Hats are cosmetic items in Stardew Valley that have no function in the game other than to look cool. However, some of the hats in the game do look really cool. Since there is a multiplayer mode in Stardew Valley where players can team up with their friends, it can be worth it to go to the extreme lengths required to get some of these hats for bragging rights. If the player so chooses, the game can go on even after getting to the ending, so looking fancy is part of the fun.

In Stardew Valley, hats are unlocked in a variety of different ways. Many of the hats can be purchased from the Hat Mouse, who shows up in the Abandoned House after the player earns their first achievement. The Hat Mouse sells hats for 1,000g once the player completes the corresponding achievement, so keep checking back periodically throughout the game.


A considerable number of Stardew Valley hats can be obtained from tailoring, instead of through achievements. Once the player obtains Cloth, Emily lets them use the sewing machine in her house. Here they can make hats, as well as other clothing items, if they have the right materials. Since there are so many different types of hats available, chances are the player will be able to make some sort of hat with the materials they have on hand.

It’s likely not a realistic goal to get every hat in Stardew Valley. Many of these can be obtained through normal gameplay, but they can only wear one hat at a time. So, find one that looks the most stylish, and wear it proudly, or wear a different hat for every day of the week.

Stardew Valley is available now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Linux, Android, and iOS.
