Greek Gear has a new line of sorority magnets ready for gift giving.
The colors are like Easter eggs and the designs pop! There are flower-type circular designs with Greek Letter insignia in the center. Others focus on the mascot painted on a plain background. The last design is similar to polka dot flowers with the sorority name written (painted) out. All have delightful colors.
They come in a set of 3 and each measures approximately 1.25"
I love this new style!
These new sorority mascot designs may inspire some of you to paint your own. There are a variety of supplies at local craft departments or stores (my favorite is JoAnn's) that can help you turn out your own unique Greek magnets that will undoubtedly be one-of-a-kind. Hand made gifts are the BEST!

Make a scrapbook that is full of inspirational quotes for your sorority sister. You can include pictures or skip the pictures for a super easy gift. Consider using lyrics to songs about your sorority. You could also include your family poem, favorite quotes about sisters and/or friends, etc.
Consider including pages that are decorated with scrapbook embellishments with room to add pictures later, like your big sorority events, make a two page spread of each event with the title across the top of the page. You can make the pages completely decorated except for the pictures which can be added later by you little sister. Think about including your sorority's community service, your big philanthropy events, your sorority family picture, and anything else that deserves a place in a sorority scrapbook.

I love these sorority mascot wine glasses. They are hand painted and offered on Etsy.
Each glass is colorfully decorated with a sorority mascot with a matching ribbon tied around the stem. Examples above include a ZTA crown, an anchor for Delta Gamma, and a lion for Alpha Delta Pi. The base of the glass is also decorated.
The artist has this to say:
What a perfect gift for the ADPi in your life. Big Sis, Lil Sis, Alumna, whoever! We can do other sororities, too. Initials, "monogram", themes.
Wine glasses are large and sturdy (24 oz!!!)
Custom orders available, just send me a message! We love creating new pieces for Etsy friends so let me know what you need!
Glasses are heat set but hand washing is always best!
***We can create this wine glass for your entire Sorority, New Members, Officers, etc. Ask about discounts for large orders!!!***
Set of 4 is $50 (Save $10) and is in a separate listing.
If you like to make your own sorority gifts, this is a great idea that requires only a few supplies. Of course, you need a wine glass. The paint should be enamel or any type that will adhere to glass. Just check at your local craft store. Be sure that you use quality brushes. Good brushes are a secret to good painting. : )

A hand made sorority pillow makes a great little sister gift!
What are your favorite colors? My favorite colors are pink and green together. That's why I love sewing Delta's with Zeta's and little turtles on pillows, because the colors are so bright and motivating. Same goes for making Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority gifts. The pink and green together just makes it beautiful, no matter what you are making.
I made this little Delta Zeta pillow with some leftover fabric that I already had in my fabric basket. The pink and white striped canvas brightens up what ever I make out of it. The green fabric is a knit, soft like tee shirt material.
I used the Greek Letter patterns for Delta and Zeta, but taped the 2 patterns together, so that the two letters could be joined as one. I like that because it is symbolic of sisterhood to be connected or joined to each other as sisters. I use stitch witchery as a binding agent to iron the letters onto the back fabric. Once the letters are stuck on the fabric, then using the zig zag stitch on my sewing machine, I stitched all the way around the Greek Letters (Delta Zeta).
Then I got out my acrylic paints and painted a simple turtle crawling up the Delta. The fun part is adding embellishment to the turtle shell. Every turtle comes out different, and that is what makes handmade gifts so unique...they are one of a kind.
The front and the back of the pillow are sewn together except for a hole left to put in stuffing. After stuffing, the opening is closed with hand sewing.
The point is to MAKE SOMETHING YOURSELF. Put yourself into making a gift and the recipient is sure to appreciate your efforts. Sorority gifts are treasures when made special by hand.
