Can you recommend a basic "drawing package" of art supplies?

I was fortunate enough to score a portable camera Lucida
via this Kickstarter project
. It is a Christmas present for my crafty SO.
I want to supplement the tool with a package of basic art supplies: paper, pencils, pastels, water colors. Nothing too advanced, just enough to allow him to explore his possible interest in the (very cool) equipment.
I've searched such kits but am kind of overwhelmed by the hundreds of choices, and would appreciate some guidance.

He has never drawn as far as I know. The goal here is to provide the basics for exploring his artistic interest.
(Using a sock puppet because he's a MeFite, and knows my posting name, though he doesn't spend time on AskMe.)
