Listen up dads and loved ones of an expectant mom – the person delivering this new child deserves a push present!
If your wife or partner just went through a pregnancy and delivery, purchasing a push gift is a great way to acknowledge their hard work and sacrifice.
What is a Push Present?
A push present is a gift that a loved one gives a new mother to commemorate the occasion of her giving birth. It’s typically given by the husband, boyfriend, or partner of the new mom as she’s experienced nine grueling months of pregnancy and finished off a painful labor and delivery to birth their child.
Push presents have been around a long time! It doesn’t have to be anything expensive, but truly is the thought that counts.
From jewelry, to keepsake items, to services, and more, there are tons of different kinds of push presents that you could present to your child’s mother.
Push Present Ideas for a New Mom
On this list, you’ll find 17 different push present ideas for all budgets. These range from a mere $20, all the way up to several hundred dollars! Be sure to think about what your wife would love, cherish, or find super helpful during those early stages of new motherhood.
Some of the most cherished pieces of jewelry that a mother will own are items that remind her of her children. Whether it’s names, dates, birthstones or a cute saying, any mom will love a piece of jewelry that tells the story of her child.
They can keep their children close to their heart with personalized jewelry with their child’s birthdate, name, initials, or birthstone. This was by far my favorite push present from my husband after our first baby.
Gold bar necklaces are very popular now, but you can choose between silver and gold. I originally just got my daughter’s birthdate on mine. It read 07.28.2017: the date I became a mom.
These personalized 14K gold rings are a perfect push present for a new mom! Not only can you add to the collection as your family grows, these rings can be worn for any occasion.

At only $29, this unique necklace is one she’ll cherish forever! Not only does it have the baby’s birthstone, but you can also include their birth date, weight, and any other stats that you’d like. Choose gold or silver based on what metal she typically wears.
The only drawback? Since babies come whenever they feel like it, it would be hard to surprise mom with this at birth! If you’re going to get this push present, wait until the baby has already made his or her appearance so you can be sure that the birth stone is accurate.
This sweet baby feet necklace comes with a sweet sentiment card! It’s not super flashy, so it can be worn with almost any outfit. The great thing about this necklace is that it can be ordered in advance and given to her at delivery since it’s not personalized. Also, if you’re a last minute shopper, Amazon always has you covered!
This bracelet is totally customizable, and makes a great push present for new moms! You can choose the color of the band, stones, and the initial to whatever suits your family best. The unique infinity band is the perfect symbol for the eternal love you have for your baby and family.

This frame allows you to take a clay imprint of the baby’s hand and footprints, as well as include a birth photo, so you’ll have memories of it all.
Book a Family Photoshoot
Newborn photos can be very expensive, but they are worth every penny.

This is a really cute idea for those wine-loving mamas out there! She’s waited 9 months to indulge in her favorite glass of Merlot, why not add a cute and witty label?
From her first full night of sleep to her first diaper blowout, giving a new mom a reason to celebrate is always a fun idea!
These wine labels can be put on her favorite bottles of wine to give her a reason to celebrate through the first years of her baby’s life!
My husband brought me home a case of my favorite wine when my youngest daughter was born, and it was a very appreciated gift! It also gave me something to serve when friends and family came by to visit after birth.
Practical push presents for new moms
Give the new mom a push present that she can actually use and appreciate from the first few months and throughout years of motherhood.
‘Mama’ Wine Glass or Coffee Mug
After an exhausting day with a newborn, coffee and wine is a must! This is a cute way to show off those drinks. Whether your wife is a wine or coffee lover, she will love one of these wine glasses or coffee mugs.
If your loved one is breastfeeding, she may just live in a robe for a little while! This comfy robe is the perfect gift for a new mom. It’s soft, cozy, and perfect to snuggle your babe in.
And if she’s recovering from a C-section, she may not want to wear anything that brushes against her incision.
Book a day at the spa
Whether it be just for a manicure/pedicure, or a relaxing massage, pre-planning a spa day for a new mom is a genius idea.
Eventually, she’ll need a break. By getting a gift card for a relaxing treatment in advance, you’re giving her the go-ahead to take time for herself.
A gift card to her favorite spot
Whether it be her favorite place for coffee, her favorite takeout spot, or her favorite brunch place, a gift card is a safe bet for a push present.
She may need to order takeout for lunch or grab a coffee through the drive thru a little more frequently now that she’s taken on the title of “mom.” A gift card is a great way to take some of the pressure off of being “super mom” for a bit.

You’ll likely need to remind her to use it, but this spa gift box is truly a gift that keeps on giving!
It includes a stainless steel tumbler, soaps, body butter, a bath bomb, and a card. Whenever she needs time to unwind and destress, you can remind her she has a spa kit waiting for her to use!
Your house officially becomes taken over by the baby even BEFORE you bring him or her home from the hospital. Cleaning is a chore that should not be done by a brand new mom. It would be better left to a professional.
A gift certificate for a house cleaning would be a great idea for a new mom.
