A little Salt N Pepa to start your Wednesday
Today’s topics is about “push presents.” Have you heard of this? If you’re a fan of the Bravo show Pregnant in Heels, then you’re probably in the know. Oh and the show is hilarious and informative — check it out!
Wikipedia says the following about push presents:
A push present (also known as a “push gift” or “baby bauble”) is a present a new father gives a new mother when she gives birth to their child. In practice the present may be given before or after the birth, or even in the delivery room. The giving of push presents has supposedly grown in the United States in recent years.
A 2007 survey of over 30,000 respondents by BabyCenter.com found that 38% of new mothers received a push present, and 55% of pregnant mothers wanted one, though fewer thought it was actually expected.
Well let me tell you, some day when I give birth, I’m going to be in the category of wanting (but certainly not expecting a push present). And I’ve already found what I want.
This graceful and flowing all round diamond band ring, circa 1930, winks and sparkles with just under a carat of bright white European-cut and single-cut diamonds. A distinctive dazzler.
It fits perfectly on my right hand forefinger or middle finger and I am seriously lusting over it. And it would go well with my 1915′s engagement ring. Sigh….
The price tag, not so much. Platinum vintage rings are not cheap, unfortunately.
Being that I cannot depend on a push present anytime soon, I’ve decided to set up a splurge account on top of my monthly budgeting. So far, I’m nearly half-way there!
