When choosing kitchen storage, specifically for the new home owner, there are two general types of ideas - the kinds of storage that are appropriate and needed in just about any kitchen, and those more suited to the individual kitchen and personalities of the owner. If you know the owner well, and have seen the new home (or pictures of the new home's kitchen), then consider a gift that specifically suits that kitchen. For example, you may have seen the kitchen, and noticed that it is small, and low on drawer and cupboard storage. Also, you know the home owner to be an avid cook, so you wonder to yourself where they will keep their spices. The perfect gift might be a magnetic spice rack, the type where a modern looking metal sheet is mounted on a wall, or inside a cabinet door, then neat, metal containers hold spices, magnetically stored away on the mounted metal sheet. Myriad such ideas for specific storage needs exist, and a walk through a home organizing store would reveal many ideas to suit any kitchen.
Any approach towards taming the beast that your kitchen has become needs to be measured, both figuratively, do not go overboard with your ideas, simplicity is better and primary to our equation, literally measure the existing space. After all, you can't fit a bowling ball into a marble pouch. When measuring the existing storage space available in your kitchen, focus more on the empty areas.
Anyone who ever said "a place for everything and everything in its place" clearly didn't have the same kitchens that we have to deal with. It requires the outside influence of some appropriate storage bins and kitchen storage to make your kitchen work for you.
