Gift Ideas For Friends Fans: 13 Great Friends Gifts For Fans Of The Beloved TV Show
They won't know you knew to give them such awesome gifts.
Sometimes, as the holiday season approaches, it can be difficult to think of the perfect gift ideas for your friends. However, it is not quite as hard to figure out what to give friends who are fans of the TV show Friends. Case in point, the following list of the best Friends gifts now available online which we have curated for you, starting with one item that could not be more perfect for a pet owner in your life.
Friends “Pivot!” Dog Toy
Give your loved one the gift of being able to make a Friends fan out of their own pet with this cuddly plush toy with a built-in squeaker. Amazon actually has several great examples of stuffed pet toys to choose from, but our personal favorite is this 10,” orange sofa with one of the most recognizable Friends inside jokes of all time: “Pivot!” - an instruction Ross Gellar (David Schwimmer) gives his pals ad nauseam as they struggle to bring his new couch up the stairs.

Friends “Crap Bag” Canvas Tote
Perhaps if you chose to get your loved one all of the great Friends-centric dog toys available, you could also get them this durable, spacious, cotton canvas tote to carry them with for trips to the dog park or all kinds of other uses. What makes this gift special (which comes in white or black) is its reference to another hilarious Friends quote spoken when Mike (Paul Rudd) - upon learning his wife, Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) changed her name to Princess Consuela Banana Hammock - decides he wants to be called “Crap Bag” from now on.

Monica’s Door Pool Float Lounger
Your loved one could also use their “Crap Bag” to hold their things while they they take a load off at the pool or in a lake. What better way for a Friends fan to do so than with this inflatable floating raft that resembles the iconic door to Monica Gellar’s (Courteney Cox) apartment - complete with a transparent peephole.

Monica’s Peephole Frame Replica
If - instead of an inflatable replica of Monica’s door - your loved one would rather have the real thing in their home, we also have you covered on that front. All you need to get them is some purple paint and this gold, easy-to-hang frame that will fit perfectly around a peephole just like you have seen on Friends.

Monica’s Doorbell Replica
The only thing left that your loved one will need to complete their own recreation of Monica’s famous door on Friends is this recreation of her fancy doorbell cover. The metallic gold, plastic replica measure 3.14” in diameter, 1.2” thick, and applies easy with included 3M adhesive.

Monica’s Yellow Peephole Frame Replica Picture Frame

Manufactured by Silver Buffalo, the 4”x6” frame resembles Monica’s aforementioned peephole frame, which you could also hang on your door or keep propped up on a nightstand or shelf.

Friends Lego Sets
Another more simple way for your loved one to live out their fantasy of owning Monica’s apartment is giving them this diorama made entirely of LEGO, which also comes with a recreation of Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) and Chandler’s (Matthew Perry) apartment from across the hall and figurines that look like the Friends cast. Complete the (LEGO) world of Friends with another set built to look like the Central Perk.
