Push Present Ideas
Are you gearing up to welcome a new family member into the fold? This is a special time that you'll always want to remember. Most moms will simultaneously look forward to holding their sweet baby and being done with pregnancy. Being pregnant for 40 long weeks isn't easy, and if you ask them, they deserve a little something for it.
This is where push presents came from. These are gifts (typically by the father) to the mother for carrying the pregnancy and "pushing" the baby out. Yes, the baby is the biggest gift of all, but let's not pretend that a little extra treat isn't warranted.
You're in the right place if you're looking for the perfect push present for your wife or partner.
What Is a Push Present?
A push present, also known as a push gift, is a present given to a new mother to mark the occasion of childbirth. A partner or family most often gives it. Push presents were popularized in Western culture during the 2010s. If you're a partner or expecting mom yourself thinking, "Is this real? Are push presents a thing?" We can assure you they are! The practice grew largely due to social media. Push presents are usually given within the first year of a baby's birth.
Best Push Presents
Deciding on a push present for your wife or baby mama can be a daunting task. You want to ensure you buy her something that signifies her accomplishment—carrying a baby for 40 weeks — 10 months! — is hard work. Gifting her a push present she loves can make her feel seen and loved. Remember, push presents can come from husbands or family members.
What makes a good push present? Ultimately, when selecting a push present, you should choose an item for the person giving birth. This is NOT an item for the baby. Any baby necessities, like a diaper bag, can be given at the baby shower. A push present is specifically intended to celebrate this milestone for the birthing person. It could be a keepsake like jewelry, a clothing item that will make the person feel nice and cozy during that postpartum period, or a pampering session like a trip to the spa that will help them navigate new parenthood.
Luxury push presents have become increasingly popular. In fact, the average spend for a push gift is now between $1,000 to $2,000. If you're looking for a great push present for your wife, don't be afraid to go big. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you want to honor her by getting a push present that isn't an everyday item.

Push Present Jewelry Ideas
Let's get into the best jewelry push presents for your wife. Keep your ears peeled for any suggested item for which she may be dropping hints. For example, she's said that she'd love a pair of simple diamond earrings. Or perhaps you'd prefer to ask her if she has something in mind.
If she isn't sure or you want to keep it a surprise, that's okay too! We have plenty of ideas for partners and family members to pick out the perfect gift to present the new mama shortly after birth.
When picking a piece of jewelry to celebrate a baby's birth, you want to choose a classic piece that she'll have forever, not just what's trending. It's also important to invest in something made of high-quality materials so it will last.
Push Present Rings
Rings are a massively popular push present category. You can do everything from purchase a new ring to upgrade an existing wedding band. Here's a complete list of push-present ring ideas:
Diamond ring push present
If your partner doesn't already wear a diamond ring, this can be a beautiful occasion to gift her a treasure to remind her of this accomplishment.
Push present birthstone ring
Give the new parent a gift representing the baby through their birthstone. This customized push gift ring is perfect for sentimental moms.
Push present stackable ring
Gold Stackable Name Rings are a beautiful way to represent birth. You can create a stack that signifies the number of children you have. For each pregnancy, add a new ring. Personalized gifts are always special when it comes to push presents.
Push present upgrades
Another popular route is to gift diamond bands for push presents as an upgrade to existing wedding bands. In some cases, couples weren't able to afford their "dream" rings when they got engaged, so upgrading to a larger carat size allows them to swap in new jewelry that they've always envisioned. Additionally, hands swell during pregnancy, which can cause rings to not fit. If this happens to your partner, upgrading their wedding band or engagement ring can ensure they have something to wear.
Push Present Necklace
Does the mom-to-be love necklaces? There are several options that you can choose from depending on her preference. A push present necklace for mom is always a safe choice. Whether you go with an initial necklace or a gemstone necklace, she'll be able to wear a daily reminder of her tiny bundle of joy (that's now more than likely joined to her hip).
If you go for an initial necklace and this is her first time being a mom, consider selecting one that uses pendants for the initials. This will allow her to add more initials in the future should she choose to have more children.
If you're looking for a diamond necklace, those come in all shapes or sizes. The first thing you should consider is what type of jewelry she typically wears. Does she favor jewelry that's simpler and subtler? This Smile Bar Necklace is an elegant piece that is beautiful yet modest. She can layer it with other pieces she already has or wear it solo. Best yet, she can always wear it because it goes with everything. In those first few months of new mom life, she probably won't be dressing up or changing her jewelry a bunch.
If the mom loves jewelry with a little more pizzazz, consider this Diamond Script Name Necklace with her new baby's name. It's just as versatile as the piece above, yet it's a bit bolder. Not everyone loves wearing a name around their neck. If you know this is her style, though, it'll be a big hit. Personalized jewelry always makes a special new mom gift.
For both types of jewelry, select the metal she wears the most - yellow gold, white gold, or rose gold. If she primarily wears gold, buy a yellow gold necklace. If she often wears silver, go for the white gold. If you're not sure, peek at her wedding rings, they're a great hint!
Push Present Birthstone Jewelry
Whatever month the mom-to-be just gave birth is now a special month to her. Give her a birthstone push present that shows off the birthstone of her precious baby. You can either gift a necklace with a singular birthstone or go for a mix of family birthstones in a tennis bracelet. If she has multiple children, we can create pieces that incorporates everyone's birthstone. At Alexis Jae, we're happy to create a custom tennis bracelet of mom, dad, and baby birthstones. Just shoot us a message, and we'll help you design something specifically for the special mom in mind.
Push Present Bracelet
Are you considering a push gift bracelet? When it comes to bracelets, we recommend tennis jewelry. Every woman needs a tennis bracelet in their jewelry collection. It's classic and elegant and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Additionally, if the new blessing is a girl, this can be an amazing push present for mom. You can now gift her a gorgeous bracelet and a matching bracelet for her daughter to wear when she's older. Yes, push presents are supposed to be for mom and mom alone, but this is not a "baby" item that you're trying to gift to mom (think a bottle warmer or baby bassinet). This is a "mommy & me" gift which is a sweet approach for the right receiver. Mom might even eventually pass her push present down to her daughter.
Or you can just stick with a bracelet for mom! It's entirely up to you. Either way, this is among the best push present jewelry.
Push Present Earrings
A solid pair of earrings are another great option for push presents because they're suitable for daily wear. We love a good pair of diamond studs because they'll go with everything. She can pop them in her ears every day, and they won't get tugged at when the baby begins to figure out where their hands are.
That said, these Thin Diamond Hoop Earrings provide even more of a "wow" to a newly postpartum mom. They're the perfect pair to put in your ears for that first date night out. Diamond studs are also a classic push present gift.
A push present should be a thoughtful way to thank the woman you love for the service she did for you and your child. Make sure you reflect on what she wants and buy her something she'll love—whether that's a diamond tennis bracelet or a spa day for a few hours to herself. There's a lot to choose from. These gifts also make great Mother's Day and Valentine's Day gifts too.
