Rare Gifts is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This is a radiant quest which requires the Dragonborn to obtain an item for several NPCs.


Questgiver Item Reward
Brand-Shei Lymdrenn Tenvanni's Journal Brand-Shei's Strongbox Key
Captain Aldis The Mirror Leveled amount of GoldIcon
Lami Song of the Alchemists One point Alchemy skill increase
Rustleif Night Falls on Sentinel One point Smithing skill increase
Siddgeir Black-Briar Mead Two or three leveled potions
Torbjorn Shatter-Shield Amulet of Arkay Leveled amount of gold
Ysolda Mammoth Tusk One point Speech skill increase


  • The Mammoth Tusk for Ysolda can be found inside Halted Stream Camp, which has several of them. Alternatively, they can be found on mammoths located at giant camps throughout Skyrim. There is also an easy steal if the Dragonborn heads to Jorrvaskr, in a separate bedroom to the hall, belonging to Vignar; or from on top of a cupboard behind Hulda at The Bannered Mare.
  • The Night Falls on Sentinel for Rustleif can be found in Volunruud or Swindler's Den. A copy can also be found at the at bandit camp called Ilinalta Foothills on top of an end table inside one of the tents, at the beginning of the game, along with the Treasure Map I.
  • The Amulet of Arkay can be found at Wayward Pass.
  • The Black-Briar Mead can be found at the Black-Briar Meadery. Alternatively this item can be bought at most Taverns in Skyrim. The closest seller is The Dead Man's Drink in Falkreath. Another bottle of Black-Briar Mead can be found in the underground area under the castle in Helgen when you escape with Hadvar (it can be found next to a skeleton and a metallic helmet, which both are right by an empty, wooden wagon).
  • The Mirror can be found in the Palace of the Kings, but has to be stolen. Captain Aldis will accept a stolen copy. A copy can also be found on a table in the Forsaken Cave crypt.
  • Song of the Alchemists cannot be obtained without stealing*. After accepting the quest, a copy appears inside Bards College. It is not marked as stolen, but if caught, it will still count as stealing Unless the Dragonborn is a member of the college. It can also be stolen from Anise's Cabin. If this quest is taken when the Dragonborn's Alchemy level is higher than adept level then the Dragonborn will not receive the reward (skill increase).
  • Lymdrenn Tenvanni's Journal can be found inside a water-logged chest on the lower deck of Wreck of The Pride of Tel Vos, southeast of Winterhold.
  • Only one "Rare Gifts" quest can be active at a given time, quest dialogue will not show up with the other characters if another "Rare Gifts" quest is active.
