The Do's, Don'ts and Absolute Must's for Push Presents

Secrets Shhh
Welcoming a newborn into the world is a gift that is so precious and a journey not everyone is lucky enough to take. In recent years, welcoming a newborn into the world is shortly followed by a “push present” whereby traditionally, the mother-to-be is given a gift by their significant other as appreciation for the journey they have gone through and the beautiful baby she has delivered.
We’ve gone ahead and found out the do’s and don’ts of push presents, so you don’t have to.
  • Take the time to look for something that perfectly represents your partner and journey. This gift represents an emotional aspect of your lives so reflect on your pregnancy, their personality, their hopes and dreams.
  • Make sure you pick a time when it’s just the two of you. Enjoy the intimacy and the special bond that’s just been formed between the both of you
  • Enjoy the new tradition you’ve created for your family. Who knows, in 5 years you might have a few more versions of this gift.
  • Don’t give your present while she’s still in the delivery room. There will be a million other things running through your minds, and your priority is your new baby!
  • For the receiver, don’t compare gifts. Push presents are still relatively new to society, and others may not appreciate you bragging about your new gift.
  • Don’t organise a holiday (a new baby and travel? No thanks!), Lingerie (She might not be feeling her sexiest after giving birth) or something that is really for yourself (A new mower? Not so thoughtful for your partner or your sleeping baby…)
  • Make it meaningful, don’t blow your budget for the sake of purchasing a big ticketed item.
  • Ensure that when you do hand your gift over, your partner is aware that this gift is more than just a push But a gift to show your appreciation, love, care for the journey you have just gone through.
  • Last but certainly not least, enjoy your gorgeous new baby!
