Meat Grinder for Christmas (Which model and recipes?)

I want to buy my mother a meat grinder for Christmas. I'm hoping to find a good one, but relatively cheap (under $100). It will probably be used infrequently. Can anyone recommend any models?
Also, my mother mainly cooks Chinese food. Other than making ground pork for wontons and stir fries, what other Asian-oriented recipes could she try with it? She doesn't make things like meatloaf, sausage, meatballs, or hamburgers, though my brother or I could make use of it for those applications. I could always teach her how to make these thing, of course. I am just trying to figure out if getting a meat grinder would be practical.
