This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

From my understanding, his thespian pin represents a valuable personal belonging here. He gives it to her because he is so in love with her.

A thespian pin is a pin you receive once you have done enough hours of shows (theatrical) to be a thespian. For example:

Giving someone your pin is a sign of romantic commitment for young people still in school, who are likely to participate in extracurricular activities that use pins or badges as signs of membership. (Other examples would be a fraternity or honor society pin, a varsity letter, or a high-school or college ring.)
