I don't get how people can afford sparkly jewels at a time when lots of people go down to one income? We definitely couldn't. And babies are expensive!
Each to their own really. Whether someone gets given a gift or not doesn't affect me at all. Its not really my thing, but I have requested sushi, blue vein, ham and a gooey egg after the birth.
After ds 1 was born he was about 12 weeks actually my dh surprised me with a ten diamond eternity ring that he designed by himself with a jeweller. It was a gorgeous surprise gift one that I Did not expect at all. For ds 2 I didn't get anything, but as I said I didn't expect anything to begin with
I hate the name, really very much. It's so crass!
I think it's nice if the father gives a meaningful present, but it should not be expected.
DF gave me a Thomas Sabo charm, a teddy bear with a diamond (meaningful for us, relevant to what we called DS inutero). He actually gave it to me on Mother's Day, which was a few days after DS was born.
I wanted to get him a similarly meaningful present, but in the lead up to the birth, I couldn't think of anything appropriate. Eventually I bought him a keyring with DS's handprint on them. DS & I got them in time to give him for Father's Day in September.
Not "Push Presents" exactly, but meaningful presents to each other to mark our precious baby's arrival. I had a C-Section though anyway!
