If you have added neighbours to your village (either via Facebook or Game Center), you can give a gift to each of them every 24 hours and there is a variety of gifts available, all with different values and benefits. The following list should help you to find the perfect gift for your neighbours. Some gifts give a lot of XP, some Coins and some of them are permanent while others, like cakes or potions, are temporary because the Smurfs eat them.
A gift should always be placed in the village after opening the present box, because only then the XP/Coins are given. Once a gift has been placed it can safely be deleted again, the XP/Coins will not be taken away. (For example if you receive a lot of potted plants, you can just keep (or store) as many as you need and delete the others after placing them).
Another update of the game (version 1.1.3) added a new indicator, so it will be easier to see who of your friends have not gotten a gift within the last 24 hours. In the neighbours map, there is now a little gift/present box sign next to the village banner of the neighbour. If the gift box is there, you are able to give that friend a gift, if it is not there, you already gave that neighbour a gift and will have to wait a while before you can gift again.
WARNING! In version 188.8.131.52 the orange, yellow and green gift potions have disappeared due to a bug in the update, for more information please click here .
