I would suggest a Polaroid 195. Most people think they are junk and that film is not available.
In most cases they would be right about the "junk" part but the 195 is a full manual camera and Fuji is still making color film for it.
In the old days I would use it in place of a polaroid back since my Mamiya C-220 didn't have that option.
After shooting a few packs through it and having fun your friend might find a creative use for a camera like that.
If you look around you can probably get one for just a few bucks I did see one on fleabay that was going for over 100.00 with a lot of bids. I don't know what it eventually sold for.
