To get the Dream Hat in the 2006, you simply buy it. The one for Bastok is in Port Bastok, near the North Gustaburg zone. San'doria is in Northern San d'oria, near the Ronfaure zone. And...I'm not sure about Windurst. Sorry about that. =S

It costs 10k. You can also buy all 3 Christmas Trees for 10k each too.

As for the Dream Hat +1...I'm not sure how to get it.

Okay, it's been 3 days and I still haven't gotten the special present.

I got my Bastok tree, stuffed it in my mog, did the letter quest, then gave presents until i had caravans of fame, then i used the moogle warp. Next day I went into my Bastok mog house and no special present, so I passed out more gifts until I was sure I had max again. Next day, nothing under the tree. Help? Do I need more than 1 tree?

This is exactly how i got my dreamhat +1
My hometown is Bastok
I got the Sandoria tree first, then the bastok tree and the Windhurst tree last.
i traveled back to Sandoria
i delivered 6 presents in Sandoria to 6 different children
I waited each full game day for the smilebringer to give me a free present delivering them one at a time. i purchased one $1500 present for a total of 6.. after the 6th present i checked the moogles message near the Auction House in South Sandoria.
He told me i have brought Caravan loads of joy
i took my chocobo to Bastok
canceled my rentaroom in sandoria. and waited for the next game day. i checked my moogle house and he told me i had a special present which came from under the windhurtian tree..

Has anyone tried giving away the Special Present to a kid? It will let you put the present into the Trade box (not always true for rare/ex items), but I chickened out before doing it, and I don't have an alt I can use.

Just something to try, if you dare.

Getting the Dream Hat +1
# Dec 19 2004 at 2:20 PM Rating: Decent

Well, I spent 3 days trying to get the Dream Hat +1 doing everything I could think of, so I will break down here what worked for me and what didn't.

I started out going to each of the cities and handing each child one gift. That didn't work. While I was handing out gifts, managed to get all 3 of the trees.

Then, someone told me I needed to go back to my home city (San D'Oria). I went back to Sandy, bought a stack of the expensive gifts and went to check my mog house. Still nothing from my moogle, so I handed out the gifts I had to 3 children (random, doesn't matter which ones). I kept checking back at my mog house and still nothing from my moogle yet. Handed out another EX present and a stack of the 500 gil a piece presents. I checked the Moogle in South San D'Oria to see how much festive fame I had, and his reply was that I had brought caravans loaded with ludicrous amounts of joy to the children. Once I got this message, my festive fame was maxed, so I stopped handing out presents. Went to hunt for a bit and apporximately 2 Vana'diel days later checked back at my mog house and my moogle said he had found a present under the tree. Ta Da! My dream hat +1!

My husband handed out presents in San D'Oria as well until he got the same message about the caravans of joy from the South Sandy Moogle, and he got his hat +1 as well. The thing about him getting it is he only had the tree from San D'Oria and only handed out presents there.

So, basically through trial and error I have discovered the actual way to get the Dream Hat +1 is to hand out gifts to the children in your home city until you get the caravan of joy message from the moogle, and have the tree for your home city in your mog house layout, then wait about one Vana'Diel day at least. Visit your mog house and talk to your moogle and he should say you get the hat. You have to get the message about the caravans of joy though to get the hat +1, I didn't get the hat until I got that message from the moogle, and trust me I tried for 3 days to get it.

Actually, from what I've seen, it doesn't matter which city you give out presents in. The key is to max your Festival Fame. The cheapest (and fastest/easiest imo) way to do that is to just go to the smile bringer every game day and get a free ex present. Those presents give the most Festival Fame and you only need 4-5 before you max fame.

Ok, I have gotten the Dream Hat, Dream Hat +1, and all three Chirstmas Trees.

First, for the Dream Hat you must:

Talk to the event moogle who will tell you that the smile bringer has been handing out gifts. The moogle will then tell you the number of kids and which areas to find them.
Ex: 2 in South San d'Oria, 1 in North San d'Oria, and 0 in Port San d'Oria.

The kids are randomly picked. You will have to talk to all the kids in the areas untill you have gotten 3 letters.

REMEMBER TO WRITE DOWN EACH KID'S NAME AND THE NAME OF THE LETTER THEY GAVE YOU

Once you have all three, go to the smile bringer and trade him the letters. He/She will ask you who gave you each letter and will then give you your dream hat.

He/She will then give you an Ex "Present for the Kiddies" You must buy more presents from the smile bringer. The presents each give you a different amount of joy fame based on they're price. (100gil, 550gil, and about 1,300gil)

NOTE: You can get an Ex "Present for the Kiddies" for free each in-game day. These boost your joy fame more than the other gifts, so if you don't feel like spending gil you can do this.

You then trade the presents to the kids in town with your dream hat equiped to build joy fame.

NOTE: At this point you should do the tree quest for your town before you continue with the smile bringer.

The NPC to start the tree quest is in the Port of every town. The locations are as follows:

San d'Oria: Port, infront of boxes up by the airship entrance.

Windurst: Port, on the left wall by the gate leading out to Sarutabaruta West.

Bastok: Port, by the big tree across from the bridge leading to the residential area.

The NPC will tell you that they need supplys from the local market moogle. You must run/flee/warp to the market moogle (which will be just outside the residential area) and talk to him. He will give you a Rare/Ex item to take back to the tree person. Trade the item to the NPC and you get your tree(Trees are Rare and can be put into the AH or in a bazaar). You can now put your tree in your mog house and resume the present giving.

You can give your presents to any kid in town. It does not matter (I gave all my presents to one kid XD ). To get the dream hat +1 you must have max joy fame ("Caravans of Joy" will be the message from the moogle). Once you have max fame just wait one in-game day and enter your mog house. Your moogle will tell you that it found special gift under your tree. Open the present to get your Dream Hat +1.

NOTE: You do not need all three christmas trees to get the Dream Hat +1. You should only get your hometown one and give out the presents to kids in your hometown. Having the moogle teleport you to different towns will lower your joy fame so wait until after you have your +1 hat to get the other trees.

Thank you for taking time to read this post. If my information has helped you please feel free to rate me up ^^

It seems to be random as to which kids you have to talk to to get your hat like someone previously mentioned. I've done this quest twice in Lastok, once with my main character (Wynnia) and a second time with a mule. So far, these are the kids I've found:

Smilebringer - Christina (I-9)

Bastok Mines:
Valeri Right next to the AH (J-8)

Bastok Markets:
Emrys
Arawn
Both are at (J-10) near the Music Shop

Bastok Metalworks:
Folzen (F-8)

Port Bastok:
Dehlnet Under the scaffolding at (H-5)

Other possible children are
Gwill (Bastok Markets E-11)
Patricius (Bastok Metalworks H-8)
Remus (Bastok Metalworks G-9)
Rothais (Bastok Markets L-8)
Vaghron (???)

OK, I have gotten one for each of 2 Characters.

Simply put Have one of the trees in your MH. Max Joy is NOT NEEDED!!! On my mule I Got only the Sandy Tree and saved up about 8 EX presents (gotten for free from Smilebringer once per in game Day) I had Traded about 6 of the presents to Random Kids and was passing trough MH to use Exit Upgrade to get to another area and talked to my Moogle. He had found a Special Present Under one of the Trees. I steped out of my MH and used the Special Present and it made like the Sky Rider firework. I checked My inventory and the Dream Hat +1 was there.

Joy was not Maxed as I could still Trade Presents to kids. I logged into my Main that was no longer at Max Joy and Got the Special Present right away ^^

You only need 4-5 EX Presents traded to get Max Fame.
The message you receive when a single child has too
many presents has nothing to do with fame, but keeps people
from attempting to spam as many 100 gil presents
as possible.

You said yourself you traded about 6 EX Presents.
Must be noted that to obtain the Dream Hat +1, you
must wait until AFTER Jp time midnight (around 10AM PST, 11 MST, noon CST, 1pm EST) before the
moogle will give you the message (ie the same time
for which Conquest updates are tallied if it were
a Sunday morning/afternoon).

Okay, I just got my Dream Hat +1. It took me about 18 hours with max Joy fame. Also I don't think its necessary to have the Tree from your home nation so long as you have "A" tree set up in your mog house. I'm Bastokan and have all three trees in my house, but the moogle told me the present came out from under the Windurstian Tree.

Finally, the number of Ginger Cookies you get each day from the hat seems to be random. I used it and got three cookies myself. Very good for a blm like me ^^

Ok, I am on Diabolos and I got my dream hat +1 tonite with only a tad bit amount of fame. From what me and my LS think, it's not a set amount of fame, but a random amount based on each person. So for those of you who are spending tons of money on presents are totally wrong, BECAUSE this is only the first event...there are likely more events coming soon, but everyone needs to be patient (which many people in this game lack for some reason.) I know I had to wait a full earth day (don't know how man game days) for my special presetn to show up. If you want to give presents to the kids, just wait for each game day to roll, and talk to a smile bringer for the EX present. That gives you bushells of joy. I gave up 5 of these and had no trouble, and I only had the sandorian tree.

How to get a DHat +1

Well a summary of all the post of those who got it and my experiences as i got it:

You need to get an ordinary Dream Hat, which is achieved by collecting 3 letters from 3 random children anywhere in your hometown, after you've talked to the moogle at one of your town's entrances. Remeber the names of those children well. After you got all these letters trade them in one turn to the "smile bringers" These are found:

In Sandy: At the Zone EastRonfaure-NorthSandoria
In Windy: At the Zone WestSarutabaruta-WindurstWaters
In Bastok: At the Zone Gustaberg-BastokMines

I'm not quite sure about the one in Bastok, b/c i haven't really seen him, but i were at all the other entrances and he wasn't there so i expect him to be in the Mines district.

