Collegiate Stadium Blankets for Back to School

20 Aug

Stadium BlanketsWoven stadium blankets featuring collegiate insignias make a great back-to-school present.  These woven collegiate blankets are also available with fraternity and sorority letters.  For that special student in your life, a officially licensed collegiate blanket is the ideal gift that will be well used and a great accent in their dorm room, sorority or fraternity house room or apartment.

They can show their school pride with this super soft, 100% cotton stadium blanket. These are officially-licensed stadium blankets which use 3 layers of heavy-weight cotton fabric combined with high-quality designs directly woven in. It is fringed on all four sides and measures a generous 48″x69″. The blanket is machine washable and has been pre-washed.

These blankets are produced by weavers using the latest computer based looms using the finest cotton from two world class dye houses located within a mile from the mill to create this heirloom quality product.  All the blankets are made in America.

For those in a fraternity or sorority looking for a great addition to their room, consider a quality officially licensed fraternity blanket or sorority blanket.  They will surely make a hit with your recipients.

These are the type of presents that will be treasured and well used by the recipient for many years.  Always appreciated, a stadium blanket will keep the user warm at football games, make an attractive wall hanging in their dorm room or apartment, and be the type of item they will really love to use.

Help them have a great school year!

Gifts for Graduates who Travel

21 May

may-grad-004This month we celebrated the graduation of our youngest son, Robbie.  It was a fun weekend and bittersweet at the same time. Wow, we’re totally done with college for both our kids now!

As all the kids packed their things, turned in their keys and said their goodbyes to their friends, their future plans started to move closer to focus. Many are traveling with friends or family in the next few weeks before they all officially begin a new chapter in their lives.

Robbie graduated from the Kelley School of Business from Indiana University.  Many of his friends graduated with majors like business, engineering, informatics, marketing and more and a good number will be doing a fair amount of travel for their first jobs, especially those in consulting jobs.

When considering  smart graduation gifts, I like to think about what an individual will be doing for their first jobs, and where they will be living, and what sort of interests they may have, in order to select a gift I think that will just right. Of course, sometimes the most useful gift is a check as that is always something that’s appreciated.  But most often I’ll order a personalized gift that I think might be appropriate, either something work-related or for their new apartment if they are moving out of their parent’s house.

For those that will be traveling, a new monogrammed canvas garment bag, a matching weekender, custom luggage tags, personalized passport holders and other similar items might be the perfect ticket.  Travel gifts will certainly be well used trip after trip, whether for work or just to occasionally visit their friends on weekends.

Personalized travel-related gifts add to the whole professional look.  For personal travel, it’s also nice to feel sophisticated when they visit friends.  Related gifts include an embossed leather dopp kit, embroidered cosmetic bag, leather ticket holder, leather monogrammed wallet, and personalized executive stationery.

Wishing all the recent graduates a future of success and happiness!

Best wishes,

Greek Gift Ideas

22 Sep

sept-greek-002Greek Week for many universities around the country occurs in September and while it’s a lot of fun, it’s also a very stressful time as there is a tremendous amount of pressure to get into their first place house.  It’s an important time for many freshman and sophomores who are eager to pledge into their favorite sorority or fraternity as it sets the tone for their next few years on campus.

sept-greek-003Once the students know which house they will be joining they pretty much instantly begin to wearing t-shirts, sweatshirts and other Greek spirit-wear as well as putting up room decorations as they pledge their houses.  A great way to celebrate is to send the student a special item featuring their name and even their house letters on College & Sorority Gifts.

These are the types of items that kids will love to keep for many years as they will hold a special place in their hearts.  Sharing in their excitement is a great way to support their commitment to the house.

Best wishes,

Renee
