12 Push Presents Every Mom Will Love

It was about a week after the birth of our son, while I was sitting in my tiny apartment crying from a combination of happiness, exhaustion, emotional TV commercials, and the pile of laundry on the couch when my husband walked over with a box.

“What’s this?” I asked.

“Open it,” he said. “This is for you.”

What happened next doesn’t really matter. At this point, I would have been touched if the box contained a bunch of tissues and an Advil. But I won’t forget the gift my husband gave me in the midst of an emotional, crazy time. I realized how lucky I was to have a thoughtful husband who gave me such a beautiful, custom diamond ring.

A push present for me? A little something special (it doesn’t have to be a diamond ring) can really lift mom’s spirits in what could be a stressful period of change and adjustment.

In recent years, push presents have gained popularity, much like memes with cats, ugly Christmas sweaters, or joint names for celebrity couples. However, push presents have received a fair amount of criticism.

For those who don’t know what a push present is, a push present is a gift a mother gets from her partner after she gives birth. The gift can be completely ostentatious, like Beyonce’s blue 8 to 10 carat Tanzanite ring (I see what you did there, Jay-Z!), to a simple framed picture or bouquet of flowers. Some give push presents a thumbs down, saying it’s unnecessary since the baby should be enough of a gift. However, I believe a push present is a nice gesture, and one all moms can feel good about.

Not everyone can (or will) give an elaborate gift. Here are 10 push present ideas for every budget!

1. Smell the Roses

Pick up a fresh bouquet of flowers, a collection of herbal teas, or her favorite perfume or essential oil. Those are all scents that will sure draw up a smile. 🙂

2. Picture Perfect

Print out those images trapped in your or her iPhone and place them in a picture frame from Tiffany & Co.

3. Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend

Every girl loves diamonds. Whether that is a diamond necklace, diamond bracelet (tennis bracelets are so chic), diamond earrings, or a diamond ring (we love a classic infinity band), we know she will be head over heels!

4. Other Jewelry Options

Jewelry never goes out of style! Give her a necklace with the baby’s name, initials, or charm of a child on it.

Pro tip: Add a charm or a band for each subsequent child. 😉

5. Get Pampered!

New moms want to feel human, too. A trip to the spa, a mani-pedi, or a massage is a quick pick-me-up that goes a long way.

6. For the Fashionista

Does she love fashion? Perhaps she needs a fancy new diaper bag instead of her clutch or the hottest kicks to replace her heels (for now!).

7. Get Handy!

Surprise her by doing the dishes, folding the laundry, mopping the floor . . . ahem, this list could get long. And we recommend continuing this for a week or so. She did just give birth to your baby.

8. Be Charitable

Donate to a cause she believes in. You can make it in honor of her and the birth of your child.

9. A Night to Remember

Plan an elaborate date! Make it a fun evening of surprises that you know she’ll love, or let her pick the restaurant and maybe a movie. It’s a simple yet sweet way to make it about her.

10. Better Sleep

Buy new bedsheets or a new bed. While having a newborn doesn’t lend itself to uninterrupted sleep, make the most out of the few hours she gets to rest.

11. Vacation

You both may be homebound with your baby for a few months, but then you’ll want a getaway. Plan an elaborate vacation for your new little family that you all will love. Even a well thought out stay-cation would be a dream for any new mom.

12. A Letter from the Heart

The way to a man’s heart may be through his stomach (delicious meals), but the way to a woman’s heart is through her mind. Let her know just how special and loved she is by writing her a handwritten love letter. It will be something that she treasures forever and will possibly even frame.

A push present isn’t about the gift, it’s about the thought behind the gift. My husband and I spent months preparing for our baby’s arrival. We’re so lucky that our child is here; it doesn’t matter how exhausted, sore, or emotional I’ve become. All along, my husband was thinking about me. When I received this gift I knew that my husband cared for me, and that my efforts hadn’t gone unnoticed.

Instagram post 18073051357163780 When it comes to clamping the cord, our mottos is "what's the rush?" The blood volume in the placenta and cord at the time of birth is BABY'S blood. It's simply mid-circulation in the placenta at the time of birth. It just makes sense to leave it be and let it finish its job.⁠
No, the blood won't drain out of baby and go backwards into the placenta.⁠
No, your baby is not more likely to get sick from jaundice.⁠
Yes, your baby will still be getting oxygen while they figure out breathing, especially important if they need resuscitation.⁠
Yes, your baby will have better iron levels for the first year of their life.⁠
Look at how thick and engorged this cord still is at 4 and 18 minutes after baby was born. Just imagine how much blood baby would have lost if the cord had been clamped immediately, or at 60 seconds, 90 seconds, or 3 minutes! The placenta was expelled immediately before the 18 minute photo was taken. The pulse in the cord could still be felt even AFTER THE PLACENTA HAD BEEN DELIVERED! The cord was finally clamped and cut more than an hour after birth at 73 minutes. ❤️⁠

Instagram post 17852665306696124 With the holiday season upon us and moms trying to make everything magical for their families, remember to stop and take a moment to take care of you. ❤️ Have a hot cup of coffee, a long warm shower and some alone time. Communicate this with your partner not as a wish but as a necessity. We must take the time to take care of ourselves to better take care of them. 💕⁠

Instagram post 17852562805720320 Loneliness is a real thing in new motherhood and I want to be sure we talk about this. It's okay to say, "I feel lonely." We normalize one another's experiences when we share the reality of our journey. It can be so isolating when we bring our small human home and our lives revolve around his/her care. We feel detached from the outside world. The monotony of new motherhood can be heavy.⁠
.⁠
Here are some tips to combat isolation:⁠
.⁠
1️⃣ Get outside when possible.⁠
2️⃣ Video chat with friends/family.⁠
3️⃣ Join a virtual group.⁠
4️⃣ Invite someone to come over.⁠
5️⃣ Find a local mom's group.⁠
6️⃣ Listen to the radio or a podcast (it's interesting how this can make us feel connected with others)⁠
7️⃣ Run an errand--even grabbing a coffee via drive-thru can feel good.⁠
8️⃣ Get to know your neighbors.⁠
What would you add to the list?⁠

Instagram post 17867282176536875 ⁠For the week of Thanksgiving (and longer if you can!) let's focus on what we DO have instead of what we lack. The more we express gratitude and appreciate our blessings the more we recognize all of our blessings and everything we should be thankful for. 💕⁠
