Help a new Mom celebrate the arrival of her baby with a thoughtful gift that will make the transition to motherhood that little bit smoother.
My Top Push Present For New Moms
Nursing and feeding a baby can feel awkward and uncomfortable at first for a new Mom. However, using a nursing pillow will make it a much more pleasant experience for both Mom and baby, which makes the Boppy nursing pillow our top gift choice here.
Push presents have experienced a surge in popularity in recent years, with partners and spouses wanting to treat their wives and girlfriends to something special to celebrate giving birth.
After all, she's just gone through 9 months of pain and sacrifice, topped off with the whole torture of childbirth, to deliver something wonderful into both of your lives.
And a gift is a great way to show your love and appreciation to her.
So I've put together the following list of push present ideas for new Moms, which contains things she will enjoy, as well as practical items that will help make the transition into motherhood that little bit smoother.
1. A Piece Of Birthstone Jewelry
One of the most popular push present ideas is to get a new Mom a piece of jewelry to mark the occasion.
This should be something meaningful, sentimental, and memorable, that will always remind them of this time.
So you could get them a locket or a pendant engraved with your baby's name and birth date.
Or maybe a birthstone ring, bracelet, or necklace to mark the birth month that they can wear with pride.
However, each new Mom will have different tastes in jewelry, so this is one gift where you may need to ask to get a few pointers beforehand.
2. A Versatile Baby Carrier
A new Mom is going to have her hands full, both literally and figuratively, when looking after her little one.
So a great gift to get for them is a baby carrier.
As this allows her to carry her baby around with her as she carries out her tasks, but still keep both hands free.
And keeping your baby close to you in this way helps to calm and soothe them, while also strengthening the mother-baby bond even more deeply.
So if you want to give a new Mom a top class baby carrier, you should check out the Ergobaby 360.
As not only is it safe and comfortable to wear, it's versatile enough that you can carry your baby in multiple positions, such as facing towards you, facing away from you, on your hip, or on your back.
3. A Fashionable Diaper Bag
No new Mom can take their baby anywhere without having a well-stocked diaper bag with them.
As they will need to be changed regularly, and this can happen at the most inopportune of times and places.
So the next gift idea for new Moms is to get them a fashionable diaper bag that they will be proud to carry around with them.
And for this I would recommend the JuJuBe BFF range, as they have many different designs such as the one above that a new Mom will be love.
4. Something Comfy To Wear Around The House
As a new Mom you are going to be spending a lot of time at home caring for your baby in the first few months after the birth.
So getting them something comfortable to wear around the house during this time is a top gift idea, especially as it's a time when their body will be recovering as well.
Now this could be a nice dressing gown, pajamas, nightshirts, house dresses, or whatever they feel most comfortable wearing.
Or how about doubling up and getting them matching house clothes for them and their baby, such as the Baby Be Mine nightgown and onesie above.
5. A Pair Of Comfy Slippers
A new Mom is likely to be on her feet all day taking care of her baby, which means sore and aching feet are commonplace at the end of each day.
So a pair of comfy slippers make for a great gift for them, as they can slip these on to relax in when they get some time to themselves at last.
And I think a great choice for this are the UGG Birches slippers.
As these ones are made from a soft and plush sheepskin that feels amazing to wear, not to mention keeping your feet warm and snug too.
6. A Pair Of Yoga Pants
A pair of yoga pants will be a new Mom's best friend during her first few months of child-rearing.
As these are super comfy, flattering, and practical to wear when looking after the baby at home, and look great on you when you take them outside for a walk in the pram too.
So treating a new Mom to some stylish new yoga pants is a fantastic gift idea for them, and if you really want to make their day then they'd be over the moon with a pair from the Lululemon range.
7. A Hands-Free Pumping Bra
When you're breast feeding it can be really time-consuming to pump for milk on a regular basis.
And as every mother knows, time is one commodity you are always short of!
So a gift idea that can make pumping easier and give them back some precious time is to get them a pumping bra.
As this will allow them to pump their breasts while simultaneously getting on with other tasks (or simply relaxing for a few minutes!).
And a good choice for this is the Simple Wishes pumping bra, as this one is really comfortable to wear, can be used with all electric pumps, and keeps their hands free for other things.
8. A Glider Rocker Chair
Having a comfortable rocker and glider chair is a wonderful thing for a new Mom.
As it gives them the perfect place to sit and rock their baby when they're nursing them, while also providing somewhere comfy to sit and take the weight off when they get a few minutes to themselves.
And if you want to treat them to a special chair then check out the Dutailer Sleigh glider.
As this one reclines, rocks, and glides, while also having super comfortable and supportive cushions and an ottoman to rest their feet on.
So they can literally put their feet up with one of these!
9. A Nursing Pillow
When you are nursing and feeding your baby for the first time it can feel awkward at first and may lead to aches and pains in your lower back and arms.
However, something that will make it a lot easier on you and the baby is to use a nursing pillow.
As these pillows wrap around you and bring the baby up to a more comfortable height for feeding, while also keeping the baby more comfortable and supported at the same time.
