If you haven’t heard of the “Open when…” letters, you probably have an idea of what they are now by the picture above. To explain in more detail, the “Open When…” letters are simply love letters that you write and give to someone special all at once and they open the letters when they feel they meet one of the requirements. This is common in LDRs (long distant relationships) but I think this can fit into Big/Little relationships in a variety of ways: a big who is graduating can give this to their little at pass downs, great gift for during big/little week, or even as a spontaneous gift. It doesn’t have to be just between big and little either, it’s a great gift idea for any sister you have a close relationship with: twins, g-big, PSBF, etc! SO here is my list of “Open when…” ideas, the sorority edition
