The best gifts for Penny in Stardew Valley are:

Building relationships with the townspeople in Stardew Valley is an essential aspect of the immersive player experience. Among the residents of Pelican Town is a friendly and book-loving villager named Penny. She is an NPC who captures the hearts of many players, and some are even willing to marry her.

Whether players want to deepen their friendship with Penny or romantically pursue her and win her affection, the perfect gifts make all the difference. Like with other NPCs in Stardew Valley, players can give Penny up to two gifts per week and an additional one on her birthday (Fall 2).

Penny’s Loved Gifts

When Penny receives something she loves, she says, "Thank you! I really love this!". Among the gifts that Penny loves are all Universal Loved Gifts (except Rabbit's Foot). Here are the following items she enjoys receiving as gifts.

Diamond

Stardew Valley Best Gifts for Penny

Diamonds are rare and valuable gemstones that are liked by most villagers and loved by Penny. The diamond is essentially a mineral that can be obtained from diamond nodes, which are found in the mines on levels 50 and below. Another way to obtain diamonds is through geode nodes, which are available on every level of the mines. There is a 0.1% chance for monsters in the mines to drop diamonds when defeated.

They can also be found in treasure chests while fishing or obtained through panning for gold.

Emerald

An emerald is a precious gemstone known for its vibrant green color. It is another mineral found in the mines. Players can obtain emeralds from emerald nodes and geode nodes available in the mines. There is a 10% chance for a Dwarvish Sentry in the Skull Cavern to drop an emerald when defeated.

Emeralds can also be found in treasure chests while fishing or obtained through panning for gold.

Melon
