The best day of the year is almost here…Bid Day! You’ve been prepping all summer, picking the perfect bid day theme, hiring the best food vendors and DJ, and making sure all the decor is planned and ordered. You’re almost done and just want to welcome home your new sisters already! But you forgot about one last important bid day step, the gifts! Whether it’s a T-shirt and pen or a bundle of trendy DG swag, bid day gifts are your new DeeGee’s first sorority accessories so you want to make sure they are special, memorable and long-lasting. With some help from our A-Listers, we’ve broken down the top 5 bid day gifts we know your new members will love!
Hands down the best bid day gift you can give your new members is a cute Delta Gamma tote! The tote itself is cute and so useful, but it can also be the perfect base gift to add a matching re-usable water bottle, pin, keychain, etc.
Our vote is to always spoil your new members with a cute and stylish keychain! These dainty keychains match almost any purse, backpack and tote so no matter what your new member’s style preference is, they’ll be so excited to add this Delta Gamma keychain to their keys or purse!
We think water bottles are going to be the #1 most perfect bid day gift this recruitment season. Who doesn’t love a customized re-useable water bottle? With 6 designs and 15 different color options, you can mix and match pink and blue for Delta Gamma colors or get creative and match a font and color to your bid day theme!
These elastic no bump hair ties double as bracelets, so you’re not only gifting a cute hair accessory, they can wear them on their wrists as well! You’ll never know the style of every single one of your new members going into bid day so it’s always helpful to get versatile gifts that you’ll know your new members will not only love but use and wear daily!
Decals and stickers are such a special yet easy gift for new members. They will want to rep their DG pride right away and these non-damaging decals are perfect for car windows, laptops, phone cases, notebooks and any other smooth surface you can think of!
What’s perfect about this list of bid day gifts is they are all awesome gifts on their own but bundled together they make the perfect “DeeGee accessory starter kit”.
