Gifts for a manly boyfriend's 30th birthday - to be mailed to him. Ideas?

My boyfriend's 30th is in the 1st week of April, and he's currently on the other side of the country for a military training course until the 22nd. I'll be flying out to see him 2 weeks after his birthday (not earlier because of scheduling conflicts), and the week after that he's returning home to me, at which time his family will be in town for a big birthday celebration.
But I'd still like to send him a present for his actual birthday. Knowing him, the best options go in two directions - either something sweet and sentimental, or something rather manly, well-made, and useful. I'd like to keep the present under $75 and non-bulky, travels well. Please give me suggestions for either a) things I can make within 2 weeks, or b) items which I can procure online and have shipped to him.
I should mention that I already send him pretty scented letters at least once a week with little extras inside - he adores it, makes the other guys jealous like a bunch of office ladies crowding around the girl who just got delivered a huge bouquet. Besides baking, what else can I send to my guy that would make all the other guys jealous?
