NYLON’s Holiday Gift Guide 2018: The Netflix Nerd

We know people who like to Netflix and chill, and there’s those who would always choose Netflix over chill every time without fail. Now that everything can be streamed online, nobody really needs all 10 seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S on DVD. Plus who even has a DVD player nowadays? Of course, there’s always the option of gifting your Netflix-obsessed BFF a couple months of free subscription, but it’s lacking a little in the effort department. Depending on their favourite shows, there’s plenty of other cool trinkets that would make even the most hardcore Netflix fan get off the couch to squeal in delight.

1. DUSTY PINK FAUX FUR ROBE, $116
Available at Topshop
