Perhaps giving it back would be a good start for your recovery process. I feel like I wouldn't want to keep it because of the crappy symbolism behind it. You take care of yourself and enjoy your new year! Who knows who you'll meet in the future OP!

he gave it to you! it is yours. he has no claim on it unless you want to give it back. maybe instead of keeping it, you should see about getting rid of it so its not a constant reminder.

Did you give him a present? Cause I can't blame him that much if you haven't given him anything. Especially if the gift was only supposed to be opened on the 25th.

That said, unless that was the case, it does sound like he is being a dick. Especially as it sounds like it was his choice to break up.

How does it matter if the OP gave him a present? Giving gifts to get them in return is just dumb and childish.

In my opinion, once you've given someone the gift you chose them it's no longer yours even if you're a petulant child and want it back later. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Doesn't matter, taking back gifts is incredibly bad manners. Plus, you shouldn't give gifts expecting something in return! Shouldn't be the point of giving.

If they were supposed to wait until Xmas, then how did they get ahold of the present: steal it from under the tree? I'm guessing he gifted early. Which is almost worse bc if he would've waited, he could've changed his mind. Now is too late. But, meh, maybe he's just looking for an excuse to meet up.
Psst. Wonder what the gift is. Hope it's hella expensive.

Don't return the gift: You have a 0% chance of ever getting back together with him, but a 100% chance of keeping the gift.

Meet him to return the gift: You might have a 5% chance of getting him back and an 8% chance of keeping the gift.
