Stardew Valley Sebastian Gift Guide – How to Romance Sebastian in Stardew Valley

One of the most prominent themes of Stardew Valley is freedom. Removing yourself from the shackles of a sterile and uncaring corporate machine to tend the earth is, on its own, enough to appeal to the most stone-hearted of us. But that throughline touches on much more than growing crops. In Stardew Valley there is no ultimate end-game goal outside of “have fun.” Yes, you can fish, fight monsters in the mine, rebuild the community center, and more, but it’s never a requirement. You can pursue any and all activities at your leisure.

Freedom.

This philosophy extends to romance, as well. There are 12 single villagers in Pelican Town that you can romance and eventually marry via the game’s Friendship system. One of the potential love interests is Sebastian, the reclusive son of Robin the carpenter. In this guide, we’ll run down Sebastian’s favorite gifts, his schedule, and all of his Friendship heart events.
