The holiday season is in full swing! But shopping can be an intimidating prospect, so to help you out TVLine is rounding up the best Friends TV show gifts to give this year. (Because who doesn’t love Friends?!)
More from TVLine
We’ve included fan merch inspired by the gang’s favorite coffee shop hangout, Central Perk; we’ve got Friends editions of classic games like Monopoly, UNO and Clue; and we even found a sweatshirt for a fictional record label inspired by Phoebe’s “Smelly Cat” song! If you know someone who likes the legendary sitcom, you’ll find something for them here.
And sometimes the best gifts for Friends fans are so niche you might not even understand them! Why is that couch-shaped dog toy emblazoned with the word “Pivot!”? What does a lobster have to do with a group of six pals running around New York City? Were Ross and Rachel on a break… from what?! If questions like these arise while scrolling through our Friends TV show gifts list, rest assured that we’re in on the joke and the Friends fan in your life will be, too.
So scroll through our list of the best gifts for Friends fans to find home decor trinkets, games, toys, pet accessories and more, all inspired by the show!
