This mod displays a helpful tooltip that shows an NPC's favourite gifts when hovering over their birthday on the calendar. This works with both the calendar furniture item that you can have in your house, as well as the calendar on the billboard in town.

Note that it currently does not include the two universal loved items, but may in the future.

**NEW**: tooltips now appear on the social page thanks to dreamsicl!

Support for all locales!


Works with the most recent version of Stardew Valley (last tested with 1.1).

This mod requires SMAPI to run. 1.1 or higher to run. The latest version it was updated for is 1.2.

For instructions on installing SMAPI view this help page.

If you are unable to update SMAPI due to existing mods breaking then you can get the SMAPI 39.2 compatible version here (or from the files section). Just note that this version will be less likely to be maintained in the future. I still highly recommend updating SMAPI to the latest version if possible.

NOTE: legacy version (SMAPI 1.1 and lower) are no longer supported. GiftTasteHelper 1.1 will work with SMAPI 40.0 and earlier though.

Installation instructions

1. Download the associated files.
2. Unzip the contents into your Mods folder which is located in the same directory as your Stardew Valley.exe and StardewValleyModdingAPI.exe.


In this mod's config.json file you will find options to enable/disable displaying the tooltip on the calendar and social page.

The config file is located in the Mods/GiftTasteHelper directory under your game install. To find your game directory click. There is also an option for specifying the maximum number of gifts to display on the tooltip.

To edit the file just open it in any text editor.
The config will look like:

"ShowOnCalendar": true,
"ShowOnSocialPage": true,
"MaxGiftsToDisplay": 0 // 0 means no limit.

Just replace true with false and save the file (game must be restarted for changes to take effect) for the menus you don't want to see the tooltip on and visa versa.
