A decent headset (not necessarily expensive) is a must. I spent £300 on my David Clark that I am still using 5 years later.
Logbook is also important.
For the rest, as stated above, no need to buy extravangant trinkets when that money could be spent on actually flying an aeroplane.
My flight bag tends to be whatever receptacle happens to be lying around the house on the morning before a flight.
Re books, I bought the one recommended by my club but almost never read it.
Did all my theory training through (mainly free) websites as well as weekly lessons at the club provided by volunteers.
Always buy the laminated version of the 1: 500,000 chart, much easier for plotting.
