Making sense of the best Palia villager gifts can be a struggle. Like other games of its type, each of the two dozen or so characters you'll come across as you travel around Kilima and Bahari can be your friend. And gifts are the best way to convince them you're a good human. But knowing what they like without wasting valuable resources can be difficult. That's where the table below comes in.

For the most part, you'll get a general idea of a Palia character's likes and dislikes just by talking to them. The more you check in, the more you learn of their interests and hobbies, making gift-giving a little easier. But you'll still get things wrong. And they won't give those unwanted gifts back.

Palia Village gifts - The best presents for each NPC

Note that the below Palia presents table lists past weekly gifts confirmed by players on various community gathering spots like Reddit and Discord.

The best Palia character gifts change by the week, but they all tend to stick to their general likes and dislikes. That means the exact gift you give them might not be the best one to advance your friendship, but they'll certainly not hate you for it. Some characters can even like the same items as another character.

How to give gifts in Palia

You can give gifts in Palia simply by talking to the character you wish to hand a present to. Just find them on the map, speak to them, and use the little present icon in the bottom-left (above the gift request button) when they're ready for a gift. If it's blanked out, go through their dialogue options first.

Once you click the button, your inventory will automatically open. Right-click on the item you'd like to give them to hand it over. If it's part of a stack, you'll hand over just one. You don't need to split the stacks beforehand.


How to know what a character wants in Palia

By using the button in the bottom-left corner when talking to a character, you can get them to spill the beans on what a character wants this week. Some NPCs will infer what another character wants, while they may sometimes state what they themselves would like to receive. If you're ever unsure, just ask around.
