Intro

This is a FAQ written for those who need help in finding out what to 
give those rather picky villagers in Natsume's Harvest Moon: Back To 
Nature(C).  This is my first FAQ, so bear with me OK ^_^
Back To Nature is an excellent game that blends RPG elements to good o'l 
fashioned farming, so those who don't own this game yet and want to 
experience being on the ranch, better get a copy now!  

I made this FAQ out of my own game experience and what the guys and gals 
of the Boards said, so I know there's a lot more missing, so please E-
Mail me if I missed out on a few.

Please use this FAQ, cause it was HARD trying to see everything they 
like and hate!

-----------------
My Observations
-----------------

Most of the middle age men like wine, so you might want to give them 
some.  But, at 300g a pop, might not be too good for your wallet...

A lot of them like Spa-boiled eggs.  So pick up maybe 3 or more eggs, 
toss them in the Hot Springs to boil them, and pass them around the 
village.

Most of the girls you can marry like flowers.  It's the cheapest way to 
get them to like you, since you can pick some near Gotz's house and the 
base of mother's hill (except winter).

Except Gray and Saibara, almost all hate ores, so better avoid 
accidentaly giving the villagers ores.

They seem to like it better when you gift-wrap their favorites and give 
it to them on their birthday.
