Push gifts are meant to be gifted to new moms just after they have given birth. It is given as a token of appreciation for bearing child and enduring birth process by the father of the child. Besides the father, it can be given by maternal and paternal grandparents of the child as well.
Push presents can be given to the mother prior to delivering the baby, immediately after delivery while still in hospital and after getting back to home. Every well-wisher comes in with lots of beautiful presents that make the new mom feel great. However, many a times, some presents are not practical and end up being piled up in closets. Push gifts should be practical, personalized and exciting for the emotionally strained mom.
