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.
You would be amazed at how much space you'll have in cupboards and drawers once you start utilizing the right kind of kitchen storage. It may seem like a daunting task at first but it will streamline the way you work within your kitchen. When you combine this method with other forms of kitchen storage (plastic bag dispensers, spice organizers, silver wear organizers) you'll find that you're much more at home in your own kitchen space. This kind of organization can have a profound impact on how "happy" you are to work within your kitchen space.
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.
