Its little things that help you out at home and in the hospital that is the most important thing. Which them little things make you feel more loved then a ring. As any sort of gift is not going to help you at 2am of a morning.
    Why cant he do both? I didnt expect a gift, i had no idea. It was just another lovely surprise and very thoughtful

    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!

    Sometimes it's family heirlooms. For dd1 I got a little cameo (to wear/hold in trust till she is 18) and dd2 a ring that belonged to MILs grandmother.

    Yeah that's nice - and meaningful.

    We don't have any family heirlooms... Hmm, maybe we should buy something to start it off! Maybe next time...

    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.

    Default A Push Present

    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

    Default A Push Present

    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!
