-Lime should be your new drink. It’s not just something you adopt in college or for a few nights out, it’s a lifestyle. The Vodka-Water-Lime is classy and sophisticated, it is a drink that you can order somewhere fancy like a restaurant or a Carnival cruise ship, or even on your wedding night.

Yes I'm A Sorority Girl, But Here's What I'm Not

I didn't "buy my friends"


I think there's such a negative stigma around Greek life in this world. Movies and TV have made it out to be crazy, continuous partying and full of hateful people all based on looks. I love being a part of Greek life for so many reasons. Here are some misconceptions about Greek life debunked.

1. I Didn't "Buy My Friends"


My sisters are my friends because we all share common values, likes, and dislikes. We spend every day together, live together in the house, share group chats, and have similar majors so we are always together. No amount of money could've made the bond my sisters and I have and I wish people would realize the true bond between sisters because it's magical.

2. We Really Care About Our GPA's and Grades


There's a certain GPA every Greek house requires you to meet in order to stay an active member. Plus, we always encourage study dates with other people in the house and some houses even throw study events to raise money for charities. Also, some of the top scholars known were in Greek life soooooo...

3. Philanthropyyyyyy!!


Many people think we don't do anything but socialize when really our whole existence is based on philanthropies! We spend every semester raising awareness and money for the foundations we love and we have all ended up being some of the primary monetary donors for those causes!

4. We Don't Judge Based Off Looks


It's what's on the inside that truly counts. We all have found our houses by our personalities and values, not by our looks. A house will want you if you share the same value as them and that's how you'll find your people.

5. We Also Don't Judge By The Brands You Wear


It's true that many of the girls you may see in one house might all have something similar by a certain brand altogether, but that's just what being sisters is like. it's not like you have to buy certain expensive brands or dress a certain way to "fit in." Greek life is all about being yourself!

6. I'm Not Living Off "Daddy's Money"


Most of us are on academic scholarships and have to maintain grades and a good image to keep going to our college. Not all of us were born rich, you know?

7. Partying. Nonstop Partying.


It's true with any college student that it's fun to go out every now and then, but it isn't what Greek life consists of. Greek life is supposed to be finding your forever people, your second family, and your home away from home. These are the people you will rely on on your best days and worst, you don't have to party for that to happen. Plus, believe it or not, there are certainly Greeks who don't party or choose to stay away from that lifestyle.
