Push Presents. Push Gifts. Baby Bauble. Have you heard these terms?
If you are an expecting father, you should get acquainted with them.
Push presents have become increasingly popular over the last decade, some would even say mandatory!
What is a push present?
A push present is typically a gift a new father presents to his wife after she gives birth to their child. A push present is a small way to show the father’s appreciation to his wife for going through 9 months of pregnancy.
Unlike a standard diamond ring (for the most part) to signify one’s engagement, push presents could be any type of jewelry and are more based on the individual person receiving it than any other factors. For a push gift, one must pay attention to their wife’s jewelry collection, their favorite colors and their style.
Here are some recommendations for push present ideas:
A good idea for a push gift can be using your wife’s birthstone and the child’s birthstone (if you know the expected month) in a jewelry piece together. Something like this could be pre made or custom designed.
Here is a list of the birthstones:
January: Garnet (Deep Red) February: Amethyst ( Purple) March: Aquamarine (Light Blue) April: Diamond (White / Clear) May: Emerald (Green) June: Pearl (White) July: Ruby (Red) August: Peridot (Light Green) September: Sapphire (Blue) October: Opal (Multi-color) Pink Tourmaline (Pink) November: Citrine Topaz (Orange-Yellow) December: Blue Topaz, Turquoise (Blue)
A combination of birthstones would look beautiful in a ring or a necklace!
Diamond Stud Earrings
A classic jewelry gift. Every woman wants them, not everyone has them. Whether it be their first pair of diamond studs or an upgrade, they always make a great present. Diamond studs can start at $400 and go up to a much higher amount depending on size, color and clarity!
Stackable rings are always a great idea. Thin bands offer versatility, variety and color! You can mix and match with diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds and more. You could also mix in your wife’s and expecting child’s birthstone. Stackable bands are usually thin and offer future gift ideas as you can keep adding to her collection!

Diamond Eternity Bands
A diamond eternity band is a ring made up with diamonds going around all the entire ring. This is a beautiful look and can be used as the signature of the stacking ring look where you can add thinner and different colored and designed bands on the sides of the eternity band. Eternity bands are a stunning look. We usually custom design them allowing the customer to pick out their own parcel of diamonds to meet the size, color and clarity that match their requirements. One downside of an eternity band is that once made, the size is very difficult to alter since there is no space or metal to resize. If you are keeping this a surprise, as a way to avoid having issues with the size, borrow your wife’s engagement ring and have a jeweler measure the size. To avoid having your wife suspect a surprise is coming, tell her you need to get the ring checked to make sure everything is secure and in good shape; this will put her mind at ease.
Diamond Tennis Bracelet
Diamond tennis bracelets are a classic gift. Available in many styles, prong set, bezel set, completely diamonds, alternating diamonds and sapphires, and more. Picture here:
Diamond pendant necklaces are a phenomenal push gift idea. There are two style diamond pendants that I would recommend. One would be a simple diamond pendant set in a basic bezel. Picture here: This is a very classic piece that can be worn everyday. You can either pick out your own loose diamond to set in the bezel or supply a diamond you already have. The other option I recommend is the diamond legacy style halo pendant necklace (pictured on the right) This is a stunning look that can be worn everyday as well as a formal occasion. A larger round center diamond is the foundation of this piece surrounded by smaller micro set diamonds. This piece combines the best of both worlds with style, size and sparkle!
I hope this push present guide was helpful. There is no “right” gift to get as a push present but you can never go wrong with jewelry 😉 !
