An appropriate gift for a debutante is a piece of jewelry. If the ball is dedicated to a charity, giving a donation is also appropriate.
Debutantes are young women that are presented to society as adults. This tradition is held in different areas of the world, including the United States. Some balls are themed around raising money for specific charities, while others have other themes. Jewelry that is engraved with the young woman's initials or birth date are always special and will be treasured. This includes rings, lockets, bracelets and more. Engraved picture frames or plaques are also appropriate for debutantes.
