We wrote several blog posts on Magento Extensions based on the needs. It depends on your goals and what you are trying to accomplish. Anything from SEO to order management, etc. Perhaps you even need integration into different systems like POS or ERP? Hopefully this will give you a good idea of some for various needs:

Hi, thanks for opening a great topic!

Our clients consider these extensions most useful:

* Gift cards extension
Key features:
- Gift Cards statistic in the admin panel
- Email, Print-out, Send by Post Offices gift card types available
- fixed price / price range / predefined prices
- delivery date specification
- gift card preview
- multiple gift cards generation in admin panel
and other great features

* Gift registry
Key features:
- ability to share registry on twitter and facebook
- private registries functionality
- add a photo to a gift registry page
- set/change the number of ‘desired’ and ‘received’ items
- set the priority of each item
- product list can be sorted
and that’s not all : )

* Customer group prices
One of the best extensions actually.
Features:

- ability to export/import special prices for customer groups
- supports Catalog Price Rules for Simple and Configurable products
- bulk update of the prices of all products for particular customer group
- configurable products
- tier prices
- export/import prices for all customer groups
read more on site.

* Wedding registry
is awesome ( smile at least our customers say so)
Features:
- create/ full edit/ delete registry through admin panel
- share wedding registry on twitter and facebook
- products may be added from product pages, catalog page and search results page.
- registry owners are free to set or change the number of ‘desired’ items and the number of ‘received’ items
- set the priority of each item
and many other really useful features.

* One step checkout
This one is a real breakthrough!
- no need to create an account
- shipping is merged into one step and goes before chekout, so your customers be aware of it before paying
- billing address and payment method is merged into a single step
- super easy embedded registration
but you’ll probably want to get a full picture of the extension here

Hope this reply will be helpful!

If you are looking for a cool extension to try for free, download Signifyd’s new anti-fraud Magento extension.

Signifyd scores every transaction and then explains their score with an impressive level of analysis that they collect from their connections to social networks, cross merchant records and location services to verify who the real card holder is and their connection to the order they may have placed on your website.

The amount of consumer information you receive alone is worth trying Signifyd out, but coupled with their fraud services it is amazing!
