    For the future of table tennis hope in our country, I now give toy ping pong sets to all children if I have to buy gifts for them.

    For chinese it's usually Ang Pows or if you can get those infant gift sets that come with milk bottle, clothes..etc. You can go around John Little or Robinson to check them out..

    ang pow sounds good.. i don't want to get all those infant stuff cos chances are, he's probably going to be getting alot of those from other people...i'm pretty sure he bought alot for his daughter too!..is there a decent amount to put inside the ang pow?

    kiddy palace vouchers (or taka, robinson etc.. as long as they sell kids' stuff), or angpow are the best.

    Best to check with the rest of your frens as well... try not to duplicate the gifts...

    gift vouchers are also a good idea...

    Ang Pow is practical and no need to crack your head. If you're into photography and like to give the baby and the family a good present, why not consider take a series of photos for the family?

    you are right, you may not know those infant gift sets has change how many hands, usually the parents of newborn baby will just re-wrap the gift set and give it to another newborn baby.
