If you wish you could watch Friends 24/7, don’t worry—we’re right there with you. To ease the pain of waiting to stream Friends on HBO Max in May (and to catch the unscripted special featuring the entire cast), this Central Perk sign will make you feel like you’re one of the gang.

Listed at $40 on Urban Outfitters, this LED sign with neon lighting can be mounted to the wall or displayed freestanding on its own, so there's no need to “PIVOT!” when you want to change up your décor. And at 12 inches across and 6 inches tall, it’s small enough that it can fit in any space. USB-powered and with a wipe-clean surface, even someone with Rachel’s waitressing ability can keep it looking shiny.

But no sign alone can bring Central Perk to your home. Complete the look with these trivia coasters, which are $10 for a set of 20 on Urban Outfitters. Each hardboard coaster features two trivia questions—a "Fan" question and a "Superfan" question—along with the answers. For nights when you just want to stay in and pretend like you’re in a periwinkle apartment of your very own, these coasters are even more entertaining than that time Monica wore a turkey on her head.

To up your fan game even more, Urban Outfitters has a Friends pet tee for $17, so, like the product description says, your pooch can channel “their inner Phoebe, Monica, Chandler, Joey, Ross, or Rachel any day of the week.” It’s made of a stretch jersey knit fabric and is machine washable, so your furry friend and their Friends tee never have to go on a break.

There are some days when even the Friends gang has to leave their apartments to join the real world, and you do, too. That’s why Urban has these adorable Friends keychains for only $8 each. Made of PVC and metal, they come in an assortment of characters (Marcel!) and designs—and Urban will choose one for you at random, so you’ll get a fun surprise in the mail.

Think for a moment about how many private interactions you have on the internet. Saved passwords, credit card information, private conversations, medical records— almost your entire identity. Protect your privacy and identity across five devices for under $40 with a lifetime VPN from KeepSolid, which provides you peace of mind to continue using online conveniences without fear, bandwidth limits, or geographic restrictions.

Daily protection is extremely important when almost every transaction is made online. Groceries, movies, games, bills, and so much more are all paid for online with your personal and accessible information—but the concern doesn’t stop with others’ access to you. What happens when you’re restricted from accessing parts of the internet yourself? KeepSolid VPN Unlimited will also bypass censorship to allow you access to any site you’d like. This comes in handy when you’re traveling abroad in countries that restrict access to sites like Facebook.

More than 10 million customers globally have trusted KeepSolid VPN Unlimited with their internet access, identity, and privacy without compromised browsing speeds or the danger of leaving data exposed to theft and fraud. If the reviews of the general public don’t sway you, perhaps the military-grade AES 256-bit encryption will (that’s cybersecurity lingo for very secure).

While Keepsolid VPN Unlimited can't keep your fingers from accidentally sending that Snapchat to the wrong person (that’s on you), it can protect you from the privacy violations that are out of your control and often go undetected. Add the best VPN to your cybersecurity toolkit at the sale price of $39, and enjoy a massive selection of servers worldwide, a rich variety of VPN protocols, and much more to keep hackers out of your sensitive data for a lifetime.
