If you physically buy her a gift card, she has to wait for it to arrive. You can get quick shipping so it's there right away. If you buy it on your account you also have to wait for it to come in the mail.
The only way to get around this is if you win a contest or something you can ask to be sent a gift card code instead of having the amount added to your point balance.
Ever since they made it so you can't transfer gift cards made with points from one account to another it's slowed things down a bit, but making it harder for people to point farm seems worth having to wait 2 days for a gift card.
