Depends on what their taste is like. 

 

One thing you may be able to do is to get a book as well as a pen in that book so there is both the artifact and the history for it. one of my friends have done this with a book about Neptune pens and a pen from the same brand to go with it. 

 

You can find many books that would talk about the history and various models of pens that are around. For most brands you may be able to find an example that is within budget to go with a book. That said for best result first get to know their taste when it comes for pens and go from there.

Maybe you could browse through these and get a better idea about what you're looking for.
