This is a set I started with quite a few years ago, and I still use every one of them today.

There are literally dozens of great carving knives available. I bought this one when I started carving, and still use it.

These tools are carving sharp right out of the box, but he’ll need something to keep them sharp. This is a good general sharpening aid.

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with Flexcut – just a satisfied customer. I also own other brands of gouges and knives. Carving tools are like potato chips: you can’t have just one…

...and for a final idea, get him one of these or something similar to pick up the wood chips:
