I did the shopping and found the .357 my wife wanted, set it up and took her down to the FFL's gun store. She did the test, the old HSC, DROS and waited. There really is no way to surprise someone with a gun as a gift in California. They are in the process from the first step.
I suppose one could wrap up a faux gun and toss it under the tree with a promise.
