Point and Shoot for Family?

I am looking into a point and shoot for my mother, for an Easter present. It would be mostly for close-ups on people and scenery on vacations. I would like it to be less than $300, and it needs to be somewhat poratable. Video is wanted, but not needed. Thanks for help!!!

I have just purchased a Nikon AW100 for my daughter. Its a cracking little point and shoot, produces some excellent photographs AND.... ( drum roll )

Its water proof / shock proof. Remarkable little piece of kit.

Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 is lots of fun.

Caveat about the screen in bright sunlight, also about battery stamina.

The camera has a glasses-free 3D screen, and HDMI out that you can use with a 3DTV, and it can record both a 2D and 3D file at the same time. Fujifilm also has a 3D prints service.
