Whether your kitchen is eight feet by eight feet or twenty feet by twenty feet, it needs organization. And thankfully, the tools for organizing your kitchen can be found in many sizes. If you have a smaller kitchen, some of the handiest kitchen storage items are shelf inserts, and over the door shelves. These maximize the storage capacity of each cabinet. I personally like the over the door holder for my aluminum foil and plastic wrap.
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.
Note that you need not completely fill your holder, so that it won't become difficult to get an item because it is stuffed too tight inside it. Avoid breaking a sweat and getting frustrated by using a caddy that is loosely packed to save you more time and effort, and increase your efficiency in the kitchen. It also helps to keep some ample space around the caddy so that you won't keep on knocking things each and every time time you want to grab a utensil. There should be ample headroom as well for easy access to the tools no matter where you are in the room.
