BTW all she's ask for on Christmas is to have a tree to decorate and Christmas music, what she doesn't know is that there'll be more than that!

Blackmamba, any chance I could get adopted into your family before next Christmas? What you're doing is really nice and your sister is very lucky to have you as a brother.
My input on the subject would be go along the same lines as knucklehead and zieglj. If this is the first good AV gear your sister has ever had then who knows where she might want to take it in a year or two. If you go with a soundbar and no AVR then she will be very limited on her expansion options unless she wants to drop some extra cash herself. But if she has a 5.1 AVR she can easily upgrade the speakers and subwoofer as she is able through time (if she gets the bug to do so).
That said, I think that the Denon/Boston system linked above would be a great way to achieve your goal and give her the best options for future upgrades.
