push gift
 n.— «Add one more thing to the list of pre and post natal-do’s: purchasing your push gift. Today’s “push gift” is a thank-you to women for enduring pregnancy and “pushing” though labor. In England, men traditionally buy women an elegant ring to mark the occasion. In India, the blessed event calls for a gift of gold jewelry.» —“‘Push Gift’ Etiquette for Her First Mother’s Day” in Minneapolis, Minnesota Business Wire May 4, 2006.
