What Is A Push Gift
While going through my Instagram feed this morning; I stumbled upon the hashtag #pushgift. I became curious, what is a push gift? Some of you probably got stuck on hashtag so I'll divert for a bit to explain.
A hashtag is a word that with # sign in front of it. A hashtag is used on social media sites such as Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook. A hashtag can also be a group of words joined together to make a phrase. When the # is placed before the word or words they become a clickable link. It is the way to search a topic or item. Every post that contain the same hashtag becomes searchable on one page. That's the use of the hashtag.
Where were we...ah yes...what is a push gift? My research tells me that a push gift is a gift that a husband gives to his wife after delivering their bundle of joy -- the baby. Yes, that's right a push gift. Interestingly enough the most popular gift was...did you guess jewelry? Yes, jewelry was the most popular such as a ring or necklace with the baby's birth stone. I also noticed accessories for the nursery such as an ottoman set.
I have never heard of it before today, that's OK. What I wanted most from my husband was for him to be at home with us (and not at work) during my recovery time. I didn't change a diaper for weeks with our first. He also took care of the meals and I got to eat in bed. It was great.