So they make for the ideal gift for a new Mom, with the Boppy nursing pillow being my choice here.
10. A New Camera For All Those Baby Photos
As a new Mom your baby will constantly delight and amaze you every day as they grow and develop, surprising you, making you laugh, and being so adorable that you can't help but feel the deep maternal love.
And as a consequence you'll want to capture each and every moment of their development with photos and videos to savor and share with your close friends and family.
So why not gift a new Mom a top quality digital camera so they can do this well.
As something like the Canon Powershot G7 X will allow them to take brilliant photos and shoot crystal clear 4k video that they can keep and cherish forever.
11. A Pampering Gift Set For Mom & Baby
A new Mom will often be so consumed with taking care of their baby that they can forget to take care of themselves.
So gifting them a pampering kit of their favourite beauty products is a lovely idea, as this will remind them to stop and take some time for themselves too.
And one option that works well for new Moms is the Aveeno Mom and baby essential daily care set.
As this contains a range of safe skincare lotions, body washes, and moisturisers for Mom and baby, so they can both have healthy and glowing skin.
12. A Set Of Bath Bombs
One real luxury for a new Mom is being able to take a hot, relaxing bath at the end of another hard day of looking after their baby.
As they will likely be physically and mentally exhausted with the demands that caring for the little one places on them.
And a hot bath is the perfect way to relieve stress, switch off, and let those aches and pains in your body just melt away.
So getting a new Mom a nice set of bath bombs like the ones above from Beauty By Earth makes for a great gift for them.
As these will literally fizz up their bath times, and help them to relax and recharge ahead of tomorrows new battles.
13. A Blackout Sleep Mask
If you asked every new Mom what their ideal gift would be, I'd hazard a guess that more sleep would be the overwhelming winner.
As a new baby can keep you up all night with their needs, and make getting a full 8-hour sleep seem like an impossible dream rather than a possibility.
So you need to adapt to avoid total exhaustion and burnout, and one way to do that is to take short naps when you can during the day.
And a gift that can really help a new Mom to do this is the Manta blackout sleeping mask.
As wearing one of these masks will give them the darkness they need to drift off in the middle of the afternoon and recharge with a much needed power nap.
14. An Under Eye Concealer Roller
Another problem with a lack of sleep for new Moms is that they can start to look tired as well, with dark bags developing under the eyes and their sparkle diminishing.
So a small gift idea that can help them avoid this is the Garnier SkinActive under eye roller.
As this helps to conceal dark circles and reduce eye puffiness, while at the same time brightening the skin to give you more of a healthy glow.
Which will help a new Mom both look and feel better about themselves, no matter how tired they feel inside.
15. A 5-Year Baby Memory Journal
Raising a child is a wonderful and rewarding thing full of joy, love, and laughter, but it can go by in the blink of an eye.
Which means you could end up waving your kid off for their first day at school wondering 'Where the hell has all the time gone?'.
So getting a new Mom a 5-year baby journal like the one above is a wonderful gift idea.
As this gives them the prompts to record the different stages of their babies development, and capture all the amazing things that are happening while they are fresh in the memory.
And this will become something they can then look back on when they want to relive those memories, which makes it such a lovely gift to give.
16. Treat Them To A Professional Massage
A new Moms body will be full of tiredness and aches and pains after having a baby.
Because not only has she gone through the whole act of giving birth, caring for her new baby is a 24/7 process and can be a real shock to the system.
So when she is feeling up to it, why not treat her to an afternoon off by booking her in for a professional massage.
As this will feel like heaven to her tired mind and body, as a skilled masseuse can work out all her kinks and knots and get her feeling relaxed, refreshed, recharged, and ready to go again.
17. A Good Bottle Of Wine (Or Whatever Her Favourite Tipple Is)
During pregnancy women need to forego alcohol completely for the health and well-being of the growing baby inside them.
And going 9 months without is tough if they like to enjoy a drink to help them relax and unwind.
So getting them a really good bottle of wine (or whatever her drink of choice is) is a great push present.
As this is one thing she's probably been craving and looking forward to for months.
And it will also give you both a chance to toast your new baby and your new life as parents too.
18. Pay For A House Cleaner For The First Few Months
A new Mom is going to have so much on her plate already when caring for her baby that also keeping on top of the housework and household chores is going to be extremely difficult.
So it's important that you pitch in if you can so it frees her time up to focus on the baby and look after herself too.
But if you can't do that because of work commitments, then it's a great idea is to hire a cleaner to come around a couple of times per week for the first few months instead.
As this will take so much pressure off of a new Mom and give her more time to spend with the little one.
Which is a win-win for everybody.
Becoming a new mom is a beautiful thing, but it can also be tough to get used to looking after them 24/7.
So treat your partner to a push present that celebrates the birth of your child, but also helps her to manage the transition into motherhood.
As the gift ideas I've given you here will all be appreciated by a new Mom, and are things they'll find useful for different parts of their motherhood journey.
