Push Present! Gift Ideas for the New Mom

A push present is a trendy way to celebrate a new mom.... it's a gift that a father gives to the mother to celebrate the birth. It's a special "thank you" for carrying the baby for 9 months, and dealing with all the ups and downs of pregnancy, but also as a special treat after an arduous labor or birth. Anyone who has been through a birth knows that there could be nothing more special or wonderful than the newborn that has just joined your family, but I definitely agree that it's nice for a hubby to mark the occasion with a special gift showing appreciation to his wife! Here are some great ideas.

1. Splurge on a designer diaper bag that any new mom would be happy to tote around! These are my favorites.

Kate Spade Stevie Diaper Bag
Marc Jacobs Eliz-A-Baby Bag

Gucci Supreme Diaper Bag

2. Mom jewelry is really making waves right now. There are so many fun options... a new mom would love to wear her baby's initial or birthstone as a necklace or even as stacked rings or a fun bracelet. Plus, it's fun to add to these as your family grows! There are so many options!!

3. Is there a nursery item she's been coveting, but is hesitant to splurge on? Surprise her with a gorgeous and comfortable rocker, or beautiful crib bedding.

4. Any new mom would love family portraits. There are so many wonderful photographers that do newborn and family photoshoots in the comfort of your own home. Why not set that up as a perfect surprise, and a lasting momento?

5. All women love a shiny new piece of bling...take a look at my friend's company, FifthBond for beautiful, unique pieces.

6. If she's into practical gifts, a top-of-the line kitchen appliance will be a perfect choice. For example, the Vitamix Blender will allow her to make her favorite drinks, soups, smoothies, sauces... and even whip up baby food for the little one.

7. Her feet have been hurting for 9 months... treat them to some extravagant heels!

8. Plan your first vacation as a family with the baby! You can't go wrong with Atlantis in the Bahamas (and they are having a sale for fall travel!)

Here are some outrageous celebrity push presents.... and just for fun, speculation and ideas on what Duchess Kate may receive from her husband after delivering the little Prince.

Push presents - what a fun tradition! Don't you think?
