What are all of the items used for breeding, and what is there purpose? I already know Destiny Kot (passes down IVs) and Everstone (passes down Nature), but are there any more? Specifically, is there an item that passes down the parent's gender or gives the baby the opposite gender?

The Power Items don't guarantee a perfect IV in that stat, they guarantee that the IV of that Stat is passed down.
Uh, the Shiny Charm is a Key item, it can't be held by a Pokémon. Anyway, its purpose is to increase the Shiny rate

Unfortunately, there is no item that passes down gender.
Aside from the Destiny Knot and the Everstone, the Power Weight, Lens, Band, Bracer, Anklet, and Belt, collectively known as "EV-enhancing items" or "the Power Items," are guaranteed to pass down one IV in the stat of the EV that it boosts. If that makes sense. For example, when I was trying to breed a Pumpkaboo for Trick Room, I used a Power Anklet (which normally boosts Speed EVs) to pass down the parent's Speed IV, which was zero. Using the Power items was basically the only reliable way to IV breed before Gen VI.
