10 Friends-Themed Finds That Will Be There For You
...when the rain starts to fall.
(SPOT.ph) In case you've been living under a rock (or secretly ran away to Yemen to hide from your annoying ex), you probably know by now that a Friends reunion is currently in the works. Anyone else been waiting since 2004 to see Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and Joey sit down for a cup of coffee just one more time?
Details on the upcoming reunion are scarce, but we do know that the show’s executive producers Marta Kauffman and David Crane confirmed that it isn't going to be a continuation of the OG series. That means there's lots to look forward to and plenty of new things to expect. Could we BE any more excited?!
In the meantime, we'll be marathoning all 10 seasons in preparation for the big premiere. But if you already do that on the daily, we also know another way to fuel your excitement while waiting: by copping some cool merch inspired by the '90s TV series. We round up a few you might like.
Here are 10 Friends-themed items you can shop in Manila:
Hooded Top With a Motif (P1,490) from H&M
Bundle up in this cozy hoodie from H&M, which features the classic F.R.I.E.N.D.S. logo on the front. The simple white piece will be easy to pair with any casual outfit so you can wear it with your go-to bottoms on a chilly day or toss it in your bag in case you’re prepping for a cold evening.
See a list of H&M branches.
Any avid Internet user has probably seen this adorable photo of the Friends gang sipping on milkshakes together. Now you can rock it on this cute yellow T-shirt from Pull&Bear. It’s got the phrase “life is better with friends” written underneath the photo, and we think that’s true for both your real-life buddies, and your six fave on-screen chums.

2020 A5 Weekly Diary (P679) from Typo
