|(ARA) – Hard to believe this is going to be the last holiday season that Rachel, Ross, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and Joey gather around the Christmas tree and Hanukkah Menorah to share memories. NBC’s Friends is coming to an end after a 10 year run on the network.
The show about love, life and lattes doesn’t wrap up until after the all-important May television ratings book, but if you know someone who is already in mourning over the inevitable end, a Friends’ themed-gift would be much appreciated this holiday season.
“We’re expecting DVDs and videotapes of past Friends seasons to be among our biggest sellers,” says Leslie Agerland of ShopNBC, a broadcast and online retailer. So big, in fact, there are thousands of copies wrapped and waiting for shipment orders at the company’s warehouses around the country.
There are also plenty of Friends T-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs and holiday ornaments on hand; but Friends isn’t the only NBC show whose memorabilia is expected to do well this holiday season. “West Wing, Frasier and ER also have large followings. So do NBC’s early morning and late night lineups,” adds Agerland.
Fans can order hats, T-shirts, sweatshirts and Christmas ornaments with their favorite show’s logo. Like Friends, many shows also have DVDs and videotapes of old episodes available for purchase.
If you’re looking for a gift a child will treasure for years to come, you may want to pick up a copy of “It’s a Very Merry Muppets Christmas” on videotape or DVD. The show is a classic. Or perhaps a retro gift: Alf and Mr. T. haven’t been on the air for years, but Agerland says people are still buying their merchandise.
For those who want to get into the spirit of the games a little early, Olympic merchandise with the logo for the 2004 Athens games is also available. “It’s the best collection of unique NBC items, many of which you can’t find anywhere else,” says Agerland.
In addition to NBC show merchandise, ShopNBC also sells jewelry, house wares, computers, make-up, and health and beauty products. For more holiday gift ideas, watch ShopNBC on cable or satellite, or log onto www.shopnbc.com. You can place orders 24 hours a day, seven days a week at both venues.
