This sentimental but minimal True North DIY compass keychain is the perfect answer. Made with rustic looking metals, this keychain is perfect for any man or woman who may not want to wear tons of sparkles and glitter in their pocket. A simple, to-the-point message (plus a working compass) for the one you love!
