What goes in a care package to Kyrgyzstan?

Ideas for a care package for a Peace Corps volunteer in Kyrgyzstan? I'd like to keep it open for many different types of suggestions, but perhaps the fact that he is 24 year old male from Northern California is relevant. Anyone know what kinds of things he'll be missing while he's stuck there for two years?

PeaceCorps and Missions

I'm graduating next May with a degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. I have NO desire to go to grad school right now and am consequently considering joining the Peace Corps or something of the equivalent upon graduation. Does anyone have any experience in Peace/AmeriCorps or any experience in lengthy mission trips through other resources? Do any of these degrees allow me to offer what I've learned in my field?
The longest I've been on a mission trip is a month and I thoroughly enjoyed it. However, I would prefer an organization where I work with a set team and get to know the people beforehand (I've had bad experiences otherwise).
