So you have your theme, decor, food, and entertainment all planned out for the most perfect Pi Beta Phi Bid Day. You’re almost done planning but there’s just one more thing you have to figure out…Gifts! Bid Day gifts are the very first present your new members will receive as new Pi Beta Phi’s and will most likely carry those items throughout their collegiate years. If you’re stuck on what memorable gifts you should be including this Bid Day, don’t stress we have you covered! We asked sorority women from all over the country what gifts they love seeing on Bid Day and gathered the top 5 answers to create your perfect Bid Day gift cheatsheet.
1.Totes & Bags
Totes, bags and backpacks are always great bid day gifts because you can gift them on their own or fill them with smaller Pi Phi swag and make the gifting process even more of a surprise. There’s so many cute sorority tote and backpack options but we love these unique Rose Gold cosmetic bags. They come in 3 different sizes and font designs and are the perfect size to throw in backpacks for everyday use or as accessory bags for weekend getaways… aka sisterhood retreats!
2. Water Bottles
Who doesn’t love a good reusable water bottle? With 6 designs and 15 different color options, you can mix and match with Pi Beta Phi colors or get creative and match a font and color to your bid day theme! They are such a useful yet super trendy gift for your new Pi Phi’s.
3. Decals & Stickers
Decals and stickers are such a special yet easy gift for new members. They will want to rep their Pi Beta Phi pride right away and these non-damaging decals are perfect for car windows, laptops, notebooks and any other smooth surface you can think of!
Buttons make a great secondary gift on bid day because chances are you are already gifting them a bag or t-shirt and a little extra button really plays up the Pi Phi pride. Our button sets come in a pack of 5 various and unique Pi Beta Phi designs so not every new member whas to weat the same but will be connected whenever they see another sister rocking one of her cute bid day buttons.
Last but certainly not least, keychains! These keychains are our #1 bestselling product year round but especially during Bid Day season! Keychains are always the cutest gift for new members because they can hang them from their keys, purses or backpacks right away and show off their Pi Phi pride in a stylish yet subtle way. Our A-Listers ranked these as #5 on their list because they are the perfect gift to pair with another sweet Pi Phi present. Imagine seeing your new sisters around campus all rocking their brand new keychains. Too cute!
