In brief: Not that I know of

Nothing really in particular that i know of.
Kleptomania can land a person in jail, so i recommend help for someone with such a condition.

In brief: Worthless things

Kleptomaniacs do not steal items for personal use or for their monetary value.
People that do that are simply called thieves. Consequently, kleptomaniacs often steal items with little intrinsic value and may even discard the item afterwards.
