I have a jacket with a light-strip that goes across the middle of my back (with steady or blink mode). It's a few years old, so the strip is likely less flexible and bright, and definitely larger, than what you show here. Despite this, I don't find it uncomfortable/annoying in any way when I ride. I usually save using it for rainy/snowy/foggy evenings. I've gotten a lot of comments on how noticeable it is.
On the other hand, I paid more like $20 for mine (on clearance), vs. the $155 they list for that one. I'd say if you can get the price down to less than $100, it makes a nice gift item - especially if she might use it for additional activities like jogging or walking at night.
EDIT: here is a poor-quality cameraphone picture of the jacket:
