Currently you can only make sky gifts out of trinkets of rarities 1-4. This seems rather arbitrary, and excludes the higher rarities for no good reason.

The way I would solve this is with an intermediate step when making sky gifts. Rarity 1 trinkets are worth 1, rarity 2 is worth 2 and so on. But you have to create a whole sky gift at a time. What if you first hard to convert your trinkets into "sky gift material" and then later you spent your sky gift materials when sending sky gifts.

This would mean that you could both generalize making sky gifts to higher rarities, and you would be able to send sky gifts without needing to have 24+ of a rarity 1 trinket, 12+ of a rarity 2 trinket and so on to be able to send sky gifts.

Furthermore I think this would easily combine into some quality of life updates to make sending sky gifts easier. For one, you could select any quantity for each trinket and convert that many trinkets into sky gift materials at once. Maybe you could even convert all trinkets you are currently viewing at the same time.

Once you have a huge stack of sky gift materials you could send multiple sky gifts in one fell swoop.

I was just about to make a similar suggestion and it seems redundant to do so when this is still on the first page, so I hope replying to this so much later is kosher. Since it was stated in this thread that the number of trinkets on the site was contributing to lag, and converting trinkets into sky gifts effectively reduces them in number, making more trinkets eligible to be sky gift materials seems like the perfect solution to that.

Maybe only trinkets of rarity 9 or 10 could be locked out of being turned into sky gifts, since their rarity means that people are likely to only have a small number of any trinket in those tiers. I know I have double-digit numbers of some trinkets up to rarity 7 or 8 that are just sitting around, and if they're clogging up the site I'd like to use them for something nice for other users.
