How To Romance Alex in Stardew Valley: Best Gifts and Schedule

Alex has a strict regimen so he can stay in peak physical condition for football. Unfortunately, this takes up a lot of his time. You'll often find him hanging out with Haley or practicing. Let's see how to get you to be a part of that lifestyle.

  • Primary Location: East side of Pelican Town, in George and Evelyn's house.
  • Birthday: Summer 13

Gifts

Besides the universal love, Alex only loves things that help him stay fit and ready for the next game. Winning his affection this way is limited, but if you find him the right gifts, you'll grow on him fast!

  • Complete Breakfast
  • Salmon Dinner
