If you're anything like Monica, decorating your tree for Christmas is serious business. But this year, you're in luck, as these funny and nostalgic Friends ornaments will get even the Holiday Armadillo's seal of approval. If you're looking for the perfect pop-culture gift, or a way to embellish your own tree, why not turn to the iconic New York City sitcom?

Joey, Chandler, Ross, Monica, Rachel and Phoebe often go hand-in-hand with the festive season—there are tons of Friends holiday and Christmas episodes (and yes, we've already started re-watching all of them). And what could be more fun than adding a little *pizzaz* to your decor via a Friends ornament? Not only are they colorful and amusing to look at; but every time you pass on, you'll be reminded of some of your favorite moments from the eternally funny series.

And, if you're not the biggest Friends fan (firstly, how dare you), a funky Friends ornament would make for one of the best Christmas gifts for a friend or co-worker, especially if you're already stressing over Secret Santa. Have a look at some of the adorable decorations below and give your tree a look that even Monica would approve of.

1. Phoebe's Christmas Song Ornament

RRP: $18/£19.86

Phoebe's festive Christmas song will live rent-free in our heads forever (she's our favorite 'Friends' character (opens in new tab) for a reason)—so why not get it immortalized in the form of a rather pretty looking tree ornament? 

This option has the entire song lyrics on it (yes, even the bizarre ending), interspersed with rows of Christmas lights. On the white background, it couldn't look more festive—and we bet it'll have you humming the tune every time you walk past it.

They'll be lobsters together forever—in the immortal words of Phoebe Buffay.

4. Hallmark Friends Central Perk Cafe Couch

RRP: $14.93/£24.33

Is there a Friends scene more recognizable than the entire gang sat drinking coffee on the Central Perk couch? If the large brown/orange sofa and Central Perk window signifies the TV show for you, snap up this Friends ornament.

Made of resin, its largely unbreakable, and it measures in at 3 x 2.63 x 1.72 inches—meaning it'll be big enough to spot on your tree, but not so big that it'll draw attention away from your other ornaments. A great cozy gift (opens in new tab) for those who also love cuddling up on the couch!

5. Friends Door Frame Ornaments

RRP: $9.99/£17.93

The unmistakable yellow door frame around the peephole of Monica's apartment was the closing shot of the entire series, so there's really no other symbol that best sums up the wildly popular show. 

Why is why we simply had to include this ornament, which comes in two different sizes. Just try not to sob each time you pass it...

And if you want to watch the heartbreaking scene again, here's how to watch Friends online (opens in new tab) now that the show has left Netflix in the US.

9. Friends Ceramic Christmas decoration

RRP: £10 (UK only)

The Central Perk coffee mug is a key part of the Friends world, so why not bag your very own for Christmas? Sadly, you won't be able to sip a mocha out of this one though...
