This looks to be mostly left overs from someone who enlarged and developed their own prints. I guess you need to ask yourself if the person your buying for wants to actually do their own traditional photo prints, or if they're someone who might want to develop their film, scan it with a good scanner and let the camera shop make prints on pro equipment. I would go out on a limb here and say your friend might need more in the way of developing tanks, thermometers, graduated cylinders, chemical bottles, pipettes and stuff like that. Check out for examples of stuff needed to develop negatives.

I'd say that batch of stuff is best left to someone who knows exactly what they are buying. Not a very "gift" idea there, unless you know that's exactly what they want.
