“These wooden coins are based on the SHMILY story, where a couple wrote “SHMILY” to each other for years to tell each other “See How Much I Love You!””
I LOVE the concept of the SHMILY coin. My family has had fun coming up with ideas on how to surprise each other with this coin and show how much we love everyone. below are just a few ways we have used this as a family.
For my first time surprising Chris with the coin I made the bed all nice and neat and placed the coin on his pillow. When he came to bed that night he said, “Hey, what is this?” with a huge smile on his face. I smiled and said, “I love you”.
Chris, a few days later surprised me by having all the dishes done before I could touch them. He knows I hate dishes and I know he doesn’t have a lot of time to do them so this meant a lot to me. Lee loved watching us do nice things for each other that she decided that during nap time she would get up and clean the whole playroom. The playroom was a complete MESS and I didn’t look forward to cleaning it after nap. When I came down Lee was standing there with a HUGE smile on her face and said, “I cleaned the playroom for you mommy, see how much I love you!” Ok, that made me cry, she was so sweet, she even gave me a big hug.
Some other ideas we had were to have someone sweep the kitchen floor and tape the coin on the handle of the broom for the next person to find it, maybe we could place the coin under a shampoo bottle so when they go to shower they find it or maybe place it on the steering wheel in the car so when Chris goes to work int he morning he can have a small reminder of how much I love him.
There are endless possibilities of how you can show your loved ones how much you love them. These would make perfect stocking stuffers and would even be cute to include in your children’s/grandchildren’s Halloween bag or maybe have 1-2 coins around to put in your kid’s lunch bags. I love the idea of this coin and how it encourages us to be creative in showing our love for one another. I think sometimes we get stuck in a rut and just assume the other person knows we love them. Why not purchase a coin and surprise your loved one today? It’s soooooo worth the smiles, hugs and laughter you get with using the SHMILY coin.
