What gift do I get my wife when she gives birth to our first child?

I've been told to bring my wife a gift in the hospital when she gives birth to our first child. I want to get her the right gift to thank for carrying our child. Does anyone have any input on an appropriate gift? Thanks in advance.

Most new born or child life policies are only going to be for $15 - 20k and cost less than $30/mo in most instances. So not going to cash strap you by any means, or at least I would hope not. But it wouldn't be a bad idea to get life insurance as a supplemental gift. Get her a ring or something nice and then talk about getting the insurance together.

Oh! the baby! I thought we were talking about the father.

Where are you from Thaddeus if you don't mind me asking. I had never heard of the "push present" or the new mother gift until some friends that moved from Kentucky mentioned it. Now everyone in our group is required to get a "push present" or you look like the unappreciative and uncaring male asshole of our group of friends.

If only I could go back

A gift everyone can enjoy.

The gift that keeps on giving

As a man of not much talent with building stuff, i found that i have a little bit of talent!

My best mate and his partner had a child and i whipped this up for them while they were in hospital and gave it to them when they arrived home! the baby came 2 weeks early! i though i had time!! still looked great!

It was a box for Isla, my friends daughter. the bottle is a good drop of vintage port to be drunk when she is old enough (we are big port drinkers) and the paper was from the day she was born. lets just say my friend almost fell of their chair when they saw it! they very much appreciated it.

Wow!
My first gift was a bottle of champagne....Honey, you can drink again!
We still have the cork.

She'll get snake eyes if she's drinking alcohol and nursing.

I do remember her enjoying the taste again, but yes, she couldn't go crazy as we discovered we had a "barracuda" baby.

How Do I Do This?

I want to replace my car battery.The air intake covers the battery. I need to remove it. It has two small screws. No biggie.EXCEPT.The screws are covered by some plastic trip that is kept in place with their weird plasticky . . . caps? Screws? Bolts? Whatever they are, they're those round, button-looking things on the plastic trim at the front of the engine.I was able to force two of them out…See More
