Coral Island features over 20 romance options, so there truly are plenty of fish in the sea when it comes to dating on your playthrough. That said, you’ll want to give awesome gifts to win the hearts of your favorite characters. This means focusing on universally loved and liked gifts as well as personal favorites.

There’s just one gift that almost every character loves: Pink Diamond. Fortunately, you can process this precious gem from geodes found in mines. Apart from this, most characters like to receive flowers. While they don’t grant as big of a buff to the status of your relationship, these gifts are great to offer if you don’t have any Pink Diamonds on hand. However, Yuri and Charles hate all flowers, so you’ll want to turn to personal preferences. Here’s an outline of favorite gifts.

Perhaps even more important than gifts that each NPC will love are gifts that they’ll dislike. If you give a character something that they like, you’ll receive a boost to your relationship. However, the opposite is true for disliked gifts. To avoid being docked points, you’ll want to make sure you don’t hand out gifts that characters will hate. This generally includes crafting materials, like wood, stone and trash.

However, there are several other items that most characters don’t like to receive. Here’s a closer look at the gifts that majority of the characters in Coral Island dislike:

  • Tilapia
  • Crayfish
  • Metals
  • Bait
  • Kelp
  • Low-quality dishes
  • Explosives
