If you would like to show your Greek big sister that you appreciate everything she has done for you, a present is in order. A sorority big sister guides you through the rules of the sorority and helps you out during the first important year of college. Show her how much you appreciate her efforts with a well-chosen gift that reminds her of your relationship.
Choose a wooden keepsake box with the sorority letters printed on the top or burned into it. To further personalize it, have her name and the date burned into the bottom or side of the box. A keepsake box is a modest gift that she can use to store jewelry or other small items.
Give your Greek big sister an elegant silver picture frame with a photo of the two of you together. Choose a picture of you posing together during a special occasion. Select a frame that she can hang up or prop upright on her desk or dresser. A silver picture frame is simple enough to match any decor. Write a personal message on the back of the picture that expresses how much she means to you.
Bath Gift Basket
Being a big sister in a sorority can be a tiring job, so let your big sister know that she can take some time to relax with a bath gift basket. Fill a basket with scented soap, luxurious lotions and bath oils and let her have a night to herself. Include a CD full of relaxing music, and add a candle in her favorite scent.
If your big sister loves jewelry, give her a small pendant or set of earrings. Choose a silver or gold pendants that says "Big Sis," or give her something more subtle and elegant, such as a single pearl strung on a chain. A simple pearl goes well with any style, or you can accent it with a small gem directly above the pearl.
Choose an engraved ornament in brass or sterling silver that features your relationship and the letters of your house. It maybe as simple as two figures hugging, or as elaborate a personal message from you to her. An engraved ornament is a great choice when you want a gift that she can display on the wall or even on her Christmas tree.
If your Greek big sister loves the idea of having something sweet and lovable to cuddle, give her a stuffed animal that reminds you of her. A stuffed tiger is a great choice for a very fierce, energetic big sister, and a bunny is ideal for a very gentle big sister.
