Best Gift to Give Leah in Stardew Valley

Luckily, Leah likes most of the forageable items that you can get every day in Stardew Valley, which make a really good gift in the Spring of Year 1.

Once you advance a bit and level up, you can start either buying the Salad from the Saloon as a gift, since it’s only 220 g, or you can get some Goats, level up Farming to unlock the Cheese Press, and start making Goat Cheese.

Usually, if you really want to make a lot of money from your animals, Pigs are the way to go.

Since you get Truffles from Pigs, you can also keep a few to gift Leah every week. Otherwise, Wine is something that you should be making anyway, as it increases the price of crops three times.

Once you reach level 8 in Farming, you should have Kegs all over the place making you Wine. Just take some from the production and give it to Leah.

So, the best gifts to give Leah in Stardew Valley are forageables at the start, then Salads or Goat Cheese, and then Wine or Truffles. If you know where she is located, you can easily get those maximum hearts with her using these items.

That’s everything you need to know about what gifts Leah likes in Stardew Valley!
