WHAT ARE PUSH PRESENTS AND WHY ARE THEY SO SPECIAL?
When a baby is born, it is customary to fill him or her with gifts; however, many times the mother, who makes an enormous physical and mental effort before and during the pregnancy, does not receive the attention she deserves. Hence the tradition of the 'push present' was born, a gift that captures the magic of that moment forever. As a fine handmade jewellery brand, we share with you some of its ideal pieces to give to mothers.
A push present is a gift given to a woman shortly after giving birth, usually by her spouse or partner; although many times it is also customary to receive them from the close family (siblings, parents, in-laws). Its name refers to the effort of labor and it is customary to give it on the day of birth, or a few days later, during recovery at home or in the hospital. Some people prefer to give it before the madness of having the new baby at home, this way it marks the beginning of the special moment they are about to experience as a family.
Although it is not necessary to give a gift, since the joy of receiving a baby at home is enough, more and more couples and families are bringing this type of gift as a detail to remember those nine months of pregnancy or all that it means to bring a new person into the world. It is also customary for the mother herself to give herself a jewel or some other luxury item to commemorate the occasion, since it does not necessarily have to be a gift from someone else. The idea of the push present is that it is unique piece of jewellery with which this change is marked forever in life. These types of gifts are common in Mexico and in other countries, such as England and Spain.
Many families have the tradition of completing the wedding trousseau with an extra churumbela, a necklace or representative earrings, although there are also rings with the birthstones of the children and which are modified with the birth of each of the new members of the family. family.
Some of the push presents of royalty are: the 18-carat gold diamond infinity ring to Kate Middleton, and the 18-carat gold Marguerite earrings with diamonds to Meghan Markle. While celebrities like Kylie Jenner were given a diamond ring; Kim Kardashian a diamond choker, and Beyoncé a ring with a blue gem, Jay Z's favorite color. Another type of 'push present' is the Rolls Royce for the model Blac Chyna, and the motorcycle that the singer Pink received.
