It’s incredibly difficult to know how to say thank you to the mother of your new baby. She’s been through a rollercoaster of emotions to bring a new life into the world – one the two of you created together. How can you possibly honor her 9 month journey through sweat, tears and hard work?
Now, we know the biggest gift for any mom is her newborn baby and nothing can come close to that. But unlike labor, a congratulatory “push gift” never hurts. After all – she deserves it.
Whether it’s your first or your tenth, every child’s birth should be marked in a significant way. We’ve found that parents often choose to celebrate a pregnancy with a “push gift” – a small token of appreciation given to a woman by her partner just after the baby is born.
Unlike gifts a new mom receives from a baby shower, a push present is all about her. Some women receive vacations, spa trips or bottles of perfume. However, these types of gifts are fleeting – enjoyed but without a lasting memory of the pregnancy. A gift to celebrate the birth of your child should be something she can treasure forever.
In fact, that’s why jewelry is the most popular selection for “push gifts”. More and more, we hear from new moms that push gifts are the most meaningful and precious items they own. A reminder of the love she has for you and her child.
So, if you’re looking to make a lasting impression of the miracle of birth (and leave out the memory of labor), here are a few ideas for simple “push gifts” from our staff at Shreve & Co.
Stackable bands have grown in popularity in the last few years for many reasons outside of just being a major fashion trend. The reason we love these as gifts for new moms is because they offer a lot of versatility and can be personalized to the child. Stackable bands can be worn alone on either hand, paired with existing rings or used to further highlight wedding rings. Because they are often the made with the durability of wedding bands, these rings can be worn everyday.
Stackable bands also come made with a variety of gemstones. We often see partners select rings that showcase gemstones that represent the month of the child’s birth. Many also have these gifts engraved with dates and personal messages to further personalize it.
