Exclamation Cant add game to my library

I've bought several games in the Summer Sale as gift (in my inventory). I touhgt if I keep them there I still can trade the games with some one else if there is a deal I like more.

But now I want to add them to my library but it only shows an error:

Sorry, an error has occurred:

Unable to add the gift to your game library. The gift may have already been redeemed. Please try again later.

please help.

Keep trying "Add game to my library" (almost like spamming it), same thing happened to me. It usually takes 3-5 times before you see the add game to my library popup.

Just wanted to confirm that this worked for me as well - tried restarting Steam several times, just spamming the "add game to library" button did work though.
