Hopefully you found something that worked. I am assuming that you needed the present a while ago, but thought I would reply in case anyone else has the same thought.
The things I have that makes amigurumi much easier is this list:
Craft case (to store eyes etc. in)
Safety eyes (all sizes and different colors)
Steel crochet hooks (best for the smaller amigurumi)
Bag to store yarn in - I have a couple different ones so I can put the skeins of yarn I need for my project I am working on.
I also use milk crates to store my yarn. They stack nicely against a wall with the opening facing out for easy access.
Stitch savers - the kind that lock. Nothing like having a saver that will come out while you are in the middle of a round.
