Presents are grab bags that have a 7.69*1/13 (7.69%) chance to be dropped by any enemy (excluding statue spawned) during the Christmas holiday season ( December 15 – December 31 / December 1 – January 15). They are opened by pressing the Open / Activate button on them in the player's inventory, similar to other grab bags. Presents can be opened anytime, even outside the Christmas season.

Presents always appear as blue in the player's inventory. Once placed, the present will appear as a random color.

On the 3DS3DS version version, the old Blue Present.png Blue, Green Present.png Green, and Yellow Present.png Yellow Presents still exist but they cannot be placed. Initially, Presents dropped from Present Mimics could be placed, although they disappeared after placement. They no longer drop, but have not yet been removed from 3DS3DS version. For more information, see Present (furniture).

Notes[]

  • Any enemy that has more than 1 max health, deals more than 0 damage, and drops coins has a chance to drop a Present.[2] Therefore, enemies spawned by statues, enemies from the Old One's Army and Lunar Events, and the Slimer with wings will never drop Presents.
  • Presents can be placed down as furniture. The color of the Present changes each time it is placed down.
  • If a vanity set is dropped, all three parts will drop. The individual pieces never drop alone.

Tips[]

Trivia[]

  • Mobile version After the 1.1.1 Christmas update, nearly any item could erroneously drop from presents.[3] This glitch has since been fixed.
  • One of the variations of a placed Present has the same colors as the old Green Present item.
