8 ‘Friends’ Inspired Gift Ideas For The Fan In Your Life

It’s undeniable that the TV show Friends is still one of the most beloved and talked-about shows of our generation. Whether you were a fan or not, you must admit that it’s still dominating pop culture with no sign of slowing down.

To celebrate the show premiere’s 25th anniversary in 2019, many companies are creating merchandise featuring the show. And with the holidays coming up I’m sure you need a few ideas of what to gift your very own friends.

Here are the best Friends-inspired gift suggestions for the year:

The Friends Eyeshadow Palette

For the beauty lover like Rachel Green, Hot Topic created a hilariously punny eyeshadow palette full of references from all 10 seasons. The shades are full of matte and glittery formulas and the names are even hilarious. Yes, they have shades named “You’re My Lobster” and “Pivot”. You can pick it up for $13.25 at Hot Topic.

The Iconic Peephole Picture Frame


These are a hot commodity and one of the more in-your-face Friends references on this list, which is why they are so special to find. They’re traditionally quite expensive on Amazon, but Entertainment Earth sells it currently the cheapest at $15.99. This frame claims, “I’ll be there for you, cuz you’re there for me too.”

Joey Tribbiani Sequin Pillow


Everyone can remember this iconic scene and Joey’s memorable face. So why not have this stylish throw pillow with a hidden secret for some of your guests to enjoy? It may be $28.99 on Etsy, but it’s the gift that keeps giving (the element of surprise that is).

Ross and Rachel Mug Set


If your lobster is the huge Friends fan, BoxLunch created Mr. Rachel and Mrs. Ross mugs based on the infamous wedding in Vegas episode. Some won’t get the reference if they haven’t seen the show, but everyone else who’s seen it will. And for $24.99 how could you not?

Central Perk Apron


For the chef Monica in your life, Bed, Bath and Beyond sells a hilariously cheeky Central Perk apron. They average at around $19.99 but sell out fast online and in store when they are in stock. So hurry up and grab them while you can!

The Classic Logo Apparel

Every major retailer and online store offers shirts, hoodies, crewnecks, and hats with the iconic Friends logo on them. You can find them in every color, size, and design. Traditionally,  shirts average at about $17, while items like hoodies cost closer to $30.

Central Perk Brew


Amazon is a great place, especially because you can order priceless gems like this. Hard to believe you can bring home your own coffee from the Central Perk for only $10.99! I don’t know if it’s any good, but it’s a unique gift that at minimum is a great kitchen decoration.

Central Perk Mug


And of course, no true Friends fan can go without having their own Central Perk mug to enjoy their coffee in. Stores like Marshalls, Winners, and Pottery Barn all make their own designs with different shaped mugs all for around $12-$15. There are also numerous online stores that create them as well. 

I know, could these products be any cuter? Luckily with many online sales you may even be able to get really good discounts and prices. Any of these items will be sure to have your Friend screaming “Oh. My. God.” just like Janice. Okay, maybe not quite, but they’ll certainly be screaming with joy.
