    I would prefer....

    Hi, happy new year!

    Which of the following sentences is correct?
    1) I would prefer that he give me the present now
    2) I would prefer that he should give me the present now
    3) I would prefer that he gives me the present now

    And if there is more than one correct sentence, do they express the same idea?

    Thanks

    1 is fine
    2 is BrE if I'm correct
    3 is incorrect or informal (teachers to confirm)
