Friends is more than a television show for most people. It is a way of life, a comfort show, and something they reference all the time. While you might not always be able to talk to your friend about whether or not Ross and Rachel were on a break, whether Joey needed a babysitter, or whether Phoebe was a secret genius, you do know that there are plenty of Friends gifts out there.

So many, in fact, that it can be somewhat disconcerting.

What should you get for someone who is a fan of Friends?

Here are some of our picks for the best gift ideas that a Friends fan will actually like.


Gifts For Those Who Wish They’d Be A Friend In The Coffee Shop

The coffee shop is the most iconic location on the Friends set, and it restarted the coffee industry in many ways – the Friends were always drinking coffee and that’s why these are great ideas.

Friends Central Perk Coffee Candle

Friends Central Perk Coffee Candle
