No one can deny that neck lanyards are effective in promoting a company, event, cause and other things that you want people to know. They are versatile and functional. Most receivers use them for several purposes other than holding something for them.
The lanyard is the favorite choice of most people in securing their IDs, badge, keys, small tools, gadgets and even drinking bottles. It is also the reason why most businesses choose the lanyards in promoting their company. The business owners know that people will find it difficult to throw away something useful. You might be surprised how other people use their neck lanyard.
A Belt Substitute
Did you ever get into one of those unfortunate situations when your belt let you down and you need something to keep your pants from falling down? Some people use their neck lanyards to help them get out of a possible embarrassing scenario.
You can slip your lanyard through the belt holes to secure your pants for you. Tie your lanyard like a belt, check if your pants won’t fall off, and you’re good to go. Avoid making unnecessary movements to make sure that your belt lanyard stays in place.
A Different Kind of Fashion Accessory
There are lanyards that are good enough to turn into fashion accessories. If you want to try something new and you are bored with your monotonous accessories, then let your imagination run wild and turn your lanyard into a unique fashion appliqué that you can use.
You can add a tiny pendant, wrap it around your wrist, and you got yourself a wrist choker. You can also use other things to make your lanyard choker wrist look fashionable and fun to wear.
You can also use it as a head band to keep your bangs from getting in your eyes as you try to focus on your work. You can tie your hair with it or you can include it as part of your braid for a different appeal.
As Wedding Favors
Neck lanyards can also be used as wedding favors, but you need to be a bit creative in turning them into a delightful memento. You can commission someone to enclose each lanyard in a gorgeous crocheted frame. Special guests can have their own unique lanyard material to take with them.
You can also use the lanyards as giveaways for special events or occasions to serve as mementos. You can add other accessories or decorations to turn the lanyards into something that guests will never forget – in a good way.
As a Strap Extension
It is difficult to carry a bunch of paper bags after ransacking the different shops for your fashion emergencies. You know that you need to carry your eco bag with you all the time, but that is not always the case. Perhaps you forget to bring your eco bags along most of the time.
If you have your neck lanyard with you, then you can use it to tie the handle of your paper bags together and create a strap that can help you carry most (if not all) of the bags in one go. You don’t need to worry about the possibility of losing a paper bag because you won’t drag your things on your way to your car.
Most lanyards are made from durable materials, and there are some people who use them as binders. Like the strap extension, you can use the lanyard to tie your books and carry them with ease. You can also use it to tie other things that you need to secure.
There are other unconventional ways of using your neck lanyards and some are just waiting for you to discover them.
