Listen up, dads-to-be! This may seem like the new unheard-of thing, but we promise, it’s real. We’ve traced this trend back at least fifteen years, so this tradition is here to stay! For those of you who don’t know, a push present is a gift that you give to the mother of your child on the day she gives birth. It can be given before, during, or after she delivers.
The mother of your child has spent the past nine months sick and tired, and the finish line is in sight. Not convinced about the push present thing? These 5 reasons may help you understand why a push present is such a meaningful and important gift!
REASON #1: SHE NEEDS TO FEEL APPRECIATED
Pregnancy is no easy task, but she may feel that it’s hard for you to understand since men have never been through it themselves. She’s hormonal, she’s tired, and she’s been through a lot. Let her know that you think she deserves the world, or at the very least a piece of jewelry.
REASON #2: GIVE HER A SYMBOL OF THIS SPECIAL DAY
This is a piece she can wear for a year, a decade, and probably the rest of her life. When people compliment her ring, necklace, or earrings, she will beam with pride as she tells them the story of why she got it. Her love for you and her love for her child will radiate every time she tells the story.
REASON #3: SHARE A BEAUTIFUL MEMORY
Amidst all of the chaos, have this one moment just for the two of you when you give her the gift. A quiet, intimate moment of connection with words unspoken. Let the jewelry do the talking. Your lives are about to change, it’s ok to take a minute.
REASON #4: IT’S WEIRD NOT TO
By now, it’s pretty much expected.
It’s tradition. Everyone loves tradition.
REASON #5: JEWELRY IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA
Seriously. Every occasion, every celebration. You can’t go wrong with jewelry. It’s something she can look at every single day, show her friends, and pass down to her children. It lasts longer than flowers, it’s more meaningful than a card. Electronics become outdated, clothing becomes tattered and worn. What better gift is there than jewelry?
Congratulations, expecting mothers and fathers! This is an incredible thing, and we wish you the best on your parenting adventures. Life moves pretty fast, don’t forget to stop and smell the rose gold.
