Preusser Jewelers Recommends Perfect Gifts for New Mothers

Gift Suggestions for New Mothers from Preusser Jewelers

“Push Presents,” also known as “Baby Baubles” gained popularity in the United States in the 1990s. These are gifts usually given by a partner to a new mother to mark the occasion of her giving birth to their child. The trend was started by celebrities, but the gift doesn’t have to be expensive. Preusser Jewelers has lots of ideas (like jewelry featuring the new baby’s birthstone) that any new mom will treasure for years to come.

All You Need to Know About Push Presents

In general, the practice of giving gifts to new mothers isn’t a new one. New moms in England have traditionally been given diamond rings. Gold is a common gift for new mothers in Greece and India.

The basic thought behind the practice is expectant mothers get a lot of presents at baby showers, but those gifts are actually for the new baby. Some feel that the mother should be given a special gift too.

These tokens typically come from her partner, but may also be given by her close friends, siblings, or parents. If the new baby has older siblings, the gift may even come from them, and dad or grandparents may want to do something special also.

Perfect Gifts for New Mothers

As we already mentioned, the gift to the new mom doesn’t have to be expensive. It doesn’t even have to be a material item. Gifts of your time, such as free babysitting would be a much-appreciated gift for the new mom. She could use this time for a date night, going shopping, or just some time to herself to do things she can’t when taking care of an infant.

Small gestures can also mean a lot. Dropping off a meal for the family is always a welcome surprise. Walking the dogs, picking up deliveries, taking the trash out or other chores the dad would usually handle will free him up to spend more time with the new mom and baby.

Jewelry Gifts for New Moms

If you do want to give a woman jewelry to mark the occasion of her journey into motherhood, it should have sentimental value. Jewelry items that she can wear every day would be perfect! Here are some suggestions:

  •     A stackable ring with the baby’s birthstone and accented with diamonds
  •     Engraved pieces such as a ring or necklace with the baby’s name and birthdate
  •     Lockets with the baby’s picture inside
  •     Pendants with baby’s initials
  •     Simple jewelry such as charm bracelets centered on the new baby

We offer custom jewelry design so you can create a personalized gift for the new mother. For instance, we could create a custom piece featuring the baby’s birthstone matched with the mother’s birthstone. With custom design, the possibilities are almost endless. Keep in mind custom jewelry takes about 4 to 6 weeks.

Top Five Valentine’s Day Jewelry Presents

Pick the Perfect Gift from Preusser Jewelers

Valentines Day present

With Valentine’s Day coming up, you’re probably looking for present ideas that will convey your love and appreciation to your valentine. Jewelry presents are always a smart choice, but there are so many options: rings, pendants, bracelets, earrings, necklaces. Then there’s many different metals and stones to consider. This list of the top five jewelry presents from Preusser Jewelers will help you decide.

1. Stackable Rings

Wearing multiple rings on one finger has become a popular trend. Rings can be paired based on metal, gemstones, or personal taste. Whether you’re buying a ring to add to their collection or you are buying a new set, there are many styles to choose from.

Small bands are a simple option. Rings with complementing gemstones can produce a dramatic effect. Keep in mind that some rings of this type are worn further up the finger, and some are even worn on the thumb, so you may need to choose a size that is different than the recipient’s standard ring size. If you are uncertain about the sizing of your item, Preusser Jewelers suggests giving the ring, and then have her come in and let us fit the ring to the finger it’s going to be worn on. That way, her Valentine’s Day gift will be a perfect fit.

2. Stud Earrings

Simple stud earrings are always a classic gift. They are available in all three colors of gold, and platinum. Whether they are diamonds, or gemstones, studs are timeless! If they prefer a certain gemstone, or don’t seem to have a preference, you can never go wrong with studs!

3. Birthstone Jewelry

Speaking of gemstones, you usually can’t go wrong with a piece of jewelry featuring your close companion’s birthstone. You might choose a ring, pendant, bracelet, or earrings. Giving jewelry that includes someone’s birthstone is an easy way to make them feel special.

4. Heart Shaped Jewelry

Since the most common symbol associated with Valentine’s Day is a heart, it makes sense to give heart-shaped jewelry to mark the occasion. The most popular choices are rings, earrings, and pendants. The gemstones most often featured in this type of jewelry are diamonds, rubies, even morganite.

5. Bracelets

Other popular items given for Valentine’s Day are bracelets. Women’s bracelets come in a wide variety of styles, including bangles, charm, cuff, and the classic tennis. If your partner already has a small collection of bracelets, take a peak in their jewelry box to guide your selection of gold color, diamonds and gemstones.
