Hey Winfred,

Why not just involve your wife? Is this a surprise present?
What country are you in? Is new that important? How does she choose what she likes?

Linberyl's Pakit is probably one of the best smaller folders to ride, but would be expensive outside NA.

In England, a used Brompton would be a no brainer. You can upgrade with lighter parts over time.

The Tyrell Ive is also on my short list. Fairly compact. Well thought out. Made in Japan. Uses standard parts.

The Carryme was surprisingly fun with good ride quality, but she may not like the looks. Very compact.

Or you can go cheap and get a small dahon. It will work, and let her appreciate a better folder in the future.
