Hello, This weekend I plan on proposing to my girlfriend at the tip of Belle Isle Park in Detroit (she is American & I am Canadian, so its in a river seperating the countries). I have always given her Kinder Suprise Eggs when she comes over to Canada (as they are illegal in the US, she loves the toys, and chocolate is her favourite). So, with that said, I planned on taking apart a Kinder Surprise and using it as a means to propose. Here is my question. Would it be better to:
— Put the ring in the kinder egg, and have her see it right away (like i’ve seen on some youtube videos). This is a nice surprise as the “toy” is the prize, and what better surprise than a ring. However, it doesn’t allow me to say anything.
–OR, put something in the egg, like a note outlining the date of our first contact, first date, first kiss, date becoming a couple, and date I decide to propose to her (and have this date). Then when she reads that I can say a few words, get down on a knee and produce the ring.
I’m sure either option will work, but what would you rather have happen if this was you?

Dont put it in the egg unless you are sure it wont fall out when bites into the egg.

I would put in the note; that way you can have your nice moment and say what you want to say before she sees the ring and freaks out! Also, I wouldn’t want to put the ring in the egg just in case it falls out or something when she cracks it open. The whole thing is so sweet though, and I hope it all goes well!!

Aw this is so cute, good luck! I’d put the note in the egg and the produce the ring as she reads it. 🙂

I love Kinder Eggs and both ideas! I would do the note though…because I was so caught off guard when my husband proposed and I wish I’d had a sense of knowing what was happening so I could have listened better to what he was saying instead of just “uhh, there’s a ring–is this happening?!” and being so distracted. I would think that would be sweet and set the mood and be awesome. And I would personally treasure the note forever.
But either way–it’s a winner 🙂

Omg this is so clever, I love it!!!! I think the note would be better and then you can present the ring after you get over the hump of talking.

I am absolutely in loooove with this idea. It’s so adorable and personal and I know it’ll be a memory you’ll both cherish. I love the drama of the ring being inside, but just for safety it’s probably smarter to just have the note. Can’t wait for an update on this story!

This is exactly how my husband proposed on an easter egg hunt. He put the ring inside the plastic egg and I so wasn’t expecting it to be there as it looked like no one had opened it before me

mrstseluyu : that’s actually not how kinder eggs work, so that isn’t a possibility luckily! They come apart into two halves, and there is a plastic container inside that contains the toy…or bling 🙂
FYI for American Bees, these are actually banned in the U.S.

I LOVE this–so adorable. I would put the ring inside the egg (the plastic container). It’s more exciting and is more true to the overall idea!

slotwima : as cute as this is, they will confiscate your kinder egg at the border if they find it 😉 they’re illegal contreband in the US
as such, I would go with the note just incase 🙂

Thanks for the reply. My understanding is they will not confiscate the egg if found, but will instead open it and remove the plastic inside from the egg, thus making it two objects and not possible to swallow (a fairly large fine would then exist, which I’m fine with if it came to that).

slotwima : I have a friend who was proposed to this same way! He put a note that said “Will you marry me” inside as the “toy”, and the ring was stowed safely in his pocket. As soon as she opened the plastic egg containing the note, he got down on one knee and had the ring out when she looked up. It’s a very sweet story 🙂

I would put the ring in the egg, definitely! I think that will be more fun/more of a surprise 🙂

When I imagine her telling the story of the proposal…I think her finding the ring in the egg is cuter as opposed to the note.
