A Book with a Secret
Your intended will open a Valentines gift to reveal a book of love poetry. Most of the pages will be stuck together, but in the one place it opens, a slot will be cut out with the engagement ring inside.
The Language of Love
In a small blank book, write will you marry me? in a different language on each page. Start with the language your sweetheart knows the least, and lead up to her his native language.
Here are a few examples, although you might choose to add more translations.
Spanish: Te Casas Conmigo?
Esperanto to a woman Cu vi edzini?us kun mi? to a man Cu vi edzi?us kun mi?
Japanese: watashito kekkon shite kuremasuka?
Finnish: Haluatko naida minut?
German: Willst Du mich heiraten?
Italian: lo sposerete?
French: Veux tu mepouser?
Portuguese: Queres casar comigo?
