Want to cook like all your Friends? This cookbook features all the best Friends-inspired recipes we love to drool over throughout the series, like Rachel’s English Trifle and Phoebe’s grandmother’s cookies. The cookbook has just been released, and it’s available on Amazon for a tasty $27. That’s a small price to pay for all this goodness!
This Friends slow cooker ($60) is perfect for serving a crowd at your next binge-watching party. We bet it would be perfect for making a big batch of Slow-Cooker Mashed Potatoes. The only thing you’ll have to decide is if they will have lumps like Mom’s or whipped with peas and onions a la Phoebe. They’re all out right now, but make sure to check back when they’re back on online shelves.
Could this set of cookie cutters ($8-12) BE any cuter? It’s perfect for that friend in your life who grew up playing “uncooked batter eater” with their Easy Bake Oven or dreamed of opening their very own “Easy Monica’s Bakery” when they grew up.
This is perfect for the Joey or Emma in your life who needs a “bedtime penguin pal” to sleep peacefully. A replica plush of Joey’s beloved Hugsy Doll ($65) comes complete with his signature hat, yellow vest, scarf and goggles. Trivia time: Can you remember the episode where the girls have a sleepover?
Only the most hardcore Friends fans will recognize this beautiful hand-painted Kosta Boda vase ($600) by renowned artist Ulrica Hydman-Vallien. It made a brief appearance on Monica’s kitchen counter in “The One with Monica and Chandler’s Wedding Part 1” during Season 7.
Another great find from Monica’s kitchen is this replica of her ceramic “Homemade 1¢ Pickles” utensil crock ($100), which is featured on her counter in almost every episode. It will look awesome in your friend’s kitchen as they prepare one of these Friends-inspired recipes.
Coffee and Friends just go hand-in-hand. We can hardly think of a better gift idea than one of these amazing coffee mugs ($15-25) from Pottery Barn’s Friends Collection. Get one for a friend and one for yourself to create your own Central Perk moment. You can sip your favorite coffee drinks together.
This amazing Friends LEGO Set ($100) will let your friend recreate one of the most iconic sets from the series. The level of detail that went into this set will surely impress. It includes everything from Phoebe’s guitar, the “reserved” placard for the coffee table and even an adorable Gunther figure complete with “hair brighter than the sun.”
We love the subtlety of this wall art ($36) that features a detailed floor plan of Monica’s apartment (please note the correct placement of the green ottoman). It’s perfect for those Friends watchers who love the show but don’t want their obsession to clash with their tasteful decor.
This vintage canvas print ($60) is just like the one that famously hung in Monica’s living room during all ten seasons of the show. Phoebe may have once suggested to Monica that she “get rid of that French poster” in favor of Gladys—an original work of art by Phoebe that features a creepy mannequin coming out of it—but we think we can all agree, Monica’s taste in art is much less haunting.
This adorable set of tea towels ($40) are part of Pottery Barn’s 25th Anniversary Collection for Friends. Featuring Rachel’s infamous English Trifle that “tastes like feet” and one of Joey’s foremost important rules regarding food, any Friends fan would love to hang these in their kitchen.
This adorable Friends-inspired baby onesie ($13) is a hilarious baby shower gift for the Friends person in your life with a little one on the way. We know Joey meant well when he said it after Monica’s jellyfish encounter, but somehow the sentiment is a lot cuter when written on a baby onesie.
It seems that almost every great show, including Friends, has had their characters immortalized by Funko. In fact, Funko released a second series of these Friends collectible figures ($13-85) due to their immense popularity among fans. We only hope that none of these figures include Krog’s Sonic Blaster Gun which Chandler proved was, in fact, a choking hazard.
