There are lots of good answers here,,,,tripod, flash, fast prime, extra memory cards/batteries...etc.
I have all of the above, and then some, but I use them very little compared to the following two "accessories" that I use all the time.
1. A quality bag - you need a good bag for transporting and protecting your gear while traveling to and from your shooting location, and while you're at the shooting location. Also, a good bag will allow you to conveniently carry multiple pieces of equipment or accessories.
2. A good photo editing/management program like Lightroom or Aperture.
If you don't have either of these, then one or both is a good place to start.
If you have both already, then I would suggest a flash, or one of the more affordable prime lenses like the 50mm 1.8, 50 1.4, or the 85 1.8.
