Ever heard of a push present? It’s exactly what it sounds like. You push a baby out and then you get a present. When I first broached this concept with my husband during my first pregnancy, I was so excited about all the possibilities. How about a new pair of shoes/jacket/watch? When I was listing aloud all the things I wanted my husband to gift me, he stopped me and said “wait… isn’t the baby your gift?” Way to burst a gal’s bubble.
I totally agree that a healthy happy baby is truly the BEST gift you could ever receive. The thing about a push present though, is that it’s more of a symbol to mark an incredible milestone. It’s a little something just for you because we all know that after baby comes, nothing will ever be about you again… ever.
I never got my push present the last go round but knowing how selfless of a job motherhood is, I insisted on getting one this time. I knew that I wanted a piece of jewellery, and for those of you that know me, you know I am capital P-picky when it comes to finding the perfect piece. It has to be subtle, elegant, timeless and unique all at the same time. I wanted to get something that I could wear every single day, that was resistant from the wear and tear of toddlers and babies, and something that would transition from a Mom jean outfit to a night out with my husband.
Paris Jewellers, a Canadian company, has a huge selection of jewellery, all of which check off my very picky boxes. To commemorate baby’s arrival, I chose to go with a pair of gorgeous adjustable silver bracelets. I’m literally obsessed which is why I have to write a post about them! Not only are they subtle and dainty, but they’re for sure going to stand up to two busy babes hanging off my arms 😉
What I love about these bracelets:
Able to transition from day to night (or casual to fancy)
Dainty and subtle for small wrists
Adjustable – I always have problems with bracelets, especially bangles because I have child-sized wrists. The ability to adjust these bracelets mean that they won’t actually don’t fall off!
Stackable with other jewellery and watches
I love that I got these pieces of jewellery just for me to commemorate baby’s arrival. When jewellery has a story behind it, a significance, or a symbolic meaning, it becomes so much more special. Think of your wedding ring for example – it’s likely one of your most prized possessions because of what it symbolizes. Each time I look down at my wrist now, I feel the anticipation bubbling up inside and am that much more excited to meet our new baby in the New Year!
Amplify these special moments in your life – be it a new baby, an anniversary, engagement, wedding or birthday. Maybe share this article with your partner for a little hint, hint nudge nudge 😉
Love, peace, and sparkly push presents
