Gifting The Goddess In ‘Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town’
The Harvest Goddess is back in the Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town remake. I’d argue that some of these unlockables should require more gifts, but here’s the complete list. Note that tossing multiple gifts into her pond will not speed up her rewards. Bear in mind, some of these can be spoiler-y. If you’re looking for a clean experience, this guide may not be right for you. Happy farming!
NOTE: Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town is a remake of the 2003 GBA release Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town. You can read more about the company’s rebranding here.

This is the final gift—the Seaside Cottage. In the original GBA game, Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town, this house unlocked by linking Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life on the Nintendo GameCube and the GameBoy Advance game together via the GC/GBA Link Cable.
