Sorority Initiation Gift Ideas for Pledges
Officially welcoming new sisters into a sorority is one of the most exciting events of the college year. Part of the initiation process is giving new pledges a welcome basket of gifts. While many of these presents are personalized to each individual, it’s also a great idea to include some branded sorority initiation gifts to create a sense of community. Here are five of our favorite gifts for new pledges:
Custom stainless steel water bottles are always a great addition to initiation gifts for sororities, and we love this one from Corkcicle for its unique shape and gorgeous colors. The bottle is made of triple-insulated vacuum-sealed stainless steel that keeps any beverage ice cold for up to 25 hours and hot for up to 12 hours. It comes with a non-slip bottom and screw-on cap for security, as well as a one-piece retail box for a beautiful presentation. Go with the always-in-demand prism color or choose from walnut, gloss white, gunmetal, matte black, cardinal red, or gloss navy — then screen print or laser engrave your sorority emblem on the front.
Instant film is making a comeback, and we’re totally here for this kind of nostalgia. Instant photos are a fantastic way to capture the joy of sorority initiation and to create keepsakes that you can use to decorate the sorority house for years to come. This model from Fujimax is simple to operate and features a flash range of up to nine feet as well as a selfie mirror for perfect posing. It’s also super compact, measuring only 4 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ x 2 5/8″, which makes it super easy to slip into a bag. The camera comes with a 10-count package of film so that you can start capturing memories right away. The camera itself is available in lilac, white, charcoal, sky blue, and blush pink and can be pad printed with a logo or graphic of your choice.
Tired of giving pledges the same basic crew sweatshirts year after year? Quilted jackets and sweaters are trending this fall, so get in on the trend with this quilted snap pullover from J America. This pullover is made from a 70% polyester 30% quilted jersey fabric blend and has a polyester fabric for warmth. It features a poplin snap placket with five metal snaps and princess seams and side split welts for a flattering fit. Choose from black, navy, or charcoal heather colors and embroider your sorority symbol on the left chest pocket for a classy yet practical gift that your pledges will wear for years to come.
This gift for sorority initiation is a triple threat: Not only is it from a trusted brand, but it’s a phone grip that makes taking selfies a breeze — and it comes with a built-in lip balm to boot! The PopGrip itself is clear but the top can be screen printed with a full-color graphic of your choice, and you can choose from either vanilla or strawberry lip balm flavors. The PopGrip Lips feature Swappable technology, so all you need to do is close the grip flat, press down, and twist 90 degrees to swap out the top or charge your phone wirelessly. This is a great bulk gift idea to give to an entire class of pledges or even the whole sorority house.
Every sorority initiate needs a vanity bag for formal event emergencies, and it’s all the better if that custom toiletry bag is emblazoned with their sorority emblem. This particular vanity bag is made of a polyester fabric that is moisture-resistant and easy to wipe off in case foundation spills. It features a zippered main compartment and a snap closure made of faux leather for extra security. Choose whatever color suits your sorority best — red, blue, fuchsia pink, or black — and screen print your sorority emblem or a graphic of your choice on the front of the bag. Coming in at under $5 a unit for even the smallest order quantities, this is another great bulk gift idea for the entire sorority.
