A few years ago, “push presents” were all the rage among famous pregnant women and celebrities who had just become new moms. What is a push present? Essentially it's a gift a new mom receives from the new dad for going through pregnancy, labor and the physical process of having a baby.
While I'm all about getting gifts, I didn't even know about push presents until after I had Piper, my youngest baby. Had I even known at that time, I certainly wouldn't have expected anything! Since my husband doesn't keep up with current celebrity trends, I doubt he knows about push presents even now! My husband is so sweet, though; if he had known about this type of gift I'm positive he would have come up with a thoughtful sentimental little someting to give to me after the birth of his children.
My take on celebrity push presents is that they're much more than small token gifts. I've heard of some celebrity moms simply getting loose diamonds to custom-craft their own jewelry, while others, like Jennifer Lopez, received an eight-carat diamond ring to celebrate the birth of twins Max and Emme.
So readers, tell me: did you receive a push present? If you're pregnant, do you want a push present?
