Havamal Snippets 41: Reciprocate gifts to kinsmen

It's Wednesday (Woden/Odin's Day) which means that it's time for another verse from the Havamal 'Sayings of the High One - Odin'. The poem full of wisdom, both everyday and ethereal. (The poem can be found in full HERE):
41. With arms and vestments
friends should each other gladden,
those which are in themselves most sightly.
Givers and requiters
are longest friends,
if all (else) goes well.

Reciprocate gifts to kinsmen, be those gifts material or immaterial. It will lead to long lasting friendships.
