Guest Post: Push Presents For New Mothers?

Okay, y'all. Where were these push presents when I was having my babies??? NO FAIR! I am totally jealous of this idea, and I think I should get two gifts now to make up for not getting them then!

Today we have a great guest post to explain this awesome trend, in case you are behind the times like me!

Now that you have given birth, there's no doubt the number one thing on your mind is bonding with the new member of your family. The whole world of diapers, bottles, and strollers can wait until you get home.

But lately there is a new thing to add to that list - push presents.

Push presents are gifts given to a new mother to celebrate the newborn baby and to recognize her role in the childbirth. Usually the father buys it, but sometimes your parents or friends might get you one as well.

While we might have heard about the extravagant rings and jewelry that celebrities buy each other to celebrate the birth of their children, the fact is that push gifts do not have to be complicated.

Even simple pieces of jewely or a spa-day gift certificate are appropriate.

This really is a quick-growing trend. In fact, a recent poll conducted found out that about half of new mothers wanted some kind of push present to celebrate this time. Surprisingly though only 25% of women actually asked for one.

Many guys simply do not know about this trend though. There is nothing wrong with giving him a gentle nudge about this type of gift if you'd like one.

How about you? Did you want a push present, and did you ask for one? If so, what did you get? Let us know!

  1. Push present. Though the name is a bit silly, I do agree with the idea. Here’s the reason:
    People are getting the wrong idea about the tradition. The tradition is designed to give the mother something that she will have for the rest of her life that commemorates her experience of bringing a new life into the world. The actual gift itself should be symbolic of an endless love and desire for protection of the mother and child throughout their lives. It’s deep, emotional, and beautiful. That being said, new shoes would not fall into the category of a “perfect push present”, and it is not a selfish act but rather a self-LESS act of kindness and joy. Juno Lucina just launched a whole line of beautiful push gifts for new mothers ( That is what the perfect push gift looks like.
