My girlfriend bought me a playstation 3 for christmas. Now

Customer Question

My girlfriend bought me a playstation 3 for christmas. Now that weve broken up she is trying to take it saying that its hers because she paid for it. Do I have any legal rights to it or is it hers?

If she bought it for you as a present, it is yours to keep.

so what can i do if she tries to take it when she moves out? what would be my next course of action?
Expert:  MDLaw replied 7 years ago.
If she tries to take it, it would be considered theft. If she takes it, you would have to sue her in small claims court to recover it.
