Having a baby is one of the most difficult things a person can do, which is why it’s customary to buy a push present for your partner after they give birth. Deciding on what to buy can be tricky, particularly if your significant other is tough to shop for, but it’s important to show a little support and appreciation after your baby is born. There are a lot of ways to approach post-pregnancy gift-giving, so it’s worth it to take some time to shop around before you decide what you want to buy. If you need some inspiration, read on for three great push present ideas.

1. Self-Care Products


There’s no denying that having a baby is an incredibly difficult experience. By the time the baby is born, the person who carried the child is likely to be both mentally and physically exhausted. Few people who are more in need of self-care are new parents, especially in the aftermath of birth. Try to talk to your partner in advance about what products make them feel more relaxed and put together a basket of all of their favorites as a surprise.

You can also look for unique products that may help pregnant or recently pregnant people, like certain essential oils. You can look up “rosehip oil pregnancy” if you want an example of essential oil that many expecting and new parents find to be beneficial. There are some oils, including cinnamon, rosemary, oregano, and clove, that aren’t safe to use during pregnancy. Other oils, like orange, lavender, eucalyptus, and rosehip are all safe to use both during and after pregnancy.

2. Jewelry


Jewelry is a classic choice for a push present, though the right gift will depend entirely on your partner’s preferences and your budget. You can look into colored stones trends and other new styles that are popular if you want to get something unique or opt for a more classic style. Think about your significant other’s personal style when you’re shopping, rather than just looking for the most expensive or flashiest piece of jewelry. You want to invest in something they’ll appreciate and enjoy wearing on a regular basis. It’ll be even more special since it will remind them of a significant moment in both of your lives.

3. Loungewear


The reality is that new parents are always on the go, and bodies can take time to recover from the physical experience of being pregnant. One thing that most people will appreciate after giving birth is comfortable clothes to relax in at home. If your partner is breastfeeding, you can look for some cozy options that will help make the process easier. Most people don’t have a wardrobe of post-pregnancy attire ready to go, so having a closet full of appropriate and comfy clothes waiting for them when they arrive home can be a perfect push present.

Loungewear is also a useful present given the ongoing restrictions due to the global pandemic. With all of us spending more time at home, it’s a good idea to adjust your wardrobe accordingly. Unfortunately, COVID-19 seems unlikely to fade away for the foreseeable future, but there are a lot of things you can do to make your experience at home safer and more comfortable for your whole family after a pregnancy.

Push presents are the best way to show your significant other that you appreciate the strength and energy it takes to go through a pregnancy and birth a child. You know the person best, so you can use their preferences and individual interests to get ideas if you aren’t sure where to start. Self-care is always much needed after giving birth, so you can pick up some of your significant other’s favorite products to surprise them when they get home. Jewelry is a more traditional option that almost everyone can appreciate. You can also opt for some loungewear to help them stay cozy as they recover. No matter what you buy, the important thing is that you show your partner that you care.
