Recently...last night actually...I suddenly snapped, packed up the shirts and stuffed animals my ex boyfriend had given to me, and had my friend drive me over to his house. I wasn't trying to be spiteful about giving back the things he had given to me. I just didn't want to hurt anymore from having his clothes and things he had given me in my room any longer.
We got to his house, I was too nervous to go up to his door my self. (was that a bad idea?) and had my friend give back everything.
I asked what he said once he got back in the car. He told me that he looked at the stuff for a second, said "well thank, man" and tried to shake his hand. My guy friend being the guy he is just said "You're welcome and just walked off."
As we drove off, my ex and his friend were just standing in the doorway watching as I drove off with my friend. I didn't know what to think exactly considering that I couldn't even see his face.
We were driving back home and I decided to text him saying "I'm sorry. I just couldn't hold on to those things without feeling completely hurt inside. It's just helping me get over you."
Was me giving back his stuff the best thing for me to do?
I want your honest opinions please!

Yes, I did it involving no emotions with my ex because well I was p*ssed off he was dumping me for the most immature and insecure reasons. He gave me very nice and expensive gifts such as a brand-name ring and a pricey camera. I gave him very valuable gifts as well but we both never gave them back.
Ironically, ever since we broke up I've used the camera more then ever, taking pictures of all the adventures I've gone on with my friends. I let go of the feelings associated with my ex for the sake of the sweet digital camera haha.
If they are too painful to hold on to, then its better to store them away in a box where you won't go into frequently. Your feelings matter too. I understand completely where you're coming from.0
