Throughout history, fans have been used for a whole slew of reasons: for dance, for fighting, for modesty…and of course, for cooling down! These convenient little tools can fold away to easily fit into a purse or clutch, and are a great way to beat the heat at weddings, or just when you’re on the go. Take a look at some of these sassy and zany hand fans! Enjoy!
