Anyone new to the Persona series will find a rich game with deep stories, complex characters, and a lot of bizarre and interesting elements common in anime video game universes. Like the others in the series Persona 5 is a role-playing game with dungeon crawling and elements of a dating simulation. This unique combination requires players to explore the Metaverse and fighting demonic creatures and evil humans.
To facilitate this, players must establish strong bonds with Confidants in the game who provide a romantic interest and unlockable skills necessary to progress in the game. Which Confidant you pick also determines the Personas you summon into battle and what class they will be. To help woo the various confidants and help out with the social elements of this complex game here is a list of all the Confidants and the best gifts to give them.
9 Ann Takamaki (Lovers)
There are a number of gifts Ann will accept and the majority of them provide the 3+ bonus which makes her easier to woo than many other Confidants on this list and most of them can be found in the Shibuya Station Underground Mall . The cheapest 3+ gift she’ll accept is a Custard Cake that goes for ¥ 1,500.
The Custard Cake along with Chocolate Truffles, Face Beautifier, Rose Bouquet, and Uji Matcha Flan trigger unique dialogue when given. The gifts Crimson Lipstick, Heart-Shaped Ring, and Rose Bouquet will require a romantic relationship before they can be given as gifts. The Star Mirror is the only 3+ gift that doesn’t give additional dialogue or require a romantic relationship. The only non 3+ gifts she accepts are Best of KGB49 and Designer Perfume which both grant 2+.
8 Makoto Niijima (Priestess)
Like Ann, Makoto accepts many gifts and only one of them isn’t a 3+, almost all of them are in the Shibuya Station Underground Mall The cheapest gift you can buy is the Mini Cactus and costs ¥ 1,600. The Designer Perfume and Motorbike Figure are the only gifts that provide unique dialogue and the Heart Necklace, Heart-shaped Ring, and Rose Bouquet are the only gifts that require a romantic relationship.
This means there are a lot of gifts that provide the 3+ without any additional dialogue or requirements, such as the Book Cover, Flower Basket, Fountain Pen, and Mini Cactus. The only gift she’ll accept that gives a 2+ bonus is the Classical Hits.

The other gifts like Custard Cake, Chocolates Truffles, and Classical Hits are all 2+. While she may be pickier in the gifts she wants, they are also the most affordable so there is a definite trade-off when it comes to wooing the Confidant of death.
