I bought my 9 year old daughter a cookbook a few months ago, and we've been making progress working our way through the book, picking and choosing one recipe at a time to complete every weekend. Some of our favorite new recipes have come from that "children's book."
If you're not sure what to get someone who is just starting to cook, look for things that can encourage them to try new things. Baking kits are always nice because it's a simplified way of trying recipes that could have seemed difficult at first glance, and the results are usually pretty tasty too.
Other great ideas include small accessories for the kitchen itself. Sharp new can openers, fun wall decor/signs, potted herbs for the kitchen window, etc., can all bring some joy depending on the audience.
