Moms to be experience a long, sometimes tiresome, 9 months of pregnancy. Maybe she has to give up her favorite coffee in the morning or skip the monthly sushi dinner. While a beautiful, healthy baby is worth all the sacrifice, a new mom does deserve a little something special.
The incarnation of the "push present" is a special way to celebrate a child's birth. Push presents are any type of gift a partner gives to a woman who has recently given birth to a child. The tradition of gift-giving to commemorate a birth has long roots stemming from England and India, but didn’t become known in the U.S. until about 1992. Although the term push present has been around for over 20 years, the idea has grown in popularity since about 2011, especially with the popularity amongst celebrities. Although there are no real guidelines to a push present, jewelry seems to be the most popular gift to honor and celebrate this huge life changing moment and rite of passage for a woman.
Many celebrities have brought the big bling for their push presents. Big name celebrities like Jay-Z, who gifted Beyoncé with a flashy 8+ kt. cushion brilliant blue tanzanite ring, and Nick Cannon, who presented Mariah Carey with a 4-carat diamond and sapphire necklace emblazoned with her twins’ names, both opted for unique jewelry pieces for their favorite new moms. Kanye West chose to give Kim Kardashian a rare black and tiger-stripe diamond ring that he had designed for her months before the baby arrived.
Celebrity Stylist, Rachel Zoe, proved diamonds are a girl’s best friend when she received a Neil Lane 10 kt. cushion-cut diamond ring for the birth of her son, Skyler. Kristin Cavallari revealed that she received a grey Hermès Birkin bag from husband Jay Cutler after she gave birth to their first child.
Push presents aren’t only for the Hollywood elite, a royal push present was given to Kate from Prince William for the birth of George. Prince William was reported to have helped design a diamond brooch for the event.
