Ready to take your supports to the next level? Fire Emblem Engage is the latest in the long-running tactics franchise, with a greater emphasis than before on deep combat mechanics. Part of that comes from having great support levels with your party members, and the best way to raise support levels is with gifts. Give the best gifts to your party members, and you’ll have A ranks locked in no time. With 35 characters to unlock in Fire Emblem Engage, it can be difficult keeping track of who likes what. That’s where we come in.

How to give gifts in Fire Emblem Engage
Supports are critical in Fire Emblem Engage, as the higher ranks you have, the better your units will perform in combat next to each other. It’s also important for being able to get your lone S-Rank support, which leads to a romance of sorts. Before giving a party member a gift, it’s important to always check and make sure your current support level isn’t maxed out. If it is, you’ll need to have a special conversation with the character in question, at which point you’ll unlock a new rank and be able to continue raising support levels.
You’ll find some gifts throughout the game as item drops, but you can also purchase additional gifts from Timerra’s shop once she joins your party.
Giving a party member gifts in Fire Emblem Engage is extremely easy. You need to head back to The Somniel, then find the party member you want to give a gift to. If you’re not sure where they are, you can find them using the Bulletin Board in the Cafeteria, then selecting Somniel Map. Once you’ve located the party member in question, simply start a conversation and then select the Gift option.
Best gifts for each party member in Fire Emblem Engage
Your allies love gifts, but even though there’s a lot of overlap between some characters, they won’t just accept any junk you throw their way. They have individual likes and dislikes, and if you just hand things out without paying attention, you won’t get anywhere. Paying attention to what your allies say in Bond and Support conversations can give you some insight, but if you ever need a reminder, check the Ally Notebook under Reference in the menu.
