As we marched into Singapore’s 50th birthday, all newborns in 2015 will receive a special Golden Jubilee Baby gift set from Singapore. There were much noises generated on these gifts but when I got to see the gifts in person at their reveal last Sunday, I must say, these gifts are more essentials and special than what I’d expected. In fact, these gifts will help save new parents quite a sum of money too.
Ayra and Zara were both there with me and the littlest one attracted quite a few attention with her super friendly character, going around doing High-5s with other guests and showing her cute dance moves.
The 7 Essential Gifts for all Golden Jubilee Babies
Gift 1 – Practical Diaper Bag
This diaper bag (if I remember correctly) is by Skip Hop and if you were to buy this in store, it’ll cost about $90+. The bag resembles the Skip Hop Duo diaper bag.
Gift 2 – Red Baby Sling
This resembles the one I have and if its the same model, then its one cool baby sling! I used it on both Ayra and Zara and found the baby sling very practical and easy to use. I paid $199 for a similar baby sling and now all 2015 babies get to have one for free!
Gift 3 – Six Piece Baby Clothes Set
This set comprising of 2 rompers, 1 shirt and 1 shorts, a pair of mittens and socks. These I have to say are super cute and I can already imagine all the newborns wearing these cute rompers appearing on my Facebook and Instagram Timeline come 2015. Definitely something worth keeping inside Baby’s memory box.
Gift 4 – A baby shawl
Not sure if all the shawls will be the same design, but the one I saw has got cute lion print on it.
Gift 5 – A set of 5 Children’s Books
These books inspired by local iconic and fun places is good for Level 1 and 2 readers. Great for bedtime stories with your newborn; never too early to start them on reading you know.
Gift 6 – A scrapbook album
Being a scrapbooker myself, I think this is a great baby welcome gift for all new parents. I spent quite a lot of money and time putting my own scrapbooks together for my girls, if you want some design inspirations, you can take a look at some of mine here.
Gift 7 – A nice photo frame
Great for showing off your baby’s best photos at their first month or first year celebration or display the happy memories in the baby’s room.
There’s also a 8th gift in the set of gifts for all Golden Jubilee Babies in 2015 – a commemorative medallion. Another great keepsake in baby’s memory box. This will be revealed come 2015, probably to the first newborn come 1 Jan 2015. Wonder who will be this lucky Golden Jubilee Baby No. 1?
Personally I feel that these are great and practical gifts for newborns, and would save all parents more than $300 from buying of diaper bag, baby sling and the other essentials. I would be looking forward to receiving this gift set if I am popping a baby next year. (For the record, no we are not trying for the 3rd one please!)
All these 8 essential and keepsake-worthy gifts will come in a very pretty gift box which I love love love! This box can be used as the baby’s memory keepsake box to store all the precious things which can be gifted back to the baby when he/she grows up. You know, you can keep things like the tag worn at the hospital, the health booklet, first photo, deflated balloons from relatives/friends etc. And yes I keep these things inside my girls’ memory box! If only I had such a big box then I would have kept more things in there!
If any parents having more than 1 baby in 2015, and would like to give away one of the boxes, please please get in touch with me ok!
With free flow of candy floss, popcorns, airbrush tattoo service, crafting corner and fun photo spots, guests and their children had fun at the reveal. Kudos to the SG50 Golden Jubilee Baby Gift team for putting a nice HeyBaby families get together for this reveal.
