Thank you for writing in to Just Answer.

It sounds like while your gesture was no doubt well-intentioned, it might have upset your ex-gf because it opens up new questions. Some people prefer to not keep in contact with their exes. And even if they do, they don't like gift giving because it could complicate matters especially if they are already in a relationship.

I would recommend talking to her about what exactly upset her and try to not do that going forward.

I hope this is helpful.

Kind regards,

she has been texting me now again, and is not seeing anybody. we split 3 months ago, but that was my mistake. just trying to arrange a short meeting as friends, is this a good idea?

If you are thinking was pursuing the relationship again then yes it is a good idea.
