From Wikipedia.org:I think the gift of your child is gift enough, and if you are going to go with the gift idea, I certainly don't think it needs to be an excuse to ask for crazy expensive diamonds or something utterly over the top.
A push present (also known as a push gift, baby mama gift or baby bauble) is a present a father gives to the mother to mark the occasion of her giving birth to their child. In practice the present may be given before or after the birth, or even in the delivery room. The giving of push presents has supposedly grown in the United States in recent years. A push gift is any type of present loved ones give to a woman who has recently given birth to a child. The name push gift although indicative of a vaginal delivery does not exclude those women who have given birth through a C-section.
However, given that Natalie was born, we celebrated Christmas, as well as my 29th birthday all within 40 days of each other, Chris really wanted to get me something that encompassed all three of these major events and milestones...so who was I to argue?! I didn't make any requests on what I wanted, other than the fact that I wanted something with Natalie's November birthstone: topaz.
The man did a great job and I unwrapped this beautiful necklace on Christmas Eve:
I gave it to him the night Natalie was born, and he couldn't wait to get her home on Sunday to put on her new Jersey for the game! (Too bad the Giants sucked this year)
