Despite ending 15 years ago, Friends still remains endlessly popular and is somehow still one of the most-watched shows on Netflix.
With the programme also celebrating it’s 25th anniversary this year, why not get the Friends fan in your life some of the cool merch they’ve released to celebrate.
You guessed it, it’s the one with all the gift suggestions…
Challenge your Friends!
Friends Top Trumps
What better way to end a long day working behind the counter at Central Perk (or wherever you work) than with a game of Friends Top Trumps. But do you really have the number of biggest stars, and will your knowledge of the show Be There For You when you need it?
Only one way to find out.
Amazon – £4.37
Lego’s not just for kids…
Yes, this actually happened – to celebrate the 25th anniversary Lego released a buildable brick version of Central Perk along with minifigures of all six friends, and even a little lego Gunther. Weirdly, it’s designed as a set complete with lights and rigging on the side. The definition of the gift you didn’t know you needed.
John Lewis – £64.99
Game for a laugh?
Friends Trivial Pursuit
