I gave my wife/husband a gift. Is it considered marital property?

“I gave my wife/husband a gift.  Is it considered marital property?”  Most likely the answer is no.  Any gift to one spouse is separate property, unless the property is being transferred into a joint title.  For example, jewelry that is given as a birthday present will be considered as separate property, but if the title of a car is transferred from sole ownership to joint ownership, then the gift is typically considered marital property.
