After you break up with a guy?

Obviously tee shirts and sweaters go back, but what about the pretty necklace? or the teddy bear? I’ve only ever had really easy breakups so…i’m a little lost on this one haha

if they gave it to you, it is yours. as they said, unless it is a major piece (engagement) then keep it. or sell it. or donate it. etc. i speak from experience. it is yours to keep. i wear mine, but it bears no significance to me and it doesn’t remind me of my exes, but for some people they can’t dissociate so they end up getting rid of it.

Keep it, it was bought for you and your taste. If he asks for it back, dont make any comment just give it back, proves that he is quite childish and tight with cash…and you dont want that type of guy.

I think it depens on when he gave it to you. If it was a recent gift, I’d give it back but if you’ve had it for at least a few months, keep it.

My view is only give it back if the guy asks for it. If it’s been a couple of months and he hasn’t asked then decide whether you want to keep it or sell it. The only thing this doesn’t apply for is engagement rings, you’re generally supposed to give the engagement ring back after a break up.

Usually they refuse to take the stuff back, so I just throw it in the garbage. Since this guy is officially out of my life then so are his gifts.

i threw everything away or donated it. i actually threw the promise ring over a fence. i wouldn’t recommend doing that though. it might be considered littering and i probably could have sold it. haha

I kept all of the jewelry (they were gifts, after all!) and traded them in at a jewelry store for something that i actually liked ;o)

I wouldn’t give it back. I doubt they would want it.

I kept 2 things I really liked and gave all his other gifts away.
But I personally have trouble with wearing it.
(I have these 2 beautiful necklaces from an ex,
and I’ve hung on to them for a while not wearing them ever, in the hopes that
whatever weird vibes I get from them now will go away in future.)

Don’t give it back. Keep it unless it is an engagement ring and you broke off the engagement. If he broke it off, you get to keep the ring.

tshirts and sweaters- give back if you borrowed them from him, but a decent guy might not want them either, because he might have replaced them.
but if he bought you some clothes that fit you, that were for you, why would you give them back? what can he do with them? wear them himself? LOL we might sell them on ebay or re-gift them? tacky.
only the jewelry should be given back if he asks for it, and i’ll add if its real gold, real diamonds, and so on.

depends on the breakup I guess. I have known people who gave back jewelry because looking it made their stomach turn.
In the end though, it was a gift and you should be able to keep it. My last boyfrienbd gave me bracelet and necklace I kept it never wear it because they were heart related items and I have a new boyfriend so it would be weird to wear – might sell it
