This article is about the gifts given when a Mii levels up. For ordinary gifts, see Gifts.

A Mii being given a Metal Detector in Tomodachi Life

Level-up gifts are items found in Tomodachi Collection and Tomodachi Life. These gifts are different from the normal gifts that can be given to a Mii at any point. These are only obtained by a Mii leveling up.

These gifts are for the Mii's use in their apartments. In Collection, a Mii can own every gift in the game, as there are exactly eight gifts. In Life, only 8 items may be owned by one Mii. If the player tries to give another, they will have to exchange a gift they already own for the new gift. Multiple Miis can interact with a Mii's gift, and can also join in should they have it too.

Gifts in Collection will be colored the same as the Mii's set favorite color.
