Perfect push present ideas for new moms


New mothers need all the love and support that they can get! After nine months of pregnancy, something sparkly is sure to make them smile.

In this blog, we’ll discuss the origin of push presents, tips, tricks, and gift ideas to get you started! We’ll also answer some commonly asked questions to make sure you’re on the right track.

What Is A Push Present?

You may have heard the term push present being thrown around at baby showers, gender reveal parties, and on social media. But you may have found yourself asking: What exactly is a push present? Let’s break it down. 

A push present is a gift from a family member or partner given to a new mother after childbirth. Especially for a first-time mother, the gift is meant to symbolize her transition into motherhood. It will signify this new life brought into the world. Any mother, regardless of how they give birth, can be given a push present! 

The gift can be presented before the baby’s birth or after- in the delivery room or in the nursery. Whatever feels best to you! 

Traditionally, push presents are given to mothers by their partners, but really, they can be a gift from any loved one- family or friend. Jewelry is the most common choice of gift, but it can also be whatever makes this new mom happy! 

When Did Push Presents Become Popular?

While birthstones and mother’s jewelry have been around for a while, the term push present didn’t really appear until the 1990s. In the decades since, the concept has become increasingly popular. In 2010, after several celebrities shared their own push presents on social media, the idea really took off. 

These days, new parents are simply looking for a nice way to make their wives feel appreciated and special. Push presents do the trick! 

How Much Should You Spend On A Push Present?

Push presents are often associated with heavy price tags (thanks to the large number of celebrities that participated in the trend), but this does not to be the case! 

Push presents don’t need to cost any certain amount of money for them to be meaningful. Buy whatever gift you know your partner will love for many years, regardless of its cost.

Why Jewelry Is The Best Option For A Push Present

After childbirth, new mothers deserve some pampering! Now is the time to gift her something that is for her and only for her. Jewelry gets the job done.

Unlike baby shower gifts, push presents are something special just for mom. A piece of jewelry is not only something that could last her a lifetime, but it’s also something that she can wear to make her feel beautiful- especially after such an arduous experience as giving birth. 

Nothing can make a new mother feel more special than a new necklace or pair of earrings! And even better, every time she wears her new jewelry, she’ll think of her beautiful child!

New mothers always deserve a thank you! Being pregnant for nine months and then giving birth is no easy task. Push presents are a sparkly way to say: thank you, we appreciate you, and we love you! 

What is a push present for husbands?

Some people are now considering giving their husbands push presents, too. At the end of the day, push presents are a token of appreciation and a unique way to mark such a meaningful milestone. With that in mind, you can definitely give a new dad a push present as well. 

Do friends give push presents?

Yes, close friends or family members can give push presents! There are no rules on showing appreciation and celebrating new life. If you have a dear friend who just became a new mother (or father!), feel free to show them you care with a push present. They are sure to be grateful.


Becoming a new parent is an exciting and often complicated time. New mothers especially, are tasked with unfamiliar frontiers and challenges. With all the trepidation that comes with a new phase in life, a gift is just a small way to say congratulations! And thank you for all your hard work. 

Whether it’s a mother’s first child or her seventh, she’s probably looking for some pampering. Mothers often give, give, give! She will undoubtedly be grateful for receiving something nice. 

Push presents can be big or small, lavish or modest. They can be from a partner or a close friend, and for new dads or new moms. They can be whatever you want them to be! Just as long as it’s special.

Sapphire Birthstone Care & Cleaning

Jewelers use a tool called the Mohs Hardness Scale to rate a gemstone’s general resistance to scratching. Gemstones are ranked from 1 to 10 on the scale, diamonds are the hardest at 10, while pearls are the softest at an average of 3. It’s important to note that higher gemstones are more durable while lower gemstones need a little more protection and care.

Sapphires are ranked 9 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, meaning the gemstone is highly durable and is not prone to cracking, chipping, or breaking. Furthermore, you do not need to be overly careful when cleaning them. 

But, this does not mean you can get away from caring for and cleaning your sapphire jewelry. Keep in mind that at least twice a year, you should check your sapphires to ensure the gemstone is not loose in its setting. Additionally, experts recommend storing your sapphire jewelry separately in its own container or in a soft bag to avoid being scratched.

The Mohs Scale of Hardness

Sapphires can also easily be cleaned at home. Even though you can use ultrasonic cleaners and steam with no problem, soap and water will do the trick. 

All you’ll need is:

  • A small bowl 
  • Soft-bristled bristled toothbrush
  • Warm water 
  • Mild soap 

Steps to clean your diamond:

  1. Add warm water into a small bowl with some mild soap.
  2. Soak your sapphire jewelry for ± 20 minutes. If your jewelry seems extra dirty, let it soak longer.
  3. Next, brush the gemstone with a soft-bristled toothbrush and rinse the jewelry with clean water.  
  4. It’s very important to dry the gemstone with a soft towel thoroughly.
  5. DO NOT allow the water to stay sitting on the gemstone.

Fun Facts About Sapphires

  • The Star of Adam is an oval-shaped blue star sapphire, currently the largest star sapphire in the world. Discovered in Sri Lanka in August 2015, it weighs 1,404.49 carats.

  • Sapphires and the Ruby gemstone have a lot in common, and many refer to them as ‘relatives’. Both rubies and sapphires form the same mineral corundum, a crystalline form of aluminum oxide. Red corundum is called ruby, while all other gem-quality forms of corundum are called sapphires.
