This guide will go over how to get married during your initial year in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Lifeincluding which gifts are worth giving to each marriage candidate.
How to Get Married in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life
Marriage is your goal for Chapter 1 of Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life (you can’t even progress to later chapters if you don’t end up marrying by the last day of Year 1). Thankfully, the process of wooing your favorite character is much faster than other games in the series. There are 8 characters that can potentially be married in A Wonderful Liferegardless of gender:
Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life Marriage Candidates
Unlike other characters that only have a friendship meter in the “Resident Info” menu, marriage candidates have an additional Affection meter. This increases when you give them gifts they like — in fact, this is the only way to increase their Affection. You can give multiple gifts to characters per day, though some will not take the same type of gift multiple times (ie you can only give Molly 1 of the flowers she’ll like each day, but Lumina will take 2).
Once you reach Summer of Year 1, the Harvest Sprites will leave a “Blue Feather” in the blue box outside your house (the same one money you earn from selling things goes to). This feather can be given to a marriage candidate once they have at least 8 hearts of affection, regardless of whether you’ve seen any of their events. Even if you don’t confess to any of the characters, you’ll have the option to choose from the characters with high Affection right at the end of Year 1. As long as you give a few characters items every now and then, you shouldn’t have to worry about finding a partner before Year 2.

Best Gifts for Cecilia in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life
Flowers are the best gift to give Cecilia, as they’re free to pick up around town. She’ll take any of them once a day. If you want to speed things up even more, you can also give her crops or eggs once a day as well.
Best Gifts for Molly in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life
Molly likes some flowers, but not all. You can give her 1 Toy Flower or Goddess Drop Flower per day, so make sure to gather these whenever they’re growing around town. She’ll also take 1 Milk per day, or the Coins you can gather from the Dig Site.
Best Gifts for Nami in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life
Nami doesn’t like flowers, so your best bet is the Clay Figurines and Leaf Fossils that can be gathered from the Dig Site. She’ll also take any crop once a day if you have any spare.
Best Gifts for Lumina in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life
Lumina loves flowers, and will take 2 of any day.
