Prosperity brings a lot of cools stuff to the party, and a lot of folks think it is the best single expansion.

For more complex play intrigue would get it done. Some Great cards but the do this or that or that nature of many of them isn't for everyone. For people who find vanilla dominion boring or too straight forward, intrigue is the way to go.

Seaside introduces the duration mechanic, and some very cool cards. I used to say this and prosperity were the best expansions if you favored light play. Now I think hinterlands might be vying for seaside's spot. I haven't played hinterlands enough, but I think it would be a good early expansion for new dominion players.

So if they are looking for more complexity then intrigue is a good bet. Otherwise choose among
prosperity. --platinum and the colony victory card. Plus fun treasure cards.
Seaside. --duration mechanic, some very interesting and powerful cards.
Hinterlands --a good variety of cards.

Intrigue and Prosperity. Seaside is okay, but Intrigue really takes the base game to the next level, in my opinion, and from there Prosperity just make the whole thing shine.

Seconding Intrigue and Prosperity. I feel as if Intrigue has more of a variety than Seaside.

And actually Dark Ages is one of my favorite expansions but probably not one I'd recommend for beginners.
