How you can thank her for the baby without words…

Following the most recent addition to the British Royal Family, we are all of course eager to know what William will give Kate as a present to celebrate the birth of their son. In England, and throughout Europe, no long-standing tradition of this sort exists as such. Consequently, making a lovely gesture for your other half can comprise giving almost anything to celebrate a newborn baby, from flowers to a round the world trip. Nevertheless, almost any woman would agree that the most memorable gift will always be jewellery.

In England, and throughout Europe, no long-standing tradition of this sort exists as such. Consequently, making a lovely gesture for your other half can comprise giving almost anything to celebrate a newborn baby, from flowers to a round the world trip. Nevertheless, almost any woman would agree that the most memorable gift will always be jewellery.

This is, incidentally, precisely what every American woman has expected to receive after giving birth for the past decade. This so-called ‘push gift’, was assumed by European culture and became successfully instilled in it about five years ago. Wearing a jewel as a sign of thanks for the new life they’ve been blessed with is what the majority of women want to do. To save men the agony of trying to come up with a surprise, I have compiled a list of some attractive pieces for a similarly attractive price of less than £3,000.
