Universal Loves and Likes

In Stardew Valley there are some gifts that nearly everybody will like. They are called Universal Loves and Universal Likes. They can be good choices to develop relationships with a villager. We have listed them below for you.

Universal Loves

Golden Pumpkin
It can only be found by navigating the maze during the Spirit’s Eve Festival.

Magic Rock Candy
It is earned by donating 90 items to the museum. It is also dropped by the Haunted Skull enemies in the mines and can be purchased from the Desert Trader on Thursdays for three Prismatic Shards.

Pearl
Obtainable during the Night Market Festival. There’s a small chance to get it while fishing on the Fishing Submarine. You can also get it inside the Mermaid Boat by arranging the clam shells in the corrects sequence.

Prismatic Shard
Gained from Omni Geodes, Iridium Nodes, Mystic Stones, Gem Nodes, and Fishing Treasure Chests. It is also a rare drop from Serpents, Mummies, Shadow Brutes, and Shadow Shaman. There’s also a small drop chance from any monster.

Rabbit’s Foot
Obtained from a rabbit with sufficient Friendship, Mood, and Luck. It can also be occasionally bought from the Travelling Cart and has a small drop chance with Serpents in the Skull Cavern.

There are two exceptions to the Universal Loves:

  • Penny hates Rabbit’s Foot.
  • Haley hates the Prismatic Shards.

Universal Likes

All Artisan Goods
You will require artisan equipment to craft these items. Items like Mayonnaise, which require an Egg and a Mayonnaise Machine, or honey from a Bee House.

All Cooking Recipes
These are the dishes you can cook with the cooking skill. The better the cooking skill the better the gift!
