I put a gift of diamond earrings under our Christmas tree, and told my wife that the box, with the earrings in it, is her Christmas present and I told her that she cannot open the present until Christmas. A few days before Christmas, my wife and I got in a fight, so I got the present from under the tree, and took it back to the jewelry store to get my $2,400 back. At Christmas, my wife asks me about her present, and I told her that I returned it. Imagine that she tells me that I cannot do that since it was her present. Which of the following is correct?

a. My wife is correct and I owe her the earring or the $2,400.

b. My wife is correct, so answer A is correct and she can turn me in to the police for theft, if she is still upset with me.

c. My wife is not entitled to the earrings, because not all elements of gift law were present.

d. My wife had a legal contract with me and I am responsible for her damages.

e. None of the above.
