6 Push Gifts For Expecting Moms This Mother's Day & Beyond

Treat yourself or nudge your partner to.


Push gifts are given by a spouse or to one’s self in order to celebrate the immaculateness of womanhood i.e. growing and birthing a new life. We’ve seen them on a more luxurious scale but it doesn’t have to be anything as extravagant as a new car or even jewelry. We’ve also seen the world of delusion in which people have made it out to be a controversial topic as though women didn’t come with dowries not all that long ago, which proves their value to the families or husbands they’re married off to. While I won’t waste time on that, what I will say is if they’re not for you, don’t invest in one but also don’t comment on your feelings towards other women who receive them either.

You can argue with your mama or Beyoncé, who was once rumored to have negotiated in the terms of her prenup that Jay-Z must pay her $5 million per child. We know all too well that giving birth is not for the faint of heart, and for Black women in particular the odds are even less in our favor when it comes to maternal-fetal mortality rates. Not to alarm anyone unnecessarily, but whether a mom-to-be desires children or not, they are entitled to a push gift. FYI, you don’t have to have "pushed" your baby out in order to be gifted – they’re for C-section mommies just the same.

Now that we’ve had that discussion, let's further discuss acceptable push gifts. This is for you and your partner to decide, however, we’re sure you’re open to suggestions and we have them. Here are six push gifts that you can either treat yourself to (hello, single mamas) or nudge your partner in the direction of.

Wine Subscription Box

McBride Sisters

Now that I’m aware that even breastfeeding moms are able to have their wine and sip it too (without pumping and dumping), I strongly suggest a one-year subscription to a wine club. This subscription by McBride Sisters is a perfect choice.

Limited-Edition Zodiac Ornament Collection

Joanna Buchanan

For the Astro-mom, this is the perfect gift. These blinged-out ornament pendants will make for the perfect addition to your first Christmas and add a little glamor to the tree.

“On the Day You Were Born” Print


Another gift for the Astro folk, especially the ones who can give you the entire rundown on their birth chart – and did I mention? One of my favorites! This is a canvas print showcasing the stars at the exact time your little one was brought into this world. OurLoveWasBorn has various sizes and price points that may better suit your needs.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
