Sorority Gifts for Rush and New Pledges

Get set for Rush Week

Sorority rush is so much fun for pledges and chapter actives alike. Making a decision about which sorority to choose can be a tough choice, but The Pink Giraffe has you covered for all of those fun and unique personalized sorority gifts you need to make it through from Rush week to initiation. We have assembled some great ideas for you.

Gifts for The New Pledge

When a girl has newly pledged a sorority, nothing is more fun than putting those Greek letters all over everything she owns. A great way to sport her new membership is with clothing embroidered with her new letters. A custom monogrammed sweatshirt, quarter zip or even a puffy vest can be a great way to show off her newly pledged pride! Classic monogrammed t-shirts with the Greek letters on one side and a monogram on the other are a perfect choice for that new pledge. She will love to wear all that personalized gear all around campus going from class to the dining hall or even a football game.

Vinyl Decals Can Personalize Anything

A custom monogrammed sticker for her car is so much fun, but add in her new sorority letters and you can take it to a whole new level of preppy. Our monogrammed vinyl decals can be applied to just about any smooth surface including glass (so fun for car windows), wood (think dorm room headboard personalization) or even walls in her apartment. Larger decals are perfect for walls and for designing a space that shows off that she is proud of her Greek affiliation. Choose any of our custom designed key rings with initials or sorority letters in your chapter colors to create a fun an unique pledge gift that she will cherish for years to come.

Celebrate Initiation in Style

Initiation is a major event in the Greek life experience at any college or university. Becoming a permanent member of the fraternity is a pivotal time for any pledge. Celebrate the big day with a commemorative keepsake like our engraved julep cups with initials or a silver monogrammed jewelry box. She will love to be able to remember her college days with something that will last for years to come.

Scrapbooks for Sorority Memories

What better way to keep track of all those fun photos from sorority days than in a unique and fun embroidered photo album? Whether your mascot is a key, a lion, an anchor, a crown, ladybug or an owl, we can embroider it onto the cover of your book along with a name, date or chapter affiliation. Available in a 4x6 size that makes for an affordable little or big sister gift, but also in a larger 12x12 size for keeping up with all those fun campus pics and paper invitations. These timeless heirlooms are perfect for keeping photos easily at hand long after the cap and gown have been put away from college graduation.

Tips for Buying The Best Monogrammed Towels

Shopping for towels for your home can seem overwhelming as there are so many different kinds to choose from.

Towel Buying Advice

You cannot judge a towel simply by the softness felt while shopping in the store. Lots of manufacturers add softeners to the finish so that the towel feels quite soft in the store but after a few washings that feel will all but wither away. For enduring softness, check the tag for 100% combed cotton. Cotton fibers can collect twice their weight in water. Combed cotton can prevent this by cutting the shorter thread to prevent piling.  Make sure that whatever towels you purchase, the loops are thick and tight. The more dense the loops are, the more absorbent the towel will be.

High Quality Towels

A higher quality towel will be heavier than it appears making it more absorbent. The Pink Giraffe is proud to carry Milagro bath towels by Matouk. They are wonderfully soft, yet equally absorbent and keep their softness and shape with each and every wash cycle. Double turned edges and finished stitching is a sign of a high quality and luxurious bath towel. Monogrammed bath towels make for an excellent décor in the bath as well as being functional. Choose from an array of fonts and thread colors to match your color scheme. Many designers choose to incorporate the monograms in the bathroom into the bedroom as well with custom duvet covers and pillow shams.

Custom embroidered bath towels with matching guest and hand towel set complete with applique taped edging are a classic staple in finer homes across the South. A cherished tradition passed from one generation to the next, the addition of these fabulous hand towels can accent a simple bathroom instantly.

Robes and Shower Wraps

Welcome your guests just like a quaint bed and breakfast would with custom embroidered shower wraps and bathrobes. Adorn them with the name of your beach house or lake home for a personal touch that will be the ultimate in comfort for your guests. Add some slippers or house shoes as well for a full ensemble. And if you are the one making the visit, don't forget to bring along a thoughtful hostess gift of a monogrammed guest towel in linen or terrycloth. Either one will be a favorite to accent the bath.

The Pool House

Make sure to outfit your backyard pool with some custom designed monogrammed beach towels. Choose a color scheme and design all your own so that all of the towels around your pool stay together in one place. These custom towels make a great gift for anyone with a new pool or beach house. Design them with your family name, beach house name or just make one for everyone in your family. The design possibilities are endless.
