I just got John Kuprenas and (friend of the blog) Matt Frederick's 101 Things I Learned in Engineering School, and I absolutely love it. It concisely and elegantly summarizes the essential lessons you'll discover as an undergraduate science or engineering major. I plan to reference it frequently in my physics classes at Simpson next year. I highly recommend it as a gift for any recent engineering graduate. Also, check out the other books in Matt's 101 Things I Learned... series.
