Throughout Thedas, the great holiday of Satinalia is marked by sumptuous feasts, wild celebration, and naming the town fool as ruler for a day. Amid the feasting, it is customary for friends, lovers, and traveling companions to exchange gifts and pranks. ―Official description[1]

Feastday Gifts and Feastday Pranks are downloadable content packs for Dragon Age: Origins. The gifts and pranks are fun items which allow the player to "mess around" with the party approval system. The items can be purchased from Bodahn Feddic in the Party Camp. Each companion has a unique gift and prank. Many of the items are either usable or can be equipped and possess amusing effects. Most items are restricted to a specific companion. The gifts give Approves (+50), while the pranks give Disapproves (-50).

The DLC packs were fittingly released on April 1, 2010—in other words, on April Fools' Day. Each pack is currently available separately on the Xbox Live Marketplace, the PC, and the PlayStation Store, and can also be purchased as a combined Gifts and Pranks pack.

Both "Feastday Gifts" and "Feastday Pranks" are listed as quests to be completed under the Downloadable Content category. In order to complete the "quests" one must buy at least one gift and one prank from Bodahn. This will complete the quest; the items don't actually need to be given and may be destroyed or sold.
