Agreed that drier baked goods will ship better. Homemade biscotti would be excellent, and will help perk up the mediocre coffee he's sure to be stuck with. Chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies ship well because their moisture is tied up with lots of fat; just be sure to put them in plastic baggies with a paper towel so they don't grease up the box. ;) Also: dried fruit and jerky are awesome treats, and ship well. They can be a nice alternative (or supplement) to baked goods.

Anzac cookies were invented for this! It's an acronym for Australia New Zealand Army Corps and they got this name because they were invented by the wives of the corpmen as an answer to this problem. Give'm a google for a recipe. There are many variations to be found so look for more authentic ones. The ones that got me hooked were sold at an expresso stand my boyfriend and I would go to. They huge and hearty. We'd share one and be full for half a day working hard.
