The Eternal Gifting Etiquette Question   Gifts, Wishes and Random Pleas for Help

I think that whatever you want to do with your friends is OK, but when I was asking for new friends I made it clear what my gifting plans were.  I have a core group that I gift to, and then a bunch of Event Friends that I got with no intention to gift (though they may very rarely get something, usually because I'm trying to balance my inventory). 

One of my favourite things to gift are items that I can buy for a few diamonds (6 or less).  I'm working on the Market Master badge and very rarely find something I think is worth spending them on for myself (I'm at quite a low level), but for my friends it feels good.

Now I'm facing a bit of a dilemma, because my core group has had several people disappear, and I'd like to add some more, and I wish there was a way to know if any of my Event Friends would like to be on my gifting list, but am not at all sure how to figure that out.

Are there any Event items you need to buy? If not NuttyNana usually has a couple of things. I'm after Destiny Keys at the moment if that's any help.

I'm all good for event items.  At least, I have some of each.  Some I wish I had more of, mostly Holiday Wands.  I have some of those, but not nearly as many as I think I'll need for gathering eggs for the Consortium again this Christmas.  But too many that I don't feel OK sharding/selling them to be able to purchase some come the Winter Event, especially since many people were gifting them to me to help out the Consortium.

I've added NuttyNana to my gifting list.

I must admit, gifting was the one thing that worried me most - was I gifting enough, was I gifting the right thing

I feel the same way.  I am probably a horrible gifter, although I try to do it every day.  Did I gift this person, or that one? Did I forget someone? I don't want to feel like I have to keep long lists of who gave me what and when.  After all, it IS a game!   Am I wrong?

I don’t think you are wrong at all. When I first found this forum I didn’t know about friends or gifting. There have always been quite a few discussions about gifting, and reading them all I think I put all the pressure on myself. Somewhere along the way I got it into my head that if I received a gift from someone, I had to gift them back.

Now I look at gifting totally differently. I gift because I enjoy it, with no expectation of a return gift. I go through my list alphabetically, just keeping a note in my phone of the last person I gifted. If I miss someone because they don’t have a list up, I don’t worry about it and hope to catch them on the next cycle. I no longer keep a list of who sends me gifts, because I know everyone who has a list up will get a gift. 

This may not work for everyone, as some people have event friends that don’t want to receive gifts, but I have found it much easier.

As you have said, it’s just a game. So my advice would be just do what works for you.

Everyone plays their own way. I happen to enjoy making lists, but even so it can be confusing. So play however you feel comfortable and don't stress about gifts.

Does anyone know if the Raven eggs are needed for anything other than crafting the Raven itself?  Will there be something in later levels/areas that require them?

Event items have so far never been required in normal quests and crafting.

Some have been used in later events but the very specific items connected with a certain pet were always used for that one pet only.

It is therefore highly unlikely that you will need those eggs ever again
