'Push Presents' for Moms: When New Baby's Not Enough of a Gift


It's the Thought That Counts

If an expectant mother, or her anxious husband, can step away from the jewelry on display at places such as Harry Winston to see the big picture, the real goal behind a delivery gift, family experts, and even "push present" receivers, agree, is the thought behind it.

"I believe that each couple, each family is unique and it's about whatever it is that works within your family situation," Viki Steinberg said. "If your husband can give you your favorite meal after you give birth or bring you home and have set up the home for your family, it's about the symbolism."

"Whatever it is that's your epitome of a push present would be perfect for your individual family."

For Brown-Warsham, she thinks a gift for both her and husband would be more appropriate.

"I view it as something that you do together," she said. "There's sacrifice for the man during the pregnancy too."

For Steinberg, now expecting their second child, jewels and baubles continue to be the "epitome" of the push for her family.

"I'd like to continue the stones around my finger to complete the ring and to complete my family," she said, well within earshot of her husband.
