Before I was pregnant I had heard that it was customary for new moms to receive pearls from their husbands, but it was more of an East coast or Southern tradition. Then early in my pregnancy a friend asked me what I wanted my husband to get me as a 'push present' after our daughter was born. Silly me, I hadn't even thought of it for myself. So I brought the subject of a push present up to my husband and he was all for it. After some careful thought, I decided that I wanted a charm bracelet that I could one day pass down to my daughter. And so began the search for a timeless charm bracelet that would be appropriate for me to wear now and be appropriate to give to my daughter in about 20 years. Tiffany had the perfect solution:
There's something good in there!
Tiffany has classic charms and their chains are built so that every link opens meaning that you can make the chains to any length that you desire. So what I have now is a chain that can be worn as a necklace or bracelet now and when Maddie is old enough I'll give her half of the chair and the charms that were given to me on the day that she was born. :) When the hubs gave me my push present he also gave me 3 charms: a little baby cup charm with ABC blocks engraved on it, a small circular charm with an M for Madeleine on it, and a heart charm with pink sapphires (Madeleine's birth stone) embedded into it. I absolutely love this piece of jewelry. I think charm bracelets are classic and meaningful but still fun. The fact that I'll be able to share this with my daughter someday just makes me so incredibly happy.
Did you receive a push present after the birth of your child? Do you have something meaningful that you're planning to pass down to your child in the future?
