Have you heard about the latest trend of push presents? A push present is a gift given to a new mom as a way of saying thanks for growing and birthing a new little life. Sounds simple enough, right?
There’s more to the story because push presents aren’t without their controversy. Many people view push presents as being unnecessary since a new precious baby is already the ultimate gift. As a mom who has gone through 9+ months of pregnancy, labor, and navigated the foggy postpartum period, I can agree that yes – a baby is indeed the very best gift. However, I can also say that any type of gift given to a new mom means more than you’ll ever know. For that reason alone, push presents can be a great thing for a new mom in your life.
Push presents are most commonly given to a new mom by a spouse or family member, but they can also be given by a friend as a way of saying, “I see you and I’m here for you.” So what things would make a good push present you might ask? Let’s get to the good stuff!
