Have you asked your mom if she has any desire to learn how to do charcoal? If she does, then the Egg would be a very thoughtful gift. If not, I'd stick with the gas grill, and I'd absolutely get her the Weber. Quality, very easy to use, if anything breaks--you're covered... no worries. I have the E310 with natural gas, and I love it. I use it a lot when I just want to do something quickly, but I also used it to smoke my T-day turkey. Just put a couple chunks in foil with slits in it, and put the turkey on the rotisserie. Came out fantastic. What's not to love?

Get the gas grill. Eggs are nice but heavy to move and a lot more work. And you need to use lump rather than briquets or the bottom will clog up with ash and residue pretty quick. And having to use lump means a lot stronger smoke taste/smell. Okay if that is what you like.
She will more than likely use the gas grill a lot more than the egg.

excellent choice. She will be able to get replacement parts many years later. That will be the last grill she will ever need.
