We were just talking about this because he was asking me if he should get me something. We’ve had friends get diamond rings as push presents. I’m sure I could get something if I really wanted to, but my husband doesn’t really tell me what I can and can’t buy, and he’s also not that great with gifts, so I’d basically be picking myself out something for going through labor and I don’t necessarily feel the need to do that.  If he were really going to get me a push present I’d want it to be something he did all on his own. Does that make sense? I told him not to worry about it but that flowers and a kiss would be nice πŸ™‚

Not pregnant, but I’ve thought about it and I think I want a pink moissy ring if its a girl, and a blue moissy ring if its a boy!  =D

I have nothing against people who do get them but I don’t think it’s necessary. I would feel silly receiving a gift for having a baby. Having a baby is a big enough gift and costs enough money and why the hell do I deserve a diamond ring for pushing out OUR child? Just my opinion though πŸ™‚

@theredhead:  I think it’s more of a token of appreciation. The man kinda just sits back and reaps all of the benefits while the women does virtually everything. While I agree that push gifts aren’t necessary, I do think they’re nice. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant.

I am getting one and I embrace it. I am also due on mother’s day so it hopefully is for that as well. I am getting a den which I assumed was my gift and am super happy about but Darling Husband also said he wants to get me a sapphire ring to represent our little boy. (He would have purchased whatever piece of jewelery I told him I wanted.) He is a good man!

@AvantLaLettre:  I totally agree. When our time comes I’ll probably make him aware of the fact that “push gifts” exist (he’ll have no clue), but I won’t tell him what to get me. That’s something that should come from the heart.

I really want birthstone stacking rings of mine, my husband, and baby. I think that birthstone stacking rings are so cute.

i remember my sister getting a diamond band for the birth of her first son and my SIL getting a diamond necklace when she had her 1st

i think a summer dress or running shoes is a bit silly when you consider the symbolism on why you are getting the gift

@UpstateCait: I agree, I think something small would be sweet! One of the PP’s referenced getting a diamond ring and I watched a show one day on TLC or something where one woman got a new car from her husband. I think it’s those types of push presents that make me really confused and a bit angry! I have always felt awkward receiving gifts for any occasion so maybe thats why I am just so uncomfortable with the whole idea of a push present.

@pinkshoes:  That is so cute!

I have actually been thinking about this alot lately when I realized I love three stone rings! At first I thought an OEC moissy ring. But now for a push present I would want a three stone diamond ring with probably round stones – To stand for Mommy, Daddy & Baby! I might get them in color, like champagne diamonds!

I am not TTC or pregnant. LOL

But the rings I looked at only run at 250-300 dollars. So it wouldn’t be a HUGE purchase for someone who just had a baby.

@miss-spunkin:  My hubby was planning on buying me a second band for my e-ring and wedding set, but the other day I found I piece of furniture I just could not forget about, so I am getting that instead. I know a piece of furniture is kind of a weird thing to get, but we couldn’t afford it AND the diamond ring.

I don’t like the idea of them to be honest. When I do get pregnant the best gift my FH can give me is to be a great father to our children.
