How to improve Stardew Relationships?

Did you know that becoming great friends (or more) with other characters in Stardew Valley is not that hard at all?

Basically, you need to spend a bit more time with your chosen NPCs and give them gifts. It might take you some time to figure out what kind of items are liked or loved by different Stardew Valley candidates, so you might want to check out our Stardew gifts guide to learn more about that.

If you give a gift on someone’s birthday, then the relationship will improve faster.

However, keep in mind that you will be counted only as friends if you haven’t reached the 8 hearts event with some NPC. That’s when the romance can begin.

If you decide to go forward with the relationship, you will need to buy a flower bouquet from Pierre’s General Store and give it to the bachelor or bachelorette. That’s how you get a boyfriend or a girlfriend in Stardew Valley.
