Growing and carrying a baby is hard work—not to mention birthing them. So when your pregnant partner finally delivers what is likely the greatest gift of your life, they deserve a whole lot of admiration and appreciation. This is where a push present comes in. From silky robes to personalized jewelry and sentimental keepsakes, we’ve curated a list of the top push gifts for the new mom in your life.

What Is a Push Present?

You may have heard the term in passing, but exactly what is a push present? A push gift is an item given to a new mom in recognition of the monumental job that is childbirth and to commemorate the entry into motherhood. (And let’s be clear: Moms who have c-sections absolutely deserve push gifts too.)

In terms of push present etiquette, this type of gift can be given before or after baby’s birth—or even in the delivery room. Traditionally, push presents are given by a partner but family members, co-parents or even a close friend can give one too. Jewelry is a go-to push present idea, but it doesn’t have to be the only option. The best gifts for new moms are those that are meaningful and show your love, devotion and joy. And while many people think push presents have to be pricey, the reality is that you can find something perfect at every price point.
