What whole spices do you keep on hand?

I got a Kuhn Rikon vase spice grinder for Christmas, and imagined myself having a drawer full of those little insert containers loaded with a multitude of exotic spices available for grinding fresh whenever the mood or the recipe would strike. But, now that I am thinking about what I want, I'm a little lost. Besides pepper, what are the best spices to keep on hand whole, and can be ground for use in what is essentially a pepper mill? I know I can use it for sea salt and thought of coriander seeds.

What would you keep on hand? Cloves? Cardamom? Aleppo pepper?
