How do I add Gmail to the share options, so that I can share stuff via Gmail rather than the Mail app?

I just got my wife a Mini, but I am more familiar with Android (all of my other iDevices are from previous generations). I am trying to figure out how she can share stuff from within apps to her Gmail account. She has not set up the built-in Mail app since she uses Gmail, but when she wants to share something out of Pinterest using her Gmail, it only gives her the option to share to Mail, and asks her to set up an account. I am sure there must be a way to share directly using Gmail, but I can't figure it out. Can we add Gmail as a "share" recipient somewhere in the iOS settings? Having the iOS Mail client somehow sync with Gmail will be way more complication than she wants. Thanks for any help!
