When you mouse over an NPC’s birthday on the calendar, this mod displays an useful tooltip that indicates their favorite presents. This applies to both the calendar furniture piece that you may have in your home and the calendar on the town billboard.

New “Progression” Mode

In this option, you will only see cherished presents that you have already given to an NPC. This mode may be activated via the configuration (see below).

It’s worth noting that you may toggle this mode on and off at any time, and your progress will be saved.

You may also effortlessly choose between sharing known presents between saves and having unique ones every save. Please keep in mind that only gifts given after installing GiftTasteHelper 2.6 or later will be logged.

Simply open the file in any text editor to modify it.
The configuration will be as follows:

  "ShowOnCalendar": true,
  "ShowOnSocialPage": true,
  "ShowOnlyKnownGifts": false,// This enables/disables progression mode.
  "ShareKnownGiftsWithAllSaves": true,// Should known loved gifts be shared between saves or unique per save. Ignored unless ShowOnlyKnownGifts is true. 
  "HideTooltipWhenNoGiftsKnown": false, // Hide the tooltip if you don't know any of that NPC's loved gifts. Ignored unless ShowOnlyKnownGifts is true.
  "MaxGiftsToDisplay": 0, // 0 means no limit.
  "ShowUniversalGifts": true,
  "ColorizeUniversalGiftNames": false, // Color universal gifts blue.
  "ShowGiftsForUnmetNPCs": false // Show gift info for NPCs you haven't met yet.

Just replace true with false and save the file (game must be restarted for changes to take effect) for the menus you don’t want to see the tooltip on and visa versa.
