30 Best Push Present Ideas, Because Every Mom Deserves Something Special

Pick between a bit of luxury or something truly funny.

Okay, so the phrase "push present" is inaccurate (and a little gross). Traditionally, they're gifts given to women after they give birth, or "push out" the baby. We know now, of course, that families are created in all sorts of ways, and not all of them involve pushing. But the idea is a good one: Whatever the process, moms deserve something to honor the fact that they've made it home with a new baby, to celebrate the new family or to help them through those tough, new-baby days. And though push presents are usually given to new moms, Dad (or whoever else) might deserve a little something, too.

And while all baby gifts are appreciated, the best push presents are the ones that keep in mind that a parent is a person separate from the newborn. That's why jewelry remains the most popular gift for new moms — even if there's a baby monogram or birthstone, there's no sharing involved. Pampering gifts, like spa sets and lotions, also work because there's the expectation that the parent will get some "me time" in which to use them, too. And then there are those gifts that help make those first few weeks extra cozy, which really helps during those early sleepless nights.

For a truly one-of-a-kind gift, you can get a print made of the baby's heartbeat. (You need to have an mp3 of the heartbeat sound.) Customize it even more by choosing a color scheme that matches the baby's nursery, and adding text like the birthday and baby name.

Qeepsake makes it super simple to make a baby book. The service prompts parents over text or through an app to record memories and milestones, or they can text their own observations and photos at any time (say, when rocking the baby). Then, they can select among the responses to have a book printed. There are three pricing plans to choose from — the more expensive the plan, the more questions and memories a parent can log each day — and then softcover books start at $20 for 30 pages, and hardcover books start at $40 for 30 pages.

When you're a new parent, sleep is paramount. Don't let her waste a single second of sleep time with this eye mask, which Good Housekeeping Institute testers loved because the contoured design means you can actually open your eyes while you wear it.
