Gift of the orzhov or Felidar Umbra. just as long as she gets Lifelink.

Both being triggered effects, the tirgger being "when ~this~ dies" (basically), you would be able to stack the abilities as you wished. So stack the Avatar's ability first, then Gift's. Thanks to the "First In Last Out" nature of the almighty stack, Gift would return it to play, the Avatar's ability would do nothing (no shuffle as the rulings on this card specify), then EOT Gift would come back pending they are both still around by then.
