It’s been more than a decade since Friends ended, and yet, all we want each Christmas are more Friends TV show gifts.
Friends—which starred Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer— premiered on NBC in September 1994 and ran for 10 seasons and 10 years until its finale in May 2004. The series followed six friends—Rachel Green, Monica Geller, Phoebe Buffay, Joey Tribbiani, Chandler Bing and Ross Geller—in New York City as they dated, laughed and had adventures throughout their 20s and 30s. While there’s no best Friends episode, the Emmy-winning series’ holiday episodes have become iconic over the years, which makes sense as to why fans still want to wear and consume the show decades after its premiere.
From the episode where Ross dresses as the Holiday Armadillo to the time Joey and Chandler gave Phoebe toilet seat covers for Christmas, the holidays and Friends go hand in hand, which is why we came up with a list of the best Friends TV show gifts to give your fans who still can’t stop quoting the ’90s sitcom.
