But it will depend on which actual grip you have.
I use iron sights on my AR so for me the cleaning kit is most useful, but if I used battery powered optics, I'd really appreciate the ability to have spares on my rifle at all times..
Depending on what grip you actually have, I could see something like an insert with armorer tools, or a new bolt/firing pin (just the bolt itself and the pin, not the carrier/BCG). I also know several guys who use that space to hold a copy of their NFA paperwork for the gun, but that's not exactly something you can gift to a friend.
But you could put spare batteries, a bolt, lube, bore snake, a few spare rounds of 5.56, sight tool, tea packets (if it's a rifle he'll carry a lot and want something hot on a cold day) etc..
Magpul makes a grip insert that can hold a bolt, firing pin, cam pin, and retainer pin that fits their grip.
Nothing is more useful either.
Like the guy at gym that asked which machine impressed the ladies the most, that'd be the ATM.
I say just pick a couple simple items that would go well with the rifle, like an allen wrench or screwdriver sized to fit scope mounts or such.
Because most people don't think about grip storage and this would spark his own interest in the subject.
If you actually shoot your rifle these will be the handiest most useful things you can carry
