How To Date A Magical Girl – Gift-Giving Guide

A straightforward guide on which girls like which gifts.

Guide to Gifts

Introduction

Gift-giving is one of the few ways to get affection in this VN without passing time, so you should do it whenever possible. Late-game, if you’ve been doing everything right, money will be easier to come by. For this reason, you might want to eventually use gifts that give more affection even if the price tag is too high for the point value.

Most girls have

  • 1 Disliked Food Item (0 points)
  • 3-4 Liked Food Items (2 points)
  • 1 Favorite Food Item (4 points)
  • 1 Arcade Item (5 points)
  • 3 Dept. Store Items (3, 7, and 10 points)
  • 1 Special Item (Not gifted directly, used for 100% affection event)

Usually all other gifts give 1 point, as do any repeat non-disliked food gifts. For this reason, you should exclusively buy lollipops once all other gifts have been exhausted.

At some point in the story you will gain an Apartment Key. Giving this to a girl has no other effect than raising her affection by 10, so you can safely give it to whoever you need to.

Note: There’s a bug with giving Kaori wine as of writing. No matter how many times you give it to her, it will always count as a new gift and give the full 2 points. However, giving it to her will mark Hikaru as having received wine (even if you’ve never given it to Hikaru before), so you may want to give it to Hikaru before Kaori.
