Don’t you love the perfect gift? Sometimes someone just gets you, and the gift says a million things without being expensive. I love being on the giving and receiving end of perfect gifts. Enter the Birthday Compass.

So last summer I got my friend horribly lost while driving in an area I have lived in for years. One absent minded turn and we were in a scene from a horror movie — driving in dense fog near a deserted canal. Can you say chain saw?

Anyway, we got out alive and Karen just gave me a compass for my birthday. Brought me right back to sheer panic! Still can’t explain how I got us so lost, but finally I have some direction in my life.
