Don’t Be Him w/ 14 Fans for Summer at Your Office

 http://cache.gawker.com/assets/resources/2008/06/sweating.jpeg

Summer in the office is never comfortable, it is always one of two extremes. Really hot and stuffy or really cold with a constant wind blowing against your face. The great thing about the two extremes is that they are never consistent. They switch off every other day! The best way to prepare for these varying temperatures is keep a sweater or jacket at the office (preferably a neutral color that goes with everything) and a good ole fan. I remember the fan in my room growing up seemed to weigh 50 pounds and would take up half of my desk. Luckily, the days of those fans are over. Get ready for the heat with these!

Frosty Fan Packs

Use these little guys in addition to your normal fan. And if you are absolutely dying of heat or need to walk away from your desk, stick one in your pocket or maybe to the back of your neck.

Mini Cooling Fan Pen

Yeah, I’m not sure how well these would keep you cool but maybe if you held it close to your face long enough it would dry the sweat dripping on your forehead during that boring, long meeting. Also important is the portability option and very cheery colors.

Hello Kitty Fan

What is it about Hello Kitty that makes her an inspiration for every gadget? You really could have an entire Hello Kitty life if you wanted to. Either way, she’ll keep you nice and cool and be your friend on your desk.

Brando USB Big Fan

Now this is a winner. Great design, great colors, and it’s BIG! Did I mention it plugs into your USB? or runs on batteries? And you can hang it on a wall? And it’s only $11.50? I want it.

Transformers Hand Fans

This is for when you get bored and you decide “Hey I actually don’t care what my boss thinks of me at all.” Remove the top and start cooling down.

Blowit Fans

Made for musicians rocking out too hard, you can use it too! Stick it on that pipe next to your desk or maybe some other cylindrical object. It may even be powerful enough to blow your hair hard enough and make you feel like a rockstar at your desk.

Thanko USB Fan

Okay so the lights aren’t super cool but for a USB fan it is smart. Cool down + get four extra USB slots! (or get the version with the 7 in 1 card reader) I’m always up for plugging more things into my computer at once.

Aqua Fan

619262m

It cools you down and allows you to spray yourself in the face for 8 bucks. Gizmodo called a crappy fan and I semi-agree..except for that water feature.

Propello Cageless Fan

Desk_Fan

Yeah it’s expensive and I don’t know if it works any differently, but a cageless fan? That just sounds cool.

Zippi Fan

zippi-plat

Now this looks nice. Sleek design, cloth blades, it packs a lot of punch for a small fan. Plus it’s endorsed by Treehugger..for all you green loving people.

Otto the Fan

This one wins best design for me. It has some sort of retro feel to it that I love love.  It’s pretty expensive, but if you’re trendy office it’s an easy addition.

The UFO Webcam (+ FAN!)

It reminds me of something creepy off of Minority Report or War of the Worlds are something. (Anyone know what I’m talking about?) Anyways, it’s a double whamo. Get both the gadgets you need on one stand, taking up one USB port. Just don’t go to your computer at night and get scared by it’s creepy eye.

Logisys Ergonomic Cool Fan Mouse

They are cheap but a fan that ventilates your hand does sound nice. I’m not sure of the comfort level of the mouse in general but I sure don’t enjoy a sweaty mouse.

The Wi-Fi Hand Fan

wi-fi-fan_01

Yeah this one is manual but come one! You need some exercise. Plus, could life get any nerdier? You need this fan.

So maybe your boss just wants you to get a normal fan, know crazy stuff. We sell the Number one fan for Summer (based on Amazon’s ratings) on our site. The Holmes 16″ Three-Speed Adjustable Oscillating Floor Fan. Definitely an excellent choice. We’ve got other fans too, check them out here
