Doesn't take much to be prettier than most modern rifles.

If your daughter, or potentially your granddaughter will be using the rifle, you might want to stay on the light side, both in cartridge choice and rifle weight, certainly no 9-pounders. Anything that requires a learning curve or that's difficult to feed is out, unless she's interested in that stuff.

FWIW, I'd be looking at the new M70 Featherweights, especially if you can find one in the limited edition dark maple or upgraded wood. In used, consider two-lug Sako Foresters and Browning Low Walls in .243. Very nice specimens of both can be found, and workmanship is first-rate. Gonna be more than a grand, more like $1500, but worth it in both cases.

Another nice one that may appeal to a lady is the Hawkeye RSI.

Yes, any flavor of the 70 is on the table. A Featherweight in .308 or 6.5 if they make it might be a good consideration.
