Basically, the jewelry industry is trying to create a new market by pushing the expectation that new mom’s should get an expensive gift for delivering a baby.
Guess what? The baby is an expensive gift! Instead of blowing a grand on blood diamonds, why not use the money to open a college fund or the new baby?
Besides, I fathered two children – and as I remember it, I was involved in a lot of pushing as well – where’s my gift?
We don’t need another freaking Hallmark Holiday. We need young parents that aren’t in debt, and kids that can afford ever-growing college tuition.
Personally, I think the child is a pretty damn cool gift (and likely the most expensive one any parent will ever receive!)
Men who thought their lavish-jewelry duties were over after they purchased the engagement ring might get a shock when their babies are born. That’s when it’s time to shop for the "push present (search)." But a bouquet of flowers won’t usually cut it. Nowadays, many husbands are expected to buy expensive presents to thank their wives for dealing with pregnancy and "pushing" through labor.
