"First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage”. We all know certain occasions where it is more or less custom to give or receive a (diamond) present. With a proposal comes a diamond ring. With marriage comes the exchange of rings. But what about step three? Is there something you give when the two of you become parents? Yes there is: the push present.
What is a Push Present
Let's be honest. The combination of a 9-month pregnancy and childbirth are no picknick. Women do practically all the work and men have it relatively easy. Over the last 30 years, men became more and more aware of the difficulties their partner had to go through. They see their girlfriend or wife suffer through morning sickness, pregnancy ailments, stress, general soreness… And of course, their (permanently) changed body.
Does she expect a present?
Research from 2019 shows that 83% of the new mothers expects some sort of gift from their significant other. However, it also showed that around 70% of them actually got a push present after the baby was born. Obviously, you don’t want her to be in the remaining 13% that stays behind disappointed. So even if she does not expect a push present, it is a nice touch to show her you care.
What kind of present does she want?
When we look at various parent forums, the classic choice for a push present is a piece of jewelry. The most popular gifts are:
- Gold necklaces (with or without the initials of the baby)
- Luxurious watch
- Ring – especially when you didn't give her one yet.

Should I get her a push present?
Well, it is your own choice of course, but if your partner is pregnant, I would highly recommend it. The most important thing to remember is that it has to be a gift for her, not for the baby.
