Many husbands have accepted the tradition of giving a push gift when their wife gives them a child. If you are one of them you must be looking for the best push gift ideas for wife. I have checked many forums and chats about great push gifts for new moms and I have gathered the best ideas below.
A Little History On How Push Gifts For Wife Originated
You’ll be surprised to find that push gifts were originally gifted as a way of expressing gratitude towards the woman who gave birth to a baby boy.
We all know how in the past a son was especially appreciated. It was the legitimate heir, the one to carry out the family name further. So if the wife gave birth to a son it was “rewarded” with a gift. So push gifts were reserved only for a male child.
In time this changed and push gifts started to be given as way of saying “Thank you” to the wife who bared the child for 9 months and went to a, very often painful, labor to deliver the child.
It all depends on the couple of course, but I am convinced that every new mom will be happy to receive a push gift deep inside – even if she openly expresses against it.
It doesn’t have to be a big gift, a small one will suffice – just to show love and appreciation for the scary process that she goes through to bring a baby to this world.
The Best Push Gift Ideas For Wife – To Help You Pick A Really Good Push Gift
Well there are some push gifts that every woman would love to receive. And women have expressed their wish lists all over the internet – and I have picked and collected the best ones right here.
Personalized Baby Feet Necklace
As you can see from the image the baby feet pendant can be personalized by engraving the baby’ name and date of birth. Actually you can engrave whatever you want, like just the name on one foot or if you have 2 children both names – it’s your choice. You can engrave up to 9 characters which I believe is sufficient for any name.
The personalization part makes this necklace unique, only one like it will exist in the world which gives it additional value.
Another unique feature of this necklace is the ability to choose a Swarovski birthstone according the month of the birth.
This necklace will arrive with a gift pouch but I wouldn’t rely on it, one customer was not very satisfied with the quality of the gift wrap so better find amore appropriate gift box. It will make the gift more appealing.
It’s a good size pendant, not too big, not too small and you ca choose the length of the chain.
Overall this is a very sweet push gift for pregnant wife, a gift different from the others by making it more personal, the price is affordable and it matches the occasion perfectly. Any woman would love to receive it as gift.

Best Baby Glider For Nursery – Top 3 Choices
Here is a big push gift idea for wife! A baby glider is SO useful to have. When my sister had her babe she almost broke my working chair by trying to rock the baby in it. It just was not in our budget to get a baby glider but if you can don’t hesitate to get one. It will make life so much easier for the new mom.
