My vote goes for the Fuji e550. It can be simple, auto and go, or you can adjust all the standard manual features, including apature, shutter, white balance, photometry, and the like. The menus are very well layed out and intuitive. It is the average compact size, will fit in pant pocket. It has 4x optical zoom. Takes good indoor and outdoor picutres, though flash may cause red-eye in some instances, but this comes with all compacts. For video, it can record 640x480 @ 30FPS to fill up the chip. No other limit. The videos look very good for a still camera in this price range. Actually very usefull. Buy the camera on BuyDig.com or something similar, and you can get it between $250 and $300. Get an xD between 256MB and 1GB, and she should be all set.

Other solutions worth looking at:
Canon Powershot A95
Sony W1
and many others.
