A few ideas (remember that with telephoto lenses, the DX size advantage mostly goes away, so those tend to be FX lenses):

Nikon 16-85 DX VR: Great mid-zoom on DX, good for landscapes at the wide end.

Voightlander 58 mm f/1.4 manual focus: perfect DX portrait.

Nikon 70-300 G VR: Great for outdoor sports, but a bit slow for indoors (although not un-usable indoors).

Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR: For indoor sports, this is the one, the f/2.8 goes a long way to helping shutter speeds in low light.

The 50 mm and 85 mm f/1.8 primes are also fun lenses, but their range is a bit odd on DX. That said, I'm very fond of my 85 f/1.8.
