Master the Art of Gift-Giving: Universally Loved Gifts in Stardew Valley Expanded

The Stardew Gift system is complicated. It was created with the intention that the player needs to discover which gifts certain NPCs like or love by constantly trying and, from time to time, failing.

However, throughout the game, you can find secret notes that some NPCs left, in which you can find out which gifts some NPCs love. However, there is a small number of them, and they a written in an enigmatic way.

Luckily, universal love gifts exist. They are types of gifts that all NPCs love (with some expectations that I’ll list in this article), and today you will learn which items, both from the vanilla game and Stardew Expanded mod, fall in that category.

Which Gifts Are Universally Loved

Let us go straight to the point and begin with the list of loveable items.

Name Source
Prismatic Shard Mining, fishing treasure chests, monsters’ drop, rainbow trout fish ponds, treasure room, Statue Of True Perfection
Rabbit’s Foot Rabbit, Travelling Cart
Golden Pumpkin Halloween, Artifact Trove
Pearl Night Market, Artifact Trove, Blobfish
Magic Rock Candy Desert Trader, Museum (90 items reward)

However, there are a great number of exceptions that you must know to avoid throwing a valuable item away. Luckily only two of them include love gifts.

  • Miss Haley, for some reason, hates Prismatic Shard, which is quite odd because it’s colorful and shiny.
  • Penny hates Rabbit’s Foot, probably because of this item, and she can’t figure out that I’m bringing harm to my rabbits because the rabbit’s foot in Stardew just magically appears. She also hates Golden Pumpkin.

As for the Stardew Expanded mod, all new NPCs love universally loved gifts. Luckily there is no exception.

One Mod To Rule Them All

 

Lookup Anything mod
The Lookup Anything mod can help you find out which items NPCs love, like, and hate

 

I’ll recommend this mod to players that have already played this game a few times because it’s a cheat. It’s called Lookup Anything by Pathoschild, and with it, you can easily see which items NPCs love, like, and hate. You only need to place a cursor over them or on their icon on the calendar and simply press F1 to see what they think about every item.

So, if you played for quite some time, and can’t seem to remember which items NPCs love, this mod (khm… cheat), give it a try.
