Due to the gifts that she likes and loves, Haley is probably the easiest character to romance in Stardew Valley.
Daffodils are extremely easy to get since you can just forage them at the start of the game in abundance.
Just look around for the only forageable yellow flowers, and you will easily get a lot of friendship points with Haley in Spring.
Once Summer comes, you can buy Sunflower Seeds from JojaMart (not Pierre’s, since his price is higher) and grow enough to give her twice a week every week until you marry her.
The seeds at JojaMart cost 125 g, while their price at Pierre’s is 200 g.
Sunflower Seeds are one of the only things that are cheaper at JojaMart, so it might be a good idea to profit before they close down due to your Community Center improvements.
