SHMILY ~ A great way to spread love, share yourself and win something for the whole family!

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!"

In addition to nurturing marriages through this playful game of hiding them for each other to find, SHMILY coins are a great way for families to have fun surprising one another with good deeds and positive messages.

For examples and more great ideas ~ read the whole SHMILY story here: http://www.shmilycoins.com/SHMILY-story.html

With Valentine's Day (Feb. 14) and the National Marriage Week (Feb. 10-16) all in the same month I thought this was the perfect time to post my review (and giveaway) of SHMILY coins.

SHMILY Coins are a perfect product to review for families to develop new traditions of surprising each other with the "See How Much I Love You" message in fun places.

I started by putting the SHMILY coins on top of my children's pillows  - they loved racing up to bed to see who had a SHMILY coin each night.  When one was found, I gathered them all together and told them something that I love about each one of them, and one "extra" thing about the child who had the coin on his or her pillow.  Following this little talk with hugs and kisses, my kids each told me that they feel special being singled out to receive the SHMILY coin.

I hid one in my husband's truck (taped in an envelope to his steering wheel) so he could find it when he went to work in the morning - he said it was a nice surprise and he thought about me all day long when he saw the coin sitting on his desk at work.

I love being able to share my love for my husband and kids using these fun SHMILY coins - I plan to also give one away to each of my siblings (and sibling-in-laws) for them to use in their families too.  It is a small, simple item, but carries such a wonderful message to whoever receives one.

Now for the fun - I am giving away 3 of these wonderful SHMILY coins (with the story) to 3 different readers here on Mom Loves 2 Read -

  1. I think this is such a sweet idea! It's nice to get little reminders how much we are loved!

  2. Dead running and Dying to Run sound great! I don't read as much as I used to. 3 kids, a husband and our pets ( or should I say zoo) keep me busy. These books grabbed my attention! Shmily daniellekhrino@live.com

  3. I love the idea of these and what a neat way to spread some smiles!! I would love to put them in my kids and dh's lunches for a surprise and a smile!

  4. this is such a simple yet wonderful idea. you can never remind someone too often how much you love them.

  5. I just absolutely love this idea. ever since i saw this review i have been noticing all the little hiding places i could stash one of these for my husband
