A first aid kit is a good idea.  A needle, thread and spare button might be too.


Though unlikely to be needed in a city, another item I'd tend to add, thinking of first aid, would be a key chain tick removal spoon.  They are small and not expensive and remove ticks without squeezing them which is helpful not to get tick borne illnesses.

Good clothes and resume are a good idea. Presentations, internship interviews, concerts, ... Make sure he can iron if the clothes need it. He can probably borrow an iron but may not be able to convince someone to do the work for him.

I thought I'd mention that the U.S. has media mail for sending bound printed material at significantly cheaper rates than other types of packages.  If there are books that he will want at university but not over the U.S. summer / N.Z. winter, it might be worth bringing those along on this trip and having Grandma ship them at the beginning of the school year.
