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.
Looking at those cluttered countertops and that jumbled pantry it's hard to imagine any reasonable way of gaining back that control you once maintained and somehow surrendered slowly over time to the likes of a canister here, that sandwich maker there, the one that you just "had to have". We could go on and on, but the issue here is not the cause of the dilemma. Your focus needs to be on the remedy.
It's often said for those that have a desk job, that in order to work comfortably the desk needs to be free and clear of clutter. The same goes for the kitchen environment. Once you are able to organize all of your "extra" stuff into kitchen storage containers, you would be amazed at the productivity and efficiency that arises from it. Thankfully, because every kitchen is different, there is a wide variety of storage containers for the kitchen environment. Finding some that are suitable to your space is as easy as deciding on style.