After you've given him the letters he will ask you about the names of the children that gave'em to you. Answer correctly and he will give you the Dream Hat. Then you have to get the Tree of your home town. I won't declare every pos of the craftsmen, since they are always somewhere around any entrances of the towns just like the smilebringers.
To do this lil'quest you'll have to be able to use warp or flee, or just be a VERY clever runner. Except of the bastokan Tree-guest i think i woulnd't have done it w/o warping. Just get the item the craftsman needs (it's recommended to discover the area and make out the pos of the market moogles and quickest ways to them, before you talk to the treecrafter), and he'll make you your tree, hurry up and put it into your room, so it has been there for a while when you get back from acting the santa clause. ^^

You only need the tree of your hometown, as it's been said already. I also recommend to not warp around by moogles to other towns since i think that uses invisible points you get when trading presents to kids.

So now you should have got at least 2 or three "exclusive" presents from the smilebringer by talking to him every time you get the chance. i got 5 from him in more or less one day. Then buy around 6-12 (if you really want to be sure buy a stack at the beginning, but i did with 5 exclusives and only 8 other) presents for 1.2k from the smilebringer. Trade them all to the Kids in your town. (doesn't matter to which of them, but make yure you give at least one exclusive to all of the 3 children who gave you the letters.)

After you've spread all your presents you can return to your moghouse, maybe you've spent enough time so you get already the hat +1. If not you might have to wait for another while (some think you have to wait 3 game days or something like that), or maybe you'll have to bring a few more presents to any kiddies.

to do the whole thing, i had about 8k costs, but for 3 nice trees, and 5 cookies per day, not bad at all, and i've forgotten to tell about the fun running around in a crowd of houndreds of PC's with santa heads in all three hometowns... :-D

Well i hope the post helped you to get a dream hat + 1 now for sure. Have fun and enjoy the holiday!

Thats not true with the 3 trees. You only need the tree from your home town in your MH and max "kiddie" fame in your hometown.

I got the tree bough 12x 1.2k presents and gave it only to the kids who gave me a letter. Then i gave them 5 EX presents and my fame was full. I went to bed and next morning my moogle gave me a special present with the hat+1 :p.
Well its finally here

Im on Sylph, and my home country is San d'Oria. I will tell how i got it in sandy

Talk to the moogle that is east of the AH in South sandy. He tells you about 3 kids... find them.

The 3 kids that gave me letters were:
South: Authere (one of the brothers by the tree next to the AH)
North: Taurette (Little girl across from the mithra child who upgrades your mog house exit)
Port: Auvare (lone child next to Air Travel Angency entrance)

Each child gives you a letter. Remember who gave what letter, because that information will be needed later. Once you have the letters, go to North Sandy. next to the W Ron gate, there is a guy wearing white clothes, and a red hat. Trade him all 3 letters. He will then ask who each one is from. Choose the right name from the list he gives you. if you get all 3 correct, you are rewarded with a Dream hat.

I am on the Sylph server and my home country is San d'Oria. I do not know how to get teh hat in the other cities. I do not know if you can get the hat in a city that is not your home.

Good luck, and enjoy your hat ^^

I just did this on my mule (also on sylph and in sandy).

here were the people that I was sent to this time. Apparently, the children are random.

Port: Artinien (Captain of the Royal Guards Youth Division)
Port: Miene (Girl who gives you the eagle button after the robbery)
South: Foletta (The girl by the chocobo stables who explains what a linkshell is)

Good luck on your hunt.

Hmmm. I think each person has a different set of people, they are grouped together, not random. My brother, got that same combination of people, Miene, Folletta, and Artinien. Therefore, if anyone gets one of those children, you know who the other two are. ^^ Good luck everyone!

I had Blendare, Auvare and Artinien. So, though I had Artinien, the other two obviously weren't for me. *shrug*

Also there is a Dream Hat +1 that dispenses unlimited Ginger Cookies at one per every 24 hours. You must get all three trees and have max present fame to get it- you will need the trees in your layout. After a few days go by, you should get a present under your tree.

So you can use the Dream Hat +1 and it will give you a random number of Ginger Cookies EVERY 24 earth hours? That's too good to be true, a reuseable dispensing item? It's impossible that SE would make such a cool item, plus it'll kill the price for them, and make the need for the hat rise. If the hat IS for real, I want it!! ^^

A word of caution: Don't know if it's been confirmed or not, but I wanted to warn people that just because the Dream Hat +1 dispenses unlimited cookies NOW, doesn't mean it will AFTER the event is over.

I learned a similar lesson the hard way, when they turned off the Latent Effect: Warp on the Treat Staff, after Harvest Festival.
