All Bachelor and Bachelorette best (and worst) gifts in Stardew Valley

You can tell a lot about someone by the gifts they enjoy...

With 45 Villagers roaming around Pelican Town and beyond in Stardew Valley, there’s a lot to remember when it comes to trying to get their hearts up. One of the best ways to increase your relationships is by giving gifts, but there’s a lot to remember on that front too. 

Recommended Videos

Of these 45 Villagers, there are 12 who can eventually be married, six male (Bachelors) and six female (Bachelorettes). Rather than guessing and potentially landing yourself in a social faux pas, or worse having your pixel beau end up hating you, keep reading for everything you need to know in order to woo your favorite Villager.

Universally loved gifts in Stardew Valley

Some gifts will be loved by most Villagers (there are limited exceptions and I will note them if they apply in this case) and are guaranteed to give 80 points towards a relationship with them:

  • Golden Pumpkin
  • Magic Rock Candy
  • Pearl
  • Prismatic Shard
  • Rabbit’s Foot 

Exceptions:

  • Haley hates Prismatic Shard
  • Penny hates Rabbit’s Foot

When given as gifts to almost any villager (again, I’ll note exceptions if they apply to the Bachelors or Bachelorettes), these gifts are guaranteed to decrease your friendship with them by 40 points:
