Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to get the best villager gifts


Animal Crossing New Horizons is proving to be incredibly popular, with seemingly everyone starting their island-hopping Nintendo Switch adventure.


While you're getting acquainted with your new anthropomorphised friends, it can be tricky to know what to get them as gifts – but you no longer need to wonder.

Keep up to date with everything Animal Crossing by watching below!

Nook Plaza, an Animal Crossing database, now has tools to work out which gifts villagers enjoy, bringing the game's previously hidden friendship mechanic front and centre.

All gifts seem to boost your friendship with a neighbour, but certain items offer significantly more. While you can offer furniture, we'd recommend clothing – it takes up less room in a villager's home.

Nook Plaza offers a way to simply search by the villager's name so players can see the best items that suit their personal taste. It's like having a personal shopper for your digital friends, so we'd recommend giving it a go here.
