Throughout Scarlet Nexus, you will be able to gift certain items to characters to increase their max bond level. Doing so will allow you to unlock more SAS abilities and improve existing ones. Certain gifts increase that bond more than others.

Before you can gift items, you will need to reach the second standby phase, right at the end of phase two. The gifts acquired are marked by a simple icon that shows you how much they like said item.

  • Highlighted = Like
    • Small Bond increase
  • Pink Small Heart = Love
    • Medium Bond increase
  • Big Red Heart = Adore
    • Large Bond increase

You can acquire these gifts in numerous ways: From killing others. Finding them from Data Points (white rotating crystals) when roaming the different areas. From completing side quests, and from exchanging material parts in the shop. The latter is the best way to acquire gifts.

Listed below are a few of these items that we found are the best for specific characters, that can be exchanged in the shop. The list is still a work in progress.
