I was chosen as one of the treasure bearers in a debut. I find it hard to think of a gift that would present to her. She has all the material things already. If you are chosen as one of the 18 treasure bearers of the debutante, what gift would you give? Happy day to all!

if you have money...a gold bracelet or necklace with her initial on it would be nice. if you're on a tight budget...a silver necklace or bracelet would be a great gift as well.

As a personal gift I like maybe a necklace either with a diamonte initial or full name if it is a small enough name to look good...I think a nice piece of jewellery is nice for a special occasion.

Nowadays giving gift is so hard, sometimes the celebrant, have almost everything, like last weekend we are invited to a children's party and I am pretty sure that the birthday girl has everything one can imagine and I really had a hard time looking for a gift for the celebrant, well I just settle on some educational toys.. as for you, just a suggestion, maybe you can give her a book, or a certificate to a certain spa, after all she will need that badly after the stress of the preparations of her debut and partying.

I was chosen one of the 18 treasures and also chosen one the 18 shots. First I gave a figurine of a fairy when I was chosen in the 18 shots. Then second I gave a mug. I don't have money, that's why. I think giving jewelry is a little expensive. I also don't know what is the best gift for a debutante. I am a very cheap person. I always buy cheap things.

Oh it's hard to give gift to someone who have all the materials things in life. I also suffer same predicament many times. I can't find a good gift for well to do people. But knowing young people normally love scents and colognes....why not take that as a hint. Do get to know her favorite scent and buy that as gift for her. Actually, a debutante will practically love receiving gift no matter what it is. It is the thought that will matter most for them...so whatever you find lovely then wrap and give her. Cheers!

The gift totally depends on what kind of money you have to spend on it. While jewelry is always nice, you can bet that maybe at least half of the other treasure people will give her jewelry too. Since it's almost the Christmas season and you're a treasure bearer, the first thing that came to my mind was to buy a beautiful gold (or silver) glass Christmas ball ornament and have her name and the date of the event put on it. If she doesn't celebrate Christmas (for religious reasons or whatever) then how about a nice gold or silver picture frame. It doesn't have to be real gold or silver, just look like it. I thought of that because I saw a really pretty faux gold picture frame at the dollar store, and it sure looked far more expensive than that. Anyways, I'd look for something unexpected yet a nice rememberance.
