    If you were/are thinking of getting hubby/partner a gift, what would be your ideas? I love this thought, but haven't a clue what would be appropriate or nice?

    The baby was my gift. I have no problems with others getting pressies but for me the baby was enough as we were told we had a 10% chance of conceiving. My gf got the biggest diamond ring ever and she loved it. As long as your happy

    Not very original but I have just got DH a signet ring made up from baby and I. I designed it so that it has meaning that only he knows what it means when he looks at it. It also has our names on the inside.

    I just said to DH "when I have baby will you buy me a push present?"

    He looked at me. Shook his head and said, "I'll get you subway and maybe draw a love heart on the wrapper."

    He's all romance that one.

    Change the name, what if you don't push your baby out?

    A baby is more than enough present for me, gifts for either myself or bub welcome but not expected

    My husband gave me beautiful jewellery after each of our four children were born. Not because I demanded a "push present" but because he wanted to.

    Each of our kids knows which piece Daddy bought for Mummy because he loves Mummy so much and they love it when I wear "their" ring, or whichever.

    When I die, each child will inherit "their" piece and will remember the significance of it, and the love behind it ......it's a bit of a special thing for us.

    Let me clarify - I think it is self indulgent if a woman expects/demands a push present. I've had friends ask me what I am getting as my push present and have told me I should ask DF for this or that... The idea is abhorrent (to me) to demand a present.

    If a partner is so inclined to buy a new mother something because that is how he chooses to show his appreciation to the mother of his child, then that is great.

    *shrug* I have already asked DP whether he can buy me some flowers when I have his baby and I'm not even pregnant yet.

    Yep, selfish, indulgent, don't care about my baby etc... that's me!

    DP was actually disgusted that XDP never acknowledged everything I went through to give birth to DS. I'm sure he won't mind my extreme demands.
