The Feds have no problem with her buying guns there but bringing/sending them to CA may have pitfalls (off roster guns) if still thinks of her as a resident. Guns entering CA would need to be registered. If it's truly a gift from her to you where you don't supply the idea/money it's not a straw purchase.

oplaw form -

Feds don't make distinction of spousal interstate transfer being exempt from FFL involvement -
Even if she could be considered a Ca resident by the state, it still has to pass through an FFL dealer in Ca. 27585 CPC requires her to send it to an FFL here before she can take possession of it here. The risks out weight the the gains here, to not get solid legal advise, or to just go the interstate transfer route.

27585. (a) Commencing January 1, 2015, a resident of this state shall not import into this state, bring into this state, or transport into this state, any firearm that the person purchased or otherwise obtained on or after January 1, 2015, from outside of this state unless the person first has that firearm delivered to a dealer in this state for delivery to that resident pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 27540 and Article 1 (commencing with Section 26700) and Article 2 (commencing with Section 26800) of Chapter 2.
