Zoom lens recommendation for Canon Rebel T4i

A friend has a Canon Rebel T4i with kit lens. Her husband asked for help in buying her a zoom for a present. She's ~60 and did a lot of photography when young, now is getting back into it. I am a photographer, but am currently affiliated with the Church of Sony, so I need some help choosing a Canon lens. Here's what I think she needs:

  • All in one lens she doesn't have to switch out much.
  • She's seen my Sony 18-200 in action and I think would like something equivalent.
  • Mid-range price. Not pro, but not bottom-of-the line either.
  • Not too bulky. Should be reasonable for an everyday shooter to carry around.
  • Jury's out on whether it should be Canon glass or Tamron or ??? Thoughts appreciated.

Thanks for any help.
