Iggy: Cigarettes and coffee, man, that's a combination.
Tom: The beauty of quitting is, now that I've quit, I can have one, 'cause I've quit.
Iggy: I feel sorry for all those suckers, still puffing away.
Tom: Music and medicine, I'm living in a place where they overlap.

What a fantastic film, huh? Well, this swap is less about the actual film and more about the general pastime, coffee and cigarettes.

What's recommended before considering joining this swap?
- that you drink coffee and smoke cigarettes & sometimes, simultaneously.

And now, what's required of you to send your partner:

  1. Something smoking related:

-rolling papers
-tiny ashtray
-cigarette holder
-matches -cigarette case

&2. Something coffee related:

-actual coffee beans
-coffee filters
-sweet compliments to coffee (chocolate, etc.)
-be creative! (I'll add items if there's any suggestions in the comments)

&&3. Make something creative dealing with the overall theme:

-make your partner a mix that would serve as a lovely soundtrack to the morning cup and cig
-create some form of artwork (zine, painting, etc.)
-crochet/knit your partner a cozy for their reusable mug while on the go!
-draw a scene from coffee and cigarettes, the film

So, at least one item from each category
(1. smoking, 2. coffee, 3. creative)

Sky's the limit! Have fun with this.. ;)

ya know what would be fun for this swap is if you get a partner from another country to swap a pack of cigarettes with them lol

caution fancylady, FYI it is illegal to send tobacco products through the mail

thefancyladygourmet 01/ 8/2012 #

i have sent them out of the country before , it kinda worries me that the post office rarely checks whats in packages

Ugh, please don't remind me. =[ =[

I quit six weeks ago and despite not having seen the film, reading that "the beauty of quitting is, now that I've quit, I can have one, 'cause I've quit!" made me wonder if maybe I could have coffee and a cigarette again for this swap. Doh!

Enjoy your swap!

I think is is such an awesome and creative idea for a swap!!

I don't believe shipping one pack of cigarettes is illegal. It all depends on your home country's import laws. I've talked to my postmistress here in the US and she said that it wouldn't be a problem for me to get a pack. She warned me of sending tho.

what is cigarettes holder??? what you mean?

theannieHall 01/17/2012 #

A cigarette holder is a la audrey hepburn back in breakfast at tiffany's to avoid smoke smell on your fingers and is classy.

also, a cigarette case is a durable case to put your cigarettes into instead of the paper pack they come in.

all of these goodies are available at good prices on various etsy shops.
