Traditionally after a woman gives birth, their partner might buy them a few congratulatory balloons or a bunch of flowers, and although the thought is lovely, it now seems that popping to the hospital shop is a little too easy.
Push presents are the modern way of saying congratulations to a mum on the birth of her little bundle of joy and are usually given by the husband, boyfriend, or partner.
Jewellery is often a popular choice as a push present, but there are a few more ways to say congratulations to mum on the birth of your baby.
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, while Khloe Kardashian revealed Tristan Thompson bought her a £40k pink diamond bracelet.
