A push present is a present a partner or family members give to a mother to mark the occasion of her giving birth.
A precious new baby is, of course, a beautiful reward to both parents, but if there is anyone who deserves to be shown a gift of appreciation it’s mom who spent 9 months crafting life and several hours in the delivery room. Labor and delivery of a child are one of the most physically exhausting and strenuous tasks a woman goes through in life. Jewelry is the most popular push present since gemstones and diamonds imbued symbolic meanings.
Diamonds – Embodies true love.
Sapphire – Considered to symbolize fidelity.
Pearl – Association with innocence.
Emerald – Possess healing powers.
Ruby – Offers safety, peace, wellness, wisdom, and success in love.
Peridot – Promotes good luck and confidence.
Aquamarine – Provides courage, mental clarity, and good health.
Garnet – Associated with clergy and nobility.
Opal – Symbol of hope, purity, and truth.
Turquoise – Believed to ward off the “evil eye”.
Our Favorite Push Present Story:
When Jena Slosberg of Bedford, N.H., gave birth in March, she endured a labor that lasted 17 hours. But her discomfort was ultimately worth it, quite apart from the arrival of her daughter, Marin. In the recovery room, her husband, Paul, presented her with a pair of diamond earrings. “I was on cloud nine,” Ms. Slosberg said. “It was the perfect present to make a frazzled, sleep-deprived, first-time mommy feel absolutely glamorous.”
