question about telescopes

Any star gazers out there...
Wife wants a telescope, and don't know what she wants (neither do I, but I better get her the right one)

She wants to look at stars, planets, and maybe the sun (told her looking at the sun would make her go blind)
Looking to spend a couple hundred bucks (Her Christmas present, and I have to spend at least that much because I just ordered the 45 conversion kit for my P250 Sig Sauer for my Christmas present)

Now Darth don't go sending me links to info, because I probably wouldn't understand what I was reading anyway.:)
I would go for one of the long ones with lenses at the end of the tube to make things that are really far away look really close.
