What does a young foodie/recent grad need in his kitchen?

My friend and I recently graduated from a small liberal arts school on the West Coast. He took a job in San Francisco and moved into a tiny apartment in the city (read: he is now broke). I want to get him a nice apartment warming gift, but I am at a loss, so I was wondering, for the experienced people out there: What kitchen item do you wish you had possessed when you were first starting out, when you had nothing but a pot or two, a fork, and a spoon? What does my boy, a serious eater indeed, need in his life?
