On Valentines day I was caught flat footed and without a gift for my companion. His name is Qyzen Fess and I knew that he didn't want chocolates and flowers. So I decided to get him a Complete Camping Set, which is a level 2 companion gift, only to find that he didn't like it. So there went my romantic weekend in the hills of Alderaan. So I've spent the last week putting together a resource for companion gifts. I was really surprised at how getting the right gift at the right level range could go a long way.
There are 10 types of gifts and they are categorized into:
Courting, Cultural Artifact, Imperial Memorabilia, Luxury, Military, Republic Memorabilia, Trophy, Technology, Underworld Goods and Weapon.
Here is an outline for Gift Rank based upon Affection Level:
Affection Level Gift Rank
1 (0-1.999) Rank 1 or higher
2 (2.000-3.999) Rank 2 or higher
3 (4.000-5.999) Rank 3 or higher
4 (6.000-7.999) Rank 4 or higher
5 (8.000-9.999) Rank 5
For a great description on Companion gifts head over to our friends at OldRepulic.Net. They have a really nice and easy to read list of all companions:
If you want a specific list of gifts tailored to your companion, then head over to SWTOR Spy at: http://www.swtor-spy.com/companions/
And finally the definitive guild to Crew Skills can be found at SWTORCrewSkills.com. I would recommend checking out their Crew Skills Crafting Chart before picking your crew skills so you can pick the best combination: http://www.swtorcrewskills.com/
With the right gift you can quickly level up the affection your companion has for you which increases their effectiveness at crew skills. This can in turn make you a lot of credits.
I hope this helps,
