2 saucepans and a teapot from Amazon- but which type?

My wife is (sadly) moving across the country to (happily) work on a PhD, and since I'm not moving yet and we still have the apartment, we decided to outfit a kitchen for her with more basic stuff. We'd like to order some of the items so they'll be there the day after she arrives but not beforehand; in practical terms, that means order through Amazon with Amazon Prime, since the 2-day shipping will set things up perfectly. There are a few unopened things we have already, like knives, which we're sending, and a few others, like a Lodge skillet, which we know we want.

What we're still trying to figure out two main things: saucepans and a teapot. In terms of saucepans, she'd like something in the 1.5 quart range (perfect to make things like rice or oatmeal), and something larger, in the 4-5 quart range, for larger dishes and soups. We don't have a specific requirement for materials, though we do prefer a stainless (or possibly anodized) interior, rather than a non-stick interior. We have Calphalon Tri-Ply at home, but something a cheaper would be nice.

The other question is a teapot/teakettle. For her own reasons, she'd prefer a stovetop one. Here we have no idea what to look for, so any advice would also be welcome.

Thanks ahead of time for any help.
