A small hostess gift–usually a small extravagance your hostess wouldn’t buy for herself–is considered appropriate to bestow when you first walk into a dinner party. Thoughtful and useful, hostess gifts reflect your good taste and appreciation. If you know your hostess well, you might focus on a favorite hobby, trip, culinary interest or even a sport she likes. Perhaps gardening essentials, Eiffel tower ring holders, a market tote from New Orleans or a runner’s cookbook? If you don’t know your hostess very well, fresh flowers are lovely but if you’re looking for something different, a Clipa purse hanger might be ideal. Clever and simple, it’s something she’ll use for years. In fact, this elegant but sturdy “can’t lose” purse hook will probably outlast her handbag. For that special hostess, a Clipa purse hanger is a memorable way to say “thank you for a wonderful evening.” To see the latest styles, click on the image or visit www.clipa.us
Pool decks can be wet and messy — not great for handbags and swim totes. Most purse hooks wouldn’t be up to the task of hanging a good sized purse, let alone a swim bag with a wet, heavy towel in it. And so many just won’t work on benches or rails. But of course, nothing else is a Clipa. Not only does it hold up to 45 lbs but patented Clipa will actually work on a variety benches, rails, stands, chaise lounge backs, tables, counters, shelves, pass through windows and many other spots. And because each one is made with meticulous care here in the USA, Clipa won’t tarnish, even in high humidity areas like swimming pools. This summer, bring cool to the pool with Clipa purse hangers.

When you really love something, you want everyone to know. Customer Cathy Harrington recently emailed us about discovering Clipa purse hangers: “I chose it over the cheaper brand right next to it. What drew me to it? Sleek, color choice, and it looked sturdy. What I don’t like about competitors is the flat disk that goes on the table. I had those and my handbag slipped off the table top and it didn’t support the weight of my handbag. So I bought the Clipa. Then the inevitable happened. My friends saw it, I passed it around and went back and bought 4 more. I will buy more as gifts, in fact, just bought more today.” Considering that your handbag will be you throughout your entire day, a well designed, reliable hanger for your most-loved accessory just makes sense.
