Hi! My name is Alicia Bustillos and I’m from the Iota Chapter at New Mexico State University. I currently work at Base 5 Retail Partners in Albuquerque, NM and am the Director of Marketing for Kappa Delta Chi conference 2015. Got a blog idea that you would love to see? Email me at

Making a list, checking it twice…

 Anyone else still on the making a list part of that? Yeah me too :/  I’m still getting over that thanksgiving food coma! But one of the great parts of Christmas is seeing the happiness in your loved ones face when you give them a great, unique gift! But sometimes it’s tough to come up with a good, meaningful gift. Well with conference being in Chicago this year why not get a few things to get excited for conference. Below are a few ideas that can work for anyone.

Anyone that likes to eat :)

Garrett Popcorn

This popcorn is literally world famous. Since 1949 they’ve been using only the highest quality ingredients from local producers as they handcraft their gourmet Popcorn in old-fashioned copper kettles. They hot air pop their signature blend of kernels, which is then mix into the secret family recipes. Every batch is handmade throughout the day and the result is an irresistible snacking sensation, which has generated lines of historic proportions outside of our retail Shops for decades.

Your lil sis (…and your big…and your class sis… and chapter president…lol)


This is the easiest way to a KDChi’s heart!

There are many stores and price ranges where you can find penguin anything! Now is the time to take advantage and stock up for future littles too. If you want something a little more personalized check out our KDChi vendors. The Jewelria has some beautiful necklaces & bracelets to suit anyone’s taste.

Of course you can never have too many letter shirts. And if you need a quick turn around, order from Collegiate Greek to make sure you get it in time for Christmas! These are only two of many official KDChi vendors. Check out the Kappa Delta Chi website for other places to load up on KDChi gear. And this will make it easier to plan ahead for conference in July too!

For any and everyone while supporting a sister!

There are so many sisters hustling out there selling some awesome products. Origami Owl, Mary Kay, Avon, Younique, there are so many options out there to shop for while supports sisters small businesses. Not sure if a sisters sells? Just go to the sisters only page on Facebook and ask. Any sister is willing to help you pick the perfect gift.

For yourself! 

The ultimate gift that keeps on giving – Conference! Conference is the way to your very own heart. Sometimes a sis needs to spoil herself! Just go to, choose a payment plan, grab a warm cup of hot chocolate and dream up plans for warmer days in Chicago this summer.
