Beginner questions

About 2 years ago for Christmas I bought my wife a camera because she wanted to start getting into photography and she has never used it.  So now every occasion I'm going to buy her a new lens so she will either have to take it up or I'm going to start learning.

So the question is what lens should I buy?

The camera is a Nikkon D5600

And I bought 18-55mm and a 50-300mm lens to go with it. I don't know what my reasoning was and the time because I was working overnights then I can't really understand many of the decisions I made during that time.

I've read that a 35mm and a 50mm are pretty standard so I've got those on my list to buy. Is there anything else I need?

I or my wife will mainly be taking pictures of family, landscape/wildlife, and our animals at home, dogs and cats inside and horses outside.

Also what type of photo editing software do I need and can it be run off a basic laptop or will I need a dedicated GPU?

Thanks, any advice will be appreciated
