We want to get dd a fountain pen as a graduation present. We can't spend silly money, so no Mont Blancs etc. Anyone know who makes really good pens? Recommendations?

I think surprising someone with a fountain pen is a bad idea.
You can't gauge how it will feel in the recipients hand. Is it:
too big, too small?
too heavy/ light/ unbalanced in their hand?
what kind of nib do they like- fine, medium?
Do they prefer cartridges or bottled ink - do you need to get a convertor.
It's a lovely gift, but not one to randomly present to someone. If she really wants one, take her shopping for it and let her choose
