It might be nice to get something to commemorate your baby’s birth.  Dirty Delete was born right before Father’s day (I think two weeks?) so Darling Husband got a present right after she was born.  I got him a digital photo frame and uploaded all of DD’s newborn pictures.  🙂

Take this with a grain of salt, since I’m not even pregnant yet, but, isnt the baby gift enough? It seems like you will have lots of expenses with that so an extra random gift wouldn’t really be necessary. Although something like the fram mentioned above would be nice, since he’ll probably have to go back to work pretty quickly and I’m sure he would like to have lots of pictures of LO to look at while he is there and show coworkers.

I’ve never really understood the point if push presents, but I like the idea of you getting him something, if he’s doing it for you… As for ideas? I don’t know what.

I also like the idea of leather “brag book” that has pictures of the baby in it so he can show it off at work.

My husband and I were talking about this last night. He really wants a “Nest” thermostat. He joked about it being his “Watching the Push” present. I’m on the fence about the thermostat in general, but using it as “Watching the Push” present could get him what he wants and then he’ll give me a push present.

@roxy821:  The Nest thermomstat is a thermostat designed by the guy that invented the iPod. It’s got an amazing design and programs itself around people in the house. It learns what temps you want, etc. Very cool.

I’m weird I guess. I just assumed I will get him one if/when we have a child. I got him a promise ring, I’m getting him a wedding ring and engagement necklace,….

It’s not all about me, he did help too, same with the wedding. It’s US getting married, it’s US having a baby….

@roxy821:  Installing it is the fun part for my husband. He’s quite handy around the house, so he’d enjoy it. He’s had a lot of fun assembling stuff for the baby.

@roxy821:  Sure, get him something. Isn’t it traditional for a new dad to have a cigar?

I really wouldn’t refer to it as a ‘push present’ though. It’s only called that because it’s designed to make up for having to push the baby out.. not just a gift for being a new mom. I want a yellow diamond for my push present lol. Some people would say the baby is a gift enough. Screw that – I want bling 🙂
