    Why Give Gifts

    In Cult of the Lamb, your strength is largely determined by how devoted your Followers are. Thus, you’ll want to raise your Followers’ loyalty as much as possible. Every time one of your Followers gains a loyalty level, you receive a Commandment Stone Fragment. These can be used to declare new Doctrines for your cult. The Doctrines have various types of benefits, including better productivity, a rise in Faith, and much more.

    Where to Find Gifts

    Gifts can appear in different places during your runs through the dungeons in Cult of the Lamb. Sometimes, Gifts will be in Chests once you’ve completed a room. Additionally, you can find Gifts in boxes or barrels in certain Event rooms. Lastly, you can get Gifts as a reward for completing a run.

    There are Small Gifts, Big Gifts, and Necklaces that can be given as a gift in Cult of the Lamb. While Small Gifts and Big Gifts simply raise a Follower’s loyalty level, Necklaces can do this while also giving the Follower certain abilities after they put on the Necklace. Some of these abilities include higher productivity, the ability to skip sleeping, and more.

    Gift Sizes

    You’ll notice that some Gifts are labeled “Small Gift” while others are labeled “Big Gift.” The Gift sizes simply indicate how much the Follower’s loyalty bar will rise upon receiving it. So, Big Gifts will raise a Follower’s loyalty bar more than a Small Gift.
