A replacement lens for a Canon 20D

What would be a good alternative all purpose lens for a "professional amateur" photographer who has a Canon 20D, currently equipped with only an EFS 18-55 ?

My girlfriend loves making pictures with her Canon 20D. For her birthday I'm considering a new lens. I know the EFS 18-55 doesn't perform that well when fully zoomed in. On our holiday we met someone who used a larger zoom range and an image stabilizer on her Sony Alpha 100 camera. What would be a good lens for my girlfriend to replace the EFS 18-55? Something all purpose, wider zoom range and maybe with an IS? Something up to $1000 I guess. Thanks for any insights!
