Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Best Gifts Guide

Everyone loves Owl Feathers.


While Fire Emblem: Three Houses doesn't really have actual romance, cultivating friendships with students and faculty is still a major part of the game. As a new professor at Garreg Mach monastery, sometimes you just gotta buy the love (and motivation) of the people around you. If you're not sure whether your favorite character will like the gift you got them, don't worry--we've tested it out so you don't have to face the shame of, "Oh. I guess I'll take it."

Gift-giving is important for a number of reasons. A loved gift will sharply increase your support bond with the recipient, and if they're in your class, it will also increase their motivation gauge by 50 (out of 100). Keeping students motivated to learn means you'll be able to instruct them more, and improving bonds is a crucial part of recruiting new students and improving your joint performance on the battlefield. A basic gift will also give you a minor support boost and a smaller motivation increase, but as with most things in Three Houses, you should strive to get the most bang for your buck.

No Caption Provided

To start off, literally everyone in the game likes Owl Feathers. If you're at a total loss for what to give someone (or you're just out of relevant gifts), it's a great plan B. You can find Owl Feathers around the monastery. As for flowers, you can plant flower seeds in the Greenhouse and harvest them for your gift-giving needs the next time you explore. The rest of these gifts can be purchased from various merchants, mainly the Southern and Eastern Merchants in the monastery's marketplace. Note that this list is not comprehensive; we'll update with more gifts as we continue to test them out.
