WVC 36 - 1 - 5 §36-1-5. Gifts of personal property.
No gift of any goods or chattels shall be valid unless made by writing, signed by the donor or his agent, or by will, or unless actual possession shall have come to and remained with the donee or some person holding for or under him. If the donor and donee reside together at the time of the gift, possession at the place of their residence shall not be a sufficient possession within the meaning of this section. The requirements of this section shall not apply to the wife's paraphernalia. No seal shall be necessary to give validity to a gift of goods or chattels by writing, as hereinbefore provided.
