Ink on Paper Drawings — What Materials to Use?

I'm a doodler that likes to make abstract drawings. I'm interested in actually spending some time "doodling with purpose" with an eye toward making something(s), eventually, that might be worth hanging, framed on my wall. I primarily do black ink on white paper. What kind of ink/pens should I be using? What kind of paper?

Sketchy on the Details

My sibling is getting really into sketching/pencil drawing. My other sibling and I want to get her some good art supplies for Christmas; a nice leather refillable sketchbook, a pencil set, and some paper. The problem is that neither of us knows the first thing about art and drawing paper. What's the best kind of paper to use for pencil/charcoal drawings, and where is a good place to order some online?

Reverse graph paper notebook?

I am looking for a particular reverse graph paper notebook company I read about some time ago. The idea of the graph paper was that it was reversed out - that is, white gridlines and slightly darker blocks. The theory was it made photocopying or scanning your work easier. [more inside]
