For some women, a beautiful new baby in their arms is only the tip of the (often glittering) iceberg when it comes to celebrating their new arrival. Push presents [1] have been around for years, but celebs do them bigger and shinier than most of us. The latest luxurious gift to be bestowed upon a new Tinseltown mom is a $10,000 Hermès Birkin bag that Jay Cutler gave to Kristin Cavallari [2] upon the birth of baby Camden. Let's just hope she doesn't use it to store dirty diapers and soiled bibs! Kristin's not the only new mom to receive a posh gift for popping a baby out. Keep reading to see how stars like Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner [3] celebrated their lil ones' arrivals.

Six weeks ago Kristin Cavallari [4] gave birth to baby Camden and was surprised with another nice lil gift that she can carry on her arm — an Hermès Birkin bag. She said [5], "I got a gray Birkin bag. I was really excited about it. [Jay] did a good job."

Shortly after giving birth to Blue Ivy earlier this year, Beyoncé was spotted with an extra-large blue Tanzanite ring on her finger. The ring is believed to be a push present [6] — linked to the baby's colorful name — from proud dad Jay-Z.

Eric Johnson ensured that new mama Jessica Simpson [7] was showered with gifts upon baby Maxwell's arrival. The dad-to-be reportedly bought "a collection of platinum bracelets, a matching necklace with a 'huge amethyst,' and a band that will be engraved with their baby's birth date" [8] from their favorite jeweler in Capri.

Following the birth of her first child with husband Keith Urban [9], Faith, Nicole Kidman received a diamond-encrusted Cartier trinity ring [10]. After their second child, Sunday, was born, it is rumored that Nicole received a diamond-and-emerald cross.

Mariah Carey [11] is known for her large jewelry collection, as well as her songbird voice, so her husband, Nick Cannon, had to work hard to find a unique gift for his wife after the birth of their twins, Monroe and Moroccan. He found it in a diamond-encrusted nameplate necklace featuring the kids' names. He said [12], "It says 'Moroccan and Monroe' in pink-and-white diamonds. My wife has so much jewelry, so I've got be really creative when I give gifts."

Adele has yet to give birth to her first child, but rumors are already swirling that her boyfriend, Simon Konecki, has picked out a gold Buddha necklace designed by Lady Marina Cowdray [13] for the songstress.

Viewers of The Rachel Zoe [14] Project watched the celeb stylist and fashion designer's husband visit famed jeweler Neil Lane to pick out the perfect gift for his about-to-deliver wife. On the show, Rodger Berman picked a 10-carat cushion-cut diamond ring. Neil Lane said [15], "Rodger wanted to surprise Rachel with something romantic — and huge. I knew she's wanted a cushion cut forever. It was their first baby, and she's been working so hard that Rodger wanted to do something very special. Rachel was thrilled and hasn't taken it off since!"

Following the birth of their first child, Violet, Ben Affleck [16] gave Jennifer Garner [17] a diamond ring. Unfortunately, the new mom lost it almost as quickly as she got it. She revealed [18], "He gave me this beautiful diamond ring and I was playing with it and . . . it fell off. And it fell under this ice-maker in the house — he (Affleck) hasn't even heard of this yet — and . . . it fell into the drain under this ice maker. And the plumber had to come and dismantle the thing from under the house. And he found it!"

When Suri was born, Tom Cruise [19] went the sentimental route, choosing Cartier's 18-karat gold Love bracelet for new mom Katie Holmes [20].

All push presents aren't sparkly jewels. After giving birth to Liam in 2007, Tori Spelling [21] received a Balenciaga bag from husband Dean McDermott.

Never one for subtlety, Marc Anthony [22] went for sparkle and shine to thank Jennifer Lopez [23] for giving birth to the former couple's twins. To show his appreciation, he reportedly gifted her with a canary-yellow diamond ring and custom diamond earrings engraved with the lil ones' initials [24]. Total tally? $2.8 million!
