Villager Birthday Parties

Seren Morgan-Roberts


This page offers information on birthday parties and how to use them to increase friendship levels.

A Villager Birthday

You’ll know it’s a villager’s birthday because Isabelle will announce it during the island-wide broadcast. It will also be advertised on the billboard so you know in advance!

Buy a Gift and Wrap it!

If you attend a party, bringing a gift is a given. But, if you’re looking to be a great friend you should wrap the gift as well! You can buy wrapping paper from Nook’s Cranny and then use it to wrap up the gift. Wrapping the gift positively impacts your friendship with the villager in question. The best gifts to give will always be furniture, but you can give bugs, insects and clothes too. Don’t give them trash or rotten turnips as this will negatively impact your friendship!

You should always attend birthday parties on your island!

Attend the Party

When you have a gift, head over to the villager’s house and attend the party! Another villager will also be there to celebrate. Their house will also be decorated with banners and balloons to mark the special occasion. Speak to the birthday villager and gift them your perfectly wrapped present.

The following day, you’ll receive a gift in the mailbox from the birthday villager, thanking you for coming to their birthday party and giving them a gift.
