      The compass is nice - but the engraving is very hard to see.

      Nice Retirement Gift
      March 10, 2021

      The first compass I received had some scratches and initials inside the lid instead of the monogram I ordered. I called customer service, and received the new product the next business day! They went above and beyond to get my order out quickly and make it right! This is the second gift I have bought from them, and the quality shines!

      I have not yet heard from the recipient of this gift, so I cannot provide feedback on the appearance or quality of the product. However, I was very impressed with the customer service when my personalization request did not transmit with my order. I received a call to provide the information. It has been a pleasure ding business with Gift Tree.

      I got this for my husband for our 5th anniversary. The compass is relevant to his time in the Army. He taught a land navigation class and used compasses. This was a perfect combination.

      I purchased this for my son who recently joined the Navy. It is beautiful and I couldn’t be happier with the quality. The size is perfect and the engraving adds such a wonderful personal touch. I know that he will treasure it for years to come. Hopefully, he will heed the message, too:
      Always find your way back home.

      Love This Compass!
      November 6, 2019

      I purchased this compass for my grandson for Christmas, and I could not be happier! Great quality and very fast shipping. I selected to have my grandson's initials added to the compass, which I thought would be stamped. When I received my compass, I found that they are engraved, which makes this gift even better. I highly recommend this compass to anyone looking for a unique, quality gift.

      When the compass arrived, I was surprised at how beautiful and sturdy it was. Looks even better than in the pictures. I had an issue with engraving (before it shipped) and customer service was amazing. Very easy to work with. Fast turn around time too.

      I chose this as an anniversary gift for my husband. It was perfect, and it meant a lot to me to give him a gift that would last. It was presented well in it's box and the card gave it a very expensive and quality look. I will definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a unique, quality and personal gift that you could not find in any store. I will be shopping again for a gift soon, because I have a big family:)

      Excellent gift for young adults starting out.
      January 20, 2016

      I was looking for a gift for my son having just been accepted to medical school. I loved the symbolism and wrote in the gift card, even though it sounded corny, I said "You found your direction, enjoy the amazing journey!"

      Great Anniversary Gift

    • G&ES Department @ NEIU
      The Perfect Award for a Geographer
      May 13, 2015

      My department procured these to present to our department's exceptional students at our annual Student Award Ceremony.
      They are beautifully crafted and the initials are a great touch. The students were overjoyed and commented how nice these looked. Definitely glad we found these!
      My only complaint is that the shipping may throw off the needle (banged around during transit) and it may have to be re-set. Initially, I thought it was broken and would need a replacement. Luckily, it's very easy to do this and works perfectly.
      Will re-order next year!

      Wonderful Success
      February 17, 2015

      I was very anxious about sending a gift that I had not hand selected from a company I had never used. All my concerns were a waste of time. My very picky friend was delighted. He said it was a beautiful wood that he would be proud to display on his desk. I thank you so much for providing a special gift to a special friend!

      February 13, 2015

      My husband is a forester and I thought this gift would be a great piece he could either use, or simply place with the rest of his cherished findings/collectables. Upon receiving the compass, I was pleased by it's appearance, even though the engraving is a little hard to see, but overall very pleased. Great gift idea!

      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

      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!

      This was a beautiful presentation and wonderful for an executive's desk or office. Just loved it.

    • Bill
      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.

      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.
