There is absolutely no other feeling in the world that compares to those that happen when we become brand new parents. As with other firsts in our lives when that first baby arrives it is awesome.

No matter what you expect nothing can or will prepare you for parenthood.

I have compiled a list of beautiful gift ideas {also known these days as “push presents” or “push gifts”} that any new mother will love.

She will be so overwhelmed after the birth of your new baby she will not be expecting a thoughtful gift – especially for her.

The fact that you have preplanned purchased and have it right there for your special day will mean the world to her.

These are keepsakes that can be worn or displayed to commemorate the birth of your first child.

1. Sterling Silver Rhodium Plated Heart Family Locket Necklace

The second awesome feature is the fact that it holds 4 photographs. Which means all of your family members could potentially end up inside the locket.

Gifts Just for the New Mother

These are just for mamma not to share just to make her feel great for the great job she has done and will continue to do with your new baby.

5. Vegan Leather Baby Diaper Bag Backpack


Vegan Leather Diaper Bag Backpack


Just because she needs to carry the baby around as well as the kitchen sink now doesn’t mean she can’t do it in style.

The diaper bag pictured above is just one of so many available – you will know what she likes – this one is so well compartmentalized it is great.

There are 16 pockets in the diaper bag above a place for all the baby’s gear as well as her wallet, keys, phone, and mom’s water bottle.

The best thing about it is that it doesn’t look like a diaper bag so she will be able to use it with or without the baby in tow.

You can see this backpack diaper bag by clicking on the image above or go and check out the many backpack options here at Amazon.

6. Comfortable Clothing

Comfortable good looking clothing is a must especially in the early days after the birth of your baby.

Kindred Bravely has the most awesome range of comfortable clothing for new mothers. Items that can be worn day and night that never look slept in, as well as all the supporting items to wear underneath the clothing.

This brand came about from a mother that could not find anything suitable that she felt comfortable in that didn’t make her feel dreary and dowdy. You can see a range of the Kindred Bravely Nursing Range here.

8. Massage

You could organize a gift certificate for a message. Maybe you could have someone care for the new baby while you both go have a massage.

She could go with her mother or best friend then the frock up and go out for a coffee or lovely lunch.

You could even have someone come to your home.

9. Beauty Pamper

Pampering with a trip to the salon or the spa for a day – heaven – your wife or partner would love it.

Make sure you have a baby sitter in place so you can take her for a nice lunch or date night after the pampering.

10. Post Natal Care Pack

11. Professional Photo Shoot

Surprise her with a professional photoshoot for not only the new baby but for the three of you. As well as a lovely album you will be able to utilize the digital copies of the prints for many years to come.

12. Date Night

Date night – something for you both to look forward to.

It can be out of the house if you can get a sitter, but can just as easily happen at home. Order food from her favorite restaurant set the table, pull out the candles and relax.

Not up for that what about settling down in front of the television with some of your favorite snacks.

Step out to her favorite restaurant, take in a movie,

Gifts That Benefit the Whole Family

I don’t say this lightly the following suggestions will benefit everyone in the family at this very busy time in your lives.

Ever heard of the saying “HAPPY WIFE HAPPY LIFE” the follow will absolutely make her happy and in turn, you will all benefit.

7. Rocking Chair

Rocker chair and Ottoman, White with Gray Cushion

A rocking chair every new mom and dad needs one of these. It really does make those tough times with baby a lot easier to get through.

A chair like those does not need to be tucked away in the nursery. Why not let everyone have the benefit of it and use it in the living room, family room or wherever everyone cares for the baby.

Click on the image above to check out a massive range of rockers there is one for every decor, space, and budget.

13. Robotic Vacuum Cleaners

Robotic vacuum cleaners what a great idea for a new mother. New moms get told all the time “sleep when your baby sleeps”!

This is great advice but who cleans the house while she is asleep. We need to consider your pets as well if you have them you know how much hair they shed, this hair needs to be cleaned up every day especially with a new baby in the house.

Some of them even wash the floor after vacuuming. An awesome investment I say and there is one to suit all budgets. Check them out here at Amazon.

14. Clean House

You know if your partner will appreciate this type of gift or not. Believe me, some will not welcome a stranger in their home at this busy time – even to clean the house!

If she doesn’t want it now why not approach her in a couple of months and offer a huge spring clean before the baby gets on their feet!!

If you do surprise her shop around for recommendations if possible. Choose someone local, get references, tasks, and prices to be carried out at each visit.

15. Instant Pot


Instant Pot Smart WiFi 8-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker


Keeping in with the theme of helping around the home. I will guarantee that if she does not already have an Instant Pot she wants one. Especially now with the time and money this pot can save the family on preparing healthy meals in so many different ways.

Final Thoughts on First Time Mom Gifts from Husband

Whatever name it goes by these days a gift from a husband, push presents, or push gifts you know your partner’s wants, needs, and tastes.

You know whether she would love something practical for herself so she can rest and enjoy the coming days, weeks, and months with a new baby.

Or is she someone that would enjoy a complete surprise something not so practical but something that specially marks this occasion for both of you.

Maybe she is someone that would relish a little break from the baby and enjoy some relaxation time with the other person who is experiencing this awesome baby time with – her partner.

A beautiful gift for the first time mother just takes a little sleuthing, thought, and organization.
