not sure if this has been touched on already,

but ive got this buddy who has recently decided to take up smoking to "get rid of his problems"
he knows i disagree with his habit, so i want to make some sort of stoner in a box?
as a sort of subtle way to remind him.

but the only thing i can think of is like...
snacks and stuff for the munchies.


ahhh because i dont smoke.
sooo would anyone have any ideas?

An entirely new "__in a box", unlike any I've noticed...how can I not ponder the possibilities?

Cheap cologne to cover up the smell? Or second-rate, noxious incense....A jumbo bottle of laundry detergent....Dark glasses to hide bloodshot eyes...

a bottle of mt dew (seems to be the drink of choice for the cotton mouth), a square of tin foil (probably 4-6in), eye drops (to get the red out), small ziplock bags (think jewelry bags to hold beads) to divide his stash.  That's all I can think of.  Most of my friends have outgrown the stoner stage.

I was thinking, as i listed items, that this could be seen as approval/support of his habit.

I thought about making my boyfriend 'guava in a box' for Christmas.
So far I've come up with:

Rockstar Guava energy drink (his fav)
Ween- Pure Guava cd (one of his fav bands, but he doesn't own that cd anymore)
and a can of Guava nectar

Anyone know of any other guava things that are easy to get a hold of?

Thanks both of you =]
Ahh, the boys even got a pipe now.
But uhh, so I shall include:
Glasses, I'll get like cheapo oness.
Munchies, Chips and Soda [Mt. Dew?].
Cologne, again probably some cheapo yucky smelling stuff.
Incense too.

And I think the theme will be "Be a Quitter."
Cheesy Yeah?

I wanted to through in some like stickers and whatnot
But his parents can't know what it's reffering to if they see it.
Because, well we're merely 10th graders.

Anything else I should throw in?
Im gonna leave out the eye drops and ziplock baggies cause I know those are things he already has.
What was the tinfoil for?

You could always toss in some incense. You could also make a pretty "roach clip".

this place has guava syrup and guava jelly
http://www.localharvest.org/store/item.jsp?id=58
this place sells guava wood for barbecuing
http://www.hawaiiguava.com/
guava jelly
http://www.caribcon.com/guavajelly.html
look for this brand in your grocery or google for online retailers
http://www.smuckers.com/fg/pds/prod_info.asp?brandID=8&catID=257&prodID=468
there is guava paste available online and possibly in grocery stores or gourmet shops depending upon where you live, here you can literally drive down the street and pick guavas up off the ground.
http://store.cubanfoodguy.com/product_info.php?products_id=77
there is a Bob Marley song called Guava Jelly
http://www.tsrocks.com/b/bob_marley_texts/guava_jelly.html
dried guava
http://www.nutsonline.com/driedfruit/guava.html
monin makes guava syrup, check your gourmet, coffee and restaurant supply stores
http://www.monin.com/us/en/syrup_guava.php
If you can get fresh guavas, here is a recipe (it may even work with guava nectar)

http://drinkswap.com/drinks/detail.asp?recipe_id=3735
http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/guava-margaritas
you could type up recipe cards for these?

this stir fry sauce on the webpage has a store locator
http://www.7paths.com/guava-sweet-sour-stir-fry-sauce.aspx

I think it's tropicana that has a juice with guava in it in the refrigerated section at the grocery store.  My hubby turned me on to how incredible it is over vanilla ice cream as a float. OMIGOD!   I really did NOT need to know that, but now I feel compelled to spread the evil.... Cheesy
