Gift to granddaughter

We gave our granddaughter a day bed and when she no longer wanted it does it go back to the grandparents or to her mother and father. My daughter insists it is hers now, however I do not agree.

Hello Diane,

Thank you for this interesting question. The operative word here is "gave". The gifted bed belongs to the recipient unless everyone agreed you could take your gift back when it was no longer needed. It is very poor manners indeed to request the return of a gift - under any circumstances.
