My baby will be my present πŸ™‚ I know my husband would get me something if I asked, but since we’re trying to buy a house and will have a new baby, I’d rather save the money.

Considering my due date is right after my birthday, probably not.

Of course once we found out I was pregnant my husband got me a new car and the nice leather rocker I wanted so that’s probably better than a push-present.

I don’t think so.  I’d have to tell my husband to do it and I don’t feel like doing that.  He might get me flowers or something but my guess is it will be so hectic that wouldn’t happen until we got home.

He’s hinted that he’d like to get me the other band for my wedding ring.  We’ll see.  I’d love a right hand ring.  Kinda depends on finances though.

Nope. We were in a tight financial situation then anyway, so a present was the last thing on my mind.

I would someday like a nice mother’s ring.

Nope, my husband and I talked about this and it’s just not for us.  Just like @artbee, our feeling is that our little boy will be the best present of all.

I have never heard of push presents before, I think I agree with @artbee on this one

I heard of push presents (only in chick lit) and I brought it up to my husband who thought it seemed kind of dumb. I did tell him as soon as that kid’s born, he’s running out to buy my Jimmy Johns. Other than that I am not expecting any kind of present for giving birth.

I like the idea of having a nice piece of jewelry or something to commemorate the birth of your child.  My friend got a ring with her child’s birthstone. Its a very pretty piece of jewelry and she wears it often.  It will be something that can be passed down. 

I don’t like the idea of a push present just being the latest gadget/toy/purse etc that you want.  In 5 years, you will probably be “over that” and what was the point then?

I guess I”m just sentimental.

Kind of. We are buying a treadmill which I’ve wanted for awhile and am VERY excited about. It isn’t really a push present since we’ve been shopping for one for awhile and our friend is helping us get a refurbished one but I’m considering to be my push present πŸ˜‰

not pregnant here but when I saw Bethanny Frankel’s bangle bracelets from her hubby I loved  them! There was a gold bangle, a silver bangle and a pink bangle for each member of the family. That being said, for us I don’t think it will be a priority unless we suddenly win the lottery and dont have to worry about the cost of babies/kids.

Nope, our future baby would be our present.

I think this just sounds crazy. lol. Maybe it’s just me? I dunno. Yes, you went through 9 months of craziness and then the pain of childbirth, but then you come out the other side of it with a baby. I just don’t understand the point of a “push present” and I kind of think it is unnecessary. That’s just me…

I don’t know whether I would call it a push present or not, but I told Darling Husband that I would really like a ring or necklace that has all our birthstones in it.

When we were shopping for our wedding bands there was a gentleman in there whose wife just had twins. He was getting her two sapphire bands, one in pink and one in blue. I thought that was a really nice idea.
