Adobe Photoshop & illustrator! These are my main tools!
I love to save my vectors as photoshop shapes so I can retrieve them by opening the PS immediately!
Illustrator is stronger for vectors & photoshop is stronger for brushes effects & making 3D... At least that's how I use them :)

I use Inkscape. It's simple to learn and free (open source, download from internet). Bye, Rob.

What Jsternig said. Good tablets are the Wacom Intuitos series.

I would personally utilize Adobe Illustrator with a graphics tablet (you can get an inexpensive one for around $100 that should be fine for someone just getting into it). Illustrator is based on vector imagery, meaning if your wife one day decides she wants to put one of her illustrations on a billboard she can because vectors are scalable without losing quality since they are based on mathematical equations. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
