Is it too soon to start Christmas shopping? That festive season will be upon us before you know it, so you might as well get a jump on the rush. It’s not like the Holiday Armadillo is going to show up at your door, laden with goodies.

If your friend, family member, or even your “lobster” still misses Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and Joey, we have good news. Along with the announcement earlier this year that the cast had signed on for an hour-long reunion special, Amazon is letting customers pre-order an advent calendar strictly for fans of the show “Friends.” Could you be any more excited?

Even though the NBC TV show ended in 2004, so many of us fondly remember the characters in the series. Everyone has a favorite episode. And as with those episodes, which all started with the words, “The One,” this advent calendar is appropriately named “Friends: The Official Advent Calendar: The One With the Surprises,” and you might want to get dibs on this gift now.


According to Hip2Save, the calendar usually goes for $29.99. However, Amazon customers who order now will get theirs for $18.22. And bonus: Amazon’s Pre-order Price Guarantee applies to this item. This guarantee means that the price they charge when it ships will be the lowest price offered by Amazon between the time the order was placed and the end of the day of the release date. So, if the price drops at all between the time you order and the day the calendar is released, you’ll only pay that amount.

The advent calendar is entirely new for 2020. It has 25 days of surprises, one for each day of December, and more than 40 treats in all including buttons, recipe cards, keepsakes, ornaments, and booklets (and yes, one of them is a Holiday Armadillo surprise).

The advent calendar will be released on October 27, 2020.
