can i exchange a croisette (xmas gift) for something else w/out receipt? HELP!

Aug 7, 2006
My mother in law gave me a brand new black epi leather croisette as a gift for be honest, although it is nice, it really isn't my style and I just don't want it...but being my mother in law, i really can't ask her for the receipt you think i could take it into LV and exchange it for something more my style or even credit or something? I'm sure they can authenticate it and am 100% sure she would never ever buy a fake...DH said she bought it for me on her recent trip to France...

thanks for your advice!
