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.

Other Friends keychains include Ross, Monica, and Marcel.Urban Outfitters

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.

Looking to Downsize? You Can Buy a 5-Room DIY Cabin on Amazon for Less Than $33,000

Five rooms of one's own.
Five rooms of one's own.

If you’ve already mastered DIY houses for birds and dogs, maybe it’s time you built one for yourself.

As Simplemost reports, there are a number of house kits that you can order on Amazon, and the Allwood Avalon Cabin Kit is one of the quaintest—and, at $32,990, most affordable—options. The 540-square-foot structure has enough space for a kitchen, a bathroom, a bedroom, and a sitting room—and there’s an additional 218-square-foot loft with the potential to be the coziest reading nook of all time.

You can opt for three larger rooms if you're willing to skip the kitchen and bathroom.Allwood/Amazon

The construction process might not be a great idea for someone who’s never picked up a hammer, but you don’t need an architectural degree to tackle it. Step-by-step instructions and all materials are included, so it’s a little like a high-level IKEA project. According to the Amazon listing, it takes two adults about a week to complete. Since the Nordic wood walls are reinforced with steel rods, the house can withstand winds up to 120 mph, and you can pay an extra $1000 to upgrade from double-glass windows and doors to triple-glass for added fortification.

Sadly, the cool ceiling lamp is not included.Allwood/Amazon

Though everything you need for the shell of the house comes in the kit, you will need to purchase whatever goes inside it: toilet, shower, sink, stove, insulation, and all other furnishings. You can also customize the blueprint to fit your own plans for the space; maybe, for example, you’re going to use the house as a small event venue, and you’d rather have two or three large, airy rooms and no kitchen or bedroom.
