Cereal Box Prize

Every kid loves opening a cereal box to discover a prize.... And even though he's not a kid anymore, I thought my husband might appreciate this little Midweek Romance.

So, I bought a box of his favorite cereal (I know what you're thinking..."Rice Squares?"...yup, he's adventurous, that husband of mine) and carefully opened it so no proof of tampering would be evident when he opened it for the first time. I put his "prize" inside (he'd wanted this DVD for a while) and sealed it back up. I let him pour his cereal before me that day. He saw the label on the box and asked, "Did this come on the box?" I said, "Ya..weird, huh?" He opened it to find his movie and looked at me in disbelief. He still wasn't sure if it came that way from the store or not! (He's not usually this gullible...)


For the prize, you could use a variety of things:

1. A love note
2. A love coupon
3. An item that he/she wants that actually fits in the box
4. Tickets to a movie/event he/she wants to see or go to
5. A favorite candy bar
6. A Lotto Card
7. An invitation for a romantic evening: Love Doctor, Camp out at Home
8. Gift Card to their favorite store (for no reason at all)
9. Gift certificate to a restaurant for that weekend

Oh my gosh, this is such a fun idea as well. Honestly, Cher, how do you come up with all of these?

I'm definitely going to have to use this really soon. My husband has been dying to see Transformers 2 at the IMax. I'm thinking I need to get some tickets asap! Plus, I'm going grocery shopping really soon too. Perfect timing!
