Most Wanted Push Presents According to Moms

Most Wanted Push Presents According to Moms

Moms have spoken and personalized jewelry is at the very top of their wish list for “push presents” or gifts to celebrate the arrival of a baby. In one survey, 73% of new moms agreed that jewelry makes the perfect push gift (followed by pampering experiences like spa days). While moms are good at nearly everything, one thing they may not excel at is letting their partner know what kind of push present they would love to have to commemorate this occasion. So, what exactly is a push present? If jewelry is the best gift, what kind of bling is the best push present for a wife and new mom? Here’s our top recommendations and a little inspiration to get you started.


What is a push present?

A push present is a gift given to the new mom by her partner after she’s given birth. It is a symbol of her gift in bringing a new life into the world. As one of life’s biggest milestones, you can see why jewelry would be a thoughtful gift. It is a tangible, filled with sparkles keepsake of the bond you now share.

Bearing a child is hard work! Nine months of pregnancy followed by labor, birth (possibly even an unplanned c-section) breastfeeding and the difficult postpartum time will no doubt change the life of a new mom. No wonder she wants to celebrate a first child (and yes, every one after that!) with a’s a sweet and well deserved thank you.


Celeb Push Presents

While new mom gifts have been around for decades, celebrities coined the phrase “push present” and gave it new life.

  • Kylie Jenner gave birth to Stormi Webster and was gifted an extravagant diamond ring by baby daddy Travis Scott.

  • Kim Kardashian West hinted at a diamond choker for when Saint was born.

  • On her first night out after giving birth to their first child, Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé was spotted wearing an huge blue ring given by JayZ.

  • New dad Mark Anthony gifted Jennifer Lopez diamond earrings after the birth of their twins Max & Emme.

  • Nicole Kidman’s hubby Keith Urban presented her with a diamond eternity ring from Cartier after the birth of baby girl Sunday.

  • Ben Affleck gave his then-wife a diamond ring after welcoming their first daughter, Violet, into the world in 2005.


What makes a good gift idea?

The perfect gift is given out of love and with the recipient in mind. New moms will undoubtedly want a bauble that can be worn often with an ode to the new baby. Here are some of our favorite push present ideas:


Diamond Earrings

Diamond earrings are a perfect gift for a new mother. Not only are they no fuss but diamond earrings can be worn daily, look fantastic no matter what and they always fit. We also love the idea of a small diamond hoop that can even be slept in.

Pro tip: if you chose diamond hoop earrings, consider purchasing a petite version, something that sits close to the ear. When baby is just a little bigger, she can still wear them daily without worrying about them getting caught on a one year old’s curious fingers!


Birthstone Jewelry

A well chosen piece of birthstone jewelry can be a very thoughtful gift. We love these stacking bands by Tacori, which are available in the months of April, May, July and September. Tacori loves customized jewelry and would be happy to craft a ring with other precious gems. Visit your local Tacori Authorized Partner for more information.

Pro tip: if you’re considering birthstone jewelry, give yourself extra time for a special order to be placed, especially if you are considering a custom design.
Gemstones for each month:
  • January - Garnet

  • February - Amethyst

  • March - Aquamarine

  • April - Diamond

  • May - Emerald

  • June - Alexandrite, Pearl

  • July - Ruby

  • August - Peridot

  • September - Sapphire

  • October - Opal, Pink Tourmaline

  • November - Citrine

  • December - Blue Topaz, Tanzanite, Turquoise


Engraved Jewelry

We really love the Bar Collection from Birks. Crafted out of either sterling silver or 18K yellow gold, you have your choice of necklaces (with the bars horizontal or vertical), bracelets, and earrings. Birks will even engrave the piece complimentary! You’ll just have to decide if you want baby’s name or their birthdate.


A Diamond Bracelet

A diamond bracelet is a luxurious gift for first time momma’s. We especially love the Splash collection from Birks for inspiration. This solitaire diamond bracelet would make a perfect gift, wouldn’t you agree?

Pro tip: while we love the idea of a diamond bracelet to mark this occasion, one survey of new moms confirms that necklaces top their wist list. Rings and earrings come in second and third respectively, while bracelets are last


Rose Gold Jewelry

A baby girl can be uniquely symbolized by any jewelry made out of soft rose gold.

This leaf wrap diamond ring is low set & oh so pretty!


This petite surfboard necklace from Tacori is a timeless style that can be treasured for years to come.


What other gifts make a good push present?

Consider your mate and other things that they enjoy. If they enjoy pampering, what about a spa day, manicure/pedicure, or possibly a relaxing weekend away at a resort like Sparkling Hill? If you can twist grandma’s arm into watching the baby of course! Does she love handbags? Perhaps a luxurious tote or diaper bag from Gucci, Chanel or Bottega Veneta. The key is not in “what” so much as something that will make her feel accomplished in this amazing feat.


In Summary:

You could chose a million things to commemorate the birth of a baby. But the most thoughtful gifts, the ones that stand out in her mind are the ones that are given with love in your heart. Choose carefully and with the new mom in mind...we're happy to help!

With Love, Perrara
