How can I make spices the most packable?

My brother is a vagabond ski-bum, who lives in a tree house in the summer, cooks on a camp stove, and lives off of oatmeal, rice and beans, ramen, cans of tuna, and PB+Js. He does not like "owning things."
I'm going to civilize him a little bit by sending him a selection of spices for Christmas. BUT they need to be able to kept in a backpack or in a shoebox or something, take up very little space and weight. Any suggestions on A. How to package them? and B) Which herbs and spices you think I MUST INCLUDE?

Right now, I'm thinking a selection of small ziplock baggies--like what you'd buy weed or beads in--but I'm not sure how to keep them together, or if there is a better way I'm not thinking of?
Bonus points for suggesting the most packable way to store Sriracha.
