Does anyone else think that guys are hard to shop for? The struggle is over my classy coeds! You know the saying, “The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Here are some Valentine’s Day goodies perfect for your man.
Finals are here,
but don’t you fear!
Instead give a cheer,
a long break is near!
…etc, etc, etc!
Stressing over finals? Chances are, your friends are too! Use one of your study breaks to create an exam pick-me-up. Inspired by a gift given to my sorority sisters, you too can easily provide a little cheer to brighten a day!
Key words to remember when picking out gifts: useful, happy, inexpensive, creative, tasty
At our closing chapter meeting of the semester, all sisters were given a cup filled with goodies along with a pick-me-up poem explaining the gifts.
Goodies included in our pick-me-up:
Similar to CL’s TSM Campaign, you can brighten a friend’s day in just a matter of seconds. Make a point to show someone you care this week — it may seem small to you, but to them it will mean the world to know that they are being thought about. Happy Finals Week!

We all have that friend who likes unique things and doesn’t like to be “cookie cutter.” This is all wonderful until it comes to gift giving. No, no, no a normal trip to the mall just will not do. Where do you turn to? The internet, of course! My favorite place for unique items happens to be ModCloth. They mix vintage items with up-and-coming designers to bring it all together for quite the combination of items.
