25 Amazing Push Presents for Dad That He’ll Surely Love

Traditionally, push presents came in the form of jewelry pieces that men would give to their partners following childbirth, but have become increasingly popular in the last couple of years as a way to celebrate and commemorate someone’s entry into parenthood, dads included.

Fathers are in for the ride of parenthood just as much as mothers are, and have probably been just as engrossed in all things baby for the last 9 months or so.

Finding an amazing push present for a new dad can be tricky, especially if you aren’t sure of what he likes. A good gift for a dad would be something that doesn’t take too much time to enjoy, considering how full his hands are going to be with a baby around. While a push present doesn’t have to be baby-related, you can go ahead and get him something that he can share with his baby.

Here are 25 push presents that the new dad in your life will surely appreciate.

  1. Parenting Books

Most parenting books you’ll find on the shelves today are geared towards pregnancy and motherhood, leaving new dads feeling a bit clueless and left out in the parenting literature department.

Gift the new dad or dad-to-be in your life a title geared specifically towards fatherhood such as this title here.  And even if you aren’t a dad, you’ll find some great parenting advice from it too!
