More than 16 years after its final episode aired, Friends is still one of the most popular sitcoms around—and every day, new fans are discovering the iconic '90s series, whether it's through reruns that play all day long on TV or by streaming the show on the new HBO Max service. That means that you either have a Friends fan in your life that you'll want to buy a surprise for—or maybe you just want to treat yourself. Either way, here are a few of our favorite Friends gifts.

1. Friends Box; $36 per box

CultureFly

If you’re looking for a Friends gift that keeps on giving, you’ve found it. The Friends Subscription Box from CultureFly provides a plethora of goodies quarterly, with its contents determined by a particular season of the hit TV show. In each box, you’ll find cool collectibles and signature items that you can’t find elsewhere, like a plush version of Marcel or a Central Perk fleece blanket.

2. Monica's Door Pool Float; $30

Paladone/Amazon

If you’re a true Friends fan, you know how necessary this pool float is. Shaped like Monica's trademark purple apartment door, this float measures in at over 55 inches long and features a peephole that's more than just a screen-accurate decoration—it actually works, allowing you to feel more like a Geller than ever.

Buy it: Amazon

3. Central Perk Ceramic Mug; $21

Silver Buffalo/Toynk

Central Perk is the epicenter of the Friends universe, so it’s only fitting to commemorate the gang's home away from home with this 24-ounce coffee mug that should hold enough java to get you through an entire episode.

4. "PIVOT!" T-Shirt; $23-$27

Hot Topic

One of Ross’s more undignified moments came during a failed attempt to get a humongous couch up a narrow staircase with Rachel and Chandler serving as helpers (though they could have really used the freakishly strong Monica). Now you can relive the infamous "pivot!" scene with this made-to-order shirt from Hot Topic, featuring an exasperated Ross front and center.

5. Smelly Cat Face Mask; $10

TeePublic

For all the diehard "Smelly Cat" fans out there, this is the perfect gift for 2020. Now you’ll be able to stay safe during the pandemic and still wear Friends-inspired merch in style. The mask comes in standard and double-pleated versions, and TeePublic will donate a medical-grade mask for every one of these that are purchased.

6. Friends Lip Balm; $9

Paladone/Amazon

They may not taste like a latte, but these Friends-themed lip balms are still authentic collectibles for fans of the series. Modeled after Central Perk to-go cups, the balms come in strawberry or vanilla flavors and stand at just 1.75 inches tall, making them perfect for slipping into a purse, backpack, or glove compartment.

Buy it: Amazon

7. Friends Trivia Game

Lacesi/Amazon

Do you remember Chandler’s middle name? How about how Rachel chipped her tooth in season 4? This trivia game features 342 questions stretched across topics from all 10 seasons of the show. And while the rules are simple, there is one requirement: You must be a Friends fanatic to come out on top.

Buy it: Amazon

8. Central Perk Neon Light; $40

Entertainment Earth

What better statement piece could there possibly be for a Friends fan? This light-up Central Perk sign would be right at home in the kitchen, living room, or just in a bedroom as a night light. No matter where this neon light is placed, it’s sure to liven up the place.

Buy it: Entertainment Earth

9. Friends Novelty Quote Socks; $17

Toynk

These comfy and colorful Friends ankle socks come in packs of five and feature a different slogan and graphic on each, so you can pick the perfect pair depending on your mood. Feeling affectionate? Go with the warm and fuzzy "You're my lobster." Not in the mood? Well, then opt for the classic "We were on a break!"
