I am in the process of creating what I refer to as the “Move Out” tool kit for my two sons that I will give to them when they move out “permanently” for the first time (I don’t count the dorm at college where my oldest lives at the moment). I am including the same things you have listed. Basic wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers, hammer, pliers & drill. In addition, I am planning to include some chisels (with strong instructions not to use them for a pry bar), a block plane, coping saw and a tool box sized hand saw. A lot of items could be built with that little tool kit.
