In the bottom right corner of the icon of every NPC, you can see the specific amount of hearts. These hearts are indicators of the friendship between you and the villagers. Generally, the more hearts you have, the stronger your relationships are. And as a result, you will get more benefits from friendship.

However, building a solid friendship is not so simple. To have excellent relationships with NPCs, you need to spend a lot of time and attention on this or that person. Also, there is a limitation. The maximum number of hearts that you can have is 10. If you have 10 hearts with a villager, he will become your best friend and will not require much attention. At the same time, there is a specific type of villagers that can have only 8 friend-hearts.

After learning the basics, you need to find out how to improve your friendship. It will not only make the game more exciting, but it will be beneficial for you as well. If you are good with other people, they will make excellent offers and give you presents.

One of the best ways to improve a friendship with an NPC is to give him or her a present. However, the problem is that it is pretty hard to find out what gift to choose to not make a mistake. Every NPC has his or her favourite and hated present. So, if you give a villager an item that he or she does not like, you will significantly worsen relationships.

To make sure you avoid making mistakes, here’s a table describing all gifts that villagers like and hate. It is one of the most helpful things you can use in Stardew Valley.
