Default for the ladies: do you prefer ring in hand or box at proposal

Hey all, Simple question, mostly geared at the ladies...

1. Would you prefer when you are being proposed to, that he has the ring in the box, open facing you with the whole "down on one knee" formal "will you marry me" deal?

--or--

2. Do you think it's better, or more personal, to have the ring in the guys hand, as he is on one knee, doing the whole proposal?

I guess option 3. would include the whole "gift" or hidden treasure idea, making her unwrap it or find it. Personally, I don't like this idea, and would probably only consider it if I was really young, as it seems kind of childish/teenager-like.

update: I did it with the ring in the box. To us, the box has sentimental meaning. If you read my other post about how i propsed you will see what i mean.
