Reducing CGT when gifting shares to wife and she selling them...

Hi there - looking for some advice on cutting CGT...

I'm looking to gifting some shares to my wife, who is not working currently, has rental income of £8k per year and no other income.  I'm looking to gift shares to her and leverage her 10% gains tax allowance.  I would like to know if there are any CGT thresholds - if I gift the shares to her and we work out the gains since I originally bought them - regardless of the gain amount she would only pay 10% for example, gains of £5k, £10k, £100k, £300k, £500k, etc - she would only pay 10% regardless of the gain amount?  Trying to understand if there are any thresholds we need to consider...

Any guidance would be great - :-)
