Time is limited in Persona 5, and you'll need to use it wisely! Here is our guide to all the Persona 5 Royal Confidant gifts you could possibly give, including which to prioritise for each friend, where to buy them, and which ones provide romantic relationship bonuses.

Originally, in 'vanilla' Persona 5, Joker could only give gifts to the female romance options, and no male characters. This whole system was overhauled in Royal, allowing Joker to give gifts to most Confidants to improve their relationship.

Here's our review of it on Nintendo Switch to help you choose how to play it next. You might find yourself questioning which Confidants to prioritise too, so check out our guide to make it easier, or which Palaces there are in the game - including Kaneshiro and his pesky codes.

Persona 5 Royal Confidant gift guide

Giving thoughtfully picked gifts to your friends, lovers, and acquaintances can help raise their Confidant rank without having to do hang-out events all the time. The gifts we have listed here will add either two or three points to their rank.

Certain Confidants don't like specific gifts, so it will be a wasted effort. As such, you need to make sure to match the right gifts with the right person to maximise their rank efficiently.

Some Confidants can't be given gifts. These include the Street Orator, the twins Justine and Caroline, Mishima, Sae Niijima, Morgana, and Igor in the Velvet Room.
