What do you guys suggest?

Give her a card saying "IOU one camera of a value up to $xxx". After Christmas, take her to a store and let her handle some cameras, then buy the one she likes the most.

Sounds like a good idea. But it helps to be informed. Go to the store ahead of time and see what they have, and then read the reviews here. Especially the conclusions. That way, if one has a paraticular weakness that would impact the kind of photography she does, you can help her understand the shortcomings. She might really like one of the little mirrorless cameras, like Nikon 1 or Olympus PEN.
