Hmmm... that's an interesting pattern... It's one of those ones she'll either absolutely love, or... you know... be less-than-thrilled about. You know her best!
If you want to be safe, I'd go for the candle flame scarf. Make it longer than recommended, in a soft and bright yarn, and it goes with everything!
A little simpler than the scarf - it took me a couple of days for each glove (aka. knitting in the evenings). I wear them everywhere!
Maybe ask your brother for advice...
