My wife chose the S&W J frame 38 airweight. It all depends on YOUR WIFE, what is she most comfortable shooting. Is your wife going to shoot regularly and develop proficiency and familiarity with the Ruger?
My wife likes to shoot, IF I can ever get her to the range. For my wife the S&W is the better choice due to it's simplicity. Pick it up, aim it and pull the trigger, use both trigger fingers if necessary.
Let your wife choose HER gun! Either option discussed above is good. Don't forget Rugers LCP in .357 mag, your wife could practice with .38, but have .357 mag for HD/SD.
