The birth of a child is one of the most pivotal moments in a man’s life. Watching your significant other carry a child and then deliver it changes a man forever, and changes the way he sees his significant other as well. Knowing that she is not only the love of his life but also the mother of his children means that those two people will always share a connection no matter what life brings them later on. You have likely already bought her an engagement ring and a wedding band at some point in your time together, but the birth of a child is something else altogether. Do not forget that she has done a lot of hard work and deserves a little bit of recognition. She will not want or ask for recognition, and will not be thinking of anything else besides the baby. But giving her a small token of your affection will help remind her that she too is loved and appreciated. Here are a few suggestions of thoughtful gifts that will help you show her how much you love her.
- Jewelry – This might seem like a standard “go-to” but it is for a reason. Different types of jewelry for different occasions make perfect sense, and jewelry has a sense of permanence that not all other gifts have. There are a lot of ways to go with this, from earrings to bracelets to engraving the inside of a ring. A diamond ring might not seem quite right for a baby’s birth, but a band with the baby’s birthstone around it might be the perfect thing for her. It is something she will wear all the time, and it will remind her both of the baby and of how much you love her. Jewelry stores such as Davidson & Co. Jewels can help you customize the exact right thing for the occasion, and they love to work on projects like these.
- Champagne and flutes – A bottle of champagne now that she is able to drink a little will help you literally pop the cork on this new celebration, and nice champagne flutes as a gift will remind her of the birth of the baby every time she uses them. Buying nice flutes such as crystal can cost a lot but there are other versions that are just as elegant and are not as expensive.
- Spa treatment – She will not want to leave the baby for a while, but when she is finally ready to do so, a relaxing day at the spa is probably just what she needs. Pampering herself with a massage, a facial, and a manicure and pedicure, among other possibilities, will allow her to refresh herself and relax. A little alone time does everyone some good, and no one needs a breather more than a new mother. Do your partner a favor and treat her to something that she can use to relax. It does not have the permanence of jewelry but she will come home completely thrilled.
