If you’re looking to give a special someone in Stardew Valley the perfect gift, it’s important to first learn about what they like and love. To do this, watch for clues during conversations with them–do they mention any specific items or activities? Pay attention when giving gifts on certain occasions such as birthdays.

The reactions of your giftee can tell you a lot! You may also want to consult other NPCs who know the person well. They can offer insights into the type of presents that would be appreciated by your friend. All these tips will help guide your shopping decisions and make sure you pick out something truly special. Knowing what makes them happy is half the battle won! With knowledge in hand, you are now ready to move onto step two: getting the gift.

Step 2: Get The Gift

The second step to giving gifts in Stardew Valley is getting the gift. Most often, players can purchase them from Pierre’s General Store or other merchants like Marnie’s Ranch or Willy’s Fish Shop. You can also find items around your farm and surrounding area as well. Items such as wild berries, mushrooms, common fish, and eggs are all acceptable gifts that you can give away!

Another way of obtaining a gift is via fishing. Fishing requires patience but it’s worth it when you get something rare in return. Players who have unlocked the fishing bundles at the community center will be able to obtain valuable gifts while they wait for their catches. Lastly, some quests may reward you with special items which could be given away as presents too!

Having obtained an item suitable for gifting, press Y on your keyboard (or Triangle if playing on PS4) to open up your equipment bar and select the item you want to give away. This should add said item to your character’s hand so you can go ahead and proceed with step 3: put the gift in the equipment bar.

Step 3: Put The Gift In The Equipment Bar

Now that you have the gift, it’s time to put it in your equipment bar. This can be done by selecting and dragging the item from your inventory onto the equipment bar. Once there, click on the icon for the item and press ‘Use’. This will bring up a prompt asking if you want to give this item as a gift. Confirm yes and proceed to step 4.

Once you’ve placed the gift into your equipment bar, make sure to double-check its placement so that when you go to use it, everything is ready! You don’t want any unnecessary delays or awkward pauses while giving someone their present! Now that you’re all set up with the item in place, let’s move on to actually giving the gift over.

Step 4: Give The Gift Over

Now that you’ve chosen the perfect gift for your friend, it’s time to actually give it over. To do this, find your friend in town or at their house and press ‘Y’ on them when they are nearby. You’ll then have a dialogue box appear with a few options – one of which will be “give”.

Selecting this option will bring up all the items in your inventory so choose the item you want to give away. Once selected, click confirm and watch as your character hands over the item!

It’s important to note that if you’re giving someone multiple gifts, make sure not to select too many at once – otherwise, they won’t be able to accept any more presents after the first one has been given out. Make sure to keep track of how many items you’re handing out by counting before selecting each one.

Once all of the gifts have been handed out, you should see an orange heart indicator above your friends head letting you know that they accepted what was offered. This is also helpful for double checking whether or not the person received their present successfully!

Step 5: Check The Heard Indicator

Once you have given your gift to the person of your choice, it’s time to check the heart indicator. The heart indicator will tell you how much they appreciate your gift, giving you a better understanding of their preference and what kind of gifts they like.

The more hearts that appear in the heart indicator, the higher appreciation for the gift you gave them. If no hearts appear at all, then this is an indication that your gift was not appreciated very much by the recipient. You should take note of this so that if you choose to give another gift in future, you can avoid choosing something similar or opt for something else instead.

There are other indicators on the screen as well which can help inform your decision when selecting a gift. For example, one of those indicators may be related to friendship level with each villager – if they really like you and feel close enough to be considered friends with you, then gifting them something special could increase their happiness even further! On top of that, there may also be some characters who prefer certain items over others depending on their personality type.

So remember: always keep an eye out for these subtle clues before making any decisions about which item to give someone as a present. This way, you can make sure that whatever gift-giving occasion arises in Stardew Valley; everyone is sure to end up happy!


Giving gifts in Stardew Valley is a great way to show your appreciation and affection for the people you care about. The process may seem intimidating at first, but with these five easy steps, you’ll be able to give thoughtful presents that will bring smiles to all of your friends and family.

First, make sure to do some research on what kind of gifts they like or love – this can help ensure that your gift will be appreciated more than anything else. Then, locate the item you want to buy and put it into your equipment bar. When it’s time to deliver the present, simply go up to them and select “give gift” from their dialogue options. Finally, keep an eye out for the heart indicator – if it turns pink when you give someone a gift then that means they really liked it!
