MAKE's Chemistry Gift Guide
At the MAKE magazine website they have a well-rounded if nostalgic collection of chemistry books and sets for "the next generation of chemists." A lot of glassware if you're into that sort of thing; I was very happy using plastic cups and spoons. Worth browsing.
(And if you want to send my family a little holiday cheer, and maybe save a little money, come back here and buy the items you see at MAKE from my Amazon store. Those little kickbacks I get when you click through from my websites are appreciated!)
The Thames and Konos Chem C3000 chemistry set -- probably the best you can buy at the moment, though still less complete than chemistry sets of the 50s and 60s -- is $50 cheaper at Amazon.
