Probably depends a great deal upon what was in your "kit". Assuming your purchase was the body, "kit" lens,
charger, battery, software, instruction book and a sturdy box, I would recommend
1. a memory card - which almost never is included in your "kit". You'll need it just to get started.
2. a second battery - yours will always run short just when you need it.
3. a bag - whichever one you get will be wrong and you'll eventually have to replace it, and replace it and so on. So get one big enough to hold your stuff, maybe an additional lens and/or flash with a good shoulder strap.
4. a uv filter for each lens - for protection and it's easier to replace than the lens itself.
5. a lens cleaning kit - especially if you have children. Make sure it includes a blower/brush.
6. a book about your camera - since most of the instruction manuals are terrible. Then read it.
7. a subscription to a photo magazine to help give you ideas and technique advice
8. flowers or a box of candy for your spouse to apologize in advance for continuously sticking the camera in his/her face.
Now go take "pictures".
