Personalized Handkerchief

Posted by

It is amazing how adding a personalized message or monogram to a handkerchief makes it an instant keepsake or treasured accessory. Each of The Handkerchief Shop's handkerchiefs are made locally with 100% cotton and beautiful laces, all of which I hand select to create lovely keepsakes. We embroider your personalized messages and monograms using fine embroidery threads in a rainbow of colors to match any of you color details.

When Is A Personalized Handkerchief An Appropriate Gift To Give?

A personalized handkerchief can be gifted for a variety of special occasions and reasons. They can be given as a special gift for a wedding, anniversary, graduation, holiday, to show appreciation, as a comfort gift or to celebrate someone's personal endeavors. An embroidered handkerchief is something small that can be folded and tucked into a person's pocket, dress or handbag which makes it a portable memento for them to carry with them. When you add personalized embroidery to a handkerchief, it instantly turns a beautiful handkerchief into a wonderful heirloom to be passed down to the next generations.

What Is A Personalized Handkerchief?

A personalized handkerchief is a handkerchief that is embroidered with something that is meaningful to the person you are giving it to. The handkerchief can be embroidered with the recipients monogram, a special date, an inside joke or a loving message. The reason for the personalization can be to make the person smile, bring them comfort, show them support, remind them they are loved or just as a special accessory detail, as with a monogram.
