Question about iPhone as a gift?

in iPhone edited January 2014
I'm thinking of getting my wife an iPhone for Christmas and would like to have it ready to use when she opens it. Before going this direction, I have a few questions, hope you can help...

To set this up, we have the following:

1. iMac with all music, photos, etc

2. Three iPods (Touch, nano, shuffle) syncs with music, photos, apps

3. Macbook (hers, used mostly for browsing, email, etc - no photos, music)

Most of our music is from Amazon, so it can be transferred to the iPhone but doesn't the iPhone link to a certain computer? Should I connect it to her macbook first? Can the apps downloaded to the Touch be transferred to the iPhone?

It sounds simple, but really all I want is to have an activated iPhone, with music & photos ready go Christmas morning.

    Yes, the iPhone syncs to a particular computer. I would connect it to the iMac since that is where all your multimedia is at. You can manually have her setup her email on the iPhone when she opens it. I would move the apps to the iMac if they are not there already
