Maybe the right approach here is, instead of just letting the client pick a theme, you should select a theme that you think has the functionality that matches what the clients needs are. Then, as you said, you can customize the look and feel and add any extra functionality.
I would absolutely tell the client that your intention is to use a pre-made theme as a starting point for their site. What they are paying for in that case is your expertise in customizing the theme to fit their needs. Then, in that case, it doesn’t matter that the client can see the prices of the themes, instructions, etc. Just my two cents.
