Gifts question

Looking for pointers:

We have a good friend from Japan who has her son moving out and starting his first in-field career job. Anyone know what sort of gifts are appropriate? Don't want to be the clueless American sending a toaster or something equally silly.
"Brakes??? What Brakes???"
