Yes, the term 'push presents' may be slightly questionable, but the sentiment behind it certainly isn’t. A gorgeous new-born baby is, of course, reward enough for the long, painful hours spent in labour, but if there’s anyone who deserves a little bit of spoiling it’s a new mum.
The gift doesn’t need to be extravagant (we’re not all Kim K and can request a $1m dollar diamond choker!), but it does need to be meaningful. An engraved pendant, an eternity ring or her favourite gemstone: choose a gift that will make her feel special, after all, she deserves it. Here are some of our favourite gifts for new mums.
PERSONALISED FREYA NECKLACE
Merci Maman, London, UK
Personalised jewellery is a great option for a push present. A circular mother of pearl sits on the front of this dainty pendant, with room for a personalised hand engraving on the back. You’ve got 25 characters to play with, so make sure your message is short and sweet but full of meaning.
