After having to carry a child around for nine months, every mother deserves a special gift on her first mother’s day. Of course, the newborn baby cannot give their mother a gift so the father, as a thank you for the child, gives a push present. A push present is a keepsake from the father to the mother for carrying and then pushing out the baby (or a C-Section exit!).
Whether it’s something that you want to give to the mother for her own personal use or for the baby’s use, the gift has to be absolutely perfect. Below are some creative first mother’s day gift ideas that dad’s can shop for.
Nothing says Happy Mother’s Day better than a thoughtful baby journal. This allows her to write down all her memories and thoughts in one place. She can also add certain mementos and photographs that she wants to remember (like her baby’s first burp).
Whenever she is feeling down and needs a little pick-me-up, she can open up her baby journal and reminisce the memories gathered since her baby’s birth.
After nine months of being tired and stressed, new mothers deserve to pamper themselves. Purchasing bath products and fragrances that the new mommy will love is a great way to say thank you. Fill up a gift basket with all her favorite perfumes, soaps, scrubs, lotions, body washes and then tie it up with a ribbon. Add a personalized Mother’s Day card for a special touch.
New mommy necklaces are the perfect first time mother’s day gift. These necklaces are nothing like the old birthstone necklaces that grandma used to give. These are new trendy mom necklaces that have the baby’s and mother’s name on them together. They come in a variety of different colors and styles.
For an extraordinary surprise, give the new mommy a photo frame with a picture of her and her newborn baby. For an extra classy and timeless look, get the photo printed in either sepia or black and white. The photo frame should be something unique and have an elegant design. This way, the mother can set the photo frame somewhere in the house and show it off to the rest of the world.
Alternatively, a digital photo frame can be purchased and filled up with pictures of the mother and baby. Adding sonogram photos to the digital photo frame’s memory would make the push present extra special.
A bouquet of flowers can bring a smile to any new mother’s face. Ideally, colorful flowers such as tulips, roses, orchids, daisies, lilies and carnations are a good bouquet pick. Alternatively, flowers that are in season can be purchased to give an extra special touch to the bouquet.
The first Mother’s day is meant to be truly special and one that the mother will never forget. Giving a unique and creative gift will ensure that she remembers her first Mother’s day for the rest of her life.
