Traditionally, after a woman gives birth, their partner might buy them a few congratulatory balloons or a bunch of flowers. Although the thought is lovely, it now seems that popping into the hospital shop is a little too easy. The modern age has birthed push presents for mums and it is defiantly an idea we can get behind.
Celebrities such as Stacey Solomon have revealed the push presents they received; Stacey’s partner Joe Swash organised for her favourite chef to cook her and her family a meal as a birthing present. Khloe Kardashian revealed Tristan Thompson bought her a £40k pink diamond bracelet.
Jewellery is often a popular choice as a push present, but there are a few more ways to celebrate mum on the birth of your baby.

Who buys the push present?
Push presents are the modern way of saying congratulations to a mum on the birth of her little bundle of joy. There are no rules, a push present can be given by anyone. However, it is usually the husband, boyfriend, or partner who chooses this gift.
Your push present doesn't need to break the bank. It is a thoughtful way of expressing your gratitude and celebrating all of the hard work that your partner has endured over the last nine months.
If you want to treat your partner to a gift after the arrival of your little one, we’ve got some push present ideas to suit all budgets that mum will love, from personalised jewellery to pamper sets.

What is the best push present to give a new mum?
Unlike a baby shower present, a push present is exclusively for the mother who has just given birth. So much of pregnancy is geared up for the arrival of your new bundle of joy. This present is to commemorate all of the hard work that the mother has endured. So splash out on something that will make them feel good.
The most typical push presents are keepsakes, pampering items or jewellery. But you should pick something you know they will love.
