Push presents are a relatively new trend that has become enormously popular in recent years. Not sure what a push present is? Not to worry – RedEnvelope is here to help! We’ve done the research and put together a collection of the best birthday gifts for mom and gifts for new baby. Push presents tend to fall into one of two categories: jewelry and luxury gift baskets. Read on for details on this new way to welcome a little one into the world!
Celebrities kicked off the push present trend, with several high-profile husbands giving their wives jewelry after their baby was born. Trinity jewelry, like RedEnvelope’s intertwined trinity rings necklace, is the go-to gift for this most special of occasions. The three rings represent your past, present, and future together. Similar meanings are conveyed through jewelry with three main gems or three graduated rings. Family jewelry gifts use shapes and stones to symbolize each person. Our family necklace, for example, has a free-form, modern pendant with two silver parent shapes, and one, two, or three child shapes. Loving arms and pea in a pod necklaces use small freshwater pearls to represent each child; these types of accessories are a natural choice for her baby gift.
Birthstone necklaces are another new traditional push present that she will love. Select a charm or pendant with baby’s birthstone, and include birthstones for older brothers and sisters as applicable. Some brand new parents like to position their baby’s birthstone in the middle of their own, to represent how the new baby is surrounded by their love. We also have birthstone jewelry for men, so dad can enjoy his own push (partner) present! Our artisan inspired charm jewelry features rustic details with purposeful imperfections; create a unique piece by choosing one charm for baby’s initial, one for the birthstone, and one cameo charm with either a boy or girl silhouette.
Romantic gifts of jewelry are expected from the parent that didn’t push, but other loved ones have been purchasing push presents for new mommies also. Comforting gift baskets of soothing spa products or gourmet indulgences will mean the world to a woman who has just delivered! Spa gift baskets come in assorted aromatherapy scents, including calming lavender and invigorating citrus. Some new moms are sensitive to smells, so this gift basket may need to be set aside for the first month or two. She will still appreciate the loofah sponges and wooden massage rollers, though! This is especially true when her partner treats her to a bubble bath and a back scrub. New baby gift baskets include unscented, baby-safe shampoo, lotion, and powder; these can be used if her sense of smell is still heightened.
Gourmet gift baskets are our final suggestions for new mom presents that she will love. Some pregnant women have to restrict their usual diet, so they may be ready to indulge once the baby is finally here. Nursing moms can’t enjoy beer or cocktails, but they can savor a box of chocolate truffles or hand-dipped strawberries. Other baskets come with salty snacks aplenty, so there are options to satisfy her post-pregnancy food cravings. Exhausted new parents will definitely appreciate having delicious, convenient food on hand. Our special new baby dipped berries and cookie bouquets offer whimsical, hand-decorated treats with a baby boy or baby girl theme. If the baby is being bottle-fed, you can splurge on a wine gift basket instead!
These gifts are known as “push presents”, but that name might be misleading. Every new parent goes through a tough period bringing their child into the world, be it through labor and delivery or adoption proceedings. Blended families and parents with new adopted children should be given the same congratulations gifts as other new parents, and you can find plenty of options right here at RedEnvelope. If they’ve adopted an older child, you can also find toys and gifts for kids here as well!
