No Hint Or Specific Order
When you talk to a villager, a present will be given to them automatically from your bag. You won't have to worry about giving them the right gift in a specific order (like was the case in previous games). You can check how many presents are left in your bag by checking it in your inventory, though.
Get A Reward From Close Friends
If a villager you give a present to has a high friendship level with you, you will get a present in return! This present is usually a color variation of a Toy Day item.Learn More On Friendship Level From Here
