Happy Birth Day!

Welcoming a baby is one of life’s greatest joys. Commemorating that moment with what some call a “push present” is an added bonus! We had to share some essential push presents that every mom must have.

The Vintage Pearl necklaceJewelry with your baby’s name

Keep your baby close to you even when you can’t be together by wearing a necklace bearing his name and birthdate. We love the unique antique-looking tag-style necklaces from The Vintage Pearl.

Birthstone jewelry

You can also represent baby with a ring or necklace bearing his birthstone. The Luna and Stella line has all kinds of birthstone rings, necklaces and even cufflinks for dad that you can personalize with all your kids’ birthstones.

A kick-butt diaper bag

Push presents don’t have to be jewelry! You’ll use your diaper bag every day for the next at least two years. Double that for every additional child you have. So your diaper bag should be functional, comfortable to carry and, of course, fabulously stylish. High-end designers from Michael Kors to Betsey Johnson have drool-worthy diaper bag lines. We highly recommend rocking a kick-butt bag to tote baby’s stuff.

Spa day

After giving birth and welcoming a new baby, every new mom deserves a little pampering! Even if you don’t head to the spa the second you get released from the hospital, the idea of a future day at the spa will get you through some of those first few really tough sleepless nights with your newborn. Make it extra special by getting a sitter and inviting your man to join you for a romantic couple’s massage. After all, dad deserves it, too!

Baby keepsake kit

Never forget baby’s tiny handprints with a keepsake kit which can forever immortalize baby’s handprints and/or footprints in non-toxic clay. Many of the kits, like this one, come with a frame that you can include baby’s picture in, too.
