Handkerchiefs as Gifts - Boxed Handkerchiefs - Gift sets

A boxed set of handkerchiefs makes an ideal gift for men. If you are looking for a Christmas gift, anniversary gift, birthday gift, father's day gift or even a wedding gift a set of handkerchiefs may be the answer. Let the gift occasion be a guideline for the price of the handkerchief set you purchase. A man may not spend a small fortune on buying his own handkerchiefs but he will almost certainly appreciate good quality handkerchiefs as a gift.

Nothing says it better as this quote from Alan Fusser:

"A plain white handkerchief is the sure sign of a confident and elegant dresser."

      I remember when mom and dad always used handkerchiefs. In today's world, kleenex seem to work pretty well. At least there's no laundering or ironing involved like with the hankies. Angel Blessings**
