Recently we put together this gift for our cousin. 
Ours consisted of a bug vacuum, a straw for sucking up whatever little creepy-crawlys you happen to find, a container, a pair of tweezers, and a half-gallon jar covered with cheesecloth.
                     Below are some book ideas: Pets in a Jar, Pet Bugs, and More Pet Bugs.
                                                        There are also a few links below.
                        Pet Bugs: A Kid's Guide to Catching and Keeping Touchable Insects 
      More Pet Bugs: A Kid's Guide to Catching and Keeping Insects and Other Small Creatures
                           Pets in a Jar: Collecting and Caring for Small Wild Animals
    Although almost any container will do, a jar would probably be your best option.  A cheesecloth           covering is great because it gives the animal a lot of air, and you also don't have to poke holes in all          
                                                                          of your lids.
