What does a new minister need to start their job? Stoles, robes, books? What has been helpful for you?

I have two close friends who will be graduating from seminary and joining the ministry (UU specifically) in the next couple of years.
I'm really excited for them and want to mark the occasion with special, useful gifts that they'd have a hard time funding themselves.
I will probably take up a small collection for them, so something around $300 would be reasonable.
Anyone have any ideas? I can ask them but I'd like it to be a surprise if possible.
It would be okay if they got the same thing if there's something obvious that they'll both need, but ideally I would find two different things that were about equal in value.
