I want to give a domain name or three as a gift to a friend who blogs on WordPress. I'd like to include some unusual international TLDs, but is that a good idea?

A friend has a popular blog on WordPress. She's still using [blogname]wordpress.com, but has talked about registering her own domain name. This older AskMe
was really helpful, and I am inclined to use Name.com. I thought it would be neat to also register domains with international TLDs that make the English words in her blog name (bl.og and na.me). I can't reveal the blog name without ruining the surprise as she is a MeFite.
On to the questions:
1. Is there anything I should know about blogging on WP with your own domain?
2. Will it be easy for her to transfer ownership of the domain?
3. Is it a good or bad idea to get esoteric TLDs (such as .ge or .ee) that make nice English words, but might be a pain to renew every year?
