Best push presents

By Angela Garretson

Giving birth is one of the most strenuous, exciting, and life-changing things that anyone can do. While a new baby is the best gift, push presents are a way to show her extra love and appreciation after all she’s been through. Whether you’re giving her perfume, jewelry or a keepsake to remind her of the special day, showering her with thoughtful presents to celebrate her can go a long way in making sure that she feels special and cared for, too.
