SINGAPORE: The votes are in - the item Singaporeans would most like to receive as a Jubilee Baby Gift is a special medallion or coin.

In a month-long vote that saw about 20,000 participate, the medallion garnered 61 per cent of the vote, above a multi-functional shawl, baby sling, baby clothes, diaper bag and scrapbook.

Less popular choices in the shortlist of 15 items included a sippy toy, wooden toy and a baby rattle.


The Jubilee Baby Gift - intended to be a small set of meaningful items given to any Singapore baby born in 2015 - is a community initiative led by the National Population and Talent Division as part of the nation's celebrations to commemorate 50 years of Independence.

The final list of items that will make up the gift package will be announced later this year.
