Maybe I can get her to spend a little more.

No need, there are lots of camaeras in that range.

I was thinking used Canon XSI body and a used Tamron 17-55mm.

those are fine, but a new kit and kit lens will be just as good,

I told her to avoid the kit lenses

Why would you do a thing like that? Thats just silly! That implies there is something inherently wrong with kit lenses, and there is not.

I think he meant Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II VC LD Aspherical IF SP AF (what a name). And no, the kit 18-55/3.5-5.6 is not as good, especially in low light.
