How to buy a pre push present
This is an advice post for all the dads to be out there! When your partner is heavily pregnant she definitely needs lots of love, reassurance and pampering. I've been very lucky in that my partner Nev has been really attentive to me throughout my pregnancy and has made me feel completely loved and cared for.
I was so thrilled with this pre push gift he surprised me with at the weekend. He'd ordered a basket to be delivered to his work then filled it with all my favourite things. It included Gin and Tonic, sausages, bath bubbles and body oil from Neal's Yard, fancy chocolates, a Jo Malone grapefruit candle and a pineapple! Naturally I won't be quaffing the G&T for a while but it was so lovely to receive naughty gifts as well as nice ones.
So gentlemen, if you're struggling for gift inspiration why not treat the mum to be to a few of her favourite things? It was certainly one of the most thoughtful presents I've ever had.
