I would use the receipt and exchange it for something awesome...and dump the guy that bought it ;)

Yesterday night at a dinner party the table spent half an hour discussing whether it submitted by the giver or the recipient!

My vote is giver.

s/100/30, I hadn't thought about that--but it's got to be the recipient, right? Because the idea is "no matter how much you spent on the ring, I still don't believe you really love me."

Though how would the recipient have the receipt?

Hm...

(It could also be, "I love you so much I spent twenty grand on a ring, but I still don't believe you love me, even though you accepted it," I suppose. But...that doesn't make as much sense.)

I think it doesn't make as much sense, at first, because we're both in healthy relationships ;). But I can certainly see the giver being in love with someone while simultaneously knowing that the person is a tad materialistic and doesn't feel as strongly about him, and therefore giving them a large gift that he can only hope will secure the person's love... but not quite believing it. It's a sad case of hoping that the person you love is actually shallow enough to be bought.
