Japanese Fan - Great gift idea for Girls, Ladies and Women

Updated on January 5, 2013

Japanese Fan

Japanese fan is one the greatest gift i ever received. I am so happy to have one.

There are two kinds of Japanese Fan, one is called sensu, the folded fan and the other one is paddle fan. Both of these Japanese fans are very beautiful. They are usually made of Japanese paper and a wood or bamboo.

Paddle fan are usually given as give away or token by individuals or companies during occasion or special events. It has a fixed round shape and had a wood handle on its base.

Japanese sensu fans are very beautiful and usually have great sweet scent. It is folded so it's very handy and can easily put inside the bag. Because of its fine and thin texture it can close and open with very little help. That's the best feature of Japanese sensu fan.

Paddle Fan

This is an example of paddle fan. Japanese paddle fan are round in shape with wood handle on its base. The art and design can be similar to folded Japanese sensu fan.

Plain paddle fan is great for personalized gift items because you can make your own design. I like this having on my office table it is also cute but I do not prefer holding it always.

One of the best gift I ever had

I have a japanese friend who gave me this japanese handheld fan. The fan was so pretty and the scent was so elegant. Very lovely fan. It is a lightweight, pretty fan that fits easily in a purse and opens and closes fairly smoothly.

Why I like Japanese Sensu Fan

The number 1 reason why I like Japanese sensu fan is that, unlike other fan who easily get grimy, the japanese sensu fan looks always new and clean. It does not get easily look dirty even after many days or months of use.

I really like japanese sensu fan because its very handy and cute. The design and color of Japanese sensu fan are very elegant and can compliment any dress I wear.

Whenever I close or open the fan, every girls around me stun at my handheld fan. I have seen only a few who have this so I think it is really special to have one.

It's very easy to use. Very easy to open and close the fan. If you are looking for a handheld fan for yourself or gift for a friend, you should definitely give it a try.

      I love Japanese fans. They are light and very easy to carry. They are also very well made.
