Lanyard Question / Recommendation

I am looking for a cute lanyard to put my ID badge in. I have looked at a few online but can't decide what I want. I would love to hear what others have. Thank you.

Brighton has very nice looking lanyards. I cannot handle the ribbon ones around my neck so the options at Brighton are perfect for me.

I can't wear lanyards that are jewelry like because my hair gets tangled in them. I don't like the wide ribbon ones because they make me feel hotter during hot weather. I am taking a break from the breakaway lanyards because I tend to play with them until they won't stay hooked anymore. I like having a plastic badge cover to help protect my badge from breakage. I like a longer lanyard because it seems more comfortable and out of my way.

My sister's lanyard has a mini wallet for a badge cover. She can carry card or two, or maybe a dollar or two in it so that she doesn't need her purse. I haven't seen it, but if it is not too bulky, that sounds like a nice idea.

I bought mine from Etsy. One was like jewelry and I loved it until it started itching/scratching my neck.

I haven't bit the bullet yet on using one. Our old P gave us one that has our school name on it but it's so wide, I don't like having it on my neck. I have seen cute, sparkly, skinny ones at Micheal's so I may get one of those eventually. They seem so convenient but I feel like it would still annoy me & get in the way of my necklaces.

I have a Vera Bradley one. I like that it's lightweight. I had a nicer one that looked like jewelry and matched outfits better, but it was heavier and I was constantly taking it off because it bothered me.

Pretty much everyone in my school wears a Vera Bradley one. I have tried some different ones, but always go back to Vera.

DSS says I should start an etsy store. I'm moderately crafty.

You should! It can eventually be your retirement job.
