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.
