Push presents are all the rage. Push presents are gifts that the non-pregnant partner gives to the Mommy after birth. A gift for literally pushing the baby out. A phenomenon started by celebrities (blame Dean McDermott and the amazing push presents he gives Tori Spelling). As if men where not stressed enough about having a baby now they have to find the perfect gift for their hormonal post partum partner.
Some common push presents are.....
- jewelry with the baby's birthstone
- personalized necklace with the baby's name or initials
- designer label diaper bags
- tickets for a family vacation
- spa gift certificate
The idea of a push present is still a controversial topic. Some feel that push presents take emotion out of the miracle of life and turn it into a another shallow and materialistic event. Personally I feel that the bouquet of flowers that my husband gave me meant so much. BUT a Tiffany and Company diamond necklace would have been a nice way to commemorate an important day. I guess we have a child that does that.
