    1. A heart-shaped kitchen spoon that's like the grown-up equivalent of sending a love letter. Every time they use it, they'll be reminded of their awesome friends (aka you)! It's carved out of wild olive wood, so each spoon is completely unique — just like your friend.

    Wooden utensils do not do well in dishwashers, so make sure you tell your pal when they open their gift.

    Get it at Uncommon Goods for $27.97.

    2. A Friends trivia game that'll finally put all their hours of binging to use. There are 50 questions, ranging from the easy (the name of Ross' first wife), to the more difficult and obscure (what name is printed on the address label of Chandler's TV guide?), so your friend will feel thoroughly challenged.

    Or maybe it'll make them realize it's time for another binge.

    3. A fill-in-the-blank book that'll give you a chance to tell them what you love about them. Maybe it's a super-cool outfit you can't get enough of, or maybe it's their unwavering love for their friends — whatever it is, put it in writing!
