      Unique Gift May 22, 2014

      I purchased this compass as a High School graduation gift. I loved the idea of a compass to signify "finding your way" for a future college student. It is beautiful. The wood is distressed to get the antique look, yet it is elegant. The engraving was perfect. I would definitely purchase this gift again.

      A wonderful gift for the outdoorsmen. April 3, 2014

      I found this online while looking for a set of personalized groomsmen gifts. I was hoping that the quality would be top notch as I couldn't "see" them in person because it was an interwebs purchase. But when they showed up, all my concerns vanished as they are well made and was exactly what I had hoped for when I ordered. Thanks Gift Tree for helping to make our special day even better. Cheers!

      Unique and Special Gift February 8, 2014

      I saw this on GiftTree's website and it fell right into my search: to find something special yet unique for my son that had recently moved to a different state. Order process was easy, quick, and gift arrived as promised even after a holiday Monday. My son was thrilled with it and plans to display it in his new apartment so all can see - he even was impressed with how well 'it REALLY works!" Ha Point being - the short poem I included which essentially added the meaning of him always being able to find home. Thanks GiftTree! You have so many great gifts - at great buys - for those great people that you want to feel special - for any (or no) reason at all. ~Julie

      Better than expected!!! December 17, 2013

      After ordering and returning another reproduction compass, I was thrilled to see this one works. It is exactly as pictured and they got the engraving just right both times. Delivery updates and timely delivery too make me one happy customer. Thank you!

      Beautiful Presentation November 19, 2013

      Best reproduction I've ever seen! October 1, 2013

      This reproduction of Captain William Clark's "Corps of Discovery" compass is very close to the original. It's basic shape and design fits compasses made in the 18th century by such makers as Nairne and Blunt, and very much like one in the Smithsonian attributed to a Rev War Captain McClellan.

      Overall, I'm very happy with this little guy and plan to use it in the woods (alongside my Silva until I can trust it completely!). It's got a lot going on if you're into history.

      Beautiful wood September 28, 2013

      I ordered the compass and two leather passport holders, very pleased with both, the compass is beautiful and the wood is even more beautiful in person. The passport holders are gorgeous really nice leather the package they came in was so cute and when I opened it the smell of new leather hit my nose and I was happy. Can't wait to use them. Was a little unsure when I ordered these wasn't sure they would be good quality, but they are. Overall very satisfied customer.

      Excellent inexpensive gift April 21, 2013

      I knew the recipient would receive more gift baskets in hospital than he could use, and this made a good alternative. Arrived on time and safe. Thanks for excellent service.

      Great Gift February 21, 2013

      I purchased this for my husband as since he is really into nautical themed stuff and he loved it! It was unique and well-made. The packaging wasn't great, but the compass itself made up for it!

      Lovely Gift January 31, 2013

      I ordered two of these compasses for two different people and am very pleased with the product and presentation. I had them both engraved, and am pleased with the quality. Didn't like that I had to pay for shipping twice instead of having them both shipped in the same box (they would have easily both fit in one). Also had difficulty with FedEx on delivery.

      Beyond words Beautiful and Masculine January 23, 2013

      I had this personalized and sent to my son for his birthday. He has a new office/den with a somewhat nautical theme. He loved it and said it was esquisite. My son doesn't talk like that! This one was so special and looked so good with the engraving, he even got a bit chocked up. I don't think it gets any better. I will forever shop with you for my kids. You has such unique and wonderful gifts at very reasonable prices. You make my life much easier and you ALWAYS deliver on time.
