The Friends Box is a quarterly subscription box filled with exclusive, officially-licensed merch from the hit TV show. Each box comes with collectibles, apparel, and friend-tastic accessories based on the beloved characters, memorable episodes, and seasonal cues. This was inspired by Season 9.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)
How you doin’?
This box was a true ode to Friends fans, honestly. It felt very much like memorabilia and was a nostalgic box compared to previous boxes. Instead of bringing iconic elements from the season, it has a few items, so you get to show your love for Friends.
What’s Inside The Box
This was the perfect apparel to add to this box. I received one in size medium, but I’m pretty sure it’s a unisex fit. Mine felt a bit too long, but I’m sure my husband will be ecstatic to get his hands on this tee.
Wall Art Tapestry
I consider myself a huge Friends fan, but I don’t see myself hanging a tapestry in my house. However, this is ICONIC. I can see this in my friends' houses and offices. I thought this was something different!
My personal favorite item in this box has to be this umbrella. I feel so lame writing that, but it's true! And it couldn’t have arrived at a better time with hurricane season quickly picking up in Florida. I love the transparent panels with the Friend logo; it looks so cute and pop.
I was both excited and disappointed by this one. I have plenty of plants in my home office, and a Friends planter mug seemed like the perfect idea to get another one. However, this one is a very cheap mug made of thin plastic. And the Central Perk logo is just a sticker that I know will lose its color over time. Plus, because this is a planter, the mug has a hole at the bottom (which I appreciate), but I would love to have had a matching plate to go with it.
I guess I’m finally joining the bucket hat trend! This cute bucket hat is a nice addition to my sun hats, and I can think of a million days I’ll be wearing this. It was a tad small, I will say that, but then my head is small, so it works. The best part is that the hat is reversible! Just be VERY CAREFUL getting rid of the tag since I pulled too hard and opened a hole in mine.
When I was a teenager, I had a bag covered with enamel pins from my favorite shows. When I saw this pin, I was elated. The pin is decently sized and would look cute on a backpack or tote bag.
These are cute photos, but I don’t think I’ll use them much. I'm not sure who sends postcards anymore, but I receive the holiday cards instead of these. Maybe I’ll send a few to other Friends-loving people in my life to have some fun.
Was the Box Worth It?
This box felt a bit less exclusive and more generic. Having said that, the box comes with 7 items for $39.99. You get an umbrella, a t-shirt, and a hat for $5.71, so each item is worth it to me.
This Friends box featured items that I will definitely use. The umbrella and the bucket hat are by far my favorite items. Getting this box always makes me smile, and it’s fun to remember these episodes. I usually rewatch the box’s season I get, but that’s just me! Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
