Hello, everyone! Many players often ask which gifts are universally liked and can be given to anyone in Stardew Valley. In this article, we’ll discuss this topic in detail.
Most Loved Gifts
There are many gifts that most villagers love, but they are not easy to obtain. Golden Pumpkin, Magic Rock Candy, and Pearl are loved by everyone. However, these three items are not the best choice because they are difficult to acquire in large quantities and have no quality levels. Iridium quality items have a 1.5x affection bonus, so there’s a significant difference between a regular loved item and an Iridium quality one. Prismatic Shards are loved by everyone except Haley, and Rabbit’s Foot is loved by everyone except Penny.
These two items have a slightly lower universality than the top three, but Rabbit’s Foot can be easily mass-produced in Iridium quality, making it the best choice among universally loved gifts.
Not all crops are loved by the villagers, but there are a few that are liked by most of them. For example, in spring, Daffodils and Potatoes are popular; in summer, Tomatoes and Radishes are favored; and in fall, Bok Choy and Eggplants are well-received. These crops are affordable and easy to grow, making them great gifts for most villagers.
Abigail, Krobus, and Willy especially love Pumpkins. Children like Jas and Vincent don’t like vegetables, so it’s essential to remember that when giving gifts.
Flowers like Sweet Peas, Crocuses, Sunflowers, Tulips, Summer Spangles, Fairy Roses, and Blue Jazz are generally liked by everyone except Clint, George, and Sebastian. Poppies, on the other hand, are loved by Penny but hated by everyone else. Flowers can be a bit more challenging to manage than crops since they come in various colors and take up more inventory space.
Fruit Trees and Gems
The fruits sold by Pierre – Apple, Apricot, Cherry, Orange, Peach, and Pomegranate – are liked by everyone at the very least. The downside is that fruit trees require a minimum of three days between harvests, making them less convenient than crops.
Bananas and Mangoes are not universally liked, so it’s essential to keep that in mind. Gems obtained from mining, such as Emeralds, Aquamarines, Rubies, Amethysts, Topazes, and Jades, are loved by Clint, Dwarf, and Emily, while everyone else likes them. Leah, Linus, and Pierre are the only ones who don’t like gems.
Artisan Goods and Cooking
Most villagers like artisan goods, but there are a few exceptions. For example, Sebastian, Penny, Jas, Vincent, and Leo don’t like alcoholic beverages like Wine, Pale Ale, Beer, and Mead. The children also don’t like Coffee, but it’s a popular choice for the other villagers.
Cheese and Goat Cheese are disliked by Harvey, Sebastian, Jas, and Vincent. These two kids mainly prefer sweets. Honey, for example, is only disliked by Maru and Sebastian.
It’s not worth remembering every villager’s preferences when it comes to cooking because there are too many dishes. It’s better to focus on easy-to-obtain items like Salad, which can be bought at the Stardrop Saloon for a low price. Krobus, Leo, and Willy are the only villagers who don’t like Salad.
In conclusion, the truly universally liked gifts include Golden Pumpkin, Magic Rock Candy, Pearl, Diamond, and the six fruit tree fruits. Other affordable items like crops, Salad, Coffee, Beer, and Honey
