Someone I know is in the process of moving back to their county after a couple of years of post graduate study. The question is what would be the best souvenirs that one could buy here from the United States to take back?

Specifically he is looking for items (clothing, electronics, books, household items, symbolic items, etc.) that are uniquely American and hopefully not sold or found elsewhere. And also they need to be somewhat cheap (under $30, preferably $20 as he needs to get around 20-30 different items for his relatives and their kids), although he is open to the possibility of spending as much as $60-$100 if the item is unique and special enough.
If it helps, the county he is going back to is a middle eastern one that has cut economic contacts with the U.S. (which means that although officially United States does not export any products to this country, many of the items the one might find here could also be found over there).
