    I would say:
    Utricularia
    Nepenthes
    Sarracenia
    Drosera
    Dionea
    Darlingtonia

    Of course it all depends on the species.

    Wow, you're most of you are clasifying Dionaeas as being pretty tough? But they're not so bad, aren't they? (Proof : Mine are still alive!) And Neps as relatively easy?
    Remember this is for inexperienced growers, and probably less motivated then the lot of you (who, I must admit, are quite impressive, keep it up!)
    Conclusion, I should advice them to get some Utricularias and Neps?!? Okay...

    Most of the terestrial Utrics are ultra easy such as U.livida,U.subulata,U.microcalyx. And alot of the Neps are real easy such as N.ventricosa,N.sanguinea,N.rafflesiana.

    Well in my opinion, I think that how easy they are to grow depends on who's growing them, where they are being grown, and the conditions that you have to grow them in. I've killed some plants that others call weeds (U.gibba). Even though I tried everything I could think of to keep it alive. I gave it all the "correct" conditions but it stills dies. On the other hand I grow some plants that people say are hard to grow. Some of these plants I just ignore and they thrive.
    BY me not knowing your location I would say let them try a capensis then maybe move up to a vft or pitcher plant. If you choose a pitcher plant start with a purpurea.

    Utrics are relatively easy and have some cool little flowers but you don't really get to see them eat.

    Ozzy is right. The easiest CPs are the ones that like the type of conditions you can easily provide. In much of the country, dioneae grow easily outdoors, as do many drosera.

    Where I'm from, I grow N. aristolochioides in my living room with no problems, but can't grow a lowlander to save my life. So, it depends on your conditions, although there are more and less tolerant species of all these cps!
