Push presents? Anyone gave their wives a nice present for their sacrifice in carrying a baby for 9 months?

The present is the baby 🤷‍♂️


No - push presents are stupid


No that’s weird


Another baby


My husband gave me a necklace with my daughters birthstone in it (sapphire, with diamonds surrounding it). He and I both think push presents are stupid but he wanted me to have something that I could wear when I go back to traveling. I haven’t taken it off since the night she was born.


Also sorry- I didn’t see this was in consulting dads!


Something related to the baby.. jewelry with birthstones is nice. I got her a necklace and pendant with my son's initials. Added another pendant for the second kid. Push presents are dumb, but that's why they are important to do. They show you're willing to do dumb things to make her happy.


Gave my wife a pair of tanzanite earrings. We don’t really do gifts outside of major anniversaries and push presents.


Sapphire earrings for the first one. I kind of fell off after that!

Photo printer for the first and Apple Watch for the second. Nothing extravagant, but things she specifically asked for and could play with to pass the long hours nursing and rocking baby to sleep. Postpartum is hard. Anything you can do to make it easier for wifey is money well spent - if she had wanted jewelry or a car or a trip or something I would have been down with that too.

Pearl earrings

The baby

First child was born on DC and I guess we were oblivious. 2nd child was born on Long Island and it’s all about status there. My coworkers were NOT happy that my wife and I thought push presents were strange. I’m back in DC now and no one will ever know or care that we were push present free. 🙌

Nice mechanical Swiss watch

Stackable birthstone rings for each kid’s birth month.

Got my wife an indoor swing seat. Initially thought about a rocking chair, but I knew she'd love a swinging seat more. Gave it to her a few weeks before she delivered so she could enjoy it when she was pregnant and then she could use it with the baby after delivery. She loves it. We now have a one month old and she loves the swing seat. We have fairy lights on it and she's mesmerized by it. It's about the thought and what your wife/partner will like.

A cure to that "baby fever."

Need some advice/ thoughts: a year ago the the person I thought it was the love of my life dumped me. She went radio silent and hasn’t spoken to me since.

About three weeks ago people stated posting summer get together pics and she didn’t comment on any of them. And then another classmate posted a Muslim holiday post…no comment.

I started dating this guy some months before covid struck.. he was literally crazy about me.

Sleeps or Vists his relatives or works on Sundays. Sometimes I feel he no longer loves me.

Please share what you considered as you were making the decision - I hate throwing away rent but also don’t want to trap ourselves in significant financial obligations. Thanks!

Hi everyone, what are your thoughts on essential skills, knowledge or even certifications needed to build a strong case around transferring to the cyber practice? IAM specifically sounds like a good balance of technical work and non technical work so potentially targeting that team. Im recognized as a top performer as an analyst in automation, have experience around multiple programming languages and have been exposed to tools such as wire shark and Splunk.
