If your talking about the Maytag Gemini free-standing double oven range, I have no personal experience with using them but these are my impressions.
The main lower oven would be too low for me to use on a regular basis. It looks like stooping would be involved getting things in and out of it. The upper smaller oven looks perfect for TV dinners and frozen pizza, etc. if your family cooks lots of them.

I would humbly suggest you don't but instead allow her a choice in selection if you expect her to use it with enthusiasm. Also, generally speaking appliances don't make good Mothers Day presents if that's what you had in mind.
