I own all but one of Gemmell's novels, (the infamous Ross Harding novel) And every single one of them was amazing. I read his Rigante when I was a young teen just getting into fantasy and they made me the reader and writer I am today. His way of showing and teaching bravery is just... I don't know, Awesome!
I've got a design for a D.G Tat ;) One day...

I have never read any of David Gemmell's books.

No wait! Before you shoot me, please help me! My local library has none, repeat, none of his books, which is the reason I've never read any of them. As a result of all the glowiness I've read about him on this website, I'd like to ask for one for Christmas. So... is there any particular book I should start with? And if there isn't, which one should be the first one I read?

There isn't really an order with them.  Most start with his debut Legend, and one that is still fondly regarded by most except this scrooge:

and some hack wrote a review of Morningstar which is excellent (a retelling of Robin Hood effectively)

I myself started with Sword in the Storm. Part 1 of his 4 piece series about the Rigante, Utter awesomness!
That is the book that he'll grab you with.
