What lens to gift?

Birthday of good friend coming up and need to decide on a bright lens as a gift to go with her newly acquired a57. Thinking about Minolta 50mm f1.7 or Sony 35mm f1.8. She likes to shoot candids in low light situations. I'm leaning toward the Sony but would like other thoughts. I have and like both. The output of the 35mm seems closer to a classic FF 50mm but this may just be my wishful thinking and old eyes. Thoughts appreciated, thanks.
