Yes I've read about fans giving rather creative gifts. I'm sure the boys appreciate them. I'm so uncreative to come up with something artistic and original but it's great reading about some of the things the boys receive such as chickenkarma's dolls and she even made one for Kristen recently which was very well received :)

Oh and could you PM me your block kellysouthpaw, sorry to jump on the bandwagon but I'm very intrigued :D

All the quoting is making me dizzy.... :rolleyes:

I'd thought about making cookies/biscuits for them but not sure they'd actually eat them. :dunno:

Carol, the guitar picks and bringing them backstage before the show were my suggestions. :D Kelly was right! :thumb:

I was at the Comix show where they lost their picks. So, yeah, guitar picks!

I recommend Dunlop. The yellow ones (color=size).

A fan baked them cookies last year, handed them to Bret. A few shows later someone who knew her asked Jemaine if he enjoyed them but he said Bret horded them. This is one of the many reasons why one of my FOTC questions to James Bobin was - who is more likely to horde cookies, B or J? I wanted to suss out whether hording cookies was typical Bret behavior. :lol: But James said Jemaine was more likely to horde.

This whole post is making me smile quite inanely. I suspect that both boys can be opportunistic hoarders when there's freshly baked home-made cookies to be had. If I recall correctly, James said Bret was more of a toast slut. If anybody's thinking of bringing biscuits and wants to make sure Jemaine gets a look-in, you might have to distract B by wafting a thick buttery toasty slice in front of his nose.

Laura, I'm sure if you make 'em, they'll eat 'em. They're on the road and would probably shed a little tear of joy to eat something homey. I know I would.

I was briefly thinking of bringing Jemaine a cupcake from Magnolia Bakery since it's nearby and they are one of those rare things that live up to their hype and some. I eat one of those suckers and my eyes roll back in my head. :drool:

I'd like to bring them something cool and clever. Like handmade screenprinted tees of a rhino and a hippo or something. But I'm not very crafty. I've seen some pretty impressive fan gifts. Baking is something I could definitely do. I'm a bit hesitant though because the LA show is towards the end and by that time, they might be sick of all the sugar or other LA folk will bring them sweets as well. Tea, maybe? I could bring really good tea.

I bet they would LOVE tea!

I was going to make them kebabs ;) But that might be a hassle to transport. I still might do it though if I can find an authentic NZ recipe or something

Maybe it's just me, but I might be hesitant to eat food given to me by a total stranger. While the thought behind it is incredibly nice, there's always the risk of someone weird doing something weird to the food. Maybe give them the recipe instead! :lol:

I was just thinking the same thing Indigo.

It's too bad we live in a world where we all have to be so wary of things. Your recipe idea seems like a good idea.
Bret: Have been sheared.
Jemaine: Have been shorn.

Excellent idea!
There are people at my work who won't ever eat when we have potluck dinners due to being leery of other people's "cooking habits" and "cleanliness habits". And these are fellow co-workers!
So, good point. Yis, good point.

I'm not worried....they'll see it as a sweet gesture and either eat them or toss them ~OR~ they'll see it as an attempt at poisoning disguised as a sweet gesture and toss them. :rolleyes:

My cookie recipes are Top Secret.

I'm making them some cookies. :)
