SINGAPORE - Babies born next year will receive eight presents as part of the Jubilee gift set which celebrates Singapore's 50th birthday.

These are: a special medallion; a multi-functional shawl; a baby sling; a set of baby clothes including a T-shirt and bottoms, rompers, mittens and socks; a diaper bag; a scrapbook for memories; a family photo frame; and a baby book.

These came out top during a month-long poll that ended in May, during which people picked the ideas they most wanted to be included in the gift set.

The gifts are "a balance of practical and meaningful items", said the National Population and Talent Division in a statement on Friday.

"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, who chairs the Jubilee Baby Gift advisory panel.

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