actually had a reader write and ask if i had a recommendation for an attractive fan, and since there’s a legit heatwave happening in LA right now– i figured it was a great time to do a roundup! sadly in general, there aren’t a ton of modern fan options, but i sifted through the minefield of cheap plastic fans and found some pretty good ones!
the fancier fans definitely come with fancier price tags, but it’s for sure one of those things that you wouldn’t be replacing annually like you might with the cheap fans, so i think it’s worth the extra expense if you can swing it.
also! some of these are smaller desktop fans which i almost excluded, but i think they can be super helpful if you stick them on your nightstands during bed etc, so just make sure if you’re purchasing one you’re looking at the size :)
