This is a British magazine, it's called Take A Break.
I hate the term 'push present'. There's nothing wrong with a father giving the mother of his child a gift if that's what he wants to do.
Demanding any gift is crass, and I don't know anyone who would think otherwise. But honestly, anyone who begrudges a new mother a token of affection freely given by her partner should take a good long look at their motives. Nobody has a right to tell a couple they are wrong for giving presents on occasions that mean something to the couple (anniversary of first date, wedding anniversary, etc.). Why does having a baby suddenly make it different?
Amen to that! I'm glad we don't have showers here, I don't like the sound of throwing a party just to receive gifts at all.
Still, to each their own. If baby showers are the norm in other areas, great! It's ultimately a caring act, so, even if I don't understand it, I would never sneer at anyone that had one. I just don't think they're a necessity, as a pp seemed to be implying.
I also heard of this as well I knew a woman who wanted a push present. I can see it if it's your 1st child to have something but let the hubby or boyfriend surprise you. Men do know we want sometimes. i find it saddening
Baby showers i think are ok think of back in the day when people couldn't afford things, it was a helping hand. But people want the most expensive glamorous items just be thankful you have loving friends and family. Thoughts on Gender reveal parties? if you haven't heard of them thats when you get the baker or fill candy in a pinata or balloons in a box of what color sex of the baby is pink for girl and blue for boy.
