Jubilee Baby Gift items announced

A special medallion, multi-functional shawl, baby sling, set of baby clothes, diaper bag, scrapbook, photo frame and baby book are the eight items picked in a month-long vote that saw about 20,000 participate.

SINGAPORE: Parents of Singapore’s Jubilee babies born in 2015 will receive eight items in the Jubilee Baby Gift: A special medallion, multi-functional shawl, baby sling, set of baby clothes, diaper bag, scrapbook, photo frame and baby book.

The eight items were the top choices in a month-long vote that saw about 20,000 participate.

“The Jubilee Baby Gift symbolises our best wishes, hopes and aspirations from this generation of Singaporeans to the next. We hope that parents will enjoy the gift as they use the items to care for their babies, to capture happy memories for their families, and to commemorate their child’s birth in the Jubilee Year,” said Ms Anita Fam, Chairperson for the Jubilee Baby Gift Advisory Panel.

The final set of items in the gift package took into account a mix of the three elements – namely, to “Care” for the baby; to “Celebrate” the baby; and to “Commemorate” the baby’s birth in 2015 – for a balance of practical and meaningful items, the panel said.

More details on how parents will receive the Jubilee Baby Gift in 2015 will be announced later this year.
