Default suggestions for new p&s camera

Hi all!
I want to get a new p&s camera for my sister's birthday.
I have the Canon PowerShot SD880 IS and I like it: IMHO it's a great camera and it's fit for me. I'm looking for a camera like the SD880, but it's discontinued.
What camera could I give to my sister?
Any suggestion?
The S100, LX5, & ZX-1 are very pricey. My budget is 200-250-300$ (max)
I'm looking for a camera with good IQ, manual controls aren't indispensable because my sister is a newbie, but a friendly interface and good auto mode are essential
What do you think about the Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS?
And about the Canon ELPH 310 HS or Canon ELPH 300 HS?
Thanks in advance for your help

The 3 you mention are fine little cameras- all featuring the latest CMOS type sensors- and in the case of the 4000IS- a fast f/2.0 lens(albeit at wide angle),potentially yielding improved low light/indoor performance...
