In the spirit of generosity, many of us think about passing on things we no longer need to others who might find them useful. It seems like a win-win situation as we free up more space in our home and benefit someone else at the same time. However, an ancient belief warns us against giving away certain things for free. This warning suggests that it can bring unforeseen trouble for both the giver and the receiver.

This wisdom has long maintained that certain things should never be given for free even among family members or close friends.

Jewelry

This advice especially applies to jewelry, both precious and costume jewelry. According to this belief, jewelry absorbs the energy of its owner. Thus, by giving these things away, you may lose some of your own energy.

A similar warning applies when someone gives you jewelry that was previously worn by someone else. There is a potential risk of inheriting that person's problems along with the item. This is especially true for gold, silver, and platinum items.

Clothes and shoes

The things we wear frequently are imbued with our personal energy. That's why giving your clothes or shoes to others can inadvertently mean passing on your happiness and well-being to them.

Conversely, receiving such things from someone else also carries a certain risk. You may unknowingly inherit that person's unhappiness or negative energy. In the case of receiving second-hand clothes, there is a symbolic ritual of purification, which consists in washing things with salt.

Brooms

Although this scenario is not common, there are cases when people give brooms as gifts. Oddly enough, this is best avoided. Thus, refrain from both giving and receiving brooms. If someone insists on giving you a broom, a simple gesture, such as offering a few coins in return, may symbolize a transaction rather than a free gift.

Towels, scarves, and watches

These items have historically symbolized separation and disputes, making them far from ideal gifts. For example, the gift of a watch is associated with the idea of time "running out" in a relationship. Therefore, you should think carefully before giving such things.

Socks

This item refers to new socks, not used ones. According to the belief, giving socks breaks the connection between the giver and the recipient. Thus, by giving socks, especially to a romantic partner, you can unintentionally harm them.
