I don't know if you can get your items back as you traded outside the steam trading system, it's set up specifically to avoid these type of scams.

Contact Steam Support and explain to them what has happened, you might be lucky and get your items back but don't count on it and make sure you report the profile of the scammer to try and avoid anyone else being scammed.

Contact Support. But you may not get your items back because you were trading outside the system. Remember, if it doesn't fit in one trade window, DON'T TRADE.

The window made clear that you'll gift the stuff. So just take that as a lesson.

You must have clicked this is a gift. You gave the items away for free.
