While holding your baby after a C-section can be a gift itself, some women also get treated with a push present. Although they didn’t push the baby out, having the baby was still quite the journey during the procedure!
Here are eight push present ideas to consider if you’re shopping for your Partner soon.
Great Push Presents to Give After Your Partner Has a C-section
Keepsake jewelry always makes a nice push present. This can be a ring with mom and baby’s birthstone, a necklace, or a bracelet. Think about what she wears most and have a piece of jewelry made for her. It’s something that she’ll have forever! Etsy has some great ideas to get you started.
If you don’t want to go the birthstone route and your partner loves diamonds, they are a girl’s best friend. You may decide to go big or go home!

- Spa Day
Pregnancy and having a C-section is grueling on the body. A spa day when mom can pamper herself and relax would be much appreciated. Whether it’s a massage, facial, mani/pedi, or a combo package, treat her to some much-needed R&R. Be sure to give a gift certificate and not schedule appointments. You want her to be able to do it on her time, so she can get the most benefits and not feel as though it’s just another appointment she has to squeeze in.
- Personal Coupon Book
You’ve heard the saying, “It’s the thought that counts”. When it comes to push present ideas, putting a lot of thought into a personal coupon book will mean a lot. Please think of the things she would enjoy…a night of not getting up for a feeding, a laundry-free weekend, dinner taken care of for a week, etc.. Whatever you decide to include, make a coupon book she can use whenever she wants. This gift is great if you want to give something but don’t want to break the bank.
- Slippers and Fuzzy Socks
When you get home after giving birth, comfort is key. Nothing says cozy like a pair of fuzzy socks or slippers. Fuzzy socks are also a nice little touch to go along with the slippers. They’ll make your partner feel warm and cozy 24/7.
- Designer Purse
Did someone say Louis Vuitton? If your partner loves designer purses, treat her to one as a push present. Whether it’s a Coach bag, Michael Kors, or a Louis Vuitton, she’ll love having a bag she can use regularly and be reminded that it was a push present from you!
- New Coffee Maker
Being a new mom means sleep deprivation. For many, that translates into more coffee! So, why not give a new coffee maker as a push present? We’re not talking about one of those regular coffee makers where you brew a pot. Boring! Why not get one that can froth milk and make lattes and other fancy barista drinks? This is a fun gift she’ll enjoy well after pulling those all-nighters with your little one.
- Gift Basket
Choose a theme and either make a gift basket or have one made. It can be a basket of all relaxing items, including an eye mask, candles, bubble bath, etc. Or you can choose a basket of cozy items like a fuzzy blanket, pajamas, and a robe. After you pick your theme, look for items that would fit perfectly to make a thoughtful push present.
- Special Day
Give your partner tickets for a special day with you or maybe an event coming to town. The idea is for her to have a special day without worrying about changing diapers or cleaning spit-up for a few hours. If you’re one of those people who like to give experiences over tangible gifts, this push present was made for you!
When Do You Give a Push Present?
Giving your push present is generally not recommended right after the baby arrives in the hospital. Wait a day or two until your partner has time to settle and try to rest, or have it waiting for her when she gets home. It will be a big surprise, especially if she thinks you will give her something at the hospital.
You don’t have to spend much money when giving a push present after your partner has a C-section. Think about the things she loves the most and go that route. They’ll be most appreciated.
