Why She Rejected $8K Gift From Nick Viall

Some skeptical Bachelor Nation fans think the former model is not engaged to Nick Viall for the right reasons. The term “golddigger” has even been used. Is that why she rejected an $8k gift from her fiance?

Nick Viall has been known for his grand romantic gestures. Natalie dished on the latest incident during a recent episode of The Viall Files podcast. The former Bachelor star gave Natalie a $8,000 Louis Vuitton bag as a push present before their daughter’s birth.

According to Us Weekly, she returned the pricey bag for a less expensive gift. Nick said that his baby mama is a “frugal queen,” and that’s why she returned the bag.

However, it wasn’t as easy as they expected. He said that store associates were “pi**ed” by the return and tried to get the couple to exchange it for something equally expensive in the baby section. Nick and Natalie say they ended up leaving the store with an “expensive” cosmetics kit.

Natalie Joy admitted to podcast guest Heidi Montag that she wouldn’t have returned the gift if it had been expensive jewelry instead.

What do you think about push presents? Is it an outdated concept in 2024? Would you reject an $8k Louis Vuitton bag?
