In Asia it’s quite common to take a hand fan or electric fan with you during Summer time. I think this is a great idea, so here are some cute fans for you to buy or make.
ARTBOX (UK) is a good shop to look for cute electric fans and folding fans. I think that this original Sanrio fan with My Melody design looks very nice. The fan comes with a matching pouch, to easily store it in your bag.
At A Cute Shop (Taiwan) you can find this cute mini Hello Kitty Handheld Fan. It includes 3-speed settings and can even be used as a power bank for your phone.

These printable hand fans from PaperholicPrintables are quite affordable. It includes 6 animal fans – Rabbit, Koala, Frog, Pig, Panda, and Owl. Each fan comes with a front and back-side design.
