What exactly is a “push present”?
A push present (also called a push gift) is a gift given to a new mom who’s just given birth. The push gift is often given by the baby’s father but can be given by friends and family of the mom as well.
The term push present has unknown origins, and this has led many people to believe that it’s a jewelry industry invention (like Valentine’s Day).
But, whether it is or not, getting a new mom a push gift can be a lovely gesture. After all, having a baby is a momentous occasion, and the significance of giving the mom a gift to celebrate it can’t be downplayed.
A push gift is often jewelry, and a great idea is to use the baby’s birthstone. Traditionally, the gift can be given to the mom just before or right after the baby is born. Giving the gift just before the baby is born is probably best since it allows the mom to wear the jewelry in family photos!
An excellent push gift celebrates the new mom and her pregnancy journey. This could be anything from a family photography session with the new baby and mom to a diaper bag to some gorgeous jewelry for the mom.
Our favorite kind of push gift (though we might be a little biased) is jewelry. No doubt the mom (and father) has been nonstop shopping for things for the baby. So instead, it’s the perfect opportunity to get the new mom that piece of jewelry she’s wanted for ages.
Ideas for push present jewelry
There are heaps of great ideas when it comes to push present jewelry. The push gift can be any kind of jewelry—a necklace, diamond earrings, a diamond ring, or something more affordable. Here are a few of our favorites.
Using the baby’s birthstone in the jewelry. This goes for any kind of jewelry, but two ideas are either a birthstone pendant or a charm bracelet. Using the baby’s birthstone gives a personal touch to the push gift that really makes it special. Every time the mom looks down at her gorgeous birthstone jewelry, she will remember her beautiful baby.
A diamond. This one’s obvious. A diamond is a girl’s best friend. That goes for a new mom, too! And there’s nothing like a diamond to celebrate a momentous occasion like giving birth to a baby. This could be diamond earrings, a diamond ring, a diamond necklace—pretty much any diamond jewelry!
An eternity ring. Symbolizing your commitment to the new mom and baby with an eternity ring can be a beautiful gesture.
Having a push gift engraved. Regardless of what kind of jewelry the gift is, having the piece engraved can be symbolic. For example, you could have birthstone jewelry engraved with the baby’s initials or even the baby’s heartbeat! This could also include redesigning an old engagement ring.
Finding the perfect push gift is about finding something that matters to the new mother. A new mom’s baby is the first thing on her mind—so how can you add a personal touch to the jewelry that reminds her of her baby?
Adding hidden or symbolic details to jewelry for the new mother could be the perfect thing.
We hope this article gave you a bunch of gift ideas for the new mom in your life. Giving a push present can be a lovely and symbolic gesture. After all, having a baby is one of the most important events in someone’s life.
The gift could be anything, but one of the most touching push present ideas is personal jewelry. One of our favorite push present ideas is birthstone jewelry, like a beautiful necklace with a birthstone pendant. A safer option could be traditional fine jewelry, like diamond earrings, diamond studs, or a diamond pendant.
But, a push gift isn’t for everybody, especially if money is tight—which it usually is after preparing for a baby’s arrival!
