Ask Preppy Girl – Birthday Present for the Boyfriend

In a new ongoing feature, I am going to publish questions from my readers. If you have a question for the Preppy Girl email it to me at

Dear Preppy Girl,
I am in college and my boyfriend’s birthday is next week. We have been dating for six months and I have no idea what to get him. Can you suggest a preppy present for under $100?

I suggest buying him a tie from Vineyard Vines; that way he will have something to wear when he meets your parents or goes on a job interview. Belts and silver key chains make great gifts too. Stay away from shirts and sweaters, that is much more of a mom gift.
