Items for the class (note, these are affiliate links).
Extra items to consider:
A “Standbagger” for your gear. I have several for my big stands, but I love my two Standbagger “Grab-N-Go” bags for small flash work. You can see the entire Standbagger line here.
Flashmeter (light meter that can measure ambient light as well as flash).
