“Friends” fans have been waiting in anticipation for a reunion between the sitcom’s beloved cast members for what feels like years now, and their wishes are finally coming true on May 27 with HBO Max’s reunion special called “The One Where They Get Back Together,” in conjunction with the series’ 25th anniversary. The show’s relatively recent availability on streaming services like Amazon Prime, HBO Max, and previously, Netflix, has reignited a whole new generation of fans, meaning the highly promoted reunion, which they announced back at the beginning of 2020, is sure to rack in millions of viewers. It also means that the show is front of mind for “Friends” fans of all ages, who are likely thinking back to their favorite scenes from the timeless show. And what better way to indulge in the nostalgia than with fun “Friends”-themed gifts?
The quirky New York City friend group — consisting of Chandler Bing, Rachel Green, Monica Geller, Phoebe Buffay, Joey Tribbiani, and Ross Geller — offered viewers an endless amount of memorable one-liners, banter at Central Perk, quotable catchphrases, and plenty of relatable relationship drama (the show did coin the phrase “we were on a break,” after all). From a floor plan art print of Rachel-turned-Monica’s iconic apartment to a 3D rendering of the Central Perk coffeehouse, there’s something for every die-hard “Friends” enthusiast on your list.
‘Friends’ Peephole Picture Frame
This charming piece of Monica-inspired home decor will delight anyone who loves the classic sitcom.
Central Perk Oversized Coffee Mug
Any loyal “Friends” fan will appreciate this playful nod to the friend group’s favorite coffeeshop Central Park, where almost half the show’s episodes took place. They’ll feel like they’re right on Stage 24 at Warner Bros. studio while sipping their morning coffee, with the exception that they won’t be waiting on Gunther to bring them their order.
‘Friends’ Floor Plan Art Print
Even if your life savings couldn’t pay for an apartment as spacious as Monica and Chandler’s West Village abode, you can still appreciate it from afar with an artistic rendering of the iconic apartment’s floor plan. Any “Friends” fan would be proud to recognize the blueprint of the set, where most of the show’s best scenes took place.
Pivot Couch iPhone Case
One of the many iconic scenes from “Friends” shows up in Season 5, when Chandler and Rachel help Ross carry his new couch up the flight of stairs to his apartment. Ross’s exhausted screams of “Pivot, pivot, pivot!” throughout the tumultuous endeavor became one of the most memorable one-liners from the entire series, making it a fun inside joke-type reference for any accessory like a phone case.
‘Friends’ TV Magnets
Who doesn’t love some fun fridge magnets? This set of 25 magnets is perfect for holding up papers and pictures, while also containing hilarious references to the show’s most quotable one-liners (“How you doin’?”), recognizable props (Monica’s yellow peephole frame), and iconic scenes (one word: turkey-head).

You can’t go wrong with this classic gender-neutral tee with the show’s distinct vintage lettering. Made out of super-soft cotton, it can work as a casual everyday outfit or as a comfy oversized tee for bed.
Central Perk Shadowbox Diorama
Created by professional set designer and model-maker John Eslick, this 3D rendering of the Central Perk coffeehouse is a beautiful piece of art to hang anywhere in the house. From the cafe’s distinct logo to the cast members’ favorite orange couch, the impressive accuracy and hidden details in this thoughtful diorama make it an extra thoughtful gift.
