The Messenger – a special gift designed to be regifted

Nomadic Gifts


If you want to give a gift that is truly original, The Messenger by Nomadic Gifts may be your answer. This beautiful bird sculpture can travel around the world, create communities, and keep giving even once regifted! Find out how.

Are you someone that likes to pass things on rather than throw them away? I’m big into the reusing scene. Most of the kids clothes and toys at my house are hand-me-downs and I in turn have bundled up all our preloved-but-still-like-new gear and handed them on to the next new mum. Sometimes I muse about where that Bunnikins toy ended up or who is now wearing that adorable animal baby hat.

Now there is The Messenger by Nomadic Gifts: the world’s first gift designed for regifting.

Nomadic Gifts

The Messenger is not a gift you have to wonder about once it has been passed on because you can just log in to a website and find out what your gift is up to now. Watch as it travels the world and touches many people’s lives.

Let me take you through how it works. The Messenger is a gorgeous sculpture, inspired by the work of carrier pigeons in war time. At its most basic it is a beautiful minimalist adornment for the home. In the centre there is a hole in which to place a rolled-up note. When you are ready to regift, simply place a new note inside and give it away.

Nomadic Gifts

Now here is the modern part: each Messenger has its own unique number printed on the tail. Register your Messenger online and set up a profile to begin your regifting legacy. Each new owner can join online to share photos and stories of your Messenger’s journey. What a truly innovative gift idea!

Nomadic Gifts

Not only is The Messenger a unique and modern gift but it is perfect for baby showers, christenings or special birthdays. As baby grows they can follow the journey of their bird around the world. Rather than collecting more things that fill up their room, they can make connections with people from around the world through this singular shared gift. What a wonderful concept!

You can pre-order your Nomadic Gift by backing their Kickstarter campaign. They accept pledges as small as USD$1 or pledge USD$79 or more to receive The Messenger in the very first batch to be shipped out.

She is often found riding her bike by the Yarra river with baby on back, heading for a good soy latte at the latest kid-friendly cafe. She wants to get there before it becomes cool. So Melbourne.
