Please recommend me the best gifts for my pasta-making friend.

My dear friend and her husband are enamored with the pasta attachment for their KitchenAid stand mixer. I'd like to buy them a Christmas gift that helps make their pasta dinners even more awesome... but I've never made pasta from scratch, and I don't know what that might be. So, hive, please recommend me your favorite pasta-related gifts. Do you swear by a particular cookbook, uncommon spices, a certain sort of flour, or etc.? Is the KitchenAid's ravioli attachment similarly fun, or do you find it ventures over into too laborious?
The only potentially sticky wicket: Whatever I buy must survive a few days to a week in the mail to get from me to them.
