This is a decent deal on the Cosatto Easi Peasi Changing Unit from Amazon UK. It was £99.99, but has been reduced to £69.99, that's with free delivery from Amazon too. The same unit is priced at £100 at most other stores, including Argos and Toys R Us.
From the colour scheme of this particular unit, I would say that it could be used by either gender of baby, but it does have a slightly more blu-ish tone so might be more appropriate for a boy baby.
I know not everyone forks out the cash for a changing unit, but from what I have heard, they are very very useful to have in your house with a baby. You can keep all your bits and pieces there, close to hand, such as your nappies, your baby nail clippers, your little hairbrush, etc.
